Last month, we launched a vitamin D product from the natural supplement company GoCLN.
Many nutrients, such as vitamin D, only need to be taken in small amounts, and it is almost impossible to take only the pure substance.
First of all, the problem arises as to how to divide only that small amount into single-dose portions. It's a microgram amount, so if you try to remove it with ear picks, you might end up ingesting tens or even hundreds of times more. Of course, we must also consider the possibility of overdosing and the resulting damage.
In the first place, such substances are expensive, so we cannot deliver them in such dosage forms.
Therefore, it is necessary to disperse or dilute the target substance in some way. This process is used not only to adjust the required amount and concentration of the target substance, but also to increase efficiency in the manufacturing process.
Emphasizing efficiency may seem business-like, but it is also an extremely important viewpoint from a technological perspective, as some materials exhibit material properties that are extremely difficult to handle.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin to begin with, so unless you use it by dissolving it in an oil-like substance, you first need to make it into powder form. (By the way, we use ingredients from DSM's trusted brand "QD" for vitamin D.)
However, the content is still quite high, so in order to pack it into capsules like GoCLN, it is necessary to further dilute it.
This time, we worked with a manufacturing factory and went through a lot of trial and error. The final choice was roasted brown rice powder.
Supplements that utilize this brown rice powder are becoming more and more popular among natural supplements in Europe and America. We have further refined domestic roasted brown rice powder to make it suitable for supplement production.
As a result, we are now able to deliver hard capsule supplements that contain plenty of vitamin D, even though they are mainly roasted brown rice powder.
Vitamin D is a vitamin that is often associated with the absorption of minerals, especially calcium, and bone health. It is also well known that it is biosynthesized in the skin when exposed to ultraviolet rays in the body, so it is a substance that you should actively consume when there is a lack of sunlight.
When it comes to vitamin D, I always remember Manel, a Spaniard who worked for a company in Scandinavia. Naturally, summers are short in that area due to its high latitude, but since he was from Southern Europe and lived and worked there for many years, he probably didn't get enough sunlight, so he always took vitamin D.
Summer is finally in full swing, and I'm sure many people are enjoying it, but I'm also seeing a lot of news that makes me feel like it's necessary to stay home. I hope I can make good use of it in times like these.
