A rich source of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory healing power, this brown algae is an undeniable force in the world of all natural nutritive health. Tap into this ancient oceanic source for a longer, more sustainable fitness.
It may not necessarily sound all that appetising but Swanson GreenFoods Ecklonia Cava Extract is actually a type of brown algae or seaweed which is farmed off the coastal regions of Japan, Korea and the south eastern coastline of China.
You're probably more familiar with seaweed (in its edible form at least) on the menu at a Chinese restaurant but there's a reason why algae is such a prized nutrient in the East. Also known as phaeophyta laminariales, this underwater plant has been renowned for its ability to promote longevity and general wellbeing amongst its consumers for centuries.
Derived from a specific series of brown algae, Swanson GreenFoods Ecklonia Cava Extract is a standardized organic complex of unique aquatic molecules. Scientists are just beginning to come to terms with the idea that because the algae is subaqueous, it draws out all of the nourishing goodness from the ocean itself, rendering it a far more powerful form of antioxidant than its land dwelling alternatives.
Indeed, some studies have returned results documenting an ORAC value between ten and one hundred times higher than that of Green Tea. And because Swanson GreenFoods Ecklonia Cava Extract is water soluble, it is far more capable of disseminating around the body more rapidly and more effectively.
Because Swanson GreenFoods Ecklonia Cava Extract is one of the highest sources of phloroglucinols (a type of incredibly potent antioxidant compound that appears to be unique to sea plants) it offers you the very best protection against free radical oxidation.
Free radicals are cells which have mutated as a result of oxidative stress. Although it might seem odd that oxygen, one of our most important sources of life, should be harmful to us, on a cellular level it really is. Fortunately we have all different kinds of antioxidants available to us, some more effective than others. Swanson GreenFoods Ecklonia Cava Extract is not just one of those antioxidants but an absolute powerhouse of one.
Some studies have even suggested that this exotic marine plant extract can provide meaningful anti-inflammatory support for both your heart and your cholesterol.
