Kelpin® is an extract from brown sea weed, which is harvested in the cold waters of the northwestern Pacific. Brown seaweed is rich in nutrients and has a particularly high vitamin content. Furthermore, this sea weed has a high iodine and alginate share. Especially this last component is considered to have unique detoxification effects for the human organism.
In many countries brown seaweed (laminaria japonica) is used as a general and important tonic. The Japanese eat great quantities of seaweed every day and recent studies suggest that a high daily intake of brown seaweed has numerous positive effects on health and wellbeing. This seems to be the reason why some «Western» diseases are much rarer there than in Europe, for example. Among them are in particular obesity, heart diseases, hypertension and respiratory complaints, rheumatism, arthritis, diseases of the thyroid, infectious diseases, breast cancer, constipation and other gastrointestinal complaints.
The most important active ingredients of Kelpin® are alginates, which make up 40 to 60 percent of this seaweed product. From a chemical point of view alginates are the salts of alginic acid which in itself is a colloidal mass produced from algae. Alginic acid is a highly molecular polyuronide and is used in medicine, and in the pharmaceutical and foodstuff industries as a binding, emulsifying and thickening agent. The most important effect of alginates is the absorption of toxins (heavy metals and radioactive elements), which are absorbed by alginates in an ideal manner and subsequently excreted.
Protection against heavy metals and radioactive elements (mercury, strontium, barium, cesium, etc.): these contaminants are bound by the unique structure of the alginates and excreted. This mode of action of the alginates, however, does not impair in any way the resorption of indispensable minerals such as calcium or magnesium.
Important iodine source for the body: laminaria japonica have a remarkable iodine content. This trace element has important functions for the metabolism and for the function of the thyroid gland.
Positive effects on the blood fat values: scientific studies could prove that alginates, due to their pectin-like consistency, bind cholesterol and other lipids in the gastrointestinal tract and in this way prevent their resorption. Therefore, a regular intake of alginates leads to a lowering of the cholesterol and triglyceride values in the blood.
Prevention of increased blood sugar values: this effect is caused by two mechanisms: on the one hand, alginates binds saccharides in the stomach and in the intestine to such a high extent that the carbohydrates cannot be digested and, on the other hand, brown seaweed also contains specific trace elements (e. g. chromium) which the metabolism requires for active blood sugar control.
Inhibition of the growth of cancer cells: a further interesting component of brown seaweed is fucoidan – a polysaccharide complex contained in laminaria japonica in great quantities. Fucoidan induces cancer cells to destroy themselves (apoptosis).
Strengthening of the immune system: according to research results, brown seaweed has promising effects on the entire immune system. Apart from the direct effects of fucoidan on cancer cells, this seaweed also helps in many viral infections.
Positive effects on health and wellbeing generally: by ingesting brown seaweed or Kelpin®, our body is supplied with various different vitamins as well as macro and micro elements (calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, iron, iodine, etc.). Not least for this reason, brown seaweed has been known for centuries to have unique effects on health and beauty (increases the growth of hair and nails).
The preparation Kelpin® makes available the invigorating, health-promoting and detoxifying effects of brown seaweed in a concentrated form. For Kelpin® is not just a simple extract of the dried seaweed. The reason for this is the elaborate and gentle production process: to make Kelpin®, only the central vein of the seaweed is used, which is rich in the valuable components. Therefore, about 40 kilograms of fresh seaweed are needed to produce 1 kilogram of Kelpin®.
When processing brown seaweed into an efficacious concentration, it is especially important to first and foremost provide for the gentle treatment of the raw material. Therefore, the manufacturers of Kelpin® ensure that during the drying process the temperature of 80 °C is never exceeded while other seaweed concentrates available on the market are often treated at a temperature of more than 100 °C. This is the reason why important natural microelements, which would be destroyed at higher temperatures, are preserved in Kelpin®. This manufacturing process makes Kelpin® the most valuable and efficacious seaweed product presently available.
