process, ActiGuard™ S Natural Performance Ingredient is
rich in bio-active phytochemicals and gets all of its bio-
activity from a completely natural source, Sorghum bran.

multi-layered outer skin known as the bran. This outer “skin”

the grain from pests, sunlight, disease, water loss and
damage. Just as the bran protects the seed, the bran can
help protect the skin.
