Shelf life and storage
How quickly should I use up a product?
After production, the shelf life of an unopened product is between 6 and 12 months. This depends on the product and its ingredients. The expiration date of our products can be found on the lid of each bottle. Once opened, you should keep the products refrigerated and consume them within 6 weeks! Since the dosage of our products is usually 10 ml per day, the 100 ml bottle can be used up within 10 days. A 250 ml bottle is intended for a 25-day intake.
How can I tell if my ActiNovo product is spoiled?
Clear indicators of product spoilage are mold on the surface or a foamy, fermented, firm consistency. Please note: since our products are 100% natural, a sour, bitter taste is normal and not an indication of spoilage!
Other possible but harmless product changes:
Hissing: There may be a slight fizz as soon as the bottle seal is opened. This is due to the fact that we pack the ActiNovo products with nitrogen. This is completely harmless!
Deposition on the bottom of the bottle: This is a slight settling of the lecithin, which has no negative effects. Please just shake the bottle vigorously before consumption!
Deposition on the surface: Excess lecithin may be deposited on the surface and look like a surface film. The product can continue to be consumed upon vigorous shaking.
How should I ideally store the products?
Unopened, the products can be stored at room temperature at least until the date indicated on the bottle cap. Upon opening, the products should be refrigerated and protected from light. Please use products within 6 weeks from the date of opening. The formulations should not be heated or frozen!
What makes liposomal formulations so successful?
For practical reasons, most active ingredients are administered orally. This means that the active ingredient must first pass through the oral cavity and stomach before being absorbed in the intestine. In this way, an unprotected, non-liposomal active ingredient is often damaged and not absorbed efficiently. Liposomal formulations, on the other hand, enclose the active ingredient in a liposome, which passes through all the hurdles of the body almost undamaged and can therefore be absorbed very well. The nutrient enters the bloodstream without losses and can develop its full effect there!
What does the term bioavailability mean?
From a scientific point of view, bioavailability describes the proportion of a nutrient that is actually absorbed by the organism after ingestion and enters the bloodstream. Through the oral consumption of liposomal food supplements, the vital substance migrates via the intestine directly into the blood and is fully available to the body!
What do ActiNovo liposomal formulations taste like?
Our PURE products have a natural, unadulterated taste and are deliberately free of sweeteners, flavors or similar substitutes. The function of the nutrients is the absolute focus! Depending on the ingredient, there may be a slightly sour, bitter or even salty taste! For a simplified intake, all products can be mixed in juices, smoothies or other non-alcoholic, non-carbonated drinks.
In addition, we have expanded our PURE line and added a fruity flavor to some of our products. This ActiNovo PLUS line contains natural sweeteners and flavors that in no way compromise the intake of liposomal nutrients.
Are the ActiNovo products vegan?
Almost all our products are vegan, 100% natural and of plant origin! They contain neither dairy products nor gluten. They consist only of sunflower-derived phospholipids, water and the respective active ingredient!
So far, only our liposomal collagen is not a vegan item as it contains collagen of bovine origin.
What color are the ActiNovo products?
Our products have a beige color. Depending on the active ingredient, this color may change slightly. It is possible that small dark films form on the surface and at the bottom of the bottle. These are completely harmless and limit neither their quality nor effectiveness. Just shake the bottle before intake.
Are ActiNovo products medications?
The liposomal ActiNovo formulations are natural food supplements and are often used by doctors and alternative practitioners for therapeutic use. However, it must be noted that legally, they are not medicines! Therefore, we recommend that you do not self-medicate and always consult your doctor or health care practitioner before consuming any dietary supplement.
Why are the active ingredients not dosed even higher?
The entire functional principle of liposomal formulations is based on the fact that the active ingredient is masked, i.e. made invisible, by the phospholipids. The small intestine thus sees only the phospholipids and absorbs them with the active ingredient hidden in them. However, if the ratio between active substance and phospholipid is out of balance and the proportion of active substance is too high, this again becomes visible to the small intestine and the liposomal functional principle fails.
How to take ActiNovo
How and when do I consume ActiNovo products for the greatest effect?
The liposomal ActiNovo formulations can be taken at any time of the day! Ideally, however, we recommend taking them 15 minutes apart from meals. Please do not mix our products in hot drinks, as this will destroy the liposomes and reduce their effectiveness. Likewise, you should not put our formulations into a blender. However, all our products can be mixed into a smoothie, juice or protein shake with a spoon.
How should I dose the products?
Please note the individual recommended daily dose of each product to exclude potential but rarely occurring side effects. You can find the dosage information on the label or on the respective product page in our online store. For the majority of our products we recommend a daily dose of 10 ml, which corresponds to about two teaspoons. To make dosing easy, we offer the ActiNovo shot glass with a dosage scale in our store!
Can I take different liposomal products in combination?
Yes, all our ActiNovo products can be consumed in combination with each other. For some nutrients, such as vitamin C and iron , a combined intake even makes a lot of sense! For this reason, we offer combination products of several nutrients and also have combination packages on offer on our website.
Can I experience any side effects while taking it?
No. Due to the encapsulation of the active ingredients in liposomes, the nutrients are no longer unprotected in the digestive system. Gastric side effects can, therefore, be avoided. Symptoms such as diarrhea, which can occur with very high magnesium intake, are thus excluded!
The liposomes themselves are also non-toxic and are not known to cause any side effects.
Are ActiNovo products suitable for pregnant women or nursing mothers?
Pregnancy is a special time when there is a finely regulated hormonal and nutrient balance in the body. Our liposomal dosage recommendations are designed for an average adult. Often, the daily nutrient needs of pregnant women or nursing mothers vary, so any supplement intake should be discussed with a doctor in advance!
Are ActiNovo products suitable for children?
Children differ from adults in their metabolism, growth and development. Our recommended daily dosages are based on an average adult. Since liposomal supplements are not a substitute for a balanced, healthy diet, we recommend discussing any intake with a doctor!
What makes ActiNovo products unique?
All liposomal ActiNovo formulations are natural-based, vegan, made with a natural preservative and free from unnecessary additives! In addition, all our products are filled exclusively in glass bottles and shipped sustainably!
Are there studies and other evidence of your product efficacy?
For efficacy and quality control, we regularly conduct studies on the bioavailability of our liposomal products.
Who sells ActiNovo?

Who is the manufacturer of ActiNovo products?

Shipping costs to EU countries other than Germany are 9,90 €. However, for purchases valued above 75 €, shipping is free.

Non EU shipping: Shipping costs to non-EU countries are 24.90 €. This is waived for orders over 200 €. For USA and Canada, we recommend choosing the EXPRESS shipping option. This costs only a little more (depending on the weight) and is much faster. Note that usually the destination country charges customs fees! These are not included in the price.
