Better Absorption

Bottom line is this: Supplement ingredients are only as good as how well they’re absorbed.

With that fact in mind, our MicroActive® ingredients (such as CoQ10) are micronized and encapsulated to uniformly improve absorption and provide sustained-release and our Sucrosomial® Minerals (such as Magnesium) were developed to enhance mineral absorption through a unique technology that allows for better absorption and improved bioavailability.

The MicroActive® Line: Gradual, Sustained Release

The MicroActive® Line: Gradual, Sustained Release

The MicroActive formulation is tailored to each active ingredient to optimize its bioavailability and sustained release capabilities.

For example, MicroActive® CoQ10 is a complex of two B-cyclodextrin molecules and a CoQ10 molecule. One side of the molecule is fat-soluble and holds the CoQ10, while the other side is water-soluble and makes for efficient transport through the digestive system.

CoQ10 Charts

A study of MicroActive Curcumin saw the ingredient uptake peaked at 4 hours followed by sustained release till 12 hours. Plasma levels remained high at 12 hours, indicating additional sustained release beyond that point.

The benefits of MicroActive®️ ingredients include:
  • Superior sustained release
  • Improved bioavailability
  • Uniform absorption
  • Delivery format flexibility
  • Micronization process compatible with any active ingredient

Sucrosomial Minerals:
Improved Absorption and Bioavailability

Sucrosomial® minerals enhance mineral absorption through a unique technology in which a mineral is conveyed into a liposomal-like structure made up of a phospholipid and a sucrose ester of fatty acids (sucresters), called a sucrosome.

The sucresters act as emulsifiers, surrounding the liposomal-like structure that encapsulates the microelement, in this way increasing its absorption and bioavailability. Because the mineral is encapsulated, its absorption is not impacted by the presence of other nutrients.*

Several laboratory and animal tests have shown that the sucrose esters of fatty acids utilized in Sucrosomial technology are effective vehicles for improving solubility, dissolution, absorption, bioavailability, and palatability.
