‘Cubosome’ Science to Slow the Caffeine Comedown?

Many of us are familiar with the jittery feeling that comes from consuming too much caffeine too quickly. But what if you could drink one beverage and enjoy the boost effect caffeine provides in a slow, sustained way throughout the day?

Scientists at Nestlé Research Center in Lausanne, Switzerland, have collaborated with EPFL andETHZ on new research, published in Nature Communications, which could accelerate the development of such foods or supplements.

The research focused on ‘cubosomes’, which mimic natural structures present in the body. These are made of lipid molecules and water, and can release nutrients or medicines in the human body in a controlled fashion.

The scientists used 3D microscopy to accurately map the inside of cubosomes for the first time. The aim is to adapt cubosomes, by placing active ingredients in different parts of their structure, and changing their structures to tune the release.
