Quicksilver nutraceuticals feature liposomes that are small enough to pass between cells and enter the bloodstream directly, guaranteeing optimal bioavailability.
Did you know that many herbs, vitamins, minerals, and other botanicals degrade due to the hepatic first-pass-effect? This means that the supplement in question is first delivered to the liver via the portal vein , where it degrades. Hence, by the time it reaches the gastrointestinal tract, only a fraction of the medicine reaches you. And if oral bioavailability is reduced, that means many supplemental products end up being bunk.
A liposome is a tiny phospholipid vesicle that mimics the body’s own cell structure. So liposomes may be better absorbed across cell membranes, in a way that is not possible for ordinary water-soluble or fat-soluble nutrients.
At their highest expression, liposomes bring the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery. Quicksilver Delivery Systems® begins absorbing as soon as they hit your mouth, so you can get high absorption before they are altered by the harsh processes within the intestines.
Each Quicksilver nutraceutical works independently to support 24-hour wellness. GABA w/ L-Theanine keeps your brain function stable, allowing you to always stay calm and alert in high-stress situations, while enjoying a peaceful night’s rest. Glutathione is essential to destroying free radicals which naturally occur and can harm organs and tissues throughout the body. Lastly, Vitamin C w/ R-Lipoic Acid provides premier detoxification throughout the body.
Most importantly, each nutraceutical is encapsulated with liposomal. Liposomal formulation supports the increased uptake of nutrients where they are needed, and the Quicksilver pump method allows the amino acids to be absorbed sublingually. Oral immersion allows the nutrients and amino acids to enter the bloodstream directly before reaching the stomach, where nutrients can be destroyed and intake is minimized.
Combined, all three Quicksilver nutraceuticals provide a balanced system that protects the body, day and night.
1. Quicksilver Liposomal GABA w/ L-Theanine brings natural calm to the brain to ward off daily stressors and balance the mind and body, allowing you to end the day with well-deserved sleep.
2. Quicksilver Liposomal Glutathione was formulated to boost immunity and destroy free radicals before they cause damage to cells, tissues, and organs.
3. Quicksilver Liposomal Vitamin C w/ R-Lipoic Acid combines two of the most powerful and versatile antioxidants to support detoxification throughout the body.
In all three products, Quicksilver Delivery Systems® utilizes modern science to unleash the curative power of nature. With the world’s most advanced phospholipid delivery systems, Quicksilver Scientific supplements actually nourish your cells with phosphatidylcholine, as they deliver their core effective ingredients faster and more efficiently.
Sleep deprivation is on the rise, in our high-paced society. The National Institutes of Health estimates that roughly 30 percent of the general population complains of sleep disruption, and approximately 10 percent have associated symptoms of daytime functionality. Toxins, processed foods, stress, electromagnetic fog, travel, and blue light are just a few things that can throw off our body’s circadian rhythm. To combat this, Quicksilver Liposomal GABA w/ L-Theanine offers two key ingredients in a perfect formulation that brings natural calm to the brain to ward off daily stressors, while balancing mind and body, and allowing you to end the day with well-deserved sleep.
GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) is one of the body’s inhibitory neurotransmitters. As a naturally produced substance, GABA helps induce relaxation and sleep. It is well-known for supporting healthy pituitary function and provides a calming effect on over-stimulated neurons. This is especially helpful during the body’s natural fight-or-flight response, since GABA allows you to keep calm, stay in control, and react more consciously to high-stress situations. GABA receptors are found not only in the brain but also in the gut, suggesting they can help regulate healthy GI function.
L-Theanine is a calming amino acid, typically found in green tea. After supplementing with L-Theanine, brain wave patterns can smooth out, much like they do with meditation, allowing the body to balance and reduce levels of mental strain.
Studies have shown that taking L-Theanine affects the emission of alpha waves and the levels of dopamine and GABA in the brain. All three support focus, relaxation, improved memory, and improved learning. Research indicates that L-Theanine may also support gamma delta T cell production for enhanced immune response by boosting glutathione, an important antioxidant that is imperative when it comes to bolstering the liver, a detox organ. Additionally, research suggests that as L-theanine crosses the blood-brain barrier it may support healthy neurotransmitter levels in the brain and inhibit the negative side effects of caffeine, such as jitters and nervousness.
Together, GABA and L-Theanine support balance throughout the nervous system, reduce feelings of mental and physical stress, and promote feelings of relaxation.
Why Quicksilver Scientific
Unfortunately, most oral GABA supplements are destroyed in digestion and never make it into the blood. Quicksilver Scientific etheric delivery is different. Liposomal encapsulation ensures the nutrients can diffuse into the body for highly absorbed, more effective nutrition.
On their own, oral GABA supplements, in the form of capsules or tablets, don’t optimize absorption. For this reason, Dr. Christopher Shade, Ph.D., developed Liposomal GABA with L-Theanine. The liposomal formulation supports the increased uptake of nutrients where they are needed and the pump method allows the amino acids to be absorbed sublingually to enter the bloodstream directly instead of breaking down in the stomach before reaching the bloodstream.
Additionally, some liposomal products use larger and less effective liposomes of 200-1000 nanometers. Quicksilver Liposomal GABA w/ L-Theanine liposomes are 20-100 nanometers, offering superior effectiveness and bioavailability.
Suggested Use: Take two pumps by mouth as needed. Hold in mouth 30 seconds before swallowing. Take on an empty stomach, 10 minutes before a meal. Use within 50 days of opening. If pregnant consult physician before use.

Free radicals are like a car being driven by a drunk driver; they wreak havoc throughout your body, carelessly crashing into a property and causing damage. In this case, your organs, tissues, and joints are the damaged property.
Free radicals are atoms with unpaired electrons. Without a partner, these electrons become highly unstable and start devastating chain reactions throughout your body. Quicksilver Liposomal Glutathione was formulated to boost immunity and destroy free radicals before they cause damage.
Produced in liver cells, glutathione is the main antioxidant that’s naturally produced in your body, making it a master detoxifier. Glutathione binds to toxins (free radicals or heavy metals) and expels them from your body during urination and defecation. As a master detoxifier, glutathione protects the skin, lens, cornea, and retina against radiation damage (caused from UV rays), while also improving metabolic energy and enhancing the immune system. With less everyday toxins attacking the body (pollution, stress), your body’s immune system can focus on more detrimental threats that can wreak havoc internally.
Being able to destroy free radicals and boost immunity allows glutathione to provide other essential functions such as:
- reducing oxides to regulate cell growth and division
- protecting DNA from oxidative stress and repairing mutated DNA by replacing the DNA’s missing electron
- providing resistance from UV damage
- allowing for proper protein and amino acid synthesis
- making toxins water soluble for easy excretion
Quicksilver Liposomal Vitamin C w/ R-Lipoic Acid combines two of the most powerful and versatile antioxidants — Vitamin C and Lipoic Acid — to support detoxification throughout the body. In addition to functioning as extraordinary antioxidants on their own, both support increased levels of glutathione in the body.
Free radicals are atoms with unpaired electrons. Without a partner, these electrons become highly unstable and start devastating chain reactions throughout your body. Even in small amounts Vitamin C can protect the body from damage by free radicals. It is vital to immune function and is an essential cofactor in many enzymatic reactions in the body.
Vitamin C is essential to the body’s production of collagen and the formation of blood vessels, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and skin. It is needed for wound healing and to repair tissues throughout the body. R-Lipoic Acid (as the highly bioavailable sodium R-lipoate) supports the action of vitamin C. It is a potent antioxidant that can cross the blood-brain barrier, support healthy mitochondrial function, and help the body remove metals.
Both vitamin C and R-Lipoic Acid help increase levels of glutathione. Produced in liver cells, glutathione is the main antioxidant that’s naturally produced in your body, making it a master detoxifier. Glutathione binds to toxins (free radicals or heavy metals) and expels them from your body during urination and defecation. Glutathione protects the skin, lens, cornea, and retina against radiation damage (caused from UV rays), while also improving metabolic energy and enhancing the immune system. With less everyday toxins attacking the body (pollution, stress), your body’s immune system can focus on more detrimental threats that can wreak havoc internally.
