At Rho Nutrition, we're committed to advancing the frontiers of Regenerative Health Optimization, and one of the groundbreaking technologies we rely on is Liposomal Delivery. This method has revolutionized how essential nutrients are absorbed by your body, ensuring that they reach their destination effectively, without being compromised by the digestive system.

The Essence of Liposomal Delivery:

Imagine liposomes as tiny, protective bubbles that encapsulate our supplements. These microscopic protective layers are formed from phospholipids, the building blocks of cell membranes in our bodies. They play a pivotal role in safeguarding vital nutrients, allowing them to journey through the digestive process unscathed.

Decoding the Science:

Liposomes by definition do not have to be a certain size but because the kidneys filter liposomes at or around 1000nm, it is important to understand that smaller the better. Smaller liposomes tend to circulate in the bloodstream for extended periods. These small liposomes are proven to be more efficient in intracellular delivery, with a recent study showing that, as liposome size decreased, cellular uptake increased dramatically.

Rho's Dedication to Quality:

We take great pride in our commitment to the highest standards of quality and transparency. Our rigorous analysis employs Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) to ensure the integrity and size of our liposomes.

But taking a picture of just one liposome and calling it a day isn’t enough. That is why we also complete Dynamic Light Scattering test. It verifies that every teaspoon is filled with essential spherical structure of proven liposomes.


The Benefits of Liposomal Delivery:

The advantages of this delivery method are manifold: Superior Bioavailability: Liposomal delivery outperforms many other oral supplement forms, ensuring a greater proportion of the nutrients reach their intended target.



No need for painful injections or the associated discomfort. This method also reduces the risk of contamination.

Enhanced Protection: Liposomal encapsulation provides a protective shield against the harsh gastrointestinal (GI) tract environment, resulting in increased oral uptake and absorption.

Intracellular Delivery: Liposomes are efficient carriers for both hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds. This versatility allows for more effective absorption of a wide range of nutrients.

Accessible and Cost-Effective: Liposomal delivery is an ideal solution for individuals who have difficulty swallowing tablets, offering the flexibility of adjustable dosing for both children and adults.

Furthermore, this method often allows you to achieve the same effect with lower doses, making it a cost-effective choice for optimizing your health.


The Role of Absorption Studies:

While Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) are crucial in understanding product quality and manufacturing efficiency, the real proof of effectiveness is in absorption studies. These studies provide irrefutable evidence of how our liposomal products perform in your body, validating their effectiveness and your investment in health.


Transparency Matters:

The rise in popularity of liposomal products has led to an influx of brands mixing poor-quality lecithin using traditional supplement blending equipment and claiming their products are liposomal. However, the truth is less than 1% of their blend typically becomes liposomal. These low-quality practices have prompted the demand for transparency in the industry.

Reputable liposomal brands willingly share the results of their absorption studies, further substantiating the effectiveness of their products. At RHO Nutrition, transparency is at the core of our commitment to you. We're proud to provide products that meet the highest standards of quality and efficacy, offering you the peace of mind that you're investing in your health with the very best.
