Leaders in Liposomal Encapsulation Technology
Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) is a cutting-edge delivery system that ensures Altrient products deliver maximised absorption. LET is our proprietary dosing system, a remarkable technology chosen specifically to surround, protect and enhance our nutrient formulas.
Altrient has taken the power of LET out of the laboratory and put it into your hands.
Liposomes have unique properties that can improve the performance of products by increasing ingredient solubility, improving bioavailability and enhancing intracellular uptake.The liposomes themselves are tiny artificially prepared liquid filled bubbles made up of a double layer of non-toxic phospholipids. Phospholipids consist of a hydrophilic (or 'water loving') head and a hydrophobic (or 'water fearing') tail. When phospholipids find themselves in a water-based solution, the hydrophobic tail rapidly moves itself away from the liquid – just as oil separates from vinegar. They spontaneously arrange themselves into two parallel layers and form spherical structures.
The resulting liposome has amphiphilic properties which means it can incorporate and release both water soluble and fat soluble components simultaneously, whilst maintaining a protective barrier around its biologically active ingredients. The bilayer structure of a liposome is nearly identical to the construction of the cell membrane that surrounds each cell in the human body. Over 50 years ago, researchers discovered that these liposomal spheres could be filled with nutrients, and used to protect and deliver therapeutically active compounds into the body – even to specific cell sites.
The beauty of Liposomal Encapsulation Technology lies in the unique composition of phospholipids, which are the primary building blocks of cellular membranes.
The beauty of Liposomal Encapsulation Technology lies in the unique composition of phospholipids, which are the primary building blocks of cellular membranes. These membranes are the ‘containers’ that hold the living matter within each cell. They also give definition, shape and protection to many of the organelles within our cells such as the nucleus and mitochondria.
In addition to functioning as a selective barrier for each cell – phospholipid membranes provide protection for chemicals and pathogens that can derail and destroy the necessary life functions that take place within each cell. While performing this function, phospholipid membranes are subject to constant attack from free radicals, pathogens and toxins.
Without question, LET is the most effective method of delivering nutrients orally. It’s why Altrient products are the best nutritional supplements of their kind in the world. Nothing else comes close!
In order to repair the structural damage caused by a continual barrage of toxic substances and pathogens, your body requires a constant supply of phospholipids. Whilst humans can synthesise some phospholipid compounds others must be sourced from food. Phospholipids that can only be obtained from the diet are called ‘essential phospholipids’.
The liposomes used in Altrient products are made from essential phospholipids that include a high percentage of Phosphatidylcholine (PC). These liposomes not only provide optimum protection and superior transport, they also satisfy the body’s need for PC, omega-6 fatty acids and choline.
