Microtransporters

Microtransporters

The vitamins and minerals are packed during their processing into small beads, the so-called micro-transporters. This allows the easy mixture of different amounts of individual microtransporter and their micro-nutrients. For some people, the final mixture contains a higher proportion of vitamin C-containing micro- transporters, for others a higher proportion of calcium-containing micro- transporters. Thus, any recipe can be quickly and accurately created through a targeted micronutrient blend.

In addition, the micro-nutrients are better protected against oxygen by their packaging in the hard micro-transporters and stay much longer stable compared to dissolved micronutrients.

Optimized absorption into the blood stream

Proper absorption of micronutrients is a complex issue, since many of the substances
can inhibit each other’s absorption. Therefore, it is of great importance where and at
what speed the micronutrients are released in the intestine.

Standard micronutrients:
Mutual uptake inhibition

Absorption blocking of certain micronutrients

Certain micronutrients are absorbed through
the same processes/channels in the body. A
good example of this is calcium and zinc. If a
calcium/zinc powder mixture is taken using a
gelatin capsule, both components will be
released in the intestine. The intestinal
mucosa then starts to absorb calcium, which
is typically administered with a significantly
higher dose. Calcium uses certain uptake
channels, which are limited in number. Zinc,
which should also be absorbed via these
channels, is blocked by the amount of calcium
and in many cases it will mostly remain in the
intestines until it is excreted. For this reason,
certain micronutrients cannot be
administered together in the same form.
Thus, it’s important to be mindful of
micronutrients in the form of effervescent
tablets or gelatin capsules that contain, for
example, mixtures of calcium and zinc.

absorption properties

Physically separated distribution for better absorption

The micro-transporters are designed so that
mutually blocking substances are not
contained within the same pellets. This way
calcium is released in one ocation in the
intestine and zinc is released in another
location. Thsi way each of these
micronutrients are released at a distance
from one another and uptake inhibition is
reduced to a minimum. Due to the slow
release of micronutrients, the uptake
channels are not heavily used, as the
nutrients are only released at a slow and
steady rate.

Optimized uptake of all nutrients

It is also known that certain micronutrients can increase each others absorption. This is why
they are released together from the same micro-transporter, so that absorption of
micronutrients is increased; this is the case for vitamin D and calcium.

Certain fat-soluble vitamins such as Vitamin E need fat carriers in order to be absorbed into the
body. For this reason, it is often recommended to take Vitamin E preparations with a fatcontaining meal. Here, the Vitamin E can be dissolved in dietary fat and absorbed into the
body. The micro transporters can store the Vitamin E for hours, until they come into contact
with fat, which means that the vitamin can then be absorbed. Before a meal it is absorbed to a
lesser extent by the combination with the components Omega 3-fatty acids or phytosterols.

Proper care throughout the
day

The wrong dosage can quickly indicate that the body is not sufficiently supplied with
micronutrients. Therefore, the micronutrient supplements must ensure that the
correct micronutrients are released into the body at the correct time.

Standard vitamins:
To quickly metabolized by the body

Most micronutrient preparations
immediately dissolve in water and are
therefore immediately released in the
intestine and in the body, and taken up in the
bloodstream. This has some important
disadvantages: Vitamin C is rapidly removed
from the body; with a half-life of 30 minutes,
the body loses half of the total Vitamin C
from blood in every half hour. From the
typical daily amount of 80 mg of Vitamin C,
only about 5 mg are left after 2 hours. After
4h, there are less than 1 mg and thus under
the effective limit.

NutriMe Complete – Permanent
supply

Since the body breaks down Vitamin C very
fast, it is necessary to supply the body
continuously with small amounts of Vitamin
C. The micro-transporters were designed so
that they slowly release the vitamins and
minerals to the body, throughout the day.
This way, the body is constantly supplied
with the optimal dose of Vitamin C
thoughout the day.
