Liposomal delivery is changing the way we consume vitamins and certain substances such as CBD, providing a direct route to the bloodstream for fast, efficient absorption and wellness from the inside out. To understand how nanoliposomes work, let’s explore the world of bioavailability and why absorption matters when it comes to CBD.
Nanoliposomes Are Tiny Soldiers
The best way to visualize nanoliposomes is to imagine a tiny army working at a cellular level. Why do you need a tiny army working at a cellular level? Because this army can better endure the digestive process and flow straight into your bloodstream for fast and efficient results. Nanoliposomes, especially in liquid form, offer the following benefits:
- better absorption, which means higher bioavailability;
- protects nutrients from highly efficient GI tract;
- increased intracellular delivery;
- easier to swallow than tablets; and
- can hold both hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds.
CBD and Liposomal Delivery
Since the 1970s, scientists have explored liposomes as potential drug delivery systems because of their biocompatibility and ability to incorporate both hydrophilic and hydrophobic therapeutic elements. CBD is hydrophobic, which means it is not soluble in water. Because our bodies consist largely of water, this means that most conventional CBD products have low oral bioavailability, or they are not as easily absorbed. Nanotechnology increases the bioavailability of CBD so that it is better absorbed and distributed throughout the body. Many of the metabolites of oral CBD are excreted via the kidneys, but liposomal delivery means withstanding the harsh environment of the GI tract to ensure the benefits of CBD do not exit the system unused.
Nanoliposomes and Other Vitamins
CBD isn’t the only substance to benefit from liposomal delivery. Lipid carriers are enhancing the absorption of a variety of vitamins and substances, including vitamin A, vitamin D3, and vitamin K, and even making their way into some cosmetics.
Why RESET Balance is Different
RESET Balance’s nanoliposomes consist of the tiny spherical particles that encapsulate hemp-derived, pure and THC-free CBD, a proprietary process that takes place in RESET’s Good Manufacturing Practice-compliant lab. Grown in pure air in rural Colorado and then transferred to a lab to extract just the CBD isolate, RESET’s CBD is pure and THC-free, meaning you won’t get high when you take it.
RESET also uses sunflower phospholipids for its delivery instead of the more commonly used soy, because sunflowers contain more fatty acids and are a better option for those with soy allergies. Soy may also have to endure a pretty tough extraction process, compromising its phospholipid content, while RESET’s process ensures a product free of heavy metals, toxins and other bioaccumulators. Compared to other CBD products on the market, which have an absorption of about 20 percent, RESET’s nano-liposomes facilitate optimal absorption, which can be up to 80% more than traditional consumption – without any cheap flavoring or bad aftertaste.
CBD is currently only FDA-approved for the treatment of certain epilepsy disorders. You should always speak to a doctor before adding a new supplement to your routine.
