QUICKSILVER LIPOSOMAL FORMULAS – NEW PRODUCTS!

Fred Liers PhD quicksilver liposomal formulasOne of the most significant developments for nutrient uptake and assimilation is the advent of liposomal delivery systems. Once in the range of 300–5,000 nanometers, the latest liposomes are now just 20–100 nanometers (nm)!

The significance of these small liposomes—tiny bilayer lipid structures—is that there is a major increase in the amount of nutrient delivery to cells. That is, small liposomes show significantly greater efficiency at intracellular delivery of encapsulated compounds.

Liposomal delivery systems have evolved rapidly and now offer major advantages over nutritional supplements delivered by standard means—like capsules, tablets, powders, and liquids (e.g., tinctures).

Liposomal delivery systems first utilized multi-lamellar vesicles (MLV) ranging ins size from 300–5,000 nanometers. Later, “large” unilamellar vesicles (LUV) (100–300 nanometers) were developed. Products containing LUVs are more effectively assimilated than MLVs.

As noted, lipsomal technologies have shrunk liposome sizes to 20–100 nanometers (nm), the category size for small unilamellar vesicles (SUV). This means the body can far more easily assimilate nutrients delivered liposomally when the particle sizes are up to 10 times smaller than already effective liposome sizes.

Small liposomes (SUV) have a long circulation half-life and better cellular accumulation. Small lipid particles have the fastest uptake kinetics and can participate in paracellular (between cells) transport. The nutritional liposome industry is rapidly moving toward the use of small liposomes.

Key Point: Small liposomes (SUV) are significantly more efficient at intracellular delivery of encapsulated compounds. In a recent study with carefully sized liposomes, cellular uptake increased nine-fold as liposome size was decreased from 236 nm to 97 nm and was 34 fold higher at 64 nm.

Nutrients that can be delivered liposomally range from vitamin C and glutathione to many types of adaptogenic and medicinal herbs.

Benefits of Liposomal Delivery

  • Rapid update, assimilation, and movement into cells
  • Oral intake bypasses digestive system—nutrients go directly into body
  • High levels of nutrients assimilated
  • Reduced dosages and less “wasted” product
  • Nutrients penetrate smallest compartments in the body
  • Nutrients circulate widely
  • Precise intra-oral delivery
  • Simple manual pump from glass bottle
  • Easy water dispersability when desired
  • Good tasting!

Liposomal delivery systems are the future of nutritional supplements given all the advantages they confer. HPDI recognizes the value of liposomal products, and now offers the best formulas available—from Quicksilver Scientific, Inc.—to our customers.

QUICKSILVER LIPOSOMAL FORMULAS

HPDI offers four liposomal formulas from Quicksilver Scientific, the leader in nanoliposomal delivery systems. Each formula offers unparalleled uptake and assimilation—and good taste!—via inta-oral delivery. These products include:

Quicksilver liposomal formulas

HPDI offers four liposomal formulas from Quicksilver Scientific.

Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid (mean size 50–100nm): Quicksilver Scientific’s Etheric Delivery™ system for Liposomal Vitamin C (with R-Lipoic Acid) is the most absorbable form of professional-grade Vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential to any detoxification program because it feeds the system that eliminates toxins. It is also very effective in removing lead and other heavy metals from our system and fighting off the free radicals that form in the liver during the first phase of detoxification.

R-Lipoic Acid (as sodium R-Lipoate) has an exceptionally well-documented ability to upregulate the glutathione system via the Nrf2 nuclear transcription pathway. This combination of liposomal vitamin C and R-Lipoate in a nanoliposomal delivery system potently harnesses the potential of Vitamin C to the power of a fully functioning glutathione system.

The absorption of conventional oral Vitamin C diminishes rapidly as the dose increases (e.g., about 19% for 1000 mg oral vitamin C). Nanosphere delivery greatly increases absorption and for some compounds can provide higher intracellular delivery than an IV administration.

Quicksilver Vitamin C

Quicksilver Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid

Suggested Usage: General use for antioxidant and detoxification function, take eight pumps per day (1,000 mg of Vitamin C and 50 mg of R-Lipoate). For advanced intermittent use, use up to 50 pumps per day (6,250 mg Vitamin C and 312.5 mg R-Lipoate) or more, in divided doses throughout the day. For detoxification protocols, especially with metal toxicities, build dosage gradually, starting from low doses, as they are tolerated. If strong detoxification reactions are observed, back off dosage. Children should start at approximately 1/4 of adult (two pumps per day) dosage and work up. For topical application, one pump can cover the face for a daily treatment, or use several pumps as a mask and leave on for 10–15 minutes; skin can be re-wetted and left for another 10 minutes before rinsing off excess.

Liposomal Glutathione: Quicksilver’s Phospholipid Encapsulation Etheric Delivery system protects glutathione from digestive enzymes that otherwise inhibit absorption of oral glutathione supplementation. In cell cultures, liposomal products have demonstrated over 100 times more efficiency for intracellular delivery than IV-based liposomal glutathione.

Quicksilver’s Liposomal Glutathione comes with a precision pump to accurately deliver 50 mg of reduced glutathione and 68 mg of injectable-grade essential phospholipids (derived from sunflower oil) per pump. The patent-pending process, plus a natural lemon flavoring, allows this product to be taken intra-orally for maximum absorption without the foul sulfur taste typical of liposomal glutathione products. The formula can be taken every 3–4 hours for even delivery throughout the day. One bottle delivers 100, 0.5 ml doses.

Quicksilver Liposomal Glutathione

Quicksilver Liposomal Glutathione with Lemon Mint

Suggested Usage: For general antioxidant and detoxification protection, use eight pumps per day (400 mg glutathione). For advanced protection, use up to 20 per day (1,000 mg glutathione) or more, in divided doses throughout the day. For large doses, take two pumps at a time to allow for maximum oral absorption, and hold at least 30 seconds before swallowing. Children should start at approximately 1/4 of adult (two pumps per day) dosage and work up.

Liposomal Colorado Hemp Oil: This product uses non-THC (<0.3%) cannabidiol (CBD) from all-natural Colorado Hemp Oil. CBD is the non-psychoactive part of the industrial hemp plant. Quicksilver Scientific’s liposomal delivery of Nanoemulsified Colorado Hemp Oil far outpaces tinctures and is faster, stronger and more effective. Cannabidiol interacts with our body’s naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors to aid with pain relief and enhanced feelings of well being. The advanced technology behind this groundbreaking liquid delivery method makes for precise dosing and immediate effect.

Because of the known interaction of CBD with these cannabidiol receptors, much new research has focused on CBD’s receptor-mediated neuro-protective, antiemetic, and analgesic properties, and of its effect on mood and other aspects of mental health.

New research on gene transcription modulation offers an even deeper look into the biochemical mechanisms at work when ingesting CBD. Research in this vein has shown more than 1,000 genes that are differentially upregulated by CBD (a more than ten-fold increase than those affected by THC). In general, the effects increased cell stress responses—including antioxidant-defense and detoxification genes (mainly via EhRE/ARE-Nrf2 induction)—and downregulated many inflammation-mediating genes. These effects combined with CBDs NMDA-receptor-stabilizing effects, show great promise for its use in calming the neuro-inflammatory responses accompanying neurotoxic and chronic illness states.

Suggested Use: Take 1–4 pumps by mouth, holding for 30 seconds before swallowing. Repeat if needed. Four pumps contain 30 mg of Hemp Extract (aerial parts) and 12 mg of Phytocannabinoid Diols. There are 25 four-pump servings per container. Best taken on an empty stomach 10 minutes before meals. May be stirred into a small amount of water. Once opened, use within 60 days. Store at room temperature and away from light.

Liposomal NanoMojo (adaptogenic blend): Dr. Christopher Shade, PhD of Quicksilver Scientific, collaborated with master herbalist Dan Moriarty of Sun Horse Energy to create NanoMojo, a groundbreaking functional medicine product. By combining Moriarty’s unique adaptogenic formulation with Dr. Shade’s state-of-the-art liposomal encapsulation, they’ve overcome the limitations of poor oral adsorption and made the phytochemicals quickly available at the cellular level. This new innovative blend of adaptogens from around the world is maximized for effectiveness.

Adaptogens are non-toxic phytochemicals that help the body achieve homeostatic balance under adverse conditions that would typically be associated with sympathetic (fight or flight) reactions. They help regulate natural harmony, adrenal balance, and stress accommodation (resistance to stress). In fact, adaptogenic herbs have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for more than 4,000 years and Chinese medicine for nearly 3,000 years to increase energy (chi) and concentration.

Scientific literature reports that adaptogenic herbs play significant roles in decreasing markers of stress-activated protein kinases, cortisol, and nitric oxide. These markers indicate a lowered level of systemic stress and inflammation and decreased symptoms of an over-taxed adrenal system.

NanoMojo contains the following adaptogenic herbs: Açaí, Lyceum (Goji) fruit, Gynostemma (Jiaogulan) (aerial parts), American Ginseng (root), Siberian Ginseng (root), Schisandra (fruit), Licorice (root), Rhodiola (root), Astragalus (root), Reishi (fruiting body), Catuaba (bark), Stinging Nettle (aerial parts), Saw Palmetto (fruit), Guarana (seed), Ashwagandha (root), Tribulus (aerial parts), Epimedium (aerial parts), Yohimbe (bark), and Organic Maple (sap) syrup.

NanoMojo helps your body adapt to the various conditions that cause stress, something most of us experience daily. This liposomal formulation is the culmination of more than eight years of research and development. Not only is it effective, but it also tastes very good.

Directions: Take two pumps twice daily, or more. May be mixed into a small amount of water. Best taken on an empty stomach. Once opened, use within 60 days.

CONCLUSION

The advent of small liposomes means significantly greater uptake and assimilation of nutrients than ever before. This means you stand to benefit greatly from advanced intra-orally delivered nanoliposomal formulas like those developed by Quicksilver Scientific, Inc.

Super-Tasty Morning Nutritional Drinks

Dr. Hank Liers, PhD morning nutritional drinksFred Liers PhDRecently, a Facebook follower posed to us a significant question:

If I wanted to jam pack as much ZING/Nutrition/Taste into a 2–3 oz shot for work every morning…WHAT ingredients would you recommend I blend together?”

As I began thinking about his question, I realized many people could benefit from my answer. Certainly many of our customers are satisfied using HPDI’s multivitamins, Rejuvenate!™ superfoods,  and other foundational supplements to create optimal nutrition. There’s no question I’ve formulated many highly nutrient-dense antioxidant formulas, multivitamins, and superfoods.

But his question focuses on how to blend up a shot-type concoction offering highly concentrated nutrition in just a few ounces of nutritional drink. Here was a challenge about which I felt confident we could succeed. But I had no way of predicting exactly what our nutritional drink would look like. We had to build it.

My team set to work in the kitchen creating and sampling drinks that would satisfy these requirements. And that could provide answers to his question about how to pack nutrition, taste, and “zing” into highly concentrated shot-type drinks.

Fast forward to today. After much tasting and tinkering, we have created a practically “perfect” nutritional drink! Now we can our provide answers to the original question.

FORMULATING CONCENTRATED NUTRITIONAL DRINKS

I have been creating nutritional drinks in my own life for a long time. And many of my professional formulation efforts have focused on providing super nutrition. As I see it, here are the basic requirements for this type of concentrated nutritional drink:

  • Easy Preparation
  • Nutritionally Dense
  • Readily Available Ingredients
  • Great Tasting!

I have formulated many excellent supplements in a capsule form that can easily be opened and put into in a nutritional drink. The base for such a drink can naturally be one of my Rejuvenate! superfoods. These superfoods truly are loaded with fantastic nutrient density. Extra zing can come from organic juices. My favorites belong to Knudsen’s brand of organic “Just” fruit juices available from natural foods stores nationwide.

Dr. Hank's Morning Energy Drink

A MODEL FORMULA FOR NUTRITIONAL DRINKS

  • Rejuvenate! Berries & Herbs (1 scoop or 2.5 tbsp)
  • 2 PRO-C™ capsules
  • 2 Ultimate Protector capsules
  • 1 Myo-Mag capsule
  • 1 B-Complex-50 capsule
  • 1 Immune Assist capsule
  • 1 Prescript Assist capsule
  • 2 oz of Organic Cherry/Blueberry/Raspberry/Pomeganate/Cranberry Juice
  • 1 oz of Organic Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Organic Strawberries/Blueberries/Blackberries/Raspberries/etc. (Must be blended.)
  • 1–2 oz Water (Fresh Filtered or Purified)
  • 1–2 tsp Chia Seeds
  • 2–4 drops Stevia Liquid or other natural sweetener (as desired)

We prepared nutritional drinks several times according to my formula (using cherry juice, strawberries, and blackberries). The formula actually makes about six ounces. It tastes so good that all of it goes down easily. However, three ounces could be stored in a small glass container for consuming later in the day. I use a hand blender and glass mason jars to blend the nutritional drinks, but any quality blender will work.

Berries for the drink

NOTABLE NUTRITION AMOUNTS (APPROXIMATE)

  • 7 grams Protein
  • 3 grams Fat (mostly essential fats)
  • 8 grams Fiber
  • 8 grams natural sugars (mostly from the fruits and fruit juices)
  • 1.7 grams Vitamin C
  • 150,000+ ORAC5.0 units for antioxidant support
  • 195 mg Dietary Nucleic Acids (RNA/DNA)
  • Complete Multivitamin with more than twice the Daily Value for each vitamin
  • Prebiotics & Probiotics
  • Enzyme Complex (for digestive support)

Note: For variation, you can prepare nutritional drinks using other Rejuvenate! superfood formulas.

All Three Rejuvenates

“YAY” & “WOW” FACTORS!!

“Wow!” That was our first response to the drinks we concocted. The taste is there, and it we love it. The nutrition is there, and we feel it. The fact this drink is so nutritionally dense and delicious contribute marvelously to its fulfilling character. Fresh, live ingredients (like the raw berries and chia seeds) also contribute mightily to its overall satisfying taste and feel.

This drink is enjoyable when sipped, but it’s not too finicky to be downed as a shot. It’s versatile. “Yay!”

We often enjoy nutritional drinks chilled, although that may be especially the case as warmer temperatures approach. It’s still winter (at least sort of winter-like here in Arizona this year) and to us this drink tastes equally good at room temperature. You can probably taste some of its finer nuances when it’s unchilled. Of course, whether you chill your nutritional drink is up to you and your taste buds.

However you choose to prepare it, the basic nutritional drink formula should provide all the taste, nutrition, and “zing” you crave! We are pleased we can provide many of the basic ingredients you’ll need to create such delicious, healthy concoctions.

So “Cheers!,” “Bon appetite!,” Bottom’s Up!” or whatever phrase you like best. We love our nutritional drinks. We hope you enjoy yours!

FINAL THOUGHTS

There are many variations of the basic formula we have given for tasty morning super nutritional drinks. Don’t feel compelled to make it exactly our way. Create a variation that suits your taste, or try creating different variations. In any case, there will be high density nutrition if you include most of the basic ingredients (e.g., Rejuvenate! superfoods, Ultimate Protector™, PRO-C™, Myo-Mag, etc.).

As fast and easy as making nutritional drinks can be, you might also try preparing your drink the night before the morning you consume it. That is, just because you may not have time every morning to make the drink doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it anyway. Just whip it up the night before and keep it in the refrigerator. The many antioxidant nutrients (e.g., provided by PRO-C™ and Ultimate Protector™) in the drink will keep it fresh, entact, and help preserve its nutritional value.

As far as obtaining ingredients goes, these nutritional drinks are easy to make using ingredients easily purchased from us at Health Products Distributors, Inc. (www.IntegratedHealth.com) and your favorite local natural foods stores.

A New Unified Field Theory

When I was a physics graduate student in the 1960s, I took many courses in quantum physics and became familiar with the concept of the zero point or vacuum energy field. Because this field basically contained an infinite amount of energy (a singularity), it had to be “normalized” out of the equations because the equations could not deal with singularities.

We also learned about what is known as the “strong force” which was invented to accommodate the fact that the positively charged protons in a nucleus did not cause the nucleus to fly apart due to coulomb repulsion. We did not know the source of this strong force!

More recently, physicist Nassim Haramein presented a new Unified Field Theory based upon a fractal geometry of the universe that consists of a 64 tetrahedral structure. This structure allows for an infinite number of elements within a finite boundary and leads to the concept of many black holes existing within the structure. Interestingly, this geometry was alluded to and written about in many ancient civilizations.

At the July 2010 Nexus Conference in Australia, Nassim simply and beautifully presents his theory (in “Sacred Geometry & Unified Fields”). His theory shows how all black holes in the Universe are connected to the zero point field, and this leads to the intelligent structuring of all things. Black holes exist at all levels of the Universe starting at the smallest level, going to nuclei, molecules, cells, organ structures, beings, planets, solar systems, galaxies, etc.

Nassim’s theory clearly shows how we are all one through our connection to the zero point field! Also, his theory is able to effectively deal with singularities and shows that the “strong force” is actually a gravitational force due to the presence of black holes.

I recommend you view the YouTube video (above) of his presentation. It is unlikely after viewing it you will view the universe (or yourself) in the same way again!! In many ways, the work of Nassim Haramein carries concepts presented in Lynn McTaggart’s masterful work The Field to new levels!

From a practical point of view, the New Unified Field Theory gives us hope we can tap into the zero point field. By tapping into the field, we could, for example, obtain all the low-cost energy we desire to fuel our needs on this planet, or to travel to other destinations in our galaxy or the Universe!

As Nassim states, “if we tap this energy that’s in space everywhere…we can produce enough power to power a whole planet for thousands and thousands of years….”

Now that’s something worthy of pursuing!

Mr. Haramein continues developing his ideas at the Resonance Project in Hawaii.
