Modern science believes that the first life appeared in the ocean. That's why seafood has amazing healing properties - in fact, we are eating the most natural food.

Doctors and biologists have proven that algae are champions in terms of active substance content. In ancient times, Chinese healers treated malignant tumors with algae. In India, this product has been used to treat diseases of the endocrine glands.

In the Far North, seaweed was the favorite source of vitamins and minerals. It seems that much can be attributed to simple beliefs, but modern research confirms that this product resembles human blood in terms of the qualitative and quantitative content of macro- and microelements. Is this not the best confirmation of the evolutionary connection with the sea?

Algae contain a huge amount of lipids rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, chlorophyll, glucans, lignins, phenolic compounds, vitamins, enzymes and dietary fiber. You simply won't find a better source of iodine! Thanks to an amazing combination of elements, algae are able to remove heavy metal ions from internal organs and even treat radiation sickness. Algae have been shown to have much greater biological activity than land plants.


We don't have to look far for examples - Eskimos, who are forced to eat algae due to the lack of vegetation in cold climates, are much less likely to get cancer. Rheumatism, diabetes or cardiovascular disease are also rare in this nation. Scientists say this is due to the high content of polyunsaturated acids in their diet.

Even in algae there is a huge amount of immunomodulating substances. It helps the body to fight colds, fungal and viral diseases. A large amount of vitamins makes cell membranes more resistant to external influences, improves the functioning of all organs and as a result slows down the aging process. Vitamins of groups A, D, C, K, PP, B are absolutely necessary for normal life.

Algae will help you get the lack of these vitamins. Thanks to folic and pantothenic acid, algae have unique cosmetic properties, strengthen the structure of nails and hair, improve the color and elasticity of the skin. This is why pharmaceutical companies so often use algae as part of nutritional supplements, vitamins and medical cosmetics.

The uniqueness of the composition of algae can be proven by a single fact - this product contains all the minerals, amino acids and vitamins necessary for a person.
