PostSubject: What Makes Red Marine Algae So Good for Your Health?   Sun Mar 13, 2011 8:42 am

Red marine algae have been touted as the latest superfood in the past few years, and for good reason. These marine organisms contain vitamins and minerals in concentrations much higher than most known sources of healthy foods. Also, they are rich in sulfated polysaccharides, which for decades have been the subject of research in connection with its purported antimicrobial and antiviral properties. It has been a delicacy in various parts of Asia for centuries, and has also gained much attention for its nutritional value in the West since the 20th century.

What we refer to as red marine algae are actually many different species of algae that are often classified in the same category due to their red coloration. These species belong to the multicellular group now identified as rhodophyta, which in literal sense means red plant. This group also comprises large algae in the form of seaweeds that have become the most investigated among all seaweeds due to their photosynthetic metabolic pathway. In the food industry they are highly valued for the gelatinous substance they produce called agar and other organic compounds widely used as food additives.
