Its water absorbing properties also aids in waste elimination. Agar absorbs bile, and by doing so, causes the body to dissolve more cholesterol.
  • Digestive Health: The fibre found in Agar Agar has many digestive benefits. It absorbs toxins from the gut and gastrointestinal tract, carrying the toxic waste safely out of the body. Often used as a remedy for constipation, the soluble fibre found in Agar Agar absorbs water in the gut and forms bulk which acts as a natural laxative. Regulating and cleansing the bowel is one of the cornerstones of digestive health.
  • Bone Health: Agar Agar is high in calcium and magnesium, and whilst calcium is famous for its contribution to strong and healthy bones, a lesser known fact is that it must be in balance with magnesium to increase bone density.
  • Brain Health: Agar Agar is a polymer made up of sub-units of the simple sugar molecule galactose which is commonly referred to as “brain sugar”.
