Are there potential health risks associated with Phospholipids derived from soy?
Like many beans and grains, raw soybeans contain a variety of phytochemicals. There is research on both sides of the soy debate showing that these phytochemicals provide a variety of health benefits, as well as potential health risks under certain conditions. The phytochemicals associated with potential health risks are often referred to as anti-nutrients.
At LivOn Labs, we use highly purified phospholipids derived from soy lecithin. Virtually all of the anti-nutrients (including phytoestrogens) naturally found in soybeans, along with soy protein (which is of allergic concern to some individuals), are removed during the extraction process.
What remains is a high percentage of phospholipids like Phosphatidylcholine (PC), Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and Phosphatidylinositol (PI). The benefits of phospholipids found in lecithin have been well documented since the early
 As defined by the Linus Pauling Institute, phytochemicals are chemicals produced by plants that are generally thought to affect health, but are not essential nutrients.
 Anti-nutrients are natural or synthetic compounds that interfere with the absorption of nutrients.

Is Sunflower Lecithin Safer than Soy Lecithin?
We have not found any evidence that soy or sunflower lecithin is unsafe. Sunflower lecithin is a wonderful source of phospholipids; it is not going to contain the same amounts of phytochemicals as a whole sunflower kernel. The same applies to high-quality soy lecithin and purified phospholipids extracted from soy lecithin – neither
 Dr. Katherine Phillips of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University compiled a comprehensive paper that covers the range of phytochemicals found in sunflower kernels in her Final Report on the “Phytochemicals in Sunflower (Helianthus annuus)” from April 2000.

Should I be concerned that the liposomes are so small they could end up anywhere in the body, and not just necessarily where they were intended?
Since the liposomes are not made of toxic substances and do not contain toxic materials, there would be no harm to the body if a liposome crossed the blood-brain barrier. In fact, the possibility of crossing the blood-brain barrier can be helpful since the essential fatty acids in the phospholipids and the encapsulated vitamins can provide essential nutrition to the brain.
How do I identify a legitimate liposome encapsulated supplement?
