Whether it is increased energy, improved bone density or relief from cold and flu, Superior Nutrient Absorption helps ensure you absorb the nutrients you need for improved health.
Oxygen and moisture are known to cause destruction to the active ingredients in supplements. The healthy oils act as a barrier and protect the nutrients from oxygen and moisture.
Fats pass through virtually anywhere in the intestinal tract, unlike non-fat substances that require specific receptor sites. By coating the active ingredients in healthy oils we’re creating a greater opportunity for absorption.
Tablets are often difficult to swallow and digest, and sometimes leave an unpleasant taste. Our products made with Superior Nutrient Absorption are easy to swallow, easy to digest and free of unpleasant odour or taste.
Results you can feel
The result is a wide range of powerful nutrients that are easily absorbed to give you the strength and energy you need.
The oil in your favourite salad dressing does more than add flavour. It also helps your body absorb the salad’s nutrients. That’s because oil is easily absorbed by the cell membranes in your body. In fact, a 2004 study found that substantially greater absorption of carotenoids, your body’s main source of vitamin A, was observed when salads were consumed with full-fat salad dressings rather than with fat-free dressings.
In another example, a study by Cui et al (2009) showed that when a particle of curcumin is encapsulated in a micro emulsion droplet, the body absorbs more than 95% in 24 hours. Without oils the body is only able to absorb slightly less than 20%.
