Frequently Asked Questions

Liposomes

Q  What is the source of the phosphatidylcholine?

 Curcumin/Resveratrol, CoQ10, Multivitamin, Curc/Rala/Ben™: from sunflower.

Other products (Vitamin C, Glutathione, B12.) : originally from soy but through the purification process any soy marker is removed. Non GMO’s  and compliant for those with soy allergies. 

 Do the liposomes work better than an injection?

A  Many IV doctors use our liposomes in conjunction or as an alternative to IV therapy.IV levels are much higher than liposomal but they clear the blood quicker. Liposomes are a great conjunction as they have been known to stay in the blood for over 10 hours (extended duration). 

 What makes liposomes better than non-liposomal formulas?

Liposomes are a solution for nutrients that are poorly bioavailable and expensive. We prove that our product works better than oral vitamin C. 

Q  Will the Liposomal Vitamin C affect my GI tract?

People commonly ingest 4 grams without GI upset.  

 The Glutathione has a strong taste.  What will make it taste better?

Glutathione is a sulphur compound and we’ve done our best to control taste and smell. That being said it’s very strong. We suggest putting in cranberry or pomegranate juice to help cut the taste.

Q  What makes EL liposomes better than other cheaper liposomes I’ve seen on the market?

The main difference is we are the only liposomal company to prove that our product actually works. 

Q Should I take with food or on an empty stomach?

Liposomes don’t get absorbed in the stomach so it doesn’t matter. They theoretically pass through the stomach into the middle GI tract and then absorb into the bloodstream through the intestinal wall.

Q What do the products do?

Promote bioavailable delivery of nutrients.

Q Will the Glutathione and DHA be OK out of refrigeration for shipment?

The products are quite stable and are ok out of refrigeration during transit. I myself keep the bottles open on my desk and use within a month. Extreme temperatures over 120 degrees may affect the product which is why we choose to not ship over the weekend in the heat of summer. 

The keep refrigerated  direction is just so consumers will be conscientious about how they store their product (e.g. do not keep in hot car during the hot summer). You may pour some liquid into a spoon. If the product curdles this is a sign that it’s spoiled.

Q Can these products be used topically?

Most likely but this has not been tested. Liposomal Curcumin/Resveratrol will stain the skin.

 

Ingredients

Q What are the “natural flavors”?

A The flavors are a proprietary blend of orange, pineapple and other undisclosed fruits and berries. We’ve never seen any allergy issues as this is the flavors are natural aromatic extracts not known to contain the constituents people are sensitive to. That being said there are no guarantees. For my friends I suggest they put a little on their inner arm first.  They are also completely natural and contain nothing synthetic, no MSG, and no alcohol.

Q What is the shelf life? Will my old product still work? 

Freshness is commonly maintained 18 months from manufacturing.  Older products should be discarded.  Product open more than 60 days should be discarded.

Q Does it need to be refrigerated?

We suggest refrigeration after opening and use within 45 days of opening. We suggest this so consumers are conscientious about storage.  If stored out of the refrigerator it should be fine. I myself keep the bottles open on my desk and use within a month.

Q Is the glycerine derived from animals?

Vegetable source

Q  What does tested non-gmo vs. non-gmo mean?

Tested non-GMO means the product does not have any detectable GMO’s.  GMO Free may mean IP (Identity Protected) which means the identity from seed has been confirmed non-GMO.

Q  What do you use as a preservative

The most gently preservative available is potassium sorbate and we use under 0.1% (SAY THIS A LOT).  It is much more tolerated than alcohol, polysorbate, or benzoate.
