Stress is a reaction to external stimuli that can affect our body: intensive work, important life events (exams, wedding, moving house). According to individuals, stress can manifest in different ways: physical or mental fatigue, anxiety, irritability, sleep disorders or nervousness.
Magnesium is an essential element involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body and is particularly affected by stress periods. Under the action of catecholamine (adrenalin for example) magnesium loss through urine increases, leading to a magnesium deficiency itself resulting in higher sensitivity to stress.
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.
