BioActives LLC of Worcester, Mass., was recently issued a patent for a highly water-dispersible Policosanol complex marketed under its MicroActive® brand name. Policosanol derived from sugarcane wax is believed to promote heart and circulatory health. Improving its ability to disperse in water leads to a more highly bioavailable form.
Dan Kagan, PhD, a partner at BioActives LLC, believes, “MicroActive® Policosanol when paired with MicroActive CoQ10 creates a highly bioavailable sustained-release product with superior heart-health benefits.” He goes on to say, “These products are part of our collection of heart-health-focused products such as Cardio HB, a standardize hibiscus extract, and 3nB Celery Seed Extract, a high-phthalides extract believed to lower blood pressure.
MicroActive Policosanol adds to a growing line of highly-bioavailable MicroActive ingredients with sustained-release properties. These ingredients limit the variations in absorption from person-to-person thereby creating a better product for consumers. Many of the MicroActive products are distributed in partnership with Maypro Industries of Purchase, N.Y.
