Wellness, functional medicine and nutrition used to be seen as separate entities to the aesthetics industry, but in recent years more and more clinics have realised the power of harnessing these powerful modalities as a way to enhance their results and support their patients from the inside out.
By addressing what’s going on internally simultaneously, practitioners can achieve optimal outcomes for our patients.
HINNAO is not just any other supplement. The range has been in development since 2013 with one goal in mind – to increase healthspan and lifespan using biotechnology with clinically proven bioavailability.
Launched into the UK and Europe just this year, after cornering the US market with its patented delivery mechanism, HINNAO technology has superior bioavailability to tablets, giving instant absorption in just 90 seconds. How? By using uniformed high-stability lipid particles, which are placed under the tongue in the form of liquid drops and absorb straight into the bloodstream via the mucous membrane in the mouth
Not all liposomes are created equally
HINNAO’s liposome process suspends the product into a phospholipid in an encapsulation of (MCT oil, sweet almond) base. The suspension ensures that the product cannot “fall out” of the phospholipid and degrade, making its liposomes very stable. The company also uses very high shear, subjecting the particles up to 40,000 psi. This high shear reduces the particle size and encapsulates the particles in uniformly dispersed liposomes. The narrow particle size distribution of the liposomes ensures uniform size and high bioavailability.
Gold standard testing
HINNAO Technology tests all products using independent third-party certified laboratories to verify the percentage (%) of drug permeation at specific time intervals.
Trials demonstrating the efficacy of these products were conducted using
vertical type diffusion cell (Franz type), which is considered the gold standard for testing drug permeation through mucosal membrane and skin.
The range contains high stability liposomal Glutathione, Resveratrol, Vitamin D + K2, Methyl B12, and Turmeric Curcumin, offering a natural daily dose of the essential nutrients and antioxidants.
The brand hinnao.com uses pharmaceutical-grade ingredients for all the products they manufacture and all products are available gluten-free, corn-and-sugar-free, non-GMO, vegan-friendly, and dairy-free.
One of the hero products is Glutathione, known as the “Fountain of Youth”. A master antioxidant, it is strongly anti-ageing and helps increase collagen production and synthesis, brighten and tighten skin, detoxify and helps innate immune cells do their jobs effectively. It also helps recycle vitamins C and other primary antioxidants which helps with the healing and recovery of damaged tissues and reduces oxidative stress.
Tania Malan, Clinical Director, Uniskin said: "Glutathione has so many favourable properties that impact patients' skin and wellbeing. It is not only a master antioxidant and chelator of metals. It is also crucial to the immune system AND inhibits tyrosinase. Therefore, it protects the body against oxidative stress and lightens the skin while providing immunity to the body. Low levels of Glutathione are associated with other pathogenesis, such as autoimmune and inflammatory dermatoses, which include psoriasis, vitiligo, alopecia, and acne vulgaris. Glutathione, unfortunately, has low bioavailability in the body, and the preferred method of supplementation used to be through IV. HINNAO has now developed a superior supplementation with a delivery mechanism that equals an infusion. It is less invasive and much more cost-effective for patients and clinics, especially those who do not provide infusions.
