Simple and non-toxic methods for enhancing the water solubility and bioavailability of flavonoids such as resveratrol and curcumin, which are known to have beneficial health effects. Higher bioavailability will allow for easier clinical testing of health benefits and dose-response studies, and will enable administration of smaller and less frequent doses to achieve the desired health effect.
