In very simple terms, we take samples of existing products (foods, liquids, vitamins, powders, fertilizers, detergents, pesticides, etc.) and break them down to nanosized versions of themselves. The effectiveness of the resulting nanoformula is usually 100-200x their normal bioavailability while the core formula remains the same.

In pharmacology, bioavailability is a subcategory of absorption and is the fraction (%) of an administered nutrient that reaches the system.

By definition, when a nutrient is administered intravenously to the human body, its bioavailability is 100%. However, when administered via routes other than intravenous, its bioavailability is generally lower than that of intravenous due to intestinal endothelium absorption and first-pass metabolism. And that applies to not just the human body. It’s strikingly similar in plants and animals.

So, the question is, how do you (or a plant/animal) absorb all the nutrients your body needs every day if you don’t want to have an IV hooked up to your arm all day?

The answer: Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology involves manipulation of materials on an atomic or molecular scale. It is an emerging technology that has the potential to be used across the spectrum of FDA-regulated products, including animal food.

Available scientific evidence indicates that materials manipulated on the nanoscale level through the use of nanotechnology may result in the materials possessing novel physicochemical properties. The physical characteristics of a particular nanomaterial, including increased surface area-to-volume ratio, morphology, surface features, and charge, can affect the biological behavior of the material.

In addition, materials manipulated on the nanoscale level through the use of nanotechnology affect the biodistribution, biocompatibility, or toxicity of the material.

For example, changing the particle size of a material will affect its absorption and transport in the body. Thus, the bioavailability of a nanomaterial animal food ingredient is significantly different from that seen or expected in a larger-scaled material with the same chemical composition, which alters the minimum amount of the animal food ingredient necessary to achieve the intended technical or nutritional effect.

Which is why we chose to become a lab that tests and creates the nano formulation for a variety of products, rather than just creating one nano formulation for a sports drink for instance (which we have done, by the way).
