Australian Health-Tech Company Cracks The Code To Reducing Inflammation Naturally With World First Technology

Jul 3, 2021

Australian Health-Tech Company Cracks The Code To Reducing Inflammation Naturally With World First Technology 2 July 2021 The global health implications of shrinking the Curcumin compound to hundreds of times smaller than a red blood cell are massive, as the turmeric derivative is already proven in peer reviewed studies to reduce inflammation. The company’s chemical-free nano technology innovation could see dramatic improvements in the treatment of inflammation associated conditions such as pain, immune deficiency, cancer, dementia, and diabetes. “Curcumin from Turmeric spice is the most researched nutraceutical of all time with over 10,000 human trial studies confirming its ability to treat inflammatory related conditions such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, dementia and pain,” said Phillip Ferguson, Nano Nutrients Co-Founder/CEO. “Its only setback however is that it’s not soluble in water and therefore the body can’t absorb it. Our nano botanical technology drastically increases bioavailability into the body. Confirming this is Dr Ramin Rohanizadeh, Lecturer in Pharmaceutics, Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Sydney. “Although Curcumin is effective in killing cancer cells, its low water solubility and inadequate bioavailability remain major limitations to its therapeutic application. Anti-cancer potency and cellular uptake is directly related to particle size, where Curcumin nano particles with the smallest size are the most potent.” Nano Nutrients set out to overcome the challenges of poor absorption into the body by developing a nano Curcumin ingredient they call “CleanCurcumin™” that is used in their Nano Curcumin product. This proprietary technology produces the world’s smallest chemically free manufactured Curcumin particle size at just 70nm, that’s also water soluble. And because it can dissolve into water, it can dissolve into you. “Our nano Curcumin is a world first by being manufactured using a process that is completely chemical and heat free and with a further benefit of also being water-soluble,” said Dan Shulz, Nano Nutrients Chief Science Officer. “Over the past 50 years the global dietary supplements market has become enormous, but it has drifted away from training health naturally to an industry mostly full of synthetic ingredients and cheap shortcuts causing products to become less effective. The chemical free nano processing of botanical compounds is something the company has spent years researching and developing in order to avoid the possibility of something called “tag along’ where some chemical compounds can remain. Rob Kleinig is a successful case study that has been using the company’s products for some time. The fly in fly out (FIFO) worker based in Adelaide has been able to stop taking various medications including anti-rejection drugs for his liver transplant. Rob used Nano Nutrient’s Nano Curcumin and Micro Mist D3 Vitamin D products to help keep his Immune System under control. The Nano Curcumin helped keep his blood sugar under control. The Micro Mist D3 helped him with his respiratory difficulties. Nano Nutrients believes its high technology health products will have a substantial impact in the soon to be USD 300 billion dollar plus global dietary supplements market. It will be launching in Australia in late September and then expanding globally from 2022 onwards. It also expects keen interest from Australian investors who are being given the opportunity to own shares in the company. The share offer will be managed by Birchal; Australia’s most reputable equity funding platform. While their nano Curcumin is one technology application the company has successfully developed, other innovations included a self-emulsifying CBDa Raw Hemp product as well as a odourless and tasteless nano Curcumin gel product for dogs and cats called “Nano Pet”. Phillip Ferguson the CEO said “We are bringing true innovation to the international CBD market with our Raw Hemp product, with a US and European release in 2022 and Australian distribution discussions currently underway. Our raw, 100% plant-based, self-emulsifying form of CBDa is hundreds of times more potent than the processed form in regular CBD products.” The next few years will see Nano Nutrients strengthen its base in Australia and South Africa, before moving into the US and European markets and releasing further product innovations. Money raised during its investment round will be used for rapid growth direct to consumer marketing systems, further intellectual property protection, inventory acquisition and release of the company’s full product range.
