ADDITIONAL ANALYTICAL INFORMATION

The proprietary blend of our SOURCE® and Micro-MAX® micronutrients is derived from the most nutrient dense natural materials available--the ocean's herbs-- the seaweeds.

Unlike our increasingly trace mineral bankrupt agricultural soils, the growing medium for the seaweeds is the oceans' waters, nature's richest storehouse of nutrient building blocks.

Exciting research is concentrating on the extraordinary natural compounds in the seaweeds and their applications for human health. These include (but are not limited to!) the fucans (sulfated polysaccharides), phytochemicals, oligosaccharides and various radical scavenging antioxidants. Research has pointed to these and other compounds as having significant anti-tumor, antiviral, antigenotoxic and anti-mutagenic activity. As research in the future years continues to unlock "the secrets of seaweeds", we predict that this material will come to be recognized as the single most potent, useful, bio-active natural plant material on earth.
