The 1st product ALGOSELEN® propose a highly efficient combination of proteins, vitamins, pigment (phycocyanine), PUFA, enriched with organic selenium. Organic Sélénium storage in proteins enables a controlled release of selenium to deal with an oxidative status imbalance or other types of cellular stress. ALGOSELEN® combines the benefits of microalgae with the proven benefits of selenium in its organic form and plays a role in the normal functioning of the thyroid, improving the immune function and sperm production, as well as preventing oxidative stress.
The first runs of production have been successful in Europe with highly relevant partners. Product is already commercialized from early 2017 in France and is available for Europe
The 2nd product OLÏSE® is the first ever oil with a high DHA and organic selenium content. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) that is vital for brain development and function as well as for eyesight, while selenium is essential for normal endocrine and immune system function. OLÏSE® combines the health benefits of both DHA and organic selenium.
OLÏSE® is a result of the fermentation of a microalgae (protist) in the presence of appropriate forms of selenium. The process is already at a scaling-up phase. To ensure the timely availability of the products to consumers, the company plans to sign licensing and partnership agreements to produce and market the product.
