Nano-enhanced Genuine Liposomes:
Liposomal supplements use a cutting-edge delivery method that allows a greater number of the nutrients in a product to be absorbed by the body.
Your body only absorbs and uses a certain amount of nutrients from the food and supplements that we consume. The rest is excreted.
The digestive system is designed to release acids and ssubstances to break down and ingest food, while destoying bacteria and viruses.
However, the downside to this effective system is that supplements like vitamin tablets are broken down so quickly that the full quantity of the supplement doesn’t get to the intended organ and cells. So, just because a vitamin supplement claims to have 500mg, doesn’t mean that your body will absorb all 500mg. This is why Now Alchemy supplements are liposomal.
A good example of this would be NAD+. This molecule is a very important for repairing DNA. But it's levels decline with age which reduces the protection that our bodies need. By taking NAD+ in supplement form, we can stay youthful and healthy. But NAD+ supplements are not absorptive whatsoever if it is not in lipsomal form.
Our breakthrough delivery system using truly organic and genuine liposomes allows the body to absorb 20 to 100 times more than conventional supplements, making it more effective in replenishing NAD+ levels.
What is a liposome?
Liposomes are the heart of nanoenhanced liposomal delivery (NLD). What is NLD? nanoenhanced liposomal delivery is a technology consisting of microscopic healthy fat particles made up of phospholipids along with water-soluble nanoenhanced vitamins, minerals and other active ingredients.
Phospholipids mirror the membranes around every cell within our body. It’s the cell membranes that either allow or inhibit the absorption of a nutrient or compound.
Liposomes are microscopic fat particles that form a membrane made of phospholipid molecules. The liposomes’ structure is hollow and enclosed by a phospholipid double layer that makes them effective carriers of nutrients and supplements directly to the bloodstream and cells.
The phospholipid molecule has a hydrophilic head (attracted to water) and a hydrophobic tail (repelled from water).
This unique structure allows the molecule to transform into a hollow structure when immersed into an aqueous solution. Therefore, if vitamins and nutrients are bonded to the phospholipids, protecting, suspending and sealing the nutrient inside the liposome until it reaches your cells for transportation.
We call this liposomal delivery because the liposome protects the nutrients from degradation by the digestive juices in the gut and the molecule ends up in the intestines, where they enter the bloodstream to be delivered to your cells.
Liposomal supplements have a greater bioavailability and absorption rate because the liposome has a similar structure to the cell membrane, making the nutrients easier to absorbe and be released into the cell.
What does nano-enhanced mean?
Simply put, nano means small. Nano is a size identification and nano-enhancing is a way of decreasing the size of a particle to ensure that it is small enough to enter and travel through your blood stream, allowing it to remain inside of a liposome to be delivered into your cells. Nano-enhancing is another technology that sets Now Alchemy apart from other lipsomal supplements.
Like our Nano-enhanced hemp oil for example. This is a full plant extracted CBD oil that goes through another cutting-edge step designed to help it be carried faster and more efficiently throughout your body, even crossing the blood brain barrier where you can experienced the full benefits of the CBD, CBG, and other canabinouids present in the hemp plant.
First, the oil is pulled from hemp using supercritical CO2 extraction (the same process that we use for our oils) to yield a clean and pure CBD concentrate. For most CBD hemp oil products, this is where the science ends and the oils are diluted into a carrier oil, tested and packaged for human consumption. However, very little of it is absorbed, which is why many people have come to beleive that CBD does not work or assiciate it with "snake oils". But with nano-enhanced hemp oils, there is one more step that changes how the oil is delivered into the your bloodstream allowing it to take full effect.
Nano-enhanced hemp oil is when the hemp compounds themselves are enhanced into smaller, nanosized particles, and then can be surrounded and coated with a protective liposomal bilayer.
Without this nano-enhancing process, the oil soluble CBD particles are too large to enter into your cells. This is why Now Alchemy utilizes a chemical free, nano-enhancing process to ensure maximum absorption and delivery speeds.
