THE NANO9 MISSION
About Our Founder
From the time he was a youth, Tracy Gibbs knew he wanted to change the world. At the early age of 16, he would stay up late into the night listening to motivational tapes that taught him about living with an abundance of purpose and meaning. He came to believe that in order to make the most out of his life, he needed to help as many people as possible.
For the last 28 years, he has pursued the optimization of cellular absorption, creating multiple inventions and conducting cutting-edge research for the improvement of nutrient absorption. He made it his life’s mission to help others become healthy and happy through innovative supplementation. Throughout these years, it has become clear to Tracy that the phrase “you are what you eat” is unfortunately not true. Instead, “you are what you absorb.” In other words, for a supplement to be effective, the nutrients must make it into the cell.
Tracy developed a new technology that addressed this problem on a whole new scale. He trademarked the invention NanoZorb™ Technology, and it is an innovation that has changed the trajectory of the supplement and nutraceutical industry forever.
He and his team at Nano9 specialize in nanotechnology and liposomal nutraceuticals. These technologies decrease the particle size of nutrients by thousands of times, substantially increasing their ability to be successfully absorbed by human cells.
Even the most dense pills and powders only provide 5% absorption digestively. The pill must go through stomach acid, kidney and liver filtration, and then the small intestine to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Nano-technology supplementation skips this process, going straight into the bloodstream and then into the cell. This makes them 100% absorbable.
This nanoparticle technology has already been used in over 1,000 different dietary supplements and skincare products, resulting in over $3 Billion in products sold. This patented technology can be used to improve the absorbability of a multiplicity of different nutraceuticals and dietary supplements.
Nano9 continues to have success with many supplement companies, including white labeling their own formulations for distribution. Tracy and his team have had the privilege of using NanoZorb Technology to change many people's lives. The number of letters and notes of gratitude received has been truly astounding and humbling. This immensely positive response has only increased Tracy’s motivation to continue to progress and find more ways to improve people’s lives.
