Lexaria (NASDAQ: LEXX) is a global innovator in drug delivery platforms. “The company’s patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology enhances the performance of multiple categories of fat-soluble active molecules and drugs available in various formats, including oral ingestible, oral buccal/sublingual and topical products. According to Lexaria, its technology ‘is best thought of as an additional layer that improves the effectiveness of existing or planned new products for companies that offer consumer supplements, prescription and non-prescription-based drugs and nicotine products,’” a recent article reads. “When analyzed in terms of numbers, the improvements are impressive. Having conducted both in vitro and in vivo studies, Lexaria has established that DehydraTECH increases intestinal bioabsorption of certain bioactive compounds by as much as 27 times. Furthermore, given the technology increases the quantity of each active ingredient delivered to the blood plasma and brain, it reduces the need for high doses, ultimately contributing to lower overall drug costs, as lower doses can still achieve the same or even better results. In addition, the technology works rapidly, with the DehydraTECH formulations’ effects becoming prominent in as little as 1.5 minutes post-administration. Other benefits include masked taste and smell of the active molecules, which has the intended effect of helping manufacturers create low-sugar products with fewer calories and avoid using artificial sweeteners.”
