Controlled release offers a unique differentiation when it comes to supplementation. It allows the diffusion of the active ingredients either at a specific time and/or during a specific length of time. This is very beneficial depending on the area of the body and the function we are targeting.
Laboratoires Activa supplements use the microgranule technology that offers 3 types of controlled release:
– Immediate release
– Extended release
– Delayed release
The microgranule technology enables the protection of the actives thanks to a semi-permeable outer membrane designed to protect the ingredients from gastric acidity and dissolve according to the targeted action.
80% of the actives are released over a period of 45 minutes. The active ingredients in the microgranules are rapidly released for the body to use them immediately.
Delayed release is used for formulations that require very specific release at a targeted time/area such as pre- and probiotics. As they require gastro-protection they will be released after passing trough the stomach.
We are able to cover an 8 hours period over which the active ingredients are delivered to the body. This is particularly useful and effective to address conditions that require a prolonged action such sleep.
Controlled release is one of the many key benefits offered by Laboratoires Activa range of natural supplements, thanks to the unique technology of microgranules.
