Enhancing bioavailability through nature’s example

By Kelly C. Heim, Ph.D.

Abstract
Every cell in the body is an organized coalescence of aqueous and lipid components. Thus, to sustain physiological function and overall health, the body requires both water- and fat- soluble nutrients. While the digestive tract has evolved ways to absorb both types, water solubility offers a salient advantage. As the intestinal environment is aqueous, or watery, these compounds can readily dissolve and disperse, contacting a large area of epithelial surface in the intestine. Maximal surface contact facilitates optimal absorption across the epithelium.
