Nature’s Little Secret
PhytoSpherix® is chemically identical to glycogen. Glycogen is a natural polysaccharide (sugar) that you already have in your body. Your body naturally stores glycogen as a source of energy (as do many other animals and plants).
PhytoSpherix® is a platform technology, boasting many valuable properties and performance characteristics that can be leveraged across a wide variety of personal care applications.
