LipoCeutical” is a combination of two words: "liposomes" and "nutriceutical" (nutrient supplement). Scroll down for more information about our liposome technology. LipoCeutical Glutathione is a liquid that is meant to be taken orally and is sold as a dietary supplement. It is made by a patent pending process. The best time to take it is in the morning on an empty stomach. It can be taken “straight” or mixed in water or juice. Drink immediately. The recommended beginning adult dose is one teaspoon per day, but some extremely sensitive people (or those on many pharmaceuticals) should go "low and slow". Start with 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon, and work up to one teaspoon. Because glutathione contains sulfur, this product has a sulfur aroma and taste. It has not gone bad! If you shake it vigorously, more of the sulfur aroma will be released. Liposomes tend to cluster together, so the bottle should be shook when you first get it, and gently rocked back and forth after that. Keep LipoCeutical Glutathione at a comfortable room temperature or in the refrigerator. Liposomes are small spheres (100-500 nanometer size), or liquid bubbles, made from Essential Phospholipids (EPL). EPL are natural components of human and animal cell membranes. A continuous supply of EPL, or its constituents, is essential for cell maintenance. In its simplest form, the outer portion of the liposome is fat soluble and the inner portion is water soluble. This makes liposomes ideal for carrying water soluble materials into the body. In this product the liposome is wrapped around glutathione. The following study revealed that liposomes create an opportunity to carry materials into the body that would otherwise not be orally absorbed into the system. Studies in humans show that the absorption of phospholipids is higher than 90%. The study demonstrates that 40 - 80% of EPL is incorporated into the HDL. HDL (high density lipoprotein) is the so called "good cholesterol" that helps protect against heart attack. A portion of the EPL is absorbed un-metabolized and accounts for the relative long lifetime (48 hours) of liposomes in humans. (Zierenberg, O., S.M. Grundy, J. Lipid Research 23 (1982) 1136-1142)
