HydroParticle Technology for Increasing Solubility
[INQ. NO. 2307C04] Curcumin is a natural ingredient extracted from turmeric rhizome. Its health benefits such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer have been proven by numerous scientific researches. And it is known that curcumin promotes healthy liver and brain function. But curcumin’s poor solubility limits its benefits and makes its application very difficult.
HydroCurcumin™ enables solution-like dispersion of curcumin so that it can be used for various products with better bioavailability.
Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid, which is a component of the human cell membrane. It is known to play an important role in the activation of several key signaling pathways in the brain. There are researches that show phosphatidylserine may reduce the cognitive impairment of elderly people.
Phosphatidylserine is considered a GRAS material and can be used in various food categories such as dairy products, nutritional bars, and fruit-flavored drinks. But due to its poor water solubility, its application has been very limited.
HydroPS™ is a solubilized phosphatidylserine product generated by the HydroParticle™ technology. It is easily dispersible in water, so it can be conveniently used for various types of foods including beverages with the extra benefit of enhanced bioavailability.
Bio-Synectics is a company specialized in the technology of nanoparticles. Since founded in 2004, it has been focusing its efforts to develop technologies that can be used to make nanoparticles of poorly soluble ingredients.
As poor solubility is a major challenge in the development of new drug products, Bio-Synectics’s technologies provide powerful drug delivery system solutions for pharmaceutical companies. It has built a GMP facility successfully to manufacture nanoproducts and also registered the patents of its platform technologies worldwide. It hopes nanoparticulation technologies to be also used as strategic tools in the life cycle management of marketed drug products.
The poor solubility problem of active ingredients also exists in the functional foods and cosmetics sectors. It targets to develop and provide value-added ingredients with the advantage of overcoming poor solubility. It is providing HydroParticle series branded ingredients to be used by its customers to make more bioavailable and consumer-friendly nutraceutical or cosmetic products.
