Wakame and Mekabu seaweed powder is derived from the seaweed species Undaria Pinnatifida. In many Asian cultures this particular seaweed species has been a treasured food item for centuries with some saying that it is the key to living a long and healthy life.
Key Benefits1. Immune support
Undaria Pinnatifida contains high levels of unique phytonutrients including fucoidans and alginates which are produced to protect the sea vegetable from its harsh marine environment. Research has shown these powerful nutrients to be very beneficial to the human immune system as they are capable of fighting off pathogens as well as inhibit the growth and spread of unhealthy cells within the body. This allows for a strong immune system which is essential for the body to ward off common and more serious ailments.2. Fights free radicals
It is well known that free radicals can lead to excessive inflammation within the body leading to premature aging, joint issues as well as an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and neurological conditions. Research has shown that Undaria seaweed is able to reduce free radicals within the body.
