WHAT IS BIOGLUTE® COMPLEX?
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.
