It is only in recent centuries that the choice delivery formats for botanicals were not very simple: eating the plants, maybe a crude version of a compress—or possibly a tea. Taking something good and making it better is an example of innovation and it is all about understanding ingredients and proper delivery methods explains Alkemist Labs.
The botanical industry has developed over 60,000 years from the time of Paleolithic Hunter-Gatherers through to today, where “delivery methods” of supplements is a quickly growing area within the dietary supplement industry alongside branded novel ingredients.
According to Aklemist Labs:
Success for Supplements Lies in the Delivery
Branded novel ingredients now incorporate these new delivery methods by giving us innovative amalgamations of molecules as old as caffeine from green tea combined with chemicals from berries to create a highly absorbable new version of caffeine. This celebration of pharmacognosy is said to allow for significantly less caffeine use without decreased effect. What an innovation…
Taking something good and making it better is an example of innovation. When selling green tea products for its caffeine content isn’t enough, one step is to look into alternative or novel delivery methods. This, I believe is the moment when natural products mature into nutraceuticals.
