Asparagopsis armata

Asparagopsis armata

Category :

Macro-alga - Red alga - Bonnemaisoniaceae

Natural Habitat :

Originating from Australia, where it is particularly abundant on the southern coast, it is also found in Tasmania and New Zealand. It was accidentally introduced into the Mediterranean and to several European Atlantic coastlines by boats passing through Gibraltar. It currently constitutes a very important population in the North-Western Mediterranean. It often grows epiphytically with other algae, close to the surface of the water and up to 10m in length in moderately choppy, unpolluted waters.

Harvest :

It grows in pale pink pyramid-shaped tufts of 10 to 20cm in length. Some branches are short and simple, others are complex and long. It can also be harpoon-shaped.

Appearance :

Harvesting occurs at the end of Spring on the rocky coasts of the Provence Alps Cotes d'Azur region.

Components :

Its concentration of iodine is 100,000 times more than that of seawater. Its extraction enabled the industrial manufacture of iodine dye until the second half the 20th Century. It is very rich in minerals, vitamins and amino acids.

Biomass-Extracts-Properties :

Algae used for its extracts that: - stimulate skin cell growth and respiration (keratinocytes and fibroblasts). Works in synergy with Undaria pinnatifida

Use :

First Oxygen range.

Characteristics :

This seaweed rapidly spreads its area of distribution, as it produces a toxic substance that wards off herbivorous predators.
