Supercritical Fluid Extraction
Advanced Analytical Methods
NanotechnologyNext Generation NanotechnologySo Young America’s Nanotechnology medical developments over the coming years will have a wide variety of uses and could potentially save a great number of lives. Nanotechnology is already moving from being used in passive structures to active structures, through more targeted drug therapies or “smart drugs.” These new drug therapies have already been shown to cause fewer side effects and be more effective than traditional therapies. In the future, nanotechnology will also aid in the formation of molecular systems that may be strikingly similar to living systems. These molecular structures could be the basis for the regeneration or replacement of body parts that are currently lost to infection, accident, or disease. These predictions for the future have great significance not only in encouraging nanotechnology research and development but also in determining a means of oversight. The number ofproducts approaching the FDA approval and review process is likely to grow as time moves forward and as new nanotechnology medical applications are developed.
Supercritical Fluid ExtractionThe focus of our work is the extraction of the active and helpful ingredients in herbal formulas without damage. The extraction method allows these ingredients to provide full and healthful potency to our clients. We use a method called Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE). This process performed by a supercritical fluid extractor machine, which operates at a very high pressure but low temperature, to precisely extract specific necessary active ingredients and gently remove impurities without damage. Our team of technologists has refined this process to a new level. We call this new level of processing “L9-SFE” (patent pending), a proprietary proven extraction process. Additionally, with the help of nanotechnology, the human absorption rate is increased greatly. Our advancements in plant fluid extraction allow us to bring these benefits directly to our products and to our clients. With L9-SFE, we are creating valuable therapeutics, providing life-improving alternatives and enhancing the quality of life.
Stem CellSo Young America’s scientists and researchers are interested in stem cells for several reasons. Although stem cells do not serve any one function, many have the capacity to serve any function after they are instructed to specialize. Every cell in the body, for example, is derived from first few stem cells formed in the early stages of embryological development. Therefore, stem cells extracted from embryos can be induced to become any desired cell type. This property makes stem cells powerful enough to regenerate damaged tissue under the right conditions. Tissue regeneration is probably the most important possible application of stem cell research. Currently, organs must be donated and transplanted, but the demand for organs far exceeds supply. Stem cells could potentially be used to grow a particular type of tissue or organ if directed to differentiate in a certain way. Stem cells that lie just beneath the skin, for example, have been used to engineer new skin tissue that can be grafted on to burn victims. Additionally, replacement cells and tissues may be used to treat brain disease such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's by replenishing damaged tissue, bringing back the specialized brain cells that keep unneeded muscles from moving. Embryonic stem cells have recently been directed to differentiate into these types of cells, and so treatments are promising.
Advanced Analytical MethodsThe development of the pharmaceuticals brought a revolution in human health. These pharmaceuticals would serve their intent only if they are free from impurities and are administered in an appropriate amount. To make food or drugs serve their purpose various chemical and instrumental methods were developed at regular intervals which are involved in the estimation of drugs. These pharmaceuticals may develop impurities at various stages of their development, transportation and storage which makes the pharmaceutical risky to be administered thus they must be detected and quantitated. For this So Young America’s advanced analytical instrumentation and methods play an important role in assessing the quality of the drugs. Our variety of analytical techniques such as titrimetric, chromatographic, spectroscopic, electrophoretic, and electrochemical and their corresponding methods that have been applied in the field of pharmaceutical research, the analytical investigation of bulk drug materials, intermediates, drug products, drug formulations, impurities and degradation products, and biological samples containing the drugs and their metabolites is very important. From the commencement of official pharmaceutical analysis, analytical assay methods were included in the compendial monographs with the aim to characterize the quality of bulk drug materials by setting limits of their active ingredient content.
Botanical DiscoveriesThe use of botanicals is well rooted in medical practice. Ancient doctors methodically collected information about herbs and developed well-defined pharmacopoeias to treat a variety of ailments. More than a quarter of all drugs used today contain active ingredients derived from those same ancient plants. It's estimated that nearly 80 percent of the world's population use herbs for some aspect of primary health care. In the United States, more than 1,500 botanicals are sold as dietary supplements; top-selling herbs include echinacea, garlic, goldenseal, ginseng, ginkgo, saw palmetto, aloe, ephedra, Siberian ginseng, and cranberry. Clinical studies on a handful of herbs are underway, but to help you understand the benefits and risks, we've compiled a comprehensive guide to herbs, including potential uses, side effects, and precautions. In no time you will learn how to use herbs to treat some common health conditions like allergies, indigestion, and even anxiety.
