Questions & Answers
Q: There are references in Dr Theo's work to Neuroprotek being a liposomal formulation with the olive kernel oil. My understanding of liposomal formulations such as the various lipo-C and lipo-glutathione supplements on the market is that means encasing the particles in tiny spheres of phospholipids. Obviously, olive kernel oil is not a phospholipid. Is there something I'm missing? Or is calling neuroprotek a liposomal formulation just a "loose" description? See for instance, the wikipedia page on liposomes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liposome. I wonder what Dr Theo's take is?
A: Olive kernel oil contains many lipids, including phospholipids. Any time you add energy to an oil it assumes the least energy configuration which is a sphere. The more energy you provide, the smaller the microspheres. During this process, the microspheres encapsulate the solutes, in this case the flavonoids. NeuroProtex is prepared by mixing the ingredients with olive kernel oil using a proprietary procedure. Even though the word liposome was originally coined to mean use of synthetic phospholipids, it is used for any type of liposomamal preparation. If the term microsphere is preferable for the public, we can use this instead.
