MicroActive Ingredients - Why Small Size can mean Big Absorption

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.
