Almond Butter & Jelly Liposomal Smoothie with DHA & MCT (16 oz)
ENERGY | COGNITIVE FUNCTION | OVERALL HEALTH
Our Almond Butter & Jelly Liposomal Smoothie contains MCT Oil, derived from coconut, and Vegan Omega-3s in the form of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), derived from sustainably sourced Algal Oil! So what exactly is a liposome? Liposomes are tiny spherical structures, with a protective outer layer and an inner cavity, which may hold and transport substances such as vitamins, drugs, or other nutrients to the body. These tiny structures encapsulate these substances and can lead to enhanced absorption! Our vegan liquid drops contain DHA Omega-3s which are important for cognitive function. Additionally this product contains MCT (medium-chain triacylglycerol) Oil which, when compared to long-chain triglycerides (LCTs), may support increased energy levels and a healthy weight. This product combines two great ingredients — DHA and MCT Oil — to support your overall health, and unlike other fishy omegas, our Almond Butter & Jelly Smoothie DHA & MCT is a delicious addition to your daily routine!
Each bottle comes with 30 servings.

Q: How do I know what an appropriate dose is for my family when there are no recommended daily values for Omega-3s and MCT?
A: It is true that there are no FDA recommendations for daily intake of Omega-3s or MCT oil, which makes it hard to know what an appropriate dose might be! For Omega-3s, recommendations from health organizations for daily intake vary from 250-500 mg of DHA & EPA, with an upper limit around 3-5 g. We’ve created the following chart with suggested dosages but ultimately, in order to make the best health decisions possible for you and your family, we recommend speaking with your physician or healthcare professional to determine what dose is best.
|4-8 Years||¼ TBSP (100 mg DHA & 1 g MCT)|
|9-13 Years||1/2 TBSP (200 mg DHA & 2 g MCT)|
|14+ Years||1 TBSP or 15 mL (400 mg DHA & 4 g MCT)|
Q: What is the best way to take this?
A: One of the most exciting aspects of this supplement is that its delicious flavor lends itself to a variety of ways that it can be taken!
Though you can take your Almond Butter & Jelly Smoothie with DHA & MCT directly, we recommend taking this with food for the best experience. Since MCTs absorb directly into the bloodstream through the small intestine with no need for digestive enzymes to release, ingesting it on an empty stomach may cause some individuals to experience stomach pain or cramping. However, taking MCT oil with food, may help mitigate those side effects since the MCTs will be less rapidly absorbed, slowed down slightly by triggering the digestive process during the time of ingestion.
With a unique almond butter and jelly flavor, some great ideas for taking this product include adding it to your coffee, favorite smoothie, or even drizzling it as a topping on bananas, toast, pancakes, and more!
Q: What is Micelle Liposomal delivery?
A: This is the delivery mechanism for our current liposomal products. Depending on the product, vitamins or other nutrients are encapsulated into nano-sized micelles which are then enveloped into liposomes. The liposomal structures allow the encapsulated substances they are delivering to be absorbed more efficiently by the gut.
Q: What is your vegan omega-3 DHA source?
A: While most omega supplements use cod liver oil or another fishy source, our Almond Butter & Jelly Liposomal Smoothie with DHA & MCT uses DHA derived from algal oil, which is sourced from an ocean-friendly, wild strain of sustainably-grown micro-algae. Algal oil is an incredible source of DHA!
Q: What is the lifespan of this liposomal product?
A: The shelf life for our Almond Butter & Jelly Smoothie with DHA & MCT is 18 months in a cool, dry place away from oxygen and moisture in its sealed container. Once open and refrigerated, the shelf life is still 18 months. If stored refrigerated and sealed, the shelf life is 2 years.
