BioPure’s PC-Ecklonia Cava is extracted from the brown algae Ecklonia Cava (Luminariaceae japonica) which is grown in deep, cold, pure ocean waters off the coast of Korea, China and Japan. BioPure’s PC-Ecklonia Cava Extract is a potent source of polyphenolic compounds. Naturally rich in iodine, manitol, fucoidan, alginates, fucoxanthin, lamarin, eckol and dieckol PC-Ecklonia Cava also contains all of the 72 different trace minerals.
Studies have shown PC-Ecklonia Cava Extract to be a very robust antioxidant. Antioxidant strength is measured by the amount of rings composing its structure. Flavonoids usually contain three interconnected rings. Green tea catechins contain 4 interconnecting rings whereas PC-Ecklonia Cava has up to 8 interconnected rings making it 10-100 times more powerful to fight off free-radicals than other polyphenols.*
BioPure’s PC-Ecklonia Cava Extract is a 98.8% pure extract of this algae, providing a potent source of polyphenolic compounds and all of the 72 different trace minerals.* BioPure’s PC-Ecklonia Cava Extract has a remarkably high antioxidant (ORAC) value of 8300, and a half-life of 12-14 hours.
