The Science Behind Fulvisomes

The distinguishing factor.

The liposomes contained in Oshun Health’s products are smaller and more stable than anything that’s ever been achieved before. This technology truly places our products in a league of their own.

What is a Liposome and its benefit in supplements?

A liposome is a microscopically small, spherical-shaped particle that has a lipid (fatty) bilayer surrounding an aqueous pocket. A liposome can encapsulate and deliver various molecules, including nutrients. Liposomes can enhance the absorption and bioavailability of nutrients, making them more effective in promoting optimal health.

What are the benefits of using liposomes?

One of the primary benefits of using liposomes in supplements is that they can protect the encapsulated nutrients from degradation in the digestive system. Nutrients such as vitamins and minerals can be broken down by enzymes and stomach acid, reducing their bioavailability and effectiveness. However, when these nutrients are encapsulated in liposomes, they are protected from degradation and are able to reach the small intestines intact. Once there, they can be absorbed into the bloodstream.

Furthermore, lipsomes can make certain nutrients that are very hard for the body to absorb (e.g. curcumin) much more absorbable. Liposomes can also enhance the absorption of nutrients by improving their solubility in water. Many nutrients, such as vitamins A, D, E, and K, are fat-soluble, meaning they require the presence of fat to be absorbed. Liposomes, being composed of a lipid (fatty) bilayer, can facilitate the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients, improving their bioavailability.

Lastly, liposomes can improve the taste and texture of supplements. Many nutrients and supplements have a bitter or unpleasant taste, which can be masked by encapsulating them in liposomes. This can make the supplements more palatable and enjoyable to consume.

How does liposomal absorption work?

If nutrients are encapsulated by liposomes, they are shielded from the body’s aqueous environment by the lipid bilayer. Over time the bilayer deteriorates and the liposomes release their inner contents into the cells of the body.

Why are our Liposomes so cutting edge?

The trademarked liposomal technology (called fulvisomes) Oshun Health uses is unique because it incorporates fulvic acid, the natural transport system used by all living organisms to absorb nutrients, into the liposome.

The addition of fulvic makes our liposomes even more absorbable than other liposomal products on the market. Fulvisomes are also smaller and more stable than what’s generally available in the market.

This truly places our absorption technology in a league of its own.
