Vibrant & Clear Phospholipids are an essential component to any nutritional supplement protocol or daily regimen. Proper nutrient processes are important in supporting a healthy, functioning system.
This product goes well beyond the typical powder phospholipid product. Our formulators carefully selected the matrix of phospholipids required to promote healthy mitochondrial membrane function, employing a proprietary method to stabilize the lipids to maintain efficacy.
Vibrant & Clear Phospholipid Wafers, through the process of Membrane Lipid Replacement (MLR) and is intended to reverse the damage done to our cells and mitochondria by oxidative stress.
MLR is the process by which healthy phospholipids in the supplement are absorbed in the gastrointestinal system and transported through the body to replace damaged lipids in the membranes of cells and mitochondria. The Vibrant & Clear Phospholipid Wafers are a unique combination that allows the healthy phospholipids to stay intact during transport through the body; probiotics create a stable environment in the gut that allow the healthy lipids to travel through and get absorbed in the digestive tract without being degraded, growth media enhances the colonization of probiotics and antioxidants neutralize free radicals in the body before they can attack and degrade the healthy lipids.
Phospholipids (pronounced fos-fo-lipids) are prime building blocks of life. They are found in humans, all animals, plants, and the simplest life forms. Phospholipids are essential components of all biological membranes and are required for normal cellular structure and function. Some phospholipids are most likely conditional essential nutrients: for their in vivo synthesis multiple enzymes and cofactors are required.
Dietary phospholipid intake has declined in the past 100 years, mainly due to increased food refining and processing. Today's foods contain approximately one third of the phospholipid levels compared to the beginning of the last century.
Phospholipids are orthomolecules—“molecules orthodox to the body”, as defined by the late Nobel biochemist Linus Pauling. Phospholipids have a unique molecular organization that probably rendered them integral to life. Phospholipid mixtures were among the first health foods, and more sophisticated preparations have emerged as versatile nutraceuticals and functional food constituents.
The phospholipid molecule is charged at one end and uncharged at the other. This endows phospholipids with emulsifying, wetting, and self- assembly properties, all of which are successfully employed in the human body design. Self-assembly generates the membranes which all cells require for their essential functions. These three-dimensional, sheet-like molecular assemblies consist mostly of catalytic proteins built into a continuous matrix assembled from phospholipids.
The human body uses phospholipids as emulsifiers (in the bile digestive fluid) and as surface-active wetting agents (in the lungs, intestines, and kidneys for example). Phospholipids are also used to assemble the circulating lipoproteins (LDL and HDL) that transport fat-soluble nutrients around the body.
Membrane Lipid Replacement (MLR)
Membrane Lipid Replacement (MLR) is the process of supplying the body with pristine phospholipids that are protected during ingestion to be used by the mitochondria.
Using a dietary supplement containing polyunsaturated phosphatidylcholines, phospholipids and fatty acids that are essential structural and functional components of all biological cell membranes is a convenient way to administer lipid replacement therapy on a daily basis.
Healthy Cells: Phospholipids vs Antioxidants
Inside every cell of your body, electrical charges are constantly occurring. These charges are important to facilitate the transport of vital nutrients and wastes in and out of the cell. This process is what gives the cell energy, life, and health. When membranes become damaged due to free radical damage, these charges no longer operate at peak levels. As we age the ability to repair such damage is diminished. Even if you're young the loss of energy can still happen.
All bio-membranes are composed of a varying ratio of proteins and phospholipids. It is the phospholipids that are damaged and change over time due to free-radical attack & oxidization. Anti-oxidants work to try to slow down this activity by neutralizing free radicals that damage membranes. However, when damage is already done, then traditional antioxidants have little ability to repair that damage. Now, the lipids available in Vibrant & Clear Wafers, can replace the damaged phospholipids in membranes with vibrant healthy phospholipids.
