Algae are a broad variety of photosynthetically active organisms, that generate their biomass from carbon dioxide, water and minerals. Due to their maritime origin, algae are rich in macro- and microelements and vitamins. In addition, the brown algae Ascophyllum nodosum MAXASCO is based on, is rich in natural marine polysaccharides, such as Alginate, the ß-Glucan Laminarin and Fucoidan. These components in conjunction with marine tannins are known to have prebiotic and immune-modulating effects, while the sulfated polysaccharide Ascophyllan is particularly known for its antimicrobial properties.

PROVITA SUPPLEMENTS has successfully introduced a novel technology, unlocking the full spectrum of activities of marine plant nutrients from Ascophyllum nodosum. After harvest from the Celtic Sea, the algae are processed carefully, undergoing a standardized swelling process and are ground and dried afterwards. The result is a granulated material with excellent mixing properties for convenient incorporation to any type of feed or premix. Furthermore, the processing positively influences the rheological properties of the algae, with the soluble fiber components Laminarin, Alginate and Fucoidan linked with absorption-, retention- and swelling behavior of the digesta, increasing its homogeneity and viscosity. Supplementation of MAXASCO facilitates the contact of feed components with digestive enzymes, helping to improve digestive performance.
