Our Intelligent Complexed Ecdysterone is a more bioavailable form of Ecdysterone. What does that mean? Bioavailability determines how much of a supplement can be absorbed by the body to be used properly. There are many factors that impact bioavailability. For some compounds, their bioavailability is dramatically impacted by how water soluble they are. As Ecdysterone is a lipophilic compound with low solubility in water, it faces poor absorption issues in the gut. Absorption in the gastrointestinal tract is contingent on a molecules water-solubility.
Why is ours the most bioavailable? This is because on a molecular level we are able to encapsulate the Ecdysterone in a compound called Hydroxypropyl-β-Cyclodextrin which acts as a shell to increase water solubility and support enhanced bioavailability. Studies have shown over 100x enhanced solubility of Ecdysterone when complexed with cyclodextrins.
Many companies will claim that their product is complexed with Hydroxypropyl-β-Cyclodextrin. However, you cannot simply put Ecdysterone and Hydroxypropyl-β-Cyclodextrin into a capsule and call it "complexed". Preparing the supramolecular inclusion complex of Ecdysterone is a sophisticated, time intensive and expensive process. The literature supports a significant increase in water solubility and bioavailability when the Ecdysterone is complexed correctly and this is not accomplished by simply mixing the two ingredients together and shoving it into a capsule.
