The fact is, many dietary supplements suffer from low bioavailability.  

What does this mean? It means that, despite the purported benefits of ingredients found in your daily supplements, many of those compounds get flushed through your system without proper absorption. This can be due to limitations of the compound itself, or losing potential nutrients through the digestion process. ​
Our passion and commitment to help people reclaim and achieve their brightest state of being led our founder and CEO, Dr. Chris Shade to pioneer the use of nanoparticle technology in the nutraceutical industry. Understanding that bioavailability of ingredients is the number one prerequisite for advanced supplementation, Quicksilver Scientific was the first supplement company to successfully unlock the power of nanoparticle delivery at a pharmaceutical level.

We have solved the bioavailability problem with Quicksilver Delivery Systems®.

Creating a delivery system that elegantly works with our natural biology is a true ‘art meets science’ story. The art lies in the chemistry, structure, and size of the particles manufactured. There is intentionality and a detailed iteration process with each and every product we make. ​

The science lies in the mastered chemistry of the lipid nanoparticle created using our proprietary Quicksilver Delivery Systems® technology. When formulating our nanoparticles, we use a specific lipid-base chemistry, and source the highest grade ingredients like injectible grade phosphatidylcholine. And we continue to innovate, upleveling our delivery technology supplementation formats to include liposomes, nanoemulsions, nanoformulations, self-emulsifying delivery systems (SEDS), and liposomal gummies.

What is a liposome?

A liposome is a lipid (fat) vesicle used to house and protect delicate compounds, botanicals and nutraceuticals. The ideal composition of a quality liposome utilizes high-grade phosphatidylcholine (PC), generally derived from either sunflower or soy lecithin. PC is the main structural support of the body’s cell membranes, which makes for a more flexible nanoparticle membrane that is easily recognized by the body to improve delivery via intraoral absorption.

The power of Biosynchronous-Activation®

Traditional supplements are unable to cohesively activate pathways due to the slow and variable metabolism of ingredients. QDS® enhances not only the bioavailability and absorption, but also timely delivery of ingredients - we call this Biosynchronous-Activation®. This delivery + timing creates a cohesive activation of pathways for consistent and measurable results. Whether you’re using one of Quicksilver's products, you can depend on the synchronized absorption of ingredients for consistent, dependable results.

Pharmacy-On-A-Chip: Microfluid Synthesis Of Pegylated & Folate Receptor-Targeted Liposomes For Drug Delivery

Nanoparticle delivery has been well-tested and proven. In this independent study from the National Institute of Standards and Technology we see that cellular uptake markedly increases as liposome size decreases. There is a rapid and dramatic almost 9-fold increase in absorption going from 236nm to just 97nm. At the smallest size, 64 nm, we can see that uptake is about 34 times higher, compared to the larger particle size. You can see that the uptake increases significantly once the size falls below 100 nanometers.

We've set a higher standard for liposomal delivery...

Quicksilver's liposomal delivery technology supports the absorption of ingredients directly to cells, bypassing the bioavailability constraints of traditional supplement delivery methods. This can only be achieved through stable chemistry methods and crafting liposomes that are small enough to easily diffuse through cell membranes.

and the difference is clear.

We use high shear homogenization and employ iterative quality, potency, and particle size testing processes using light scattering technology with each and every batch to ensure the smallest particle size.


Top-of-the-line, certified, onsite manufacturing. No compromises.

Manufacturing our own products is core to the integrity and success of our business. We are proud to be:

SGS certified cGMP manufacturer ​
As a cGMP-certified facility, we ensure that our products are designed, monitored, and controlled at every stage of the manufacturing process according to FDA requirements.  ​​

Rigorous in-house and third-party testing 
​All batches we produce undergo rigorous in-house and third-party testing to ensure that the safety, quality, and potency of our products uphold our company standards.  ​

We never stop innovating.

Our most recent scientific breakthrough was to successfully incorporate liposomes into a gummy matrix, where the nano droplets release from the gummy upon chewing, yielding the same high bioavailability as our liquids.
