Nutrabio recently released a brand new product to the market called Upsorb. Upsorb has a simple formula with only two ingredients: Astragin and Bioperine. You may have seen these two ingredients before added to other supplements such as pre workouts, fat burners and amino acids. Why are they there? What do they do? Below we will attempt to explain these two ingredients and why Upsorb is a necessity for those who want to get the most out of there supplements.
What is Bioperine?
Bioperine is an extract from black pepper known as piperine. In real world terms, Bioperine is a patented form of piperine that has many clinical studies to back up their claimes. Bioperine has been shown to enhance the absorption of many nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids.
Bioperine has been shown to increase the absorption of the following:
Herbal Extracts: Curcuma longa, Boswellia serrata, Withania somnifera, Ginkgo biloba and Capsicum annuum
Vitamins: Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Niacinamide, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic acid and Vitamin C Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E and Vitamin K
Anitoxidants: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lycopene, lutein/zeaxanthin, pine bark bioflavonoids complex, germanium, selenium and zinc
Amino Acids: Lysine, isoleucine, leucine, threonine, valine, tryptophan, phenylalanine, and methionine
Minerals: Calcium, iron, zinc, vanadium, selenium, chromium, iodine, potassium, manganese, copper and magnesium
So what this means, if you are taking any of the above, taking in the clinical dose of Bioperine will increase the bioavailability of said supplements.
What is Astragin?
AstraGin, is a patented complex of Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus. Like bioperine, AstraGin supports increased absorption of a wide range of nutrients from amino acids, to omega-3s, to creatine, to even CBD. In addition, Astragin Promotes healthy gut lining and tight junction functioning, ultimately leading to associated effects like reduced inflammation in the intestinal lining.
The great thing about these two ingredients is they are both completely safe and have no adverse side effects in healthy human beings. Nutrabio's Upsorb has both of these ingredients in the proper doses to give you the most out of the supplements you are already taking.
