Liposomal extracts: the future of nutraceutical formulations

liposomal extracts estratti liposomiali vegetali

Human beings have always used the healing power of plants to treat a wide variety of ailments. Plant extracts, especially in the fields of nutraceuticals and cosmetics, can have multiple beneficial properties that vary depending on the product, among them an antioxidant, antimicrobial, or anti-aging effect. However, taking such extracts correctly can be complex: their poor solubility, instability during storage, and low bioavailability make it difficult to reach target organs with sufficient doses.

In spite of this, modern technologies offer an alternative solution: liposomal extracts, that is, all those extracts that take advantage of liposome delivery technologies, which are able to greatly increase the efficacy of the product. 

Precisely considering the strengths of this mode of delivery, at Flarer we have chosen to include liposomal extracts in our portfolio. But what exactly is it all about? Let’s find out more about the features and benefits of this delivery mechanism.

What are liposomal extracts?

The term liposomal extracts refers to all plant extracts using a specific state-of-the-art technique: liposomal delivery.

Normally, during oral intake of supplements or nutraceuticals, they are broken down by the gastric juices present in the stomach. This increases the risk that the substance contained within the capsule will be damaged before it can be fully absorbed by the body and carry out its therapeutic effect. 

Delivery via liposomal extracts offers a solution to this problem, allowing active ingredients to be stored within liposomes and used as transport vehicles. This process then allows the substance to be protected from gastric juices and achieve complete absorption.

What are liposomes and what are their benefits?

Liposomes are vesicles composed of cholesterol and phospholipids that form a spherical shell capable of crossing the cell membrane. They thus allow absorption into the body without deteriorating the substance inside them. Liposomal delivery can be used for various substances, including vitamins, antioxidants, and herbal extracts.

Thus, it is an ideal delivery process for taking supplements orally, allowing for maximum effectiveness. Therefore, this technology is particularly useful in the field of nutraceuticals.

But what is nutraceuticals and what are the benefits of using liposomal extracts in the industry? Nutraceuticals are generally substances derived from plants, foods and microbial sources. In this scientific field, the use of administration through liposomes is an important added value because it gives the product greater bioavailability and superior absorption. In addition, the study of liposomal delivery relies on an extensive scientific literature that continues to be enriched by constant research to unveil new possibilities and applications of this technology.
