A patented, super-antioxidant complex found in 100% organic Ecklonia cava brown ocean algae. It does something for everything.
The extract is hydrophobic, meaning it’s not water-soluble, but fat-soluble. As a result it can stay in the body for up to 12 hours –water-soluble nutrients, such as vitamin C and land-based polyphenols, often only stick around for 30 minutes or so. Clearly, EC Extract works harder for longer. Plus it can cross the blood-brain barrier and have an effect in the brain.
Polyphenols and phlorotannins are known families of natural antioxidants. Polyphenols are made up of multiple interconnected phenol rings – and more rings mean more electrons can be absorbed from toxic free radicals. While other known antioxidants might have two or four rings a piece, the patented marine polyphenols in EC Extract have up to 13 active rings each, and therefore way more antioxidant power. Phlorotannins on the other hand are only found in brown algae and have been shown to reduce atherosclerosis and promote cardiovascular health. Among other things.
Super free-radical grabbing skills, coupled with 12-hour staying power make the antioxidants in this extract particularly good at helping to protect and support multiple systems. Research suggests that EC Extract is actually 10 to 100 times stronger than similar quantities of land-based polyphenols and other antioxidants – even resveratrol and green tea catechins.
Clinical studies have found no side-effects associated with EC Extract treatment for a range of conditions at a range of doses.
NEURAL FUNCTION AND MEMORY
In a 2007 study from Korea’s Mirae Medical Foundation, athletes who drank an EC Extract drink daily experienced big improvements in fitness and endurance. Like what? Like a 10.2% increase in VO2 max, a 19% drop in resting heart rate and a 9.9% improvement in time to exhaustion. Nice.
For maintenance, take 2 capsules daily (800mg Ecklonia Cava Extract). This can be increased to 2 capsules twice a day (1 600mg Extract), or up to a maximum dose of 3 capsules four times daily. Consult your health care practitioner.
