Suspension Gel Technology
Do people actually consume the nutrients that will improve their health?Everyone starts with good intentions. A few pills here, a glass of juice there. But before long, pillsget bothersome and glass bottles are less than portable. How many times have we asked ourselves, “Now, whydidn’t I think of that?” So often, a very simple idea goes unnoticed as we continue doing things the sameold way, year after year. Nutritional supplements are no different. For most of the last century,nutritional supplements—primarily available in pill and tablet form—have gained popularity. With theavailability of each new supplement, we have been left with the same alternative: swallow one more pill.
What if we didn’t have to choke down another tablet? What if there was another option? What if somebody decided to deliver nutrients in a different form?
Good news! There’s a fresh new way to consume nutritional supplements, a new technology known as Gelceuticals™. This delivery mechanism isn’t just new, it’s better—it will revolutionize the way we take nutritional supplements and substantially increase the number of individuals who benefit from nutritional supplementation.
Through suspension gel technology, our daily nutrients can be taken anywhere, quickly and easily. Think about it: no glasses, no super-sized pills, no waterlogged juices, no ineffective sprays and creams—justpure, concentrated nutrients in an easy to take, readily absorbed, taste bud-busting gel. Entirelyoriginal, the Gelceutical market represents an untapped arena of wellness. And the landmark realization of the industry is GelPlus. GelPlus stands at the head of a supplement revolution—incredible convenience, incredible flavor.
Why is gel technology so much better?
Two very important factors influence the efficacy of nutritional supplements:
1) the proper timing of ingestion, and
2) the availability of the nutrients. Because of these factors, gel technology represents a significant advance in the method of delivery for vitamins, minerals and other important food supplements. Gel suspension drastically facilitates ingestion of food supplements, increasing compliance with nutritional regimens that would otherwise go unheeded. It provides extreme convenience and allows for optimal timing of ingestion, thus maximizing nutritional efficacy. And, it optimizes the availability of the nutrients that are suspended in gel form in order to maximize their physiologic effects.
At present, many exceptional nutritional products are available in solid pill and capsule form. Unfortunately, a significant portion of our population has difficulty ingesting pills and capsules. This segment, therefore, is unable to realize the benefits of these nutritional supplements.
For some individuals—particularly in the elderly population—anatomical or neuromuscular difficulties prevent them from swallowing large pills or capsules. For others, the difficulty is merely a psychological phenomenon that deters the ingestion of large solid objects. Whatever the reason, these individuals miss out on the significant health benefits of nutritional supplementation.
In contrast to their pill and capsule counterparts, gel formulations are typically moist, smooth, flavorful and easy to swallow. By suspending nutrients in a gel, individuals with swallowing difficulties have a higher likelihood of easily ingesting nutritional supplements. Moreover, those with psychological issues related to pills and capsules will likewise be more inclined to consume gel supplements.
Convenience and Timing
Nutritional supplements are most effective when ingested according to the optimal timing guidelines for each individual supplement. Some nutrients are better absorbed when taken with meals. Others are best when consumed at pre-determined intervals prior to food ingestion in order to maximize the effect of their active ingredients, or to avoid conflicting uptake mechanisms with other food particles.
Gel supplements are packaged in convenient gel packs that are highly portable, allowing availability at the appropriate time—no matter when it is.
In addition, the gel can often be ingested without water, therefore facilitating optimal timing, even in extreme and unusual circumstances. By encouraging and allowing the correct timing and ingestion of food supplements, gel technology
enhances the absorption and utilization of each nutrient.
The availability of the nutrients in food supplements is of paramount importance. If nutrients are not available for uptake in the gastrointestinal tract, they are essentially useless.
Some tablets and capsules have been well designed and tested to dissolve in the stomach and are extremely bioavailable. Not all pills and capsules, however, are created equal. Poorly manufactured supplements in pill or capsule form are not consistently digested and absorbed. Some are compressed at extremely high pressures during manufacturing and are not well designed for optimal dissolution in the stomach. With the introduction of gel technology, all nutrients remain in their natural state, optimizing availability, and increasing the absorption and digestion of essential vitamins and minerals.
In a nutshell, Gelceuticals™ will change the way we take nutritional supplements. By increasing the ease-of-use, optimizing timing and enhancing absorption, gel technology widens the scope of supplementation™allowing a wider audience to benefit from dietary and nutritional improvements.
