LivOn Labs offers absorbable supplements for those with celiac
If you didn’t already know this about celiac disease, it can make absorption of nutrients, particularly from supplements, difficult. This is especially true if you’ve only recently been diagnosed and are in the process of healing your intestinal lining or if your celiac disease isn’t well managed. Luckily, there’s a brand called LivOn Labs that makes what are known as lypo-spheric supplements. These supplements bypass the body’s usual route of digesting supplements and instead get absorbed and delivered where they need to go much easier. Their vitamin C is a favorite amongst the staff here, and I’m a big fan of their Lypo-Spheric B Complex Plus to help with my energy levels.
Lypo-what? I know, it’s a bit complex (get it? B Complex?). Lypo-Spheric supplements work differently from regular supplements. Here’s a little bit about how it works: Liposomes are double-layered bubbles that protect and deliver nutrients to cells throughout the body while bypassing the body’s usual delivery systems (which can be damaged from diseases like celiac). Liposomes can pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream for distribution to the cells. From there, they release nutrients. If you’ve had difficulty absorbing nutrients or you feel like your supplements simply are not working for you, this technology might be the answer.
People with celiac tend to be deficient in nutrients like B vitamins, zinc, and magnesium. This is because of the degradation of the villi in the small intestine and can also be caused by a lack of food in the diet that is usually fortified with those nutrients. I’ve been deficient in B vitamins and have often supplemented them. LivOn Labs’ Lypo-Spheric B Complex Plus is great because I know it’s being absorbed by my body and I notice a difference in how I feel. It contains a blend of B vitamins, including B2, B6, and B12, as well as folate, zinc, and more. What it doesn’t contain is gluten, GMO ingredients, sugar, dairy, fillers, or artificial flavors.
How you take these supplements is unique, and might take a little adjusting to, but it’s simple once you get the hang of it. Simply squeeze the packet into 1-3 ounces of a cold beverage (not hot, as this can damage the liposomes). Swallow it in one gulp, like a shot. Wait at least 15 minutes before eating.
Energy, vitality, and the assurance that your body has indeed absorbed the nutrients it needs? Yep, you get all that with this supplement!
As always, consult a medical professional before beginning any new protocol.
