Seanol is a purified, high potency extract of Ecklonia cava, a marine brown algae that grows in the seas off the cost of Japan and Korea. Unlike most all of the land based, hydrophylic ( watersoluble ) polyphenols, including catechins and EGCG from green tea extract, antioxidants from bilberry and blueberry, grape seed extracts, resveratrol, and pygnogenol from bark of French pine, Seanol is hydrophobic ( not soluble in water ) and the most important - lipophylic-(fat soluble).
This gives the Seanol the unique ability to be easily absorbed by the all types of human cells, it can be concentrated in them, even go through blood-brain barrier, helping to protect and improve memory, cognitive function and mental clarity.
In addition, the lipophylic properties of the Seanol allow it to remain in the body up to 12 hours, in contrast to the very short half- life of the hydrophilic ( water soluble ) land -based polyphenol sources.
The ORAC- ( Oxygen Radical Absorbence Capacity) score for antioxidation potential (8300) of Seanol is much, much higher than most land -based polyphenols, including resveratrol.
Seanol also has anti-inflammatory properties, that help to prevent and elleviate inflammatory and degenerative processes in all cells, tissues and organs, including brain, that will help with prevention and treatment of Alzheimer disease, cardiovascular system, CAD, eyes. That permits to prevent macular degeneration-the most common cause of blindness in this country, cataracts, glaucoma, myopia, presbyopia, nyctalopia ( night blindness).
Seanol is molecularly distinct from the land-based polyphenols, there are 13 active polyphenols in Seanol structure, which gives it its unique qualities.
Strong scientific data ( 14 years of animal, in-vitro, in -vivo and human clinical studies ) show that Seanol has been proven to provide:
Strong antioxidant scavenging of lipids and cholesterol, free radicals in the cardiovascular system, reducing the risk of stroke, MI, vasculitis.
Strong anti-plasmin inhibition effect, making blood thinner and normalizing blood flow, lowering high blood pressure and preventing blood clots.
Significant anti-inflammatory effect, that helps with prevention and alleviation of degenerative arthritis, vasculitis, MS, neuropathy.
Significant analgesic effect by inhibiting COX enzymes, this will benefit all Fibromyalgia, patients, also patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Seanol will be effective in weight management programs due to its ability to down-regulation (60%) of specific enzyme responsible for fat-lipids metabolism.
Depending on the therapeutic application examined, Seanol's in -vivo potency tends to be from 100 to 1000 times more than a similar quality of the land -based polyphenols, resulting from its higherantioxidant potential and much greater bio-availability -due to fat soluble properties.
Think about it, for me it sound very well, may be we have to give it a try!
Have a nice month, if you want to discuss something particular, e-mail me.
