Liposomal refers to a method of delivering nutrients, medications, or other substances using liposomes, which are tiny spherical structures composed of lipid (fat) molecules. Liposomes can encapsulate and protect the substance they carry, allowing for improved absorption, increased bioavailability, and targeted delivery to specific cells or tissues in the body.

The structure of liposomes consists of one or more lipid bilayers, creating a vesicle with an aqueous (water-based) core. This core can encapsulate water-soluble substances, while the lipid layers protect the encapsulated material from degradation in the digestive system and facilitate its transport across cell membranes.

Liposomal delivery systems have gained attention in various fields, including medicine, nutritional supplements, and cosmetics. In medicine, liposomal formulations can enhance the delivery of drugs to specific tissues or cells, potentially reducing side effects and improving therapeutic outcomes. In the context of nutritional supplements, liposomal formulations are used to enhance the absorption of certain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients.

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of liposomal formulations depends on various factors, including the specific substance being encapsulated, the composition of the liposomes, and the targeted delivery site.
