Exploring the Ethical Benefits of Vegetal Capsules: Laboratoires Activa’s Sustainable Choice

Exploring the Ethical Benefits of Vegetal Capsules: Laboratoires Activa's Sustainable Choice

In the pharmaceutical and dietary supplement industries, vegetal capsules, also known as vegetable capsules, are gaining popularity for their ethical and sustainable characteristics. A vegetal capsule is made entirely from plant-derived materials, typically cellulose or starch, rather than gelatin, which is derived from animal collagen. Laboratoires Activa’s decision to adopt vegetal capsules reflects a commitment to ethical sourcing and responsible business practices, viewed through several ethical lenses.

Respect for Consumer Choice

Laboratoires Activa recognizes and respects the diverse dietary preferences and ethical considerations of consumers. By offering products encapsulated in vegetal capsules, the company provides options for individuals seeking products free from animal-derived ingredients, such as vegetarians, thus empowering consumers to make autonomous purchasing decisions aligned with their values.

Environmental Responsibility

Opting for vegetable capsules aligns with Laboratoires Activa’s commitment to environmental sustainability. Derived from plant-based materials such as cellulose or starch, vegetal capsules offer a renewable and eco-friendly alternative to gelatin capsules, which are sourced from animal collagen. This choice reflects the company’s dedication to reducing environmental impact and promoting sustainable practices within the health supplement industry.

Animal Welfare

 Laboratoires Activa’s use of vegetal capsules demonstrates a stance in support of animal welfare. By avoiding the use of gelatin capsules, derived from animal sources, the company contributes to reducing the demand for animal-derived products. This decision aligns with ethical concerns regarding animal agriculture and cruelty, promoting a more humane approach to product manufacturing.

Overall, Laboratoires Activa’s decision to use vegetal capsules embodies ethical principles that prioritise consumer preferences, environmental sustainability,and animal welfare. Through this commitment, the company demonstrates its dedication to social responsibility and ethical business conduct in the health supplement industries.

Beyond Compliance: The Pillars of GMP Certification in Manufacturing Health Supplements

Beyond Compliance: The Pillars of GMP Certification in Manufacturing Health Supplements

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) refers to a set of regulations and guidelines established by regulatory agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. GMP compliance is essential to ensure the consistent production of safe and effective products following the public health guidelines.

Laboratoires Activa proudly adheres to these guidelines and holds GMP certification for the manufacturing of all its dietary supplements.

These guidelines define the minimum requirements for the manufacturing processes, facilities, equipment, personnel, and controls necessary to ensure the quality, safety, and efficacy of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, food, and other consumer products.

Key principles of GMP include:

GMP certification is essential for ensuring the quality, safety, and efficacy of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other consumer products. This certification is renewed yearly following an inspection from the accredited delivery authorities.
By adhering to GMP guidelines, we demonstrate our commitment to maintaining rigorous standards throughout the production process. This certification provides assurance to worldwide regulatory agencies, healthcare professionals, and consumers that products are manufactured under controlled conditions and meet established quality criteria. Ultimately, GMP certification plays a crucial role in safeguarding public health and maintaining trust in the integrity of the manufacturing industry.

Exploring the Advantages of Controlled Release Microgranules in Activa Products

Exploring the Advantages of Controlled Release Microgranules in Activa Products

Understanding Controlled Release

Controlled release microgranules operate on the principle of gradual and sustained release of active compounds within the body. Unlike conventional supplement formulations, where the release of ingredients occurs rapidly and in a single burst, controlled release microgranules ensure a prolonged and controlled delivery of bioactive components over an extended period.

The Significance of Dissolution Testing

The efficacy of controlled release microgranules is rigorously evaluated through dissolution testing. This analytical procedure serves as a critical quality assessment tool, determining the rate and extent of supplement dissolution in simulated physiological conditions.

In essence, dissolution testing involves mimicking the physiological environment within the body and assessing how efficiently a supplement dissolves. By subjecting Activa’s controlled release microgranules to this testing regimen, we ascertain their ability to sustainably release active ingredients over time compared to conventional formulations.

Beneficial Implications for Consumers

In conclusion, the integration of controlled release microgranules represents a significant stride forward in supplement formulation technology. With its capacity to optimise the delivery of active ingredients, Activa’s products equipped with controlled release microgranules offer a sophisticated solution for individuals seeking enhanced efficacy and convenience in their supplementation regimen.

Activa Omega 3 Supplements: The innovation that makes the difference

Activa Omega 3 Supplements
– The innovation that makes the difference –
High bioavailability, purity and reduced dosage

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that are important for overall health and wellness. They offer great health benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving heart health, and supporting brain function. There are two main forms of omega-3 fatty acids that are commonly found in fish oil based supplements: Ethyl Ester (EE) and Triglyceride (TG) forms.

The primary difference between omega-3 EE and TG forms lies in The chemical structure of their nucleus. 

In the EE form, the nucleus is chemically modified to create an ethyl ester, which allows to enrich it with EPA/DHA in the required proportions and purify them. Unfortunately the downside is that they have a low availability and oxidise fasts.

In contrast, the TG form is the natural form of omega 3, this is how it is found in fish and this is how we store and use it in our bodies. Its bioavailability is excellent. However, natural fish oils are not very concentrated in EPA/DHA and they contain impurities.
As a consequence; to have the right dose of fatty acids, it is necessary to take a large dose of oil (and its impurities), which can affect digestion and intestinal transit.

A solution is to transform these TG oils into EE, this process is called transesterification. To put it simply, EPA/DHA is separated from its glycerol support, purified and recombined with an alcohol (ethanol). Through this chemical manipulation, we obtain purified fatty acids that can be concentrated in EPA/ DHA as desired.

However, an important downside is that EE oil oxidises more quickly. Moreover, as this is a new form that does not exist in nature, our body has, unfortunately, high difficulty assimilating it as it doesn’t have the enzymes necessary to separate EPA and DHA from its ethanol support. Some studies show that the absorption of a TG vs EE oil ranges from 71% to 400%…

Another option, which is costly because it involves a long and complicated process, is to take the EE oil and separate it from its ethanol support, and recombine it in TG form by adding glycerol.
As a result, we have the best of both worlds: a purified oil with a high concentration of EPA DHA .
Moreover, this oil has also a better resistance to oxidation thanks to a specific airless encapsulating method.
It means that thanks to this specific transformation process, this oil is highly concentrated in EPA and DHA, and because it has a low oxidation, you can ingest small doses (in the form of small soft gel capsules (while most products are hard and large capsules), achieve a high bioavailability and enjoy its health benefits.

How do you know if your oil is in TG or EE oil?

If TG is indicated on the packaging, it means that it is in the triglyceride form, however if it is not indicated the oil is an EE form.
