Phytosomes are recently introduced herbal formulations that are better absorbed, and as a result produce better bioavailability and actions than the conventional phytomolecules or botanical extracts. This is an advanced form of herbal formulations which contains the bioactive phytoconstituents of herbal extract bounded in a lipophilic carrier. Phytosome technology has been effectively used to enhance the bioavailability of many popular herbal extracts and phytoconstituents including Ginkgo biloba, milk thistle, grape seed, green tea, hawthorn, ginseng etc and can be developed for various therapeutic uses or dietary supplements.

Keywords: Phytosomes, absorption, phospholipids, bioavailability.
