Both of our liposomal brands are designed to provide the highest-quality nutrient bioavailability. While both are equally as beneficial, we’ll let you decide which one is best for you.
Why buy SANUSq liposomal products?
We believe the best liposomes for nutrient bioavailability are around 100-400 nm (nanometers) in size, and approximately 95% of the liposomes in our products are within this range. This size is ideal as it means that nutrients can be directly absorbed. Plus, there is ample volume to transport generous amounts of nutrients. If the liposome is too small? Not enough nutrients are carried to be effective. If it is too large? The nutrients cannot be easily absorbed into the cells.
Verifying liposomes requires special equipment, as you cannot see a liposome this small under an optical microscope. To make sure our liposomes are the perfect size, we first determine the size using Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) equipment. Next, we use Electron Microscope Imaging (EMI) to determine if the particles are truly liposomes or simply solid particles. The liposome should be a translucent sphere filled with liquid, like tiny bubbles. If they are not transparent, it means they are solid, and are not liposomes after all.
Liposomes are not all perfectly spherical as they are so tightly packed they press against each other. This creates irregular shapes, like a cluster of bubbles as you wash the dishes. With our equipment, we can see how densely the liposomes are packed together in the carrier liquid. The images you see here were diluted up to 10,000 times just to allow the individual liposomes to be seen.
At first glance, these images are not very impressive in all their black-and-white simplicity. However, after time, you begin to see the amazing quality of these tiny liposomes, and they become incredible to witness. Trust us!
Each liposome has a thin wall similar to a bubble or balloon, with an empty space inside to accommodate the nutrients. This ultra-thin wall is made of PC—PhosphatidylCholine and other phospholipids. Interestingly, the phospholipids offer nutritional value in their own right. Imagine each liposome as a very valuable gift (the nutrients inside) wrapped in equally as valuable wrapping (the nutritious phospholipids).
Consider these two photos, each taken at 500nm (0.5nm) to clearly show the various sizes of the liposomes and how tightly they are packed. The third image is taken at 200 nm (0.2um) to show the thickness of the PC liposome wall.
Take a closer look to see that there are smaller liposomes within larger liposomes. This is a fantastic feature because it means the nutrients can be slowly released. First, the larger liposomes open and release the nutrients inside, then the smaller liposomes follow suit later. This ensures a steady flow of nutrients over time, helping the cells in the body to utilize the nutrients effectively. A metaphor we like to use is a heavy downpour versus a steady, gentle drizzle. The heavy downpour comes and goes quickly, not allowing the plants to fully absorb the water. The steady drizzle, however, gives the plants ample time to absorb the water. Multi-layered liposomes are like gentle rain, supplying a steady flow of nutrients for your cells to absorb.
The time-release nature of liposomes is not the only characteristic that sets them apart from other nutrient delivery methods such as emulsions. Liposomes protect the nutrients within a wall that keeps the nutrients safe from destructive stomach acids. The wall also protects the stomach from potentially irritating molecules. Unlike a simple emulsion, liposomes can carry great amounts of nutrients, within a PC wall that offers additional nutritional benefits.
So, how do we make liposomes, exactly? We can tell you that our method doesn’t use heat, solvents, alcohol, chemicals, or high pressure as these can all destroy the fragile nutrients. After years of development, we figured out how to make liposomes with natural ingredients and in natural conditions. Our process is constantly under development in the quest for perfection alongside our manufacturers who also strive to continuously perfect their equipment. The result? The most stable, healthy, and effective liposomes on the market.
All SANUSq brand liposomal products are manufactured and packaged in the USA. We use HDPE bottles with sealed flip-top lids, or glass bottles and eye-droppers to ensure precision when dispensing. SANUSq uses NON-GMO Sunflower oil, is non-soy and is gluten free. Plus, you can find all ingredients for all products on the individual product pages.
Why buy Bonne Santé Liposome products?
Bonne Santé Liposome (BSL) products stand out from the rest because of our production process and packaging (we use 100% leak-proof PET bottles). We keep ethanol and non-GMO soy lecithin levels to a minimum, using them only as stabilizing ingredients. Our products are sugar-free, gluten-free, and vegetarian friendly. For a full ingredients list, see the individual product pages.
BSL liposomes are created using European technology as opposed to the USA-based processes used to create SANUSq products. This results in different textures and flavors, but with equally high-quality and effective nutrient delivery.
