What types of DDDA are there?

DDDA as Metabolyte™
July 24, 2023

Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) (as patent-pending Metabolyte™) comes in powder form as sodium dodecanedioic acid and potassium dodecanedioic acid. They dissolve easily in water for powder and stick pack dosage forms. Sodium and potassium are the two most important electrolytes for several reasons:

    •   Sodium dodecanedioic acid is NOT sodium chloride (salt). Sodium Metabolyte™ is a healthy sodium.
    •   Potassium is the most deficient mineral in the American diet, with roughly 0% of the population obtaining enough potassium. With an RDI of ~4700mg, 99mg capsule supplements cannot make a practical dent in deficiencies. So, Potassium Metabolyte™ ingested in larger quantities in powder form represents a health and commercial opportunity potentially as large as magnesium. And as of June 2023, magnesium is one of the world’s most popular supplements.



Where is DDDA found?

Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA) (as Metabolyte™) is found in some plants such as green beans (Phaseolus vulgaris). Other dicarboxylic acids can be found in castor oil, for example. Because DDDA is found in low concentrations in nature, the only practical way to obtain DDDA is through supplementation like patent-pending Metabolyte™. And only Metabolyte is self-affirmed Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) and regulatorily compliant.

Compound Solutions is pioneering this “supercharged MCT” called Metabolyte™ in dietary supplements.
