Iron is an essential mineral that helps with the transportation of oxygen throughout the body. Red blood cells get their color for the substance called hemoglobin, and iron is an important component of that substance. Therefore, iron is important for healthy blood cells that carry oxygen from your lungs and supply it to the rest of your body. Because of its function in oxygen transport it also supports normal cognitive functions.
It also important for energy metabolism and can help to lessen fatigue.
The advantages of a liposomal iron
The advantages of liposomal iron are two fold, one being that the iron is much better absorbed in the cells. And another big advantage is that being enclosed in the fatty liposome balls means that the iron doesn’t influence the stomach or intestinal tract. This prevents the common side effects of iron supplementation such as nausea and constipation.
Vitamin C has been added to this formula to improve the iron absorption.Vitamin B 12 has been added as it is also important for the formation of red blood cells. This product has an active vitamin B 12 in it, methylcobalamin.

What are liposomes?
Absorption and bio-absorption of supplements is a problem that manufacturers and researchers in this field struggle with.
Excipients, binders, fillers and fluxes can contribute to poor disintegration of tablets and capsules, which means poor absorption at best. The next problem is ensuring that the active ingredients get into the blood stream and reach the cells.
Liposomes have long been used as an effective method of delivering drugs into the body. Recently, liposomes have been increasingly used for supplements. The active ingredients are enveloped in a bubble of phospholipids, fat molecules which form the bulk of the cell wall. This protects the active ingredients and allows them to better survive the digestive process and enter the intestines. There, the liposome fuses with the cell wall and the active ingredients are released, allowing them to be better absorbed into the cells and not just into the bloodstream.
The phospholipids of the liposome are then used in the body, as they are identical to the phospholipids of the cell membrane.
Liposomes are non-toxic, flexible in use, biocompatible and fully biodegradable.
The latest technology – powdered liposomes
The supplement industry is not standing still, always looking for new ways to improve health, with new ingredients and better methods to deliver the nutrients.
Liposomes have been around for a while for better delivery of pharmaceutical drugs and have since been used for supplements.
Liposome technology is also evolving with better techniques to make liposomes.
We use LipoCellTech™ liposomes which are made with the latest technology for making powdered liposomes.

- Guaranteed high-quality liposomal products
Nature’s Way – The natural way
The method used by LipoCellTech™ mimics nature. We therefore call it ‘Nature’s Way’. The human body produces its own liposomes from food from the digestive tract. By bonding the food with Choline (Vitamin B4), the body turns the nutrients from the food into liposomes. By using purified water during the production process, the body’s own liposome creation process is mimicked. Because of this, the body recognises the liposomal products as body-own material and the absorption of the liposomes is much higher. After releasing the active substance into the cells the liposome fuses with the cell wall. Only natural products are used during the entire patented production process. Even the cleaning of the production machines is done exclusively with organic cleaning agents.
