There are many different types of vitamin and supplement delivery systems out there. Some of the common ones include tablets, capsules, powders, and chewables. There are also significantly better ways of getting the nutrients to where they need to be with a higher percentage of utilization and less degradation. These include suppositories, liquids, and various lipid delivery systems. The one we will highlight today is called VESIsorb.
What is VESIsorb?
VESIsorb is a patented, enhanced nutrient delivery system that was developed by the Swiss company Vesifact and manufactured in a closed loop sterile production facility. Fat-soluble items or those with poor water solubility need a special form of delivery. Our body’s natural process uses a colloidal system that allows the nutrient to reach the intestinal tract where it can be more readily absorbed. VESIsorb consists of an oil core encapsulated by emulsifiers. It uses an oil core instead of a water core like other liposomal delivery systems. Basically, this means that the bioactive ingredient is surrounded by lipids which protect it until it reaches the intestines. Click on the image to see a larger visual representation. The peer-reviewed journal, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, published a study that indicates a substantially higher absorption rate compared to the typical delivery system.
This delivery system offers many benefits including:
- Mimics the body’s natural absorption process
- Enhanced absorption
- Allows for extended release of nutrients
- Protection of ingredients from degradation in the stomach
- Reduction of gastrointestinal side affects
- Less or smaller pills required to achieve same result
