Oxygen is an essential element for our body; almost all activities of the body, from brain function to the elimination of catabolic substances, are regulated by this important element. Therefore, an adequate supply of oxygen to the tissues is of vital importance to avoid irreversible cell damage.
The use of substances that are able to bind and carry oxygen to tissues improves tissue oxygenation leading to an increase in cellular activity and vitality; supplementation with Melcalin O2 is a useful strategy that exploits the natural properties of alginates (compounds that are derived from the wall of brown algae), substances that can bind oxygen and transport it to the tissues effectively ensuring adequate cellular oxygenation, indispensable for the metabolic processes to be conducted physiologically.
