*The unique ability of Laminaria Algae molecules is to protect and repair cells. Living in the Iroise Sea, this Algae have developed a defense system enabling it to resist the extreme conditions such as storms, ocean currents and very high tides. The fucoidan structure in the cell walls of the Laminaria plays a protective and restorative role in rebuilding the tissues after a storm.
In-Vitro testing demonstrated that Laminaria Algae stimulates Type 1 Collagen synthesis and fibroblast proliferation. The fucoidans blocking the enzymes responsible for the deterioration of the extracellular matrix as well as the pro-inflammatory cytokines which damage the collagen.
