KELP FROM THE PRISTINE
WATERS OF SOUTH AFRICA
Bo Mar – meaning the “Good Sea” in Esperanto – is specialised in the global trade of marine raw materials.
1. High Quality Dried Kelp (Giant Brown Algae, Ecklonia Maxima), milled and shredded into various sizes (<10mm or >10mm)
2. Liquid Seaweed Concentrate as a growth stimulant, made from the freshly harvested giant brown seaweed Ecklonia Maxima.
With 5x the potency of regular other extracts.
Our seaweed stems from the coast of the western tip of Africa, along the shorelines from South Africa to Namibia. The very cold Benguela comes to those shores from Antarctica and creates a nutrient rich marine environment, causing the kelp to grow fast and constantly. Kelp is classified as a keystone species, which means, it plays a vital part in forming a thriving ecosystem while being one of the highest sustainable materials from a natural source. It is the largest and fastest-growing marine algae or seaweed, and belongs to the brown algae.
The strength of Ecklonia Maxima is based on the high levels of organic gels within its kelp tissue. In addition to the organic gels, kelp has amazing amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids.
Each plant attaches itself to the sea bed with a stalk. Some kelps can grow ½ metre a day and can reach 30 meters in length and together they often form a thick kelp ‘forests’. Kelp forests are found in the temperate and polar coastal regions of the world. Kelp is usually harvested at low tide but often also collected as ‚beach cast’ right off the beach after stormy seas break them loose and wash them ashore
