The Key Benefits of Microgranule Supplements Versus Powder Capsules
If you are familiar with taking supplements, you’ve probably come across various forms: capsules containing powders or tablets – consisting of compressed powder – are the most common forms, other than soft gels, liquids, gummies, etc…
One of the less common forms is encapsulated microgranules (micro pellets). This form is mostly used in the pharmaceutical industry for medicine however the technology is now also applied to herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Why microgranules supplements have advantages compared to other forms of supplements?
Microgranules are made using a specific process that is unique and is proven to offer a lot of advances compared to the most standard forms :
Easy to take:
The capsule can be swallowed or opened for sublingual absorption (microgranules are placed under the tongue) or mixed in water, juice or yogurt.
It is a great advantage for people who cannot swallow pills and children.
Gastro-protection and high bioavailability:
Microgranules technology offers a specific gastro-protection of the active ingredients, with a protective layer on the granules that dissolve over time and that can resist gastric acidity. This way the active ingredients can reach their point of absorption, in the gut, without being damaged.
Studies have shown that only 4% of the active ingredients are damaged acid environment against 20% for powders.
After they pass the digestive barrier, microgranules disperse in the intestine, enabling a larger surface of absorption for the organism to absorb them faster.
An important aspect of this form of supplement is the controlled release. It is possible to control when the active ingredients will be released over a period of time.
- Made of 100% natural active ingredients
- Completely bioavailable and biocompatible
- In “Controlled release” microgranules form to ensure prolonged effectiveness and targeted action in the body
