POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT AND
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES OF SPIRULINA
Spirulina is a fantastic source of antioxidants, which can protect against oxidative damage. Its main active component is called phycocyanin. Phycocyanin is known to support healthy inflammatory response and has many antioxidant effects. Studies have shown that phycocyanin can reduce oxidative stress and inhibit free radicals. Phycocyanin may reduce negative effects from the body's normal inflammatory response. This antioxidant substance also gives spirulina its unique blue-green color.
Spirulina is only one of the many ingredients in Vita-Sea with these amazing antioxidant properties. Aquamin, Bladderwrack, Sea lettuce and Maqui berry also have these antioxidant effects. With all of these working together in Vita-Sea’s proprietary blend u get a sea plant supplement like no other.
THE IMPORTANCE OF ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants are known as scavengers of reactive oxygen species that can damage the membranes of cells in the body. Damage occurs to cells when the body doesn’t have enough antioxidants to counteract the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. (Free radicals are atoms or molecules that are highly reactive with other cellular structures because they contain unpaired electrons. They cause damage by stealing electrons from these cells.) These damaged/mutated cells can proliferate. In other words, the mutated cells can divide and grow. Which we know as tumors and cancer cells.
Oxidative stress damages proteins, lipids, and DNA. This damage can drive chronic inflammation, which contributes to cancer and other diseases.
What is Aquamin™?
Aquamin is the trademarked name for a range of marine minerals manufactured and supplied by Marigot Ltd. Aquamin is a multi-mineral complex which is derived from the red marine algae Lithothamnion calcareum. This unique alga looks more like what we picture when we think of coral than what we typically associate with algae. Lithothamnion absorbs calcium and magnesium into its cell walls to create a rigid honeycomb cell structure. It's this unique structure and the 72 trace minerals absorbed from the sea that make the calcium in Aquamin more bioactive than calcium derived from limestone (calcium carbonate).
Is Aquamin Safe?
The United States FDA recognizes Aquamin as GRAS, meaning that it is Generally Regarded as Safe. Aquamin has a history of use across over 40 countries in food, beverage and nutritional products. Aquamin seaweed multi-mineral complex is an all-natural, vegan, allergen free and non-GMO ingredient.
Where does Aquamin come from?
Lithothamnion calcareum is harvested in the pristine waters of the North Atlantic. It’s here where the warm waters of the Gulf Stream mix with the cold waters of the Arctic that an ideal environment for the deposition Lithothamnion is created. Aquamin is harvested in conjunction with international standards for sustainable marine aquaculture.
What are the health benefits of Aquamin?
A wealth of research on the purported benefits of Aquamin can be found on the Research Page at aquamin.com.
How is Aquamin sourced?
Marigot sources Aquamin seaweed multi-mineral complex from the pristine waters off the coast of Iceland. We operate under an exclusive license and maintain organic certification for the process, which is closely monitored by third parties. Marigot maintains full control of each step of the harvesting to ensure future generations can benefit from this resource.
Recent Studies and Science-backed evidence on Aquamin:
We are very excited about all the new scientific research on this amazing marine food, and Aquamin continues to be scientifically tested on a variety of platforms to research its ability to help improve bone strength and density, fight osteogenesis, test anti-inflammatory effects, help ease joint health, and more.
An excerpt from this particular study found that “Aquamin may increase range of motion and walking distances in subjects with OA of the knee and may allow partial withdrawal of NSAIDs over 12 weeks of treatment.”
There are so many benefits to taking a sea plant supplement, especially in the cold and flu season. By taking Vita-Sea every day the immune system is strengthened to fight against viruses. Keeping you strong and healthy year around.
