Studies have shown that Gigartina red marine algae are extremely beneficial in treating viral infections due to the presence of sulfated polysaccharides. A study conducted in New Zealand in 2009 wanted to test the link between Gigartina red marine algae and the inactivation of the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV-1). They found that Gigartina red marine algae effectively prevented the virus from infecting the body.
These polysaccharides in Gigartina red marine algae interfere with the ability of the virus to attach to the host cell. A virus requires a host cell as support to replicate itself and cannot do so on its own. As such, with the help of Gigartina red marine algae, the onset of a viral infection can be completely circumvented. Infections like herpes and shingles can be combated by consuming red marine algae, and it’s believed that this Gigartina red marine algae may be able to fight HIV as well.
Other benefits of red marine algae are:
- Strengthen immune system
- Slow down the aging process
- It helps the body fight infection
