Seanol packs a powerful antioxidant punch. 
 
Stronger than alpha lipoic acid, seanol removes harmful toxins, quenches free radicals in the brain and supports healthy blood lipids.

    

Antioxidants have taken over the supplement world. They are a means of restoring wellbeing, diminishing wrinkles, and removing signs of aging from the face.

 
Seanol is one such antioxidant, extracted from brown algae that originate in the cold, unforgiving waters of the ocean. It is increasing in popularity due to its powerful antioxidant abilities.

 

It contains some plant chemicals that are fat-soluble and others that are water soluble in order to effectively target and eliminate a wide array of dangerous molecules in the body responsible for aging and skin disorders. Seanol also has a much longer-lasting effect than most other antioxidants on the market today. Studies have revealed that the time it takes for seanol to be metabolized or disintegrate is much longer than the other antioxidants from sea products like kelp and seaweed-based supplements.

 

Unlike many antioxidant supplements, seanol targets several types of harmful molecules and toxins. It has an unsurpassed ability to get rid of damaging free radicals that are formed from normal metabolism, as well as the pesticides, toxins, pollution and cigarette smoke people are exposed to daily. Seanol is equally effective against reactive oxygen species, another group of damaging molecules.

 

Most damaging molecules destroy the cells exposed to them the most. Examples of these would be like the cells lining the nasal cavities and digestive tract. Seanol thus helps to ensure longevity of these extremely important cells.

 

Seanol also helps to protect against other compounds. One notable one is the oxidized form of LDL. People diagnosed with high cholesterol have elevated levels of LDL in the blood, a low-density lipid or fat that is chemically changed by exposure to oxygen. These high levels of oxidized LDL in the blood are highly associated with coronary artery disease and plaque build-up along the walls of the arteries. Seanol can help prevent LDL from oxidation, preventing it from becoming a danger.

 

Seanol is a natural algal extract with a multitude of antioxidant properties, making it a highly sought after antioxidant supplement.
