Rich In Sulfated PolysaccharidesRed marine algae (Rhodymenia palmata) are known to have the highest sulfated polysaccharides. This is a protein-bound carbohydrate that can help support the body’s immune system responses against different kinds of pathogens. Aside from sulfated polysaccharides, it also contains carrageenan – a type of sulphuric acid – that can also help boost the immune system. Moreover, it also contains a special type of pigment called anthocyanins that give the seaweed its red color. Studies show that this pigment also has antioxidant effects.
Contains Adequate Amounts Of Red Marine Algae ExtractStudies regarding red marine algae are not too numerous. This means that the standard amount that can bring about beneficial effects to the body is still anecdotal. Although this may be the case, the supplement contains adequate amounts of red marine algae extract based on anecdotal studies. This supplement contains 365 milligrams of pulverized Rhodymenia palmata tissues. Intake of at the most 4 capsules daily can help improve the immune system.
The Benefits Of Red Marine AlgaeRed marine algae are used to treat the symptoms of chronic viral diseases. Several studies suggest that it can help improve the condition of people suffering from herpes, influenza, and mononucleosis. There are also studies suggesting that it can suppress the activity of certain virus particularly those causing herpes simplex. But more than helping the immune system fight against the virus, it can also promote the cytotoxic activity of the immune cells when it comes to fighting against other pathogens. Thus, this supplement has antagonistic effects against bacteria, fungi, and teratogens.
Helps Support Healthy SkinAside from boosting the immune system, red marine algae can also support healthy skin, hair, and nails. The carrageenan can help promote the integrity of the integumentary system. Thus, it can benefit people who are suffering from certain skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It can also support a faster recovery of skin lesions. Thus, this supplement is also beneficial to wound healing.
Green ScreenedThe red marine algae are obtained from wild sources. They are densely distributed in the sea near Japan and China, but it is important to take note that harvesting the algal tissues involves sustainable methods. Aside from sustainable harvest, the raw ingredients are also screened to ensure that they do not contain any contaminants including heavy metals and other environmental toxins that the algae might have absorbed from its immediate surroundings. Because of the high-quality control imposed upon the harvest and manufacturing of this supplement, it was awarded by the Green Screened logo.
