Liposomal Vitamin D Therapy

by Marisa B.

A new popular fad of liposomal vitamins is really picking up leeway in the natural health arena. And since i am very vitamin D Deficient, it was suggested to me that I should take a liposomal Vitamin D supplement.

Is this therapy faster as replinishing low levels of Vitamin D? If so, Do i also need to supplement with Vitamin K, A, and Magnesium as instructed for the vitamin D pack?

Please advise.

No reason
by: Kerri Knox, RN

There is no reason or advantage that I am aware of to take Liposomal Vitamin D over just plain Vitamin D3. Liposomal vitamins are for those vitamins that it is difficult or impossible for one to absorb, or to absorb sufficient amounts for certain health conditions.

For instance, it's very difficult to get sufficient amounts of Vitamin C for, for instance, assisting in cancer treatment, so therefore Liposomal Vitamin C can be beneficial (although Vitality Vitamin C is formulated so that one can absorb far more without the gastric distress of other Vitamin C's and is therefore as good, if not better than Liposomal Vitamin C).

Glutathione is another example. In most forms, it cannot be absorbed through the stomach, so a liposomal form can help increase absorption.

However, in the case of Vitamin D, there are no such limitations for it's use, so there is no reason to use liposomal Vitamin D. And to date, i am unaware of any study showing that liposomal Vitamin D 'gets in your system faster' or brings levels up more quickly. In fact, that may not even be beneficial to get levels up more quickly since Vitamin D uses up cofactors, such as Vitamin K and magnesium, which could lead to severe problems if you were to raise Vitamin D levels faster than nature intended.

It sounds like a marketing scheme based on no actual research. Until someone shows me some independent laboratory study showing that it's superior, there does not seem to be any reason to use Liposomal Vitamin D. If it WERE superior, I'd offer it, since I have access to both Liposomal Vitamin D and 'regular' Vitamin D. But I see no benefit to liposomal Vitamin D, so I'll continue to offer 'regular' Vitamin D only.

And yes, everyone needs to have sufficient Vitamin A, magnesium, and Vitamin K when taking Vitamin D. These are all included in the Vitamin D Absorption Pack that I offer for your convenience of having all of these nutrients all in one pack so that one decreases their chances of experiencing any Vitamin D Side Effects, and to maximize absorption.
