Vitamins and nutritional supplements are a 13.4 billion-dollar-a-year business. Most of those pills are chewed or swallowed.Now they can be ‘vaped’.
These slim metal dispensers from Inhale Health of Beverly Hills Biotech Company release vaporized vitamins, caffeine or melatonin.The Inhale Health is about shifting the world to a new era of functional inhalation.We can build inhalable products around micronutrients and beneficial compounds.
The company claims pharmaceutical grade B vitamins in liquid form can be turned into a vapor that retains nutritional value and can be quickly absorbed by the body.
We contracted with third-party lab, S&N Labs out of Santa Ana, California and we had them conducted tests to prove that the liquid vitamins transition successfully into the aerosolized state.So what that means it that the compounds, the value-added molecules, vitamins, micronutrients etc were present in a liquid and they were also present in vapor state.
Pharmacist David Yashar sells the dispensers at his store and says the sleep inhaler which contains the hormone melatonin is the best seller.
We have a lot of patients that come in for jet-lag, they complained that melatonin causes a lot of headaches and grogginess the next day. One thing that we realize with this product with the melatonin product, in particular,is that it doesn’t cause those side effects and it works much quicker so within ten to fifteen minutes the product starts to work and you get a good night’s rest, you wake up fresh.
But is vaping your vitamins which needs a go?
It’s very unnatural actually to be done via the lungs.Vitamins are meant to really be ingested and I don’t see a reason why one would want to vape that. Whether or not there’s any benefit, I haven’ t seen any controlled studies to say whether there’ s a benefit or whether there’ s a risk but medicine is a good part of science but also a good part of common sense.
Of course, the common sense to ingest your daily requirement of vitamins and minerals is to eat nutritious food.
