The planet's oceans are the birthplace of all life. It makes sense that the health giving properties of its aqueous mineral solution (known as seawater) and the plants that live in it would be imbued with life sustaining elements. Even our blood mimics the mineral composition of ocean water.
Eidon BSE (Brown Seaweed Extract) is a pure whole food supplement made from the brown seaweed Lamanaria. It is ecologically harvested in the remote, pristine ocean waters of Patagonia and is concentrated utilizing a highly specialized cold temperature extraction process.
Current research on brown seaweed, better known as kelp, shows a high mineral nutrient content of Iodine, Selenium, Calcium, Potassium, as well as vitamins, including B-12. And it is known as a medicinal food for the thyroid gland, due to the high amount of Iodine it contains.
BSE is a storehouse for immune enhancing *fucoidan (Fucoxanthin). The most active ingredient in Fucoidan is fucose, which is a sulfated polysaccharide (complex sugar molecule) that is very important for its function in communication from one cell to another cell via glycoproteins and glycolipids. In mice, fucoxanthin was found to reduce abdominal fat, improve insulin resistance and lower blood glucose.
*Fucoxanthin is a fat soluble carotenoid similar to lutein or lycopene found in several edible varieties of seaweed, including kelp or kombu (Laminaria species).
BSE is processed and packaged in the United States. Each bottle contains 90 capsules - 500mg each.
