Gigartina - Red Marine Algae

Gigartina Red Marine Algae is an immune support supplement containing sulphated polysaccharides from a strain of red marine algae called gigartina skottsbergii. Like other ocean-growing vegetables, red marine algae are understood to have many benefits; of particular note is their ability to help inhibit certain viruses.

The algae's potent antiviral properties make it a popular natural remedy; indeed, it has been used for decades in traditional Chinese medicine.

Nature's Richest Source of Sulphated Polysaccharides

Sulphated polysaccharides are complex sugars that contain sulfur. More than 25 strains of red marine algae (RMA) are known to contain significant amounts of sulphated polysaccharides, a number of which improve immune function. Strains of gigartina algae are the best known source of supplemental sulphated polysaccharides.

Our Gigartina RMA is the result of an exhaustive search among red marine algae for the kind with the most sulphated polysaccharides; Gigartina skottsbergii is the most actively potent strain. Its sulphated polysaccharide content is concentrated up to a minimum of 30% in the gigartina skottsbergii extract used in our capsules.

Four capsules deliver one gram of the algae and at least 300 mg of beneficial sulphated polysaccharides – without the use of any excipients. Red marine algae also contains a high level of plant sterols and sterolins. These fatty alcohols and alcohol-sugar complexes may stimulate the human immune response even though only a small fraction (2%-4%) of plant sterols are ever absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract.

It is possible, then, that Gigartina RMA provides a two-pronged stimulus to the immune response. The recommended serving is four capsules daily on an empty stomach. One bottle contains 120 vegetable capsules.

Red marine algae has for many years been part of the staple diet of many cultures, particularly Japanese and Chinese. These cultures appreciate its health benefits and in particular its immune support. Red Marine Algae is believed to support:

  • Immune System (antiviral helps prevent herpes outbreaks)
  • Digestive System (improves digestion and enhances metabolism)
  • Weight loss by curbing appetite
  • Lowering of cholesterol

Although the immune-boosting support of red marine algae is believed to be due to its sulphated polysaccharides, it is also known to contain sterols and sterolins. These complexes help to stimulate human immune response even though only a small percentage are absorbed in the gastro-intestinal tract. This could further amplify the beneficial immune-boosting properties of the Gigartina red marine algae.

Vibrant Health's Gigartina red marine algae is simply the encapsulated powder of the leaves of the 5 strains of algae from the algae family Gigartinaceae. Vibrant Health are specialist formulators of quality green supplements and other cutting-edge nutritional support products.
