Liposomes are basically a nutrient wrapped in a layer of fat (phosphatidylcholine, an important beneficial fat molecule). This is the same way that nutrition is delivered to babies through breast milk. Little fat bubbles fulled with nutrients. Liposomes are sometimes used with drugs to deliver drugs to specific targets in the body. Liposomes are also used to deliver nutrients into the body. Liposomes are better at carrying nutrients into the body and also delivering that nutrient into the cell than powders which make up most tablets and capsules. The phosphatidylcholine part of the liposome is then added as a healthy fat to cell membranes. These are important distinctions that determine how well your supplements are absorbed and utilized.
