  • Ecklonia Cava Extract from Swanson GreenFoods Formulas

  • 98.8% pure -- the purest extract available

  • Strong antioxidant support from algae

Ecklonia Cava Extract from Swanson GreenFoods Formulas is produced from a type of brown algae grown off the coast of Korea and Japan. It features a unique form of polyphenols called phlorotannins that are chemically distinct from all land/plant based polyphenols. Ecklonia Cava is the star of this class of algae-based antioxidants, and it may offer stronger antioxidant benefits than land-based sources like green tea or resveratrol (potentially up to 2 or 3 times the strength). Plus, Swanson 98.8% pure Ecklonia Cava is the purest, water-based extract you can buy.

Ecklonia Cava Extract is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This supplement took me and my doctor by surprise. I was not expecting the benefits I gained when I started taking this. I WISH you still offered the larger packaging and better pricing, but my doctor has ordered me to never stop taking this, and based on my individual benefit from adding it to my daily routine, I never will.....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less effective ecklonia cava Swanson's used to carry a non extract form of this brown seaweed which had a much more than 53 mg. Not sure why they dropped it but I found it not only cheaper but much more effective. I wish they would return to that. This mg amount is very small and incomparable to other effective brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ecklonia Cava I really liked this product. I slept as well as I have in years when I started taking it and it was a great mood stabilizer at least for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME - - - - What I really want, and have been looking for, is authentic Brown Seaweed in food form. I have read so many astounding things about the people in Okinawa, Korea, and Japan who enjoy awesome health, wellness, and fitness into advance ages, and the many articles I've read attribute this to their diet with high percentages of Brown Seaweed. We all see articles every day about this and that food that is supposed to be good for us, and some even super good for us. It always sounds good. Maybe too good to be true. Kind of makes us want to eat those foods to be good to ourselves. Well, I want to add Brown Seaweed to my diet if I can find it, and if it is palatable. I'd like to experience it for myself. Brown Seaweed is available in pill form under a number of different names, and one of those is Ecklonia Cava. So I thought I'd try Ecklonia Cava. I ordered it from Swanson, because as usual Swanson has the best price.. I was dubious about the apparently small 53mg. potency. And apparently my doubts are confirmed. I have noticed none of the wonderfulness I have read about. So, I'm still interested in trying Brown Seaweed as a food, but I can't recommend this 30 capsule size bottle of 53mg. Ecklonia Cava capsules. I tried taking 1, 2, and even 3 capsules a day in my quest for Brown Seaweed 'wonderfulness.' Nothing going on. I won't be buying this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Algae based antioxidant This brown algae with its strong antioxidant support is a good complement to chlorella from green algae that helps eliminate heavy metals. Now that Ecklonia Cava Extract has been marketed for more than two years, a larger size bottle of 60 or 90 soft gels should be made available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's from the sea Most everyone doesn't get the necessary greens in our diets. This is algae based and it's one of my many daily supplements that I will continue to take.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ecklonia Cava Extract Take this product for the antioxidant property’s. I take it with 2 Calamari, 1 Vitamin D3 & 1 CoQ10 twice daily. The reason I gave it a 2 on convenience is it only comes in 30 caps need to be up about 180

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice suprise I have been taking the product for a couple of weeks. The thing that is different with me is less craving for food. My mood is calmer too. These aren't the reason I purchase this item though. This is fine with me just an added plus. I will see down the road if anything else is noticed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Alternative to Fucoidan This is Brown Sea Algae, and it shares many health benefits with Brown Seaweed. There are five species of Brown Seaweed that are rich in Polysaccharides called Fucoids. You can get an extract of Fucoidan, or get the ground up plant in full spectrum Bladderwrack and Wakame. I get a very nice lift from a Swanson Fucoidan and a Bladderwrack in the morning that I did not get from Ecklonaia Cava. Although there are many good reviews for this product, I recommend Brown Seaweed to my friends instead...the most economical being Swanson full spectrum Bladderwrack, and the high end being Dr.'s Best Fucoidan. Bladderwrack has Alginates which carry out heavy metals. It is not unusual to feel light headed the first few days you start it, so I recommend to my friends that they begin before bed, and after a few days, take it in the morning for its rejuvenating benefits plus an added lift. There is an interesting youtube video testimonial called What Fucoidan Has Done For Me, which can be found by a Google search.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I started taking this product with no idea of what it would do. After a week of taking it, I have a better overall feeling, general well being and doesn't bother me when I take it. I will give it another month before I consider buying more as I expected more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality product Ecklonia Cava has been tested to be one of the most effective antioxidants. The Swanson brand is one of the purest. The only fault that I can find is that the suggested dosage is too small. The best results require the dosage to be doubled. Even doubling the dosage still makes the Swanson brand an excellent value. Until something better comes along this product will remain a staple in my supplement regimine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from thumbs up I added this supplement to help with my cardio and since I've been taking it my endurance has increased in the gym

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, good value The Ecklonia Cava extract is the best form of the brown seaweed. The amount of 53 mg extract is not sufficient to acquire the full effectiveness the seaweed can provide so the daily use should be doubled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suppose to be good I have read about how high potency Ecklonia Cava Extract (Brown Seaweed) taken together with Calamari Oil and Vitamin D-3 work as an anti-aging benefit. I've been taking this combination for about a year and plan to continue. I am not sure of its effectiveness, perhaps because I have not taken it a part from all my supplements. Swanson offers a quality product for the price and potency.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy by trusted brand name This was highly recommended by several health food companies. Decided to try the supplement and will only purchase from Swanson for its value, purity and services.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SWANSON .... None better Just finished my first order of Ecklonia Cava from Swanson. My product review, above, speaks for itself. However, as I am prone to ramble, let me just say that Swanson has a customer for life based on the experience. My reorders should be affirmation of my total satisfaction!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value Ecklonia cava is a great overall health tonic for me. Most brands are too expensive to take regularly. The Swanson brand is such a great value that I can afford to add it to my supplement regime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ecklonia Cava Extract Overall a good product, but not as potent as others. Need to take more for the same effectiveness, but works well and overall a good value.
