Vibrant Health Gigartina Red Marine Algae contains a special blend of 5 wild strains of Gigartina red marine algae (skottsbergi, tenella, stellata and 2 others). Vibrant Health Gigartina Red Marine Algae provides the best source of sulfated polysaccharides, which are known to be natural immune support agents and inhibit certain viruses.
Immune Support from the Sea
Vibrant Health knows that sufficient rest together with a healthful diet and exercise can do much to maintain a robust immune system. Sulfated polysaccharides from the sea can help.
Is There Anything Else We Can Do?
Botanical science has discovered and identified a substantial number of substances and compounds from plants that can improve functions of the human immune response. They have probably been playing that supporting role as part of the human diet for millennia. One specialized group of immune enhancing substances is the sulfated polysaccharides, sulfur containing complex sugars found most notably in a select group of sea plants..
Where Do We Find Them? What Do They Do?
Sulfated polysaccharides can make up a significant portion of the biomass of certain large leaf algae in the sea. More than 25 strains of Red Marine Algae (RMA) are known to contain significant amounts of sulfated polysaccharides. Difficulty lies in finding the species of RMA that are the richest sources, for the ability to support and strengthen immune response varies greatly related to the content of sulfated polysaccharides. The more, the better.
Sulfated polysaccharides are complex sugars that contain sulfur. Carrageenan and other gel-like substances are members of this family of polysaccharides. Research has isolated and identified a number of sulfated polysaccharides from sea plants that improve immune function. In addition, several RMAs of the family Gigartinaceae have been identified as the richest sources of sulfated polysaccharides.
As a dietary supplement, take four (4) capsules daily on an empty stomach, or more as directed by a health professional.
