THIS SEAWEED IS CALLEd ECKLONIA CAVA (EC). Ecklonia cava is hardly known about, however, in Japan, there are reports that this particular seaweed has had over $33 million dollars worth of research invested into it… and for good reason!!

Key Facts

EC supports weight-loss via the following mechanisms:
-Decreases the expression of adipogenesis (expansion of fat cells)-related genes.
-Decreases Fatty Acid Synthase (FAS) and adiponectin.
-Increases AMPK/SIRT1 and ↑PPAR-α/CPT-1.
-Reduce leptin levels.
(Kim et al., 2017).

Polyphenols from Ecklonia (such as Eckol and Triphlorethol-A) can reduce oxidative stress in the lungs (Kang et al., 2005).

Eclonia has potent anti-inflammatory effects and may be a useful therapeutic agent for inflammatory diseases (Yang et al., 2014).

EC possesses very potent GABAergic properties, meaning it may act in a similar fashion to alcohol, but instead, significantly improve sleep quality (Minseok et al., 2018). There are other powerful effects in the brain too long for this post.

Ecklonia can promote hair growth significantly (up to 30.8% in 9 days) and may combat hair loss. R

For example, Dioxinodehydroeckol, dieckol, and phlorofurofucoeckol A (3 polyphenols found in E cava) can improve the expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) in human dermal papilla cells (DPCs) and outer root sheath (ORS) cells. R

Ecklonia can also stimulate hair growth via inhibition of 5α-reductase (5AR) activity, which may be useful for combating Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA). R

Phlorotannins from ecklonia can improve the survival of skin cells and may be useful for Atopic Dermatitis (eczema), skin wrinkling, and other skin diseases (via supprepssion of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMP)). R R R

For example, in skin ecklonia can reduce inflammation (via Signal Transducers and Activators of Transcription 1 (STAT1)/Interferon-γ (IFN-γ) inhibition) and also prevent irritation to skin from small particular matter (<PM10), which may be useful against haptens. R R

Ecklonia may act as a sunscreen alternative as it can inhibit damage from UV-B radiation. R R R R

In cosmetics, ecklonia may be useful as a skin whitening agent (as it can inhibit tyrosinase activity). R R

Ecklonia may be useful for preventing and fighting acne as it has antimicrobial activity against  Propionibacteriucm acnes. R

EC is a powerful supplement that can be highly beneficial in certain demographics. Another additional benefit is that it actually outperformed viagra for erection quality. EC deserves much more attention in the health & wellness space.
