The microcapsule is made using patented Efficient Absorption Technology (EPT) . It is because of this technology that vitamins, minerals and plant extracts are broken down into very small particles and covered with a protective swab – a microcapsule. It works in two ways: as a protective layer of the substance inside (protects the nutrients inside from stomach acids and other substances that destroy substances). Second, encapsulated materials tend to stick inside the microcapsule and therefore do not irritate the stomach. Thus, this way of encapsulating nutrients can ensure up to 6 times more efficient absorption in the body.
