We have heard of the famous idiom "big things come in small packages". This manifestation can be found in nanotechnology. A plethora of advancements have been made in technology and nanotechnology is one of it. Nanotechnology can have amazing health implications because the body can easily absorb nano-nutrients. 

Nanotechnology is being incorporated for every fiber of the human society, ranging from clothing to medicine. Many are not aware of the fact, that they would soon be able to consume nano- engineered food products as well as water. 

 

Functions 

Nano-engineered water, also known as hydrosomes have smaller molecules as compared to normal water. Their smaller sized molecules facilitate easier absorption of nutrients and water within the cells.

There are two functions of a hydrosome, which is a nano-level nutrient delivery mechanism. At the cellular level, maximum hydration is delivered by it. It also delivers nutrients, which can easily be absorbed and utilized by the body.

 

Benefits

When an energy drink is consumed, it takes about an hour or two for electrolytes to enter the body cells. Whereas, nano-engineered molecules could speed up the process, such that the body gets the essential nutrients.

Apart from quick delivery, nanoparticles could also enhance the real potential of the nutrients. Theoretically, faster nutrients' absorption would enable the body to carry out its functions more efficiently. 

This technology would help those who are stressed, feeling fatigued or having gastrointestinal problems. Since nanoparticles deliver nutrients much faster to the cells, such that the body absorbs them and leads to revitalization in the process.

 

Products 

Nanoparticles are not restricted to only energy drinks or water. They have been used in a plethora of health supplements, food products and cosmetics. 

For instance, titanium dioxide is used by food manufacturers to produce milk, curd, yogurt and other dairy products, which gives them a whiter colour. Nanoparticles are also present in other food products like pasta, chocolates, salad dressings, cereals and many more. 

 

Scope

More manufacturing companies are adopting nanotechnology to produce products made from nanoparticles. This would be beneficial for the people, as the body will be able to easily absorb nutrients and perform better.
