Quicksilver Scientific


Dr. Christopher Shade, PhD – Founder and CEO

Specializes in the biological, environmental, and analytical chemistry of mercury in all its forms and their interactions with sulfur compounds, particularly glutathione and its enzyme system.

He has patented a mercury speciation diagnostic process to analyze human toxicity, founded the only clinical lab in the world offering mercury speciation analysis, and has designed cutting edge systems of nutraceuticals for detoxification and antioxidant protection, including advanced phospholipid delivery systems for both water- and fat-soluble compounds.

His Quicksilver Delivery Systems® nanoparticle technology increases the bioavailability of supplements and protocols leading to higher efficacy products.

Dr. Shade is regularly sought out to speak as an educator on the topics of mercury, environmental toxicities, neuroinflammation, immune dysregulation, and the human detoxification system in the United States and internationally. He has helped corporate executives, professional athletes, celebrities, children with autism, patients with chronic immune disorders and more. He strives to evolve the way the medical industry delivers care, and he is perpetually broadening the way the world understands health.


Our Quicksilver Delivery Systems® signature trademark sets our liposomal products apart from other companies to ensure an unsurpassed experience. The difference is literally clear; our products have a clarity that only can be achieved with liposomes that are small enough to pass between cells and enter the bloodstream after ingestion, allowing for optimal bioavailability. Our liposomes begin absorbing (and working) as soon as they hit the mouth.

Built on a foundation of quality


As a cGMP-certified facility we ensure that our products are designed, monitored, and controlled at every stage of the manufacturing process according to FDA guidelines.


All our products are created onsite in our Colorado facility ensuring that each product features the same nanoparticle technologies that produce unsurpassed bioavailability.


All batches we produce undergo rigorous in-house and third-party testing to ensure that the safety, quality, and potency of our products uphold our company standards.



I believe that natural, radiant, and robust health is our birthright.

Of course, good nutrition is essential for this, but in today’s toxic, depleted, and stress-filled world, it’s hard to get enough support from food alone. Supplementation seems an obvious solution, but despite the claims, many supplements on the market fail to deliver on their promise. That’s why I founded Quicksilver Scientific.

It all started with my quest to solve my own health problem of mercury toxicity. I needed a way to increase absorption (bioavailability) of certain nutrients – in my case, glutathione. Typical delivery methods of glutathione rendered it ineffective as it was easily broken down in the GI tract. In looking for a way to bypass this issue, I came upon a promising delivery form – the liposome.

Unfortunately, the quality of existing liposomal products was low and variable. So, I had to make them myself. After months of trials and obsession, I figured out the core principals and chemistry needed for nutraceutical liposomes, which evolved into our flagship product, Liposomal Glutathione. It continues to be widely recognized as the gold standard for all liposomal glutathione products on the market today.

Our delivery technology, also known as Quicksilver Delivery Systems®, is what sets us apart and supports the bioavailability of many difficult-to-absorb ingredients. But it isn’t the only thing. We also make it our passion to develop ingredient decks for complex targeted formulations, and we have incorporated many of these products into highly sophisticated detoxification and cardiometabolic protocols that have been adopted and praised by healthcare practitioners worldwide.* And as Quicksilver’s technology continues to evolve, taking us into the arenas of immune health, longevity and hormones, there seems to be no end to what can be imagined and formulated.

It is my vision to continue pushing the supplementation innovation-boundaries to bring you the highest quality, efficacious products possible for human optimization.
