PhytoSpherix™ is also very effective at scattering harmful light such as UV, and this property can be used as the basis for stabilizing light sensitive materials such as vitamins, colours and flavors (Fig. 1). It is also effective in protecting such ingredients from thermal degradation.
Many bioactive compounds have poor solubility in water and therefore the biological activity, or bioavailability, of many of nutraceuticals (health promoting food supplements) is limited. We have shown that PhytoSpherix™ is very effective in enhancing the solubility of many active ingredients.
