LipoPhos Forte x 120ml
- Vegetarian product
LipoPhos Forte contains Essential Phospholipids (EPL), natural substances that form the outer membranes of living cells. These naturally occurring lipids include phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylethanolamine, as well as linoleic and linolenic fatty acids. EPL play a role in cellular energy production, intracellular communication, and in maintaining cell membrane fluidity and integrity.
Clinical studies of EPL conducted in Europe show that EPL may play an important role in supporting LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol and serum triglycerides within normal levels, and in supporting healthy HDL cholesterol within normal levels. Studies of EPL suggest it has potential to support the cardiovascular function, increase peripheral brain circulation, and in some cases increase exercise tolerance.
The EPL is made through a proprietary and costly procedure from natural sunflower lecithin, and it is not the same as typical phospholipids available in pill form. The special process used to make EPL allows it to spontaneously form microscopic cellular structures whose walls are very similar in construction to the actual cell membranes found in the human body. These are the components that form the outer membrane of every living cell.
Phospholipids are vital to basic biological processes. They play roles in cellular energy production, cellular DNA information flow to RNA and to other proteins, intracellular communication (signal transduction), and in maintaining cell membrane integrity.
How does EPL differ from regular phospholipids?
In order to be absorbed into the lining of the small intestine, regular phospholipids need to be digested by the pancreatic enzyme phospholipase. The resulting compound (lysolecithin) then needs to be re-acidified back to phosphatides before it can use the lymphatic system to finally arrive in the bloodstream. By contrast, EPL has a liposomal structure. Liposomes are tiny cell-like structures, in the nanometer size range, that can get through the acidic stomach and then easily absorb from the intestinal tract. The oral delivery system of EPL offers both protection and delivery of their valuable nutrients, approaching the intravenous level of assimilation.
