➤Liquid Liposomal Vitamin D3
➤More Potent than Capsules or Tablets
➤Delivers Nutrients directly to the bloodstream and cells
➤2,000IU Easy to Absorb Vitamin D3 per Serving
➤Great for Digestive Problems
➤No Need to Swallow Capsules
Ekolife Natura Liposomal Vitamin D3 is an ultra bio-available liquid Vitamin D3 supplement. Wonderful for anyone with digestive problems, or for those with difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets, Liposomes are easily absorbed and the products encapsulated by Liposomes achieve much higher blood dosage levels than found in non-encapsulated products such as traditional tablets.
Vitamin D’s major function is to help the body better absorb calcium. This helps build bone at a younger age. The consequences of vitamin D deficiency are disturbance of calcium metabolism and bone loss, leading to fractures, mineralization defects, which may lead to softening of the bone in the long term, and muscle weakness, causing falls and fractures.
Vitamin D is important in every phase of life. Many people turn out to have a low vitamin D status. It’s a vulnerability that occurs worldwide, even in sunny (sub) tropical countries. Vitamin D3 is the best form of vitamin d. In addition, it has a beneficial effect on the immune system and the process of cell renewal.
- Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function.
- Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal teeth.
- Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
- Vitamin D has a role in the process of cell division.
- Vitamin D contributes to normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus.
- Vitamin D contributes to normal blood calcium levels.
- Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
The attraction of using liposomes to deliver nutrients, supplements and drugs into the body is that they are easily absorbed by the gastro-intestinal tract, with the additional encapsulated molecules being also absorbed at the same time. This overcomes the barrier that faces many beneficial products of getting absorbed into the body at effective levels. The body will often break down many complex molecules before they are absorbed or will just not readily absorb them and so absorption levels are reduced.
However, Liposomes can also go further, to assist to deliver the active molecules to the cellular sites of action where the body requires a high level of the nutrient. The lipid bilayer of the liposome can fuse with other bilayers such as the cell membrane itself, thus delivering the liposome contents into the cells.
Liposomes are made from extracts of lecithin which contain phospholipids, mixed with other molecules that we may wish to attach. Liposomes vary in size from low nanometer up to tens of micrometers. When combined with water, phospholipids form microscopic structures with a central void encapsulating water and within that water we can dissolve other molecules, such as Vitamin C which we would like to have absorbed easily into the body. Whilst hydro-philic molecules can be held within the encapsulated water, hydrophobic chemicals can be dissolved into the membrane itself and in this way liposomes have the ability to carry both hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules. Due to their unique properties liposomes are used for the formulation of drugs, food supplements and cosmetics.
The formation of liposomes requires significant levels of energy. Phospholipids are combined with water and energy is applied in a controlled process using sonification or an ultra-turrax. The lipid vesicles will then form into either single, or multiple, bi-layers separated by water molecules. This process is controlled to create particles small enough to be readily absorbed into the blood stream.
