👉🏽THIS SEAWEED IS CALLED…

ECKLONIA CAVA (EC).

💵💵💵30+ MILLION DOLLARS OF RESEARCH:
Ecklonia cava is hardly known about, however, in Japan, there are reports that this particular seaweed has had over $33 million dollars worth of research invested into it… and for good reason!!

🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏾SUPPORTS WEIGHT LOSS:
EC supports weight-loss via the following mechanisms:
-Decreases the expression of adipogenesis (expansion of fat cells)-related genes.
-Decreases Fatty Acid Synthase (FAS) and adiponectin.
-Increases AMPK/SIRT1 and ↑PPAR-α/CPT-1.
-Reduce leptin levels.
(Kim et al., 2017).

😇PROTECTS THE LUNGS:
Polyphenols from Ecklonia (such as Eckol and Triphlorethol-A) can reduce oxidative stress in the lungs (Kang et al., 2005).


🔥LOWERS INFLAMMATION:
Eclonia has potent anti-inflammatory effects and may be a useful therapeutic agent for inflammatory diseases (Yang et al., 2014).

🌝PSYCHOACTIVE PROPERTIES:
EC possesses very potent GABAergic properties, meaning it may act in a similar fashion to alcohol, but instead, significantly improve sleep quality (Minseok et al., 2018). There are other powerful effects in the brain too long for this post.

💁🏼PROMOTES HAIR GROWTH:
Ecklonia can promote hair growth significantly (up to 30.8% in 9 days) and may combat hair loss. R

For example, Dioxinodehydroeckol, dieckol, and phlorofurofucoeckol A (3 polyphenols found in E cava) can improve the expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) in human dermal papilla cells (DPCs) and outer root sheath (ORS) cells. R

Ecklonia can also stimulate hair growth via inhibition of 5α-reductase (5AR) activity, which may be useful for combating Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA). R


✅IMPROVES SKIN HEALTH:
Phlorotannins from ecklonia can improve the survival of skin cells and may be useful for Atopic Dermatitis (eczema), skin wrinkling, and other skin diseases (via supprepssion of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMP)). R R R

For example, in skin ecklonia can reduce inflammation (via Signal Transducers and Activators of Transcription 1 (STAT1)/Interferon-γ (IFN-γ) inhibition) and also prevent irritation to skin from small particular matter (<PM10), which may be useful against haptens. R R

Ecklonia may act as a sunscreen alternative as it can inhibit damage from UV-B radiation. R R R R

In cosmetics, ecklonia may be useful as a skin whitening agent (as it can inhibit tyrosinase activity). R R

Ecklonia may be useful for preventing and fighting acne as it has antimicrobial activity against  Propionibacteriucm acnes. R




💥TAKEAWAY:
EC is a powerful supplement that can be highly beneficial in certain demographics. Another additional benefit is that it actually outperformed viagra for erection quality. EC deserves much more attention in the health & wellness space.
