Marinova is the leading manufacturer and supplier of premium fucoidan extracts to the nutritional sector. Our commitment to developing novel fucoidan extracts for nutraceutical applications has resulted in a range of products that are superior in every respect.
Maritech® Extract – A key factor influencing the therapeutic potential of fucoidan is the method by which it is extracted from the macro algae. Marinova has shown that precipitation, or solvent extraction, can cause degradation of the polysaccharide and result in solvent residues in the final extract. For this reason we have developed a superior extraction process that retains the molecular and bioactive properties of natural fucoidan. Only the water-based Maritech® process used by Marinova can create high-purity, organic fucoidan extracts that remain unadulterated in chemical structure. The Maritech® coldwater and solvent-free process is central to our capabilities and our position as the leader in this field. The Maritech® process also allows the molecular weight parameters of each product to be modified resulting in significantly enhanced efficacy and bioactivity at significantly lower concentrations.
Using the Maritech® process, Marinova produces an extensive range of fucoidan extracts for nutritional applications. The Maritech® range includes the following products:
- Maritech® Fucoidan Extracts: These are high purity (>90%) fucoidan extracts, manufactured from over 10 species of seaweeds. These extracts are certified organic and provide the therapeutic benefits of seaweed in a concentrated form without the odour, taste or colouration.
- Maritech® Synergy Extracts: These high purity extracts are natural complexes of co-extracted marine polyphenols and fucoidan with a guaranteed purity of 90%. This combination provides a stable source of marine polyphenols with prolonged activity and superior health benefits of both components. The extracts have very high antioxidant capacity, as determined by independent analysis.
Marinova’s Maritech® Triple E (Electrolyte Enhanced Extraction) technology allows us to tailor our Maritech® range to create extracts which target specific nutritional applications. By varying the amounts of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc, the functional potential of our Triple E range of products is vast. These extracts provide novelty and efficacy to nutraceutical formulations, particularly in the areas of joint health and sports nutrition.
Using the finest seaweeds from Tasmania, Nova Scotia, Patagonia and the Pacific Islands our products are superior in every respect. They are Organic, Halal and Kosher certified and guaranteed by Marinova to contain the specified fucoidan content. All Maritech® products are suitable for use in capsules, tablets, beverages and gels.
