Research in field supports determining role of superior organic acids and derived substances as mediators (utility carriers), for proper functioning of cellular entities (gene activation, cell signal regulation, etc.). From this class, superior essential organic acids (polyunsaturated), fat-soluble vitamins (E, D, provitamin A), are recognized as carriers of utilities in cellular permeation ("transmembrane translators") and in the regulation of nervous system functions.

The dual hydrophobic/hydrophilic competence allows translation of lyophilic substances (fats and non-polar substances) and polar components or water. If the attractive forces are greater than those of Brownian repulsion and motion, the particles clump together to form aggregates or coagules, resulting in complex internal inhomogeneous structures.
