Gigartina - Red Marine Algae

Gigartina - Red Marine Algae

Recent advances in Botanical science have identified a number of plant-based compounds that are particularly good at improving and supporting the human immune system. One such group of specialized, immune-enhancing compounds is the sulfated polysaccharides; a group of sulphur-rich sugars that are found almost exclusively in a select group of algae belonging to the Gigartinacae family.

These sufated polysaccharides are understood to help quell inflammation on a cellular level, and are also thought to be able to shield your cell membranes from the assault of various inflammatory pathogens.

Gigartina Red Marine Algae is simply encapsulated powder from the leaves of five different strains of algae from the family Gigartinaceae; chosen because of their ability to provide your body with an abundance of sulfated polysaccharides.

How can the Addition of Gigartina Red Marine Algae Help You?

With this immune enhancing supplement, you can help to improve your body’s ability to deal with inflammation on a cellular level, and also provide yourself with additional protection from the symptoms of several inflammatory health conditions, including:

  • Eczema
  • Urinary infections
  • Asthma
  • Gout
  • Boils
  • Ulcers

Anecdotal evidence indicates that the plant sterols found in certain strains of the red marine algae used in Gigartina tablets may be able to help combat problems with dry or itchy skin as well, and it’s believed that the antiviral properties of many algae belonging to the Gigartina family can even aid your body in eradicating acne.

Red Marine Algae SupplementFor centuries, Red Marine Algae has been a dietary staple in many cultures, particularly in the Far East. Red Marine Algae are also prescribed throughout China and Japan as a potent medicinal aid, mainly because of their sulphated polysaccharide content which, as mentioned above, provides them with the ability to significantly bolster human immune functions.

Although at first glance these complex and sulfar-rich sugars appear to be very rare, Sulfated polysaccharides actually make up a significant portion of the biomass in over 25 different strains of Red Marine Algae. The difficulty has always lain in finding species of Red Marine Algae that are both readily-digestible, and still rich enough in these complex sugars to support and strengthen immune response.

That’s why, when formulating this Nutritious supplement, Vibrant Health have teamed up with SeaTech to perform a rigorous search among red sea algae for those with the most bioavailable sulfated polysaccharides content.

According to Vibrant Health’s detailed nutritional analysis, the end result of this painstaking search is a supplement that can supply an unprecedentedly large amount of digestible sulfated polysaccharides per gram of algae powder.
