Ecklonia Cava is red and brown sea algae that grow 100 feet below the ocean’s surface near Korea and Japan. It is a food that has been eaten for centuries. Over $35 million has been spent on clinical studies over the last 15 years in the U.S., Japan, and Korea, documenting the benefits of Ecklonia Cava.
Ecklonia Cava extract has extremely potent and unique antioxidant properties. Firstly, unlike typical water soluble flavonoids and polyphenols, it is fat-soluble and able to get past the blood brain barrier, and remain in circulation for much longer. Also, antioxidant ability is measured by the amount of phenol rings composing its structure. Flavonoids usually contain 2-3 interconnected rings, whilst green tea catechins contain 4 interconnected rings.
Ecklonia Cava has up to 8 interconnected rings, making it 10-100 times more potent in battling free radicals and oxidative stress, especially in critical sites such as membranes where it can readily access.
It is a superfood in its own right – containing all 72 different trace minerals, and is a good source of iodine, mannitol, fucoidan, alginates, fucoxanthin, lamarin, eckol, dieckol and more.
As a very balanced food that doesn’t leach any nutrients from the body, it can be taken long-term to bring about amazing health benefits. It is one of those foods that even the most sensitive and sickest of individuals respond positively to. It also deals with deep underlying issues such as retroviruses, mercury, aluminium and glyphosate – making it an intelligent toxin binder that is very relevant in today’s context of common underlying issues causing disease.
It robustly restores the endothelium, bringing about very potent and quickly noticeable benefits for cardiovascular function and blood circulation – improving brain and even erectile function! Ecklonia Cava also provides great support for blood sugar, inflammation, cholesterol, weight loss, immunity, sleep, mood, joints and connective tissue.
