SunActive® Zinc

SunActive® Zinc

Cognitive Health, Immune Support

SunActive® is a patented, nutrient delivery system for minerals. The SunActive® delivery system involves micronization and encapsulation of insoluble minerals to create a stable dispersion of fine particles when mixed in water. SunActive® technology works very well for insoluble minerals that normally have poor bioavailability. Micronization dramatically improves bioavailability, and coupled with no metallic taste, makes SunActive® minerals work well for powdered drink formulas.

NutriScience also offers a SunActive® Iron and SunActive® Magnesium, within the SunActive® Nutrient Delivery System portfolio of products.


SunActive® is part of an exclusive portfolio of proprietary ingredients from NutriScience Innovations, LLC and is a registered trademark of Taiyo International, Inc.
