From the Vendor: Lyophilization, or freeze drying, stabilizes the Ostrich Peptides for long-term storage while minimizing the damage that may be caused by strictly drying the product. This short laboratory procedure can be used with any commercially available freeze dryer in order to preserve a culture collection. In addition to dietary supplements such as CBD IMMUNE BUDDY™, some of the typical products that would undergo lyophilization include bulk pharmaceutical / biopharmaceutical ingredients (chemical or biologics found in nature), protein, collagen, peptide, oligonucleotide, chemical API, and enzymes. Lyophilization enables longer shelf life and makes it much easier to transport the product. In addition, products can be stored at room temperature. Lyophilization is undoubtedly important to our process in creating and delivering the first product of its kind to the nutraceutical market.
