Liposomal Encapsulation Explained

If you keep up with the world of vitamins, supplements, and nutraceuticals, or even the broader nutritional community, odds are you’ve heard a thing or two about liposomes. Now it is entirely common to see liposomal versions of all the most popular nutrients and herbal extracts. However, in many cases the exact details and benefits of liposomal encapsulation are poorly explained, or not explained at all. This leaves many people wondering: what is a liposomal supplement, and how exactly do they work to provide superior bioavailability?

Liposomes are fat molecules which are comprised of multiple layers of polar membranes known as lipid bilayers containing an aqueous solution in the center. In fact, the name liposome is derived from the Greek roots of lipo, meaning fat, and soma, meaning body.

The image on the right illustrates the spherical formations of these lipid bilayers, as well as propensity for them to encapsulate nutrients and other compounds within the suspended central aqueous solution. Once contained in these liposomal layers, the overall bioavailability of these nutrients is greatly improved when taken orally, both by means of protecting the fragile nutrient molecules from digestive processes, and by facilitating absorption in the mouth.1

The entire purpose of liposomal supplements is to achieve this encapsulation and enhancement of bioavailability, but this is where many people get concerned. How do supplement manufacturers ensure that this process is actually occurring in the their liposomal products? While it may sound as if something so microscopic in nature would be extremely complicated to achieve, this is not quite the case.

Liposomal supplement production begins with the use of lecithins and phospholipids (a particular class of lipid capable of forming bilayers) found primarily in various seed oils. Soy, sunflower, and canola oils are the most commonly used, with sunflower oil being the most preferred because of its particularly high phosphatidylcholine content. Nutrients suspended in an aqueous solution are then emulsified with this phospholipid-bearing oil. The lecithin content acts as a surfactant to facilitate the suspension of water in oil, thus creating liposomally encapsulated nutrient solutions.1

Fairly complicated stuff, indeed, but far from rocket science! In fact, humans have known about the process of emulsification for decades. It was only somewhat recently in the late 1990’s that this fundamental idea has been applied to the production of drugs and supplements as a means of improving bioavailability, but so far the results have been extremely promising.1
