Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract offers versatility, efficacy and stability for a wide range of applications. It is ideal for product innovators seeking novel ingredients with a clear point of differentiation.
An extensive dossier of scientific studies shows that Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract may support healthy immune function. Studies have shown that Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract supports the production of the most common type of antibody (Immunoglobulin G or IgG), encourages the mobilisation of stem cells which may assist in overall immune function, supports wound healing gene expression and dampens anti-allergenic properties.
The rapidly expanding dossier of scientific evidence is also fuelling interest in the ability of Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract to support gut and digestive health. Published research shows that Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract has the potential to balance good and bad bacteria, which may in turn support a healthy gut microbiome.
In vitro research has shown Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract may support healthy levels of Sirtuin-1 (SIRT1) - a protein considered an important marker for cell ageing and believed to play key roles in longevity. In vitro research has also demonstrated that Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract can assist in the inhibition of glycation – a biological process that may lead to the stiffening of connective tissue and impaired elasticity.
