Sea urchins exist on Earth for 500 million years due to the fact that their bodies have learned to produce a huge amount of antioxidants and substances that restore the immune system. Among sea urchins there are long-livers, whose age reaches 200 years, and their organism practically does not differ from the young.
Sea urchin caviar is a powerful antioxidant that slows the aging of the body; used for the prevention of cancer and to reduce side effects during radiation and chemotherapy; improves vision, memory and increases concentration.
The sea urchin roe contains many biologically active substances (BAS):
- Phospholipids, including lecithin – slow down the aging of cell membranes, reduce the effects of inflammation and necrosis in the liver cells, improve blood biochemical parameters; reduce fatty liver, reduce the risk of fibrosis and cirrhosis of the liver; provide nutrition to the human nervous system.
- Lecithin isvital to all cells of the body: it participates in the transmission of nerve impulses, increases efficiency, is a hepatoprotector, improves the gastrointestinal tract.
- Polyunsaturated acids (PUFA) Omega 3 and Omega 6prevent the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in blood vessels and the formation of blood clots, which serves as an effective prevention of diseases of the cardiovascular system.
- Carotenoids– affect the endocrine system, regulate reproductive processes.
- Vitamins of group A(20 times more than at the root of ginseng), B, E, C, D, B1, B2, B12, PP, K1.
- Macro – and trace elements in an easily digestible form:iodine, necessary for the thyroid gland, iron, copper, cobalt, calcium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus.
- Proteins(18-20%) – contain essential amino acids, including phenylalanine, which improves vision, memory and attention due to better transmission of the nerve impulse between cells.
- Nucleic acids– prevent aging of the body , slow down the process of cell degeneration. By consuming a sufficient amount of nucleic acids, you can look 10 years younger than your age.
