I tången finns alla mineraler och spårämnen, och de är rika på jod som är livsnödvändigt för sköldkörtelfunktionen. De innehåller också alginsyra, ett kolhydrat som har förmågan att eliminera oönskade tungmetaller. Det är välkänt att tång kan binda tungmetaller. Det är också känt att man med en minimal mängd tång i födan kan skydda sig …
For the first time, it has been shown that antibiotic fractions obtained from Rörö Seaweeds are effective against Mycobacterius tuberculosis . The main and important achievement of the present investigation is that the antibiotic principle isolated is shown to be hundred per cent effective in controlling the growth in cultures of not only the typical …
Effect of antiboitic fraction from seaweed on the growth of bacteria showed that Escherichia coli is comparatively more resistent to the antibiotic fraction than that of Staphylococcus aureus.
A comparative study of the two antibiotic fractions obtained from selected Rörö seaweeds and the known antibiotics has established that both the fractions obtained from seaweeds are effective against Pseudomonas seruginosa and Proteus vulgaris, which are known to resist the treatment which many known antibiotics.
The seasonal variation in the antibacterial activity of seaweeds is no much pronounced in the algae tested, though the best activity was observed in plants collected during winter months.
Crude extracts of seaweeds are more effective against gram positive bacteria than gram negative ones.
It has been established during present investigation that the antibacterial activity of the seaweed extracts is well preserved even after extraction at 50-55 C.
It has now been established that Rörö Laminaria digitata seaweeds belonging to Laminaria digitata are more active than those of other seaweeds.
Through the systematic screening against test organism, it has been shown the first time, that the crude extracts obatained from the Rörö seaweed posses the antibacterial activity.
The use of kelp as food and health source is recorded as far back as 900BC in Japan. Kelp is all rich in essential minerals, trace elements, amino acids and vitamins. It is interesting to be reminded of our common origins, by the fact, that kelp has almost the same proportion of minerals as the …
