Micronization is a process used to increase the solubility and bioavailability of substances.
Micronization involves reducing the particle size of solids to a finer, more consistent size, typically in the range of 0.1-10 micrometers.

Why It's More Potent and Improves Bioavailability?

By reducing particle size, the surface area of the substance increases relative to its volume. This increased surface area allows for more efficient and rapid dissolution in the body. Smaller, more uniform particles reduce the variability in how ingredients are absorbed and processed by different individuals, leading to more effective treatment.

Micronization can significantly improve solubility, which is a critical factor in absorption.

Enhanced Solubility
Improved Absorption

Many ingredients are poorly soluble in their natural state. Micronization can significantly improve solubility, which is a critical factor in ingredients absorption. 

The smaller particles can be absorbed more easily by the body, thus enhancing the bioavailability of the substance. This means that a lower dose can achieve the same effect.

With increased solubility and absorption, the onset of action can be faster, making the ingredients more effective in a shorter period.

Particle Sizes Example

Coarse Granules

1000-2000 micrometers (µm)
Example: Granulated sugar or table salt.

Fine Granules

250-1000 micrometers (µm) Example: Fine sand or powdered sugar.

Very Fine Granules

100-250 micrometers (µm) Example: Flour or fine cosmetic powders.

Course Powder

45-100 micrometers (µm)
Example: Ground coffee or loose face powder.

Fine Powder

10-45 micrometers (µm)
Example: Talcum powder or pollen.

Micronized Particles

0.1-10 micrometers (µm)
Example: Micronized drugs or pigments in high-quality paints.
