Question: Are liposomal supplements really superior?
I doubt it. So I think the evidence indicates that liposomes don't survive digestion unless they are pegylated, which means that they have polyethylene glycol that's attached to the liposome to protect them from digestion. There are a number of other such modifications that can be made, but I don't think that applies to most liposomal things on the market. So I'm generally very skeptical of the claims that liposomal will offer superior delivery, particularly if they're not being specifically designed to survive digestion, which most are not.
