why you need marine algae

Recent research has confirmed that marine algae (seaweed) can be a valuable supplement to the human diet. In the unpolluted sea environment algae are able to absorb trace elements, minerals, salts and other nutrients. Many of the same nutrients are often lacking in people´s daily diet because of insufficient variation in our choice of food. In modern commerce vegetable fruit and meat products may have these nutrients depleted by inappropnate cultivation or handling practises. Marine algae in addition to providing important natural fibres can supplement deficiencies in our diet e.g. of calcium, potassium, selenium, silicon, vitamins and the anti-oxidant Q10 and Omega3. However, these are not the only benefits. Recent health studies and environmental reports have raised new concern about occurrence in food products as well as in the environment of metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and even radioactive strontium, and their effects on the body. Scientists have known for a long time that alginates, which are the main component of marine algae have an amazing ability to assist the elimination of harmful heavy metals from the body. Swedish clinical research has shown that the sugars contained in the algae have a beneficial effect on the diumal glucose index curve, and also that algal extracts lower the cholesterol levels in the blood.

7 important things

  1. reduces excessive blood cholesterol
  2. improves action of the vascular system, including the heart
  3. stabilises the balance of salts and micro-elements;
  4. prevents uptake of heavy metals and radioisotopes (e.g. cadmium, cobalt, lead, mercury, strontium) and also
  5. reduces the body´s levels of such substances, if already accumulated
  6. increases endurance and overall physical performance
  7. increases the shelf-life of bread baked with this ingredient

Hej jag kallas för Clas, Classe, ClasGöran eller CG och har forskat på havsalger sedan 1974. Jag har dykt i havet och plockat upp havsalger för att kunna använda dem som functional food, kostillskott och fodertillskott. Havsalger eller seaweed eller kelp som de också kallas ger dig ett starkt tillskott av de nyttiga ämnen du behöver, samtidigt som du får ett skydd mot onyttiga ämnen.
