Supreme Pharmatech had agreed to develop new line of products based on nano processed hemp oil for the commercial brand “Herboloid” and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The new line of products will be a combination of active botanicals with hemp oil.
Herboloid is an international supplement company that has been incorporated in Thailand for more than 2 years , manufacturing more than 50 products currently. The biggest market outside of South East Asia is the United States.
Mrs. Milint Wintrasiri, Chief Executive Officer of Supreme Pharmatech, said that the R&D Department of Supreme Pharmatech has successfully tested green methods of hemp oil nanoencapsulation without the usage of harmful solvents. The new method of hemp oil nanoencapsulation is based on the principles of patented technology invented by Professor M.R.Mozafari, which is called the Mozafari Method. He is now the Head of the R&D Department at Supreme Pharmatech.
Accordingly to Professor M.R.Mozafari, other methods of nanoencapsulation of oils are performed with the usage of solvents, which are considered as harmful and environmentally unfriendly. The new method of nano encapsulation of hemp oil by Supreme Pharmatech will be performed without usage of harmful or toxic solvents and can be characterized as a “Green Technology”.
Scientific studies suggest that hemp oil is able to help certain health issues, such as inflammation, skin conditions, mental, neurological and cardiovascular diseases. This is primarily due to the high content of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is a very unique oil, as it contains omega-6 and omega-3 in the most optimal 3:1 ratio. Moreover, hemp seed oil contains SDA (stearidonic acid) – the superior form of omega-3, which converts to EPA in the body more efficiently than EPA from fish oil. In addition, hemp seed oil is also a great source of omega-9, which is absent in fish oil.
Accordingly to data published by Nutraingredients-Asia, hemp seed oil contains highest amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids, 62% more than in flax seeds, 96% more than in chia seeds and 104% more than in fish oil. Hemp seed oil also contains vitamins A, E, D3, phytosterols and great amount of Magnesium. Hemp seed oil is considered by many nutritionists as a good alternative to a fish oil.
Incorporation of liposomal botanicals or liposomal vitamins into hemp seed oil may bring additional benefits. “Herboloid” brand has intentions to build international sales network, which will operate on several continents. The brand representative stated, that accordingly to data published in “Industrial Hemp – Global Market Outlook (2018-2027)”, the hemp market will show 32% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) and reach USD 42 Billion by the year 2027.
Companies with advanced processing techniques will greatly benefit from such growth. New solvent-less green nanoencapsulation methods will not only maximize the nutritional value of hemp oil and the incorporation with other ingredients, but will also increase the commercial value of the final product and widen its application.
