At the CBD Garage, Quicksilver products are some of our most popular items. There is a reason for that! Quicksilver Scientific’s priority is ensuring that customers receive the maximum benefit from their products.
Since most dietary supplements don’t get absorbed well by the body, scientists have experimented with different ways to make them more bioavailable. Bioavailability is the ability of a supplement to be absorbed and used by the body.
The actual bioavailability of supplements based on many factors including nutrient type, manufacturing process, and delivery system.
Luckily, nature has given us the perfect blueprint for a solution…the liposome.
Back in the 1960’s, manufacturers began to experiment with a process called liposomal delivery to increase a supplement’s bioavailability.
Liposomes for Bioavailability
To understand how liposomes work, let’s jump into a little biology. Our cell membranes are comprised of a fatty layer, basically the outer shell that gives it structure. This fatty layer is like the cell’s revolving door, allowing for the passage of nutrients and wastes into and out of the cell. It turns out we can make these same fatty layers a.k.a. liposomes, and use them to wrap around nutrients we want to deliver to the cell.
These liposomes are so similar to the natural cell membrane that they are fuse right into the human membrane while the nutrients are delivered directly into the cell.
Liposomal supplements offer a nutritional delivery system with increased bioavailability and rapid uptake.
Not All Liposome Are Created Equal
Many liposomal products contain large particles that are absorbed poorly. Good things do come in small packages. Liposomes work best when they are small enough to pass between cells and enter the bloodstream. Quicksilver Scientific improved upon basic liposomal technology by creating smaller nanoemulsified particles that get absorbed in the mouth and put into circulation before they get down into the stomach!
Smaller size liposomes have been shown to offer dramatically higher uptake.
Better Ingredients, Better Liposomes
Ingredients are also a major point of differentiation between Quicksilver Scientific products and any other of the liposomes on the market these days. Quicksilver Scientific went to great lengths to secure pharmaceutical grade ingredients by partnering with a German pharmaceutical company.
Liposomes are said to bring the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral form. They can also be made so small that they get delivered while in the mouth and into circulation before they reach the digestive system. Because of enhanced bioavailability, nutrients in liposomal form may be delivered at lower doses than conventional supplements and offer equal efficacy.
Quicksilver Scientific conducted a 10-person, in-house study comparing Intra-Absorption (bioavailability) of liposomal and non-liposomal CBD hemp extract. The results of the study revealed that the liposomal CBD hemp extract was absorbed into the blood in amounts almost 6 times greater than the non-liposomal formulation tested.
The Quicksilver Scientific Difference
Quicksilver Scientific’s ability to offer the most scientifically advanced supplements clearly differentiates them from their competitors.
