What is Seanol®?
Seanol® is a formulation of various compounds extracted from brown seaweed called Ecklonia cava. These compounds, known as polyphenols, have bioactive properties that have each been extensively studied and tested in human trials.
Ecklonia cava lives in the deep waters on the coast of Jeju Island, South Korea, and Botamedi's proprietary technology purifies Seanol® and removes iodine, heavy metals, and other impurities.
Already established in the scientific community to have multiple therapeutic properties, Seanol® is growing in demand as nutritional supplements in the US, Europe and Korea, and there is ongoing research to develop Seanol® into a pharmaceutical drug to treat brain degeneration.
The reverse-aging ingredient
Seanol®'s beneficial effects include anti-oxidation and anti-inflammation. Its multipotency comes from the unique chemical structures of the 14 compounds that make up Seanol®. Scientifically known as polyphenols, similar compounds found in terrestrial plants are known to prevent cancer, cardiovascular diseases, microbial infection and UV damage. Seanol® has been shown to be many times more effective than the phytonutrients found in terrestrial plants. Seanol®'s polyphenols are carefully extracted from brown kelp using patented technology to preserve their biochemical structure and activity.
What makes it so effective?
First, Seanol® is a super-antioxidant. When applied to skin, recent studies have shown that it protects skin cells from oxidative stress, which causes wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and dryness. Seanol® directly absorbs oxygen radicals to prevent them from causing oxidative stress and damaging skin cells as well as other internal organs. Its Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity is more than 30 times higher than gogi berries.
Research also shows that Seanol® inhibits the NF-kB complex, the master controller of inflammation in the body. Seanol® soothes inflammation in the brain, kidney, gums and joints, and works magically on the skin to boost healing of scars, pain, swelling, redness and irritation.
Seanol® also has anti-microbial effects against acne-causing bacteria and fungi.
Has Seanol® been tested?
Seanol® has been certified as a new dietary ingredient by the US, Europe, Ireland and Korea FDAs. It has also received authorization from the US FDA to begin testing as a new drug. Furthermore, it has been certified as a health functional ingredient that helps control blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels by the Korea FDA.
What's more, to be certified as a safe ingredient by the FDA, Seanol® was first tested to have a high degree purity, without any iodine and heavy metal contamination.
Proven to be effective
Over the last twenty years, scientists have built a library of evidence showing how exactly Seanol® benefits the body. (Click here to see the entire database of scientific publications.) Over 60 million USD has been invested into this research, which was only possible because positive results about Seanol® were discovered time and time again.
