Nulixir develops, manufactures, and licenses intellectual property for smart nanocarriers that enhance the effectiveness of functional ingredients, such as vitamins and minerals, cannabis derivatives, energy stimulants, nootropics (cognitive enhancers), probiotics, protein, and more.
Nanovesicle technology protects functional ingredients from premature degradation and interaction with physiological environments, while significantly reducing the amount of raw material needed for an effective dose, by increasing the bioavailability of the functional ingredients. Engineered to tune functional ingredient performance before consumption and after, nanovesicles provide a continuous and steady supply of desired ingredients, as opposed to quick spikes and sharp drops in nutrient concentrations in the bloodstream. Control of where encapsulated functional ingredients are released in the digestive tract can avert or reduce potential side effects, such as structural damage. The unique, patented, and customizable nanovesicle structures enable new possibilities for release profiles and applications, solving issues associated with uncontrolled release kinetics, product stability, shelf-life longevity, and unpleasant flavors, all while exclusively using widely-accepted ingredients that are designated by the FDA as GRAS (generally regarded as safe).
Available as either solid powders or liquid concentrate formats, Nulixir’s line of products are non-GMO, vegan, kosher, organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, and allergen-free.
