ORIGIN

The Chondrus crispus red algae, a natural botanical ingredient

 

 

 

Researchers have developed a natural botanical ingredient by observing how wild life in the Subarctic Atlantic zone cope with winter conditions (low temperatures and weak luminosity).

This ingredient gets its strength and unique properties from this environment.

MODE OF ACTION

A highly concentrated form of energy

 

 

The Chondrus crispus algae accumulates L-citrullyl-L-arginine and other valuable metabolites (L-Citrulline, L-Gigartinine, taurine, glutamate, etc.) with winter conditions, a natural and stable dipeptide rich in nitrogen and essential for energy production.

 

 

 

TECHNOLOGY

An exclusive harvesting conditions for a unique ingredient

 

Naturally, the red algae accumulates valuable metabolites (L-citrullyl-L-arginine, L-Gigartinine, Taurine, Glutamate, L-Citrulline) with winter conditions4
