We call our nanospheres NanoBioSpheres. Given our proprietary manufacturing process, which takes their mean size down below 50 nm, they provide much-needed solubility for lipophilic compounds, such as resveratrol, and they are more readily taken up by our cells than are larger particles.* Also, they tend to be preferentially absorbed by types of tissue that are characterized by capillaries that are more permeable (leakier) than normal.* That allows the nanospheres to slip through tiny openings and gain access to the cells.* Called passive targeting, this is a property of all ordinary nanospheres.
Resveratrol is certainly the powerhouse of what nutritional supplements can offer . . . with a mind-boggling cornucopia of across-the-board, high-end benefits to improve health dramatically. Yet these remarkable benefits have been somewhat elusive owing to extremely limited bioavailability when resveratrol is taken orally. Not only has it been difficult to enhance its solubility and increase absorption—owing to acids and digestive enzymes in the stomach, intestines, and liver—but it has also been a challenge to inhibit resveratrol’s metabolism to other substances and sustain high plasma levels. Moreover, delivering them in adequate amounts to the most important tissue targets has been virtually unachievable. Until now.
Nanospheres are about to change all that, because they embrace and embody state-of-the-art nutrient-delivery technology that can defeat the pitfalls of the oral delivery route.
A product of nanotechnology, as the name implies, nanospheres are very small particles, measured in nanometers (nm), or billionths of a meter. These particles, with dimensions in the range from 1 to 1000 nm, are now burgeoning into the field of drug- and nutrient-delivery systems with diameters as small as 50 nm or even lower. The ones starting to show particularly great efficacy are made of natural lipids, in which lipophilic compounds, such as resveratrol and curcuminoids, can readily dissolve. Their purpose is to improve the bioavailability of such compounds by exploiting their own special size range and unique properties.
