Abstract

Phytosome is a patented technology that incorporates standardized plant extracts into phospholipids to create lipid-soluble molecular complexes with improved bioavailability and absorption. These phyto-constituents are increasingly important due to their nutritional and medicinal properties, but their bioavailability remains poor. Phytosome drug delivery is a method developed to enhance their bioavailability and is compatible in-vivo. Preparation methods are easy and can be characterized using techniques like FTIR, PXRD, DSC, SEM, TEM, and HNMR. Phytosomes can be used to augment the bioavailability of plant constituents and treat incurable diseases with less side effects. Phytosomes are formed by reacting a stoichiometric amount of phospholipid with standardized herbal extract or polyphenolic constituents in an aprotic solvent. Phosphatidylcholine molecules in phytosomes have hepatoprotective activity and nutritional value.  In this article, we are going to keep an eye on  Phytosomes Overview.
