Liposomes-why nature selects them for optimal nutrient delivery.
Proven absorption that rivals nature.
Our liposomal Omega-3 is clinically-proven to be 5x better absorbed than standard fish oil pills.
A recently completed long chain fatty acid plasma PK study with Huntington Medical Research Institute evaluated the absorption benefits of Needed’s liposomes against triglyceride gel caps. Both the liposomes and the gel caps contained Omega-3 DHA and EPA triglycerides from algae (i.e. where fish naturally get their DHA and EPA). The study also compared the absorption of DHA and EPA from the liposomes against published norms for DHA and EPA uptake from whole oily fish and ethyl ester gel gaps.
Our expert partners
We’ve partnered with the leading experts on natural nutrient delivery to create our liposomal products. Our expert team of researchers and biochemists have over 40+ years of experience in replicating nature’s optimal nutrient delivery method.
Dr. Crispin Eley, Ph.D.
Crispin is a research scientist and entrepreneur, focusing his efforts on product development for commercially viable liposomal formulations. Alongside Needed, Crispin is realizing his dream of harnessing the power of liposomes to deliver natural ingredients to improve women’s and family health. Crispin holds both a B.A. (honors) and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Oxford University.
Dr. John Baldeschwieler
Professor emeritus, Caltech
Professor Baldeschwieler is a J. S. Johnson Professor of Chemistry, Emeritus at California Institute of Technology beginning his tenure there in 1973. He is a National Medal of Science recipient for his public service and scientific contributions, and worked as Deputy Director of the Office of Science and Technology in The White House from 1970-1972. Professor Baldeschwieler has dedicated his career to the study and applicability of natural delivery systems, namely liposomal technology.
While at Caltech, he was responsible for commercializing some of the first and most successful pharmaceutical liposomal applications. He founded Vestar, Inc. and served as the Chairman of its Board of Directors before it merged into NeXstar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (acquired by Gilead, Inc.). He founded other companies, such as Combion, and served as Director of the Huntington Medical Research Institutes. He taught at Harvard and Stanford before joining the faculty at Caltech. Professor Baldeschwieler completed his undergraduate studies in Chemical Engineering at Cornell University and earned a Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of California, Berkeley.
Omega-3 is one of the most clinically-studied and validated nutrients, with proven benefits for before, during, and after pregnancy. Dig into the nutrition research with us below.
