LivOn Labs Supplements
LivOn Labs is the first dietary supplement company to use Liposomal Encapsulation Technology, introducing the first Liposomal Vitamin C supplement in 2004.
Since then, LivOn Labs has been setting the standard for high-quality liposomal supplements by utilizing true liposomal encapsulation processes while adhering to stringent manufacturing, safety, and quality protocols.
Each supplement spends at least two years in research and development to ensure safety and efficacy prior to making it available to the public. We do not “fast-track” products just because of market demand.
Every batch is tested at critical points throughout production and packaging for ingredient content, microbiological agents, heavy metals, and other potential contaminants.
Products are only released after a thorough Quality review.
All our liposomal supplements have at least an equal ratio of phospholipids to key nutrients, which ensures sufficient material to encapsulate the nutrient.
To produce real liposomes, the phospholipids must be introduced to a liquid-based environment (water or another liquid must be included on the ingredient label) through a true Liposomal Encapsulation process such as our patented system.
Liposomes are extremely sensitive to oxygen and heat. Repeated exposure to air, such as opening and closing a multi-use bottle, degrades the supplement and compromises its effectiveness. High-quality liposomal supplements like ours come in single-dose packages.
Maximum absorption, minimum ingredients
LivOn Labs only uses ingredients absolutely necessary to make a safe and effective product.
Every single ingredient helps maximize absorption of the encapsulated nutrient, not enhance taste.
What are liposomes?
Liposomes are double-layered bubbles that protect and deliver nutrients to cells throughout the body. Liposome-encapsulated supplements offer maximized absorption with every dose by outsmarting your body’s nutrient absorption barriers.
What are liposomes made of?
Liposomes are made of essential phospholipids, the same material that makes up your cells. The phosphate head of phospholipids is hydrophilic; it loves water. The fatty-acid tails (lipids) are hydrophobic; they hate water.
When phospholipids are in a water-based solution, the hydrophobic tails distance themselves from the liquid just like oil separates from vinegar. As the tails turn inward and the heads turn toward the liquid, they form a double-layered membrane, which is nearly identical to the double-layer structure of the membranes that surround each of your cells.
What do liposomes do?
Because of their composition, liposomes can pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream for distribution to the cells. From there, they can assimilate into the cells and through the cell membrane to release the nutrients.
Absorption from the digestive system varies by nutrient. Vitamin C, for example, is absorbed almost exclusively in the small intestine and requires sodium-dependent vitamin C co-transporter (SVCTs) proteins. Without these proteins, Vitamin C isn’t absorbed.
Liposomal nutrients achieve maximum absorption in the bloodstream and cells by bypassing absorption barriers without relying on transport systems.
How do liposomes work?
Research has not yet provided conclusive evidence as to how the nutrients in a liposome are released. One theory suggests that the liver processes the phospholipids, which releases the nutrient. Another theory proposes that cells all over the body, hungry for phospholipids to repair membranes and structures, steal these materials from the liposome, which allows their contents to leak out.
Regardless of which process occurs (possibly both), researchers have confirmed the therapeutic value and increased delivery of liposome-encapsulated nutrients countless times. At present, liposomes are one of the most effective ways to deliver nutrients.

Your body can only absorb as much oral Vitamin C as your limited number of nutrient transporters can carry ‚Äî from the digestive system to the bloodstream, and then from the bloodstream to the cells.
The amount of non-liposomal Vitamin C absorbed in the blood decreases dramatically as the dose size increases. Of a 20 mg dose, 19 mg (98%) can be absorbed. Of a 12,000 mg dose, only 16% (1,920 mg) is absorbed, with all that excess causing some major gastric distress when it leaves the body.
Vitamin C is water-soluble, so your body can 't store any excess when it gets left behind in either the blood or the digestive system. That 's why so much of the vitamin content from pills, powders, and even foods is passed as waste. And where it gets abandoned dictates the way your body passes it.
Using patented technology, we wrap the Vitamin C in double-layered phospholipid spheres (liposomes) that protect the vitamin through the digestive system and transport it into the bloodstream for absorption in the cells. So, you get all the benefits of high-dose Vitamin C without the gastric distress.
