Still dealing with the flu?
Still dealing with the flu? Chest cold? Coughing?
We suggest a second consideration of Weight-Less.
What possible food has powerful anti-microbial abilities against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and of course, promotes weight-loss, contains antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, and antitumor properties? AND all this, plus, insanely high ORAC antioxidant?
Brown algae, from the fucaceae family!
Weight Less is composed of two brown algae from the Fucaceae family: Ascophyllum nodosum, known as kelp, and Fucus vesiculosus, or bladderwrack. Pholorotannins extracted from these algae show some of the highest and richest phenolic content, performing many biological activities (Catarino, Silva, & Cardoso, 2017).
Sandsdalen et al. (2003) has shown that a fucophlorethol derivative isolated from F. vesiculosus (bladderwrack) has a potent antimicrobial against Gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Gram-negative bacteria, such as Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, reducing their growth by 85% compared to controls.
A purified phlorotannin extract of A. nodosum is also shown to have potent anti-microbial properties against E. coli (Wang at al., 2009).
Together with 7 Keto, Weight-Less is a smart tool for immune boosting during the flu season. Boost treatment with Garlic and No 7.
