The immune system is the body’s natural defence system againt external aggressions: viruses and bacteria in particular. When a foreign element enters our organism, a series of reactions takes place in an attempt to stop the aggression rapidly.
However, the effectiveness of the immune respons is linked to our lifestyle: stress, lack of sleep, unbalaced diet or oxidative stress are all factors that weaken our immune system and make our body more sensitive to external aggressions. Maintaining a healthy immune system is important to stay fit and healthy all year long.
Algae appeared billion years ago. They are categorized in three families: green algae (chlorophyceae), red algae (rhodophyceae) and brown algae (phaeophyceae).
They adapted through time to the extreme conditions they live in: variation of temperature and luminosity, tides, waves.
By adapting to these extreme conditions, algae have developed unique compounds, not found in terrestrial plants that make up most of their benefits:
- Being rootless, marine algae draw the minerals and trace elements required for their development from the sea: thus, they become a real seatwater concentrate.
- Resulting from billion years of evolution, algae have been used for millennia all over the world as food, herbal medicine or in cosmetics, demonstrating their universal and timeless benefits.
- Our ancestors already understood all the benefits of marine algae by using this superfood in their daily diet.
