Sunflower lecithin, a natural extract derived from sunflower seeds, is the unexpected ingredient that elevates your health game! It plays a crucial role in both the formation and stability of liposomes ensuring that your body gets all of the nutrients it needs.

Here's how it enhances our liposomal supplements:

  • Improved Bioavailability: Sunflower lecithin enhances bioavailability by protecting the active ingredients as they pass through the harsh stomach environment and facilitating their absorption into the bloodstream. This protective effect ensures that a higher amount of the active ingredient reaches its intended target within the body, improving overall efficacy.
  • Stability & Effective Encapsulation:Research shows that sunflower lecithin improves the stability and loading capacity of compounds in liposomes. 
  • Bonus Health Benefits: This natural ingredient takes your health to the next level by supporting your liver with toxin removal, your heart by lowering blood pressure, and enhances your digestion, skin, bone and joint health!
  • Easy Formulation: Sunflower lecithin allows for easy formulation into various formats like capsules, tablets, gummies, etc., due to its free-flowing water-soluble powder form. It offers a clean alternative without excipients or additives.

When it comes to boosting our supplements naturally, sunflower lecithin gets the job done!
