What is a Liposomal Supplement?
A new technology, Liposomal supplements are the most potent dietary supplements that you can take orally. Lipo Naturals boosts supplement levels in your body far higher than previously thought possible without an IV. Regular supplement pills, liquids, and powders have an upper limit of bioavailability because of the amount that can pass through the digestive system.
Lipo Naturals encapsulates pharmaceutical-grade dietary supplements in a tiny lipid bubble - called a 'liposome.' This liposome becomes a vehicle for its contents that are easily digested, by-passing the previous oral supplementation limits of regular vitamins. With supplements encapsulated in this way, they're easy on the stomach, easily absorbed, and far more potent than any other high dose supplements. Our customers are finding the benefits of our liposomal supplements pretty amazing!
Lipo Naturals' Quality Tested Liposomal Formula vs Others

Lipo Naturals Liposomal Supplement Imaging
Not all "Liposomal" supplements are what they claim to be. Manufacturing liposomes is fairly difficult. This is a microscopic image of Lipo Naturals. Our liposomes, too small to image with visible light, are instead imaged with extreme ultraviolet. These liposomes are 1/500 the width of a hair. There's a few larger ones (we're not perfect, we try), but in general, those tiny dots are what you're looking for, and part of our quality checks.
Most all that we test from other brands contain no liposomes at all even though "Liposomal" is printed in large type on their labels.
With Lipo Naturals, you are getting the real product. You'll get noticeable results with energy & immunity support, skin improvements, wrinkle reduction, and other benefits of high liposomal bioavailability with Lipo Naturals that you wouldn't find with other supplements.†
Leading Capsule Liposomal C... That Isn't
This image is from one of the most popular brands of "Liposomal C" in capsule form. You certainly get the convenience of a capsule but you aren't getting any liposomes. This image shows regular powdered vitamin C mixed with lecithin and put in a capsule. The cost is much higher than regular vitamin C that you can get at the corner store, but it isn't much different. It does not have the noticeable benefits of a true liposomal formula.†
Other Leading Liquid Liposomal Brand
This brand does actually make a liposomal supplement, but not all liposomes are created equal. Here the liposomes are extremely large and sparse/malformed compared to a properly designed and manufactured liposomal formula. This is only slightly better than the powdered vitamin C from the capsule brand, as the liposomes are not numerous or small enough to be absorbed and bioavailable.†
Leading Spray Pump "Liposomal C" Brand
This image is from the leading brand of spray pump liposomal C. They make the claim that "clear" liquid is better. They state that "any formula that's not clear is not proper." We guess, they meant us. Our formula is cloudy, as it should be. What is clear, is that there are no liposomes detected in this brand's liposomal supplement. The extreme ultraviolet (EUV) imaging used here is from the same systems we use during our manufacturing. These systems can resolve very tiny particles. Here, there's nothing to be found. This is just plain liquid vitamin C sold at a high cost in an admittedly fancy pump.
Lipo Naturals is proud to make what we think are the purest and most effective liposomal supplements available. It's not easy, but it's worth it to do it right. We're thankful that our customers agree.†
Smaller is Not Always Better
Some competitors would have you believe using the smallest liposome will give you the highest potency. This is incorrect. Having the right-sized liposomes matched to the delivery method is what's needed. Since the liposome lipid envelope is the same thickness regardless of liposome size, the supplement-to-lipid ratio is optimized in the largest liposome possible that can be effectively absorbed.
Lipo Naturals formulates liposome sizes optimized for delivery in the stomach, carrying the maximum supplement amount that can be absorbed. This results in higher bioavailability per dose. Spray pump bottles intended for absorbing through the mouth mucosa with undersized liposomes and using sodium buffered vitamin C cannot effectively deliver a similar supplement bioavailability per dose.†
Low Sodium Compared to Others
Many brands of vitamin C and Liposomal C use sodium buffered vitamin C - called ‘Sodium Ascorbate.’ Although there are sometimes reasons you may want to use this man-made buffered form of vitamin C (such as in IVs), the reality is that if you take a lot of buffered vitamin C, that’s a lot of sodium as well.
Your body isn’t quite sure about sodium ascorbate either. It’s far less potent than unbuffered pure vitamin C, called L-Ascorbic Acid. Mammals that produce vitamin C in their livers, which is most all except us humans, produce pure L-Ascorbic Acid, not sodium ascorbate. Measured blood levels over time show the difference: Pure vitamin C indicates much higher bioavailability per mg when compared to sodium ascorbate. Lipo Naturals designed our formula to use pure vitamin C - maximizing the effect of our dosage even compared to IVs - and keeping sodium out of the equation.†
