Frequently Asked Questions
A liposome is a sphere shaped vesicle of phospholipid molecules that encapsulate a water droplet to carry substances, such as nutraceuticals, into the tissues.
The phospholipids are in a lipid bilayer, or a double layer of lipid molecules with nonpolar tails facing inward, that resembles the body’s own cell membranes.
The liposome acts as a vehicle for delivering nutrients and lipid nanoparticles into the bloodstream for higher systemic absorption.
Absorption of our products begins as soon as they hit your mouth, allowing for rapid and complete absorption of the liposomal formulas into the bloodstream before being altered by the harsh processes of the digestive system.
With systemic absorption starting in the mouth, greater cellular and tissue uptake is achieved, improving distribution of compounds into the tissues and cells.
For our liposomes, we utilize the same technology and processes for tight particle size controls used by many pharmaceutical companies to ensure consistency of this higher bioavailability.
Our softgel delivery technology utilizes a groundbreaking self-emulsifying delivery system (SEDS) that allows ingredients to enter the blood at an unprecedented rate. Pharmacokinetic studies indicate that the softgel quickly dissolves in the stomach, creating emulsified nanoparticles that easily diffuse through intestinal cell membranes into the bloodstream in as little as 20 minutes, with peak blood concentration occurring within 90 minutes.
While our products are not certified organic, we source whenever possible from farmers or vendors that adhere to organic growing methods.
The following is the list of allergens we test for:
Almond Protein Allergen, Buckwheat Protein Allergen, Brazil Nut Protein, Cashew Protein, Celery Specific DNA Test, Coconut Protein, Crustacean Protein Allergen, Egg Protein Allergen, Fish Specific DNA Test, Gluten Allergen, Hazelnut Protein Allergen, Lupin Residue, Macadamia Protein, Milk Total Protein. Mustard Protein Allergen, Peanut Protein Allergen, Pine Nut Protein, Pistachio Protein, Sesame Seed Protein Allergen. Soy Protein Allergen. Walnut/Pecan Protein.
Products with the symbol “Tested Allergen Free” have been analyzed for the protein content in these allergens.
We utilize alcohol in the form of ethanol. Ethanol is essential in liposomal stability and is present in all of our products in quantities at an amount less than 25%. The ethanol is fermented, then distilled and tested allergen free. The ethanol used in our products is non-GMO and derived from cane sugar
We do not utilize corn for producing our ethanol; all of our ethanol is derived exclusively from cane sugar.
Shelf life for our products ranges from 12 to 24 months from the date of manufacture. Most of our products list the expiration date on the label, however those that are not yet updated will list the manufacture date. Please contact our Customer Experience team for more information on a specific product.
Sometimes the color of a product can change based on from where the ingredients are sourced and depending on the season in which specific plants were grown. However, the quality and integrity of all our products remains the same.
Dosage will vary for each product and for every individual. All general dosing information is listed on the bottles’ label or can be found on each product page on the website. Please contact your healthcare practitioner if you have individual or in-depth dosing questions. We cannot provide medical advice.
We recommend taking no more than 1 tsp of liquid at a time to allow for more complete absorption in the mouth. Wait 2-3 minutes between each 1 tsp dose.
Ultra Binder contains clay and charcoal as active ingredients, which are known to contain naturally occurring chemicals that can be dangerous in high amounts. Because of Prop 65, we are required by law to make our customers aware of the presence of potentially harmful elements in this product. While we use the purest ingredients available, lead is everywhere in the environment and is found in the soil where plants are grown, therefore it is impossible to avoid in many plant-based ingredients. See Prop 65 Document for more info.
These protocols were designed through years of working with multiple practitioners and patients and gauging their response to both the initial and follow-up mercury testing, plus the patients’ reported response to the detox.
Unfortunately, as manufacturers of the products we do not have the medical qualifications to answer that question. Please consult with a practitioner about this concern before consuming our products. To locate practitioners that purchase our products and will have more familiarity, click here or contact our Customer Experience team and they may be able to help you find a practitioner in your area.
Ethanol and glycerin are integral aspects of nanoparticle chemistry. There are three main reasons we use these ingredients in our products:
1) Ethanol is used for softening the nanoparticle membrane when applying shear homogenization to our nano formulations. This is what gives our products the smallest particle size possible to increase their absorption bioavailability of ingredients.
2) Ethanol, in combination with glycerin, is used in the extraction and delivery of the nutrients. This is called hydroethanolic and has been used for centuries in herbalism to make tinctures and other herbal extracts.
3) Ethanol and glycerin are great preservatives and stabilizers. We have chosen these multi-faceted ingredients over less optimal preservatives that are often used in non-ethanol products such as potassium sorbate, sodium sorbate, sorbic acid, and parabens to name a few.
