Studies have shown PC-Ecklonia Cava Extract to be a very robust antioxidant. Antioxidant strength is measured by the amount of rings composing its structure. Flavonoids usually contain three interconnected rings. Green tea catechins contain 4 interconnecting rings whereas PC-Ecklonia Cava has up to 8 interconnected rings making it 10-100 times more powerful to fight off free-radicals than other polyphenols.*
