WHAT IS BIOGLUTE
BioGlute Complex is a proprietary liposomal
blend that combines reduced glutathione and specialized liposomes
enriched with purified phosphatidylcholine. Phosphatidylcholine (PC),
an essential phospholipid, is a major component of the body's cell
membranes. This also includes the gastric mucosa, where oral
supplementation with PC has been shown to provide gastrointestinal
support to damaged cells.
Phosphatidylcholine and lecithin are often used
interchangeably to mean, "purified phosphatidylcholine." This can be
a misleading as lecithin extract is actually a complex mixture of
phospholipids, glycolipids, and triglycerides, containing less than
20% total phosphatidylcholine composition. The liposomes that make
up BioGlute Complex contain more than four times the amount of
phosphatidylcholine found in lecithin liposomes, increasing
glutathione's absorption potential. That is the BioGlute advantage.
