Seaweeds or sea vegetables,
which rank high as healing foods in many Eastern medicines, are harvested
as a nutritional
supplement in the Arctic and
have been used for centuries in Ireland both as medicines and in
wonderful, slathery but therapeutic seaweed baths.
But now a Northern Irish company, Dolphin
Sea Vegetables, is working with the
University of Ulster on a group of seaweeds whose combined anti-fungal properties
look as though they may prove to be more successful in killing Candida albicans
cells than conventional drug therapies.
The formulation is called Phycoplex and although development is on-going, you
can buy it in its current form direct from Dolphin Sea Vegetables. It is marketed
as a whole superfood and, as a ‘superfood’, it has the advantage
that, while doing battle with the recalcitrant Candida albicans, it is also providing
a very wide range of of high quality micronutrients.
Phycoplex costs £19.99 for a bottle of 60 capsules from www.dolphinseaveg.com 44

As an added bonus, Phycoplex seems to have a pretty dramatic effect on the various
members of the Herpes family.
Dolphin Sea vegetables has another on-going project which is being run with Queen’s
- this one to investigate the possibilities of ‘farming’ seaweeds
under controlled but natural
Three years of laboratory development have now resulted in the successful establishment
of an aqua-farm, which will be able, under natural conditions, to produce commercial
quantities of sea vegetables year round.
