The Importance of Proper Nutrition

You’re aware of the importance of proper nutrition. You exercise regularly. You expect high performance from your body and you want to reach the winner’s circle. You watch your diet and eat the very best foods:  You’re ready for Lexaria Energy.

Discover the importance of imported full spectrum hemp oil constituents and how our patent pending technology is laboratory proven to provide up to 499% better absorption of these ingredients into human intestinal cells.

Revolutionary New Protein Energy Bars

HAVE you heard of our revolutionary new line of protein energy bars that not only deliver the nutritious qualities you demand, but also offer the added benefit of boosting the functionality of the human endocannabinoid system to improve its performance and conditioning?  “Morning” and “Afternoon” bars with unique formulations that include slow-release fruit-based energy in the morning and loads of protein and fiber in the afternoon. And the world’s FIRST & ONLY bars containing imported full spectrum hemp oil formulated with special bioabsorption properties.

499% Absorption Gains

Independent, third party lab results are in. In an in vitro study, a 499% improvement in cannabinoid absorption by human intestinal cells was achieved utilizing our patent pending infusion technology with lipid formulation, compared to cannabinoids without an enabling infusion technology or lipid formulation.

We Care About Our Community

We care about our community and we put our money where our mouth is. That’s why Lexaria will contribute $50,000 of our first $1,000,000 in net profits to charity every year. These are funds that we will direct to medical and community-focused charities as our way of saying “Thank You” to all our customers for your support.

Potent Nitric Oxide Boosting Effects

We commissioned a study meant to provide support for the thesis that our patent pending technology can have bioavailability enhancing properties. Certain molecules are known to elevate levels of the endocannabinoid anandamide in the human body which, in turn, stimulates release of nitric oxide in the vascular system.

Elevated levels of nitric oxide in the body have been shown to have many benefits including athletic performance and endurance enhancing effects.  Nitric oxide is a potent vasodilator, causing increased flow of oxygen and nutrients to tissues and simultaneous increased removal of toxins from tissues such as lactic acid which accumulates due to intense physical activity.

The study we commissioned demonstrated potent effects in boosting nitric oxide levels in the body following ingestion of single servings of our range of products available under the Lexaria Energy Foods and ViPova brands, using a salivary nitric oxide test.  Six healthy volunteer subjects (3 male and 3 female) between the ages of 22 and 65 years of age were recruited for the study.  Subjects were screened for cardiovascular and allergic response to hemp products, were non-smokers and did not have any history of substance or alcohol abuse.  Subjects were required to refrain from eating food or using other cannabinoid products for at least 12 hours before test article administration.  Nitric oxide levels in the test subjects were assessed using a commercially available, colorimetric test kit designed to quantify systemic nitric oxide via a detectable salivary marker.   Immediately before test article administration, all subjects were required to demonstrate a negative baseline nitric oxide saliva test.  Subjects were considered to have a negative test strip reading at a level of 20 µM according to the test strip scale, and positive readings anywhere above this.  Subjects performed salivary nitric oxide testing at 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes post-consumption.  All subjects remained sedentary from baseline through to the completion of testing.  The results of the study indicated significant increases in salivary nitric oxide, achieving levels from 110 µM to as high as 220 µM in the test subjects in as little as 30 minutes through to the 60 minute end-point used in the study.

These positive results provide support of the enhanced bioavailability of certain molecules from the Lexaria Energy Foods and ViPova products tested.
