Sucrosomial®: 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.

Bio Active Ingredients carries a full line of Sucrosomial® minerals including the just launched Sucrosomial Vitamin D3 with a new study due to publish this Fall.

COLLinstant® LMW: Next level skin beauty from within!

COLLinstant® Low Molecular Weight is a novel cosmeceutical with low molecular weight collagen peptides that promote skin beauty ‒ fast, efficient and effective.

Based on the established COLLinstant® collagen formula, Viscofan has developed COLLinstant® LMW as a highly efficient collagen hydrolysate with a low molecular weight ≤ 1000 Da and a favorable peptide profile according to the latest scientific knowledge. Its clinically tested fast and profound effects on skin appearance, the ease of use and its high acceptance rank COLLinstant® LMW as next generation cosmeceutical.

A novel collagen: bioactive di- and tripeptides make the difference

In contrast to regular collagen hydrolysates, COLLinstant® LMW contains a high amount of glycine and proline-rich peptides (Gly-X-Y).

These small, bioactive molecules are a major advantage over regular collagen formulas: They mediate a quick and efficient uptake in the digestive tract, are highly bioavailable, and feature an enhanced stability & efficacy especially in the skin.

Here, they serve as building material and stimulator for the synthesis of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that lead to an improvement of skin appearance.

Skin improvements in clinical study

The standard recommendation for normal molecular weight collagen food supplements to achieve skin & anti-aging improvements is a daily intake of 10 g over a period of at least 6 months.

Low molecular weight collagen with a high content of bioactive tri- and dipeptides is more effective with a quicker onset: In a low dosage clinical study, a daily intake of only 2.5 g COLLinstant® LMW for 6 weeks was sufficient to elucidate beneficial effects on skin health: The low molecular weight formula led to a significant reduction of wrinkles, a considerable increase in skin hydration as well as to modest improvements in skin elasticity.
