Bring the Power of Intravenous Therapy into a Convenient Oral Liposomal Delivery
Liposomes are microscopic single- to multilayer spheres made of phospholipids (the basic building blocks of cell membranes). Phospholipids encapsulate a compound, such as glutathione, in order to bypass the digestive processes that normally degrade or limit the compound's absorption. Liposomes demonstrate the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly, and enhance lymphatic circulation of therapeutic compounds. Additionally, the phospholipids that compose the liposome fuse with and feed the cell membranes. Providing phospholipids in this way ensures proper membrane function to facilitate the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins. In fact, phospholipid therapy, using both injectable forms and oral forms, has a long and solid clinical history for repair and maintenance of liver function, circulatory health, and neurological health.
At their highest expression, liposomes bring the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery. However, all liposomes are not created equally. Most liposomes on the market use low grades of phospholipids, e.g. raw lecithin, instead of the high-phosphatidylcholine phospholipid mixes necessary for a good liposome. Nutraceutical manufacturers also typically use cheap shear methods resulting in large (200–600nm), poorly-absorbed particles.
Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ improves upon basic liposomal delivery technology with smaller, more stable, tightly distributed single-layer spheres (called unilamellar vesicles) made from the highest-grade ingredients available. These small vesicles begin absorbing as soon as they hit your mouth, so you can get high absorption before they are altered by the harsh processes in the intestines. Quicksilver Scientific uses the same high-tech equipment, rigorous processes, and tight particle size controls used by pharmaceutical companies. Don't settle for the low-grade products now flooding the market, and certainly don't fall for the ploy that you can make your own "bathtub gin" with a blender and a sonic jewelry cleaner! Look for the clear difference of Quicksilver Delivery Systems™.
