Statin/Icariin Formulations with Increased Solubility

William Baumgartner, Liu, Zhijun

AgCenter scientists have developed a new encapsulation formulation to increase the solubility of statin and icariin compounds. The increase in solubility was tens of thousands fold for both compounds according to lab experiments. This can greatly increase the bioavailability, or absorption into the body, of statin- and icariin-related drugs. Both concepts have been formulated into powders with relatively high drug loads. All ingredients used in the process are natural.
