As the author of four books and an expert on organic chemistry and botanical medicine, Tracy Gibbs is an expert on functional nutrition. He’s the inventor of a patented enzyme delivery system, taught at schools and universities throughout the world, and holds an honorary doctorate degree in Pharmacognosy, and has helped to formulate nutritional products for several dozen companies.
He’s also the Scientific Advisor for Vasayo, a U.S. company acknowledged as one of the world’s Top 50 Healthcare Companies by the International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare (IFAH, 2019).
Vasayo is a global provider of nutritional and topical products that deliver support directly into the body’s cells for dramatically increased bioavailability and better results.
But Gibbs offers up a fairly simple way for consumers to determine how much of their nutritional supplements is being absorbed: When you take your vitamins or supplements, pay close attention to your next visit to the restroom. Most likely, you’ll notice your urine is bright yellow. If it is, it’s a sure signal that your body was unable to absorb the majority of the supplement you’re ingesting. For your good intentions and even the quality of the nutritional products you purchase, the biggest part of the benefits you’re seeking for are literally being poured down the drain.
This is where advanced delivery methods such asliposomal technology comes in. This approach to supplement and nutrient delivery has been extensively researched and has been an important part of the pharmaceutical industry for years. With effective implementation, however, the technology is highly applicable to nutritional supplementation as well.
Through Vasayo’s liposomal technology, supplements are delivered by encapsulating an active vitamin or plant-based nutrient within a liposomal (fat-based) “bubble” that carries it through the harsh environment of digestion or the skin’s barrier and releases it within the cells that require specific support.
In the pharmaceutical industry, the liposomes are typically petroleum based or may contain a high level of preservatives to keep them stable.
Vasayo’s formulations are all natural.
The results of this approach, according to Gibbs, are the ability to make nutritional supplementation much more bioavailable to the body’s physiology. When more of the supplement is absorbed, the effectiveness is greater. People feel the difference and supplementation produces better results.
“It’s a way for nature and science to fully align,” he concludes.
For U.S. consumers, the concept of advanced delivery technology underscores the fact that all supplements are not equal. It is vital to study and understand every aspect of the products we consume and purchase to ensure they provide the efficacy and safety we need.
