What is Micellization
The term micellize describes the process that changes the molecular structure of certain compounds (curcumin and other vitamins for instance) so that the body can more easily absorb them.
Why Micellize Curcumin
The absorption of curcumin takes place between the microvilli, finger like projections, and the intestine wall.
The gaps are about 50 nanometres wide which makes curcumin in its natural state too large to pass through.
How does it work
Micelles allow non-soluble liquid products to mix in the digestive system and travel through the small intestine where they can be absorbed into the blood plasma. These micelles are below 30 nanometres in size. (A human hair is 100,000 nanometres in diameter)
