CoQ10 is a vitamin-like, fat-soluble substance found in the mitochondria of almost all the cells in the body. It is used in the electron transport chain, a process of aerobic cellular respiration that generates 90 to 95% of the energy used by the body; it is also a powerful antioxidant.*
But as a dietary supplement, crystalline CoQ10 is typically absorbed poorly. In fact, on average, only three percent of the consumed dose is actually absorbed.
MicroActive® CoQ10 targets this problem directly. Supported by four human clinical studies, 24-hour sustained release MicroActive CoQ10 has uniformly enhanced bioavailability and:
- Is 3 times better absorbed than regular (crystalline) CoQ10.
- Is 2 times better absorbed than solubilized (enhanced bioavailability) CoQ10 softgels.
- Doubles CoQ10 levels from baseline after 3 weeks in 100% of users.
MA CoQ10 is dairy-free, Halal, Kosher and made in the USA.
Curcumin naturally promotes joint comfort, supports heart health and provides antioxidant protection.*
However, curcumin is very difficult for the human body to absorb and, what little is absorbed, is quickly excreted.
MicroActive Curcumin was developed to address this issue through a micronized, sustained-release technology that allows for better and more uniform absorption and retention.
Supported by two studies comparing it to other curcumin formulations, 12-hour multi-staged sustained release MicroActive Curcumin:
- has superior bioavailability: 10x greater absorption than regular curcumin.
- reaches peak blood levels more quickly: 2 hours versus 4 hours for regular curcumin.
- delivers two important curcuminoids: demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin.
- provides sustained release over 12 hours.
MA Curcumin is dairy-free and made in the USA.
Supported by 30 human clinical trials, Oligonol is a patented, low-molecular-weight polyphenol derived from lychee fruit (85%) and green tea (15%) with excellent absorption and multiple anti-aging benefits.*
It addresses the three major causes of aging: poor blood circulation, cell oxidation and inflammation.*
MicroActive® Oligonol is a recently introduced, micronized form of Oligonol that has exhibited significant sustained release activity in dissolution studies and increased residence time and absorption in a human study.
The results of this research show that MicroActive Oligonol boasts 2.39 times greater bioavailability than regular Oligonol.
MA Oligonol is dairy-free and made in the USA.
MicroPQQ® delivers the natural brand of PQQ in a special micronized, sustained-release matrix. Because the PQQ is released over time, it stays in the blood longer — and so is active longer — than regular PQQ.
In fact, a comparative human case study showed that MicroPQQ is 2.2x more bioavailable than regular PQQ and delivers more than a 9-hour sustained release.
Since the degradation of mitochondria is a key contributing factor in physiological aging, MicroPQQ may slow this process and increase energy levels.
MicroPQQ is dairy-free and made in the USA.
A bright-red antioxidant carotenoid, astaxanthin tackles a number of health areas, including some related to aging, including: enhancing skin health; improving recovery from exercise; relieving occasional indigestion; supporting gastric health; helping maintain cholesterol levels already within a healthy range; boosting immune response; promoting healthy vision; and helping the male reproductive system.
However, astaxanthin is virtually insoluble in gastric and intestinal fluids, giving it poor bioavailability. Even in solubilized formulas, it quickly precipitates out once saturation is reached, making it hard for the body to absorb and use.
MicroActive® Astaxanthin was developed to address this challenge through a micronized, sustained-release technology that allows for better absorption and retention.*
A pilot human study comparing MicroActive Astaxanthin to another astaxanthin preparation (10% astaxanthin in oil) showed that MicroActive Astaxanthin offers:
- uniformly enhanced absorption;
- higher continued absorption over time;
- 3.6x higher uptake than regular astaxanthin (10% astaxanthin in oil); and
- 24-hour sustained release.*
MA Astaxanthin is dairy-free, non-GMO and made in the USA.
Resveratrol is an antioxidant polyphenol that encourages healthy metabolism, normal insulin sensitivity and optimal blood flow — all of which can yield cardiovascular, brain and anti-aging benefits.
While this compound is reasonably well-absorbed, it has a very short half-life. Because it does not stay in the bloodstream very long, its benefits can be difficult to unlock.
MicroActive® Resveratrol was developed to address this issue through a micronized, sustained-release technology that allows for better absorption and retention.
A pilot human study comparing MicroActive Resveratrol to other resveratrol formulations showed it:
- has superior bioavailability, 2.5x greater than regular resveratrol;
- achieves higher serum levels [of resveratrol] over a longer period of time; and
- delivers sustained release over 12 hours.
