Ingredients : Ecklonia Cava 100%
Ecklonia cava is an edible marine brown alga species found in the ocean off Japan and Korea.
Ecklonia cava is an edible brown alga that grows in warm coastal waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Though it has long been used as an herbal remedy for breastfeeding mothers and treatment for various health conditions, it has only recently become more popular outside of Asia. In certain regions of Asia where seaweed and algae are a part of the diet, this brown alga may be eaten whole in soups and salads. In the West, Ecklonia cava is more common as a supplement in pill or powder form. In traditional medicine, it’s used to treat goiters, hemorrhoids, urinary diseases, constipation, and stomach ailments. Because it provides iodine, calcium, and other nutrients, it has also served historically as a supplement for breastfeeding women.
