  4. Polysaccharides and Sterols

The immune support benefits of RMA are presumed to be locked in their content of sulfated polysaccharides as explained above. In addition, red macro algae are known to contain a high level of plant sterols and sterolins. These fatty alcohols and alcohol-sugar complexes are now known to stimulate the human immune response even though only a small fraction (2%-4%) of plant sterols are ever absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. It is possible then that Gigartina RMA provides a two-pronged stimulus to the immune response.

The five species of wild harvested family Gigartinaceae red marine algae in this product provide a rich source of sulfated polysaccharides.
