What is Doctor’s Best FibroBoost with Seanol? Doctor’s Best FibroBoost supports heart health, memory function, joint health and healthy metabolism. It contains Seanol, a unique polyphenol complex from brown algae with strong antioxidant properties. Seanol contains hydrophobic compounds that are able to cross the blood-brain barrier, allowing for antioxidant support of the brain and neural tissues. How does it work? Heart Health: As an antioxidant, Seanol helps maintain healthy blood vessels by supporting the vascular epithelium that is confronted with circulating free radicals. Phlorotannins have been shown to boost the antioxidant capacity of serum. Phlorotannins also benefit healthy blood vessels by scavenging free radicals that occur in the body such as the DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) radical and peroxynitrite. Seanol is a strong anti-oxidant that removes ‘free-radicals’ and toxins from the cardiovascular system, promotes healthy blood viscosity for optimal flow and supports healthy blood vessel function. Memory: Seanol has beneficial effects on mental energy and enhanced cerebral circulation. Seanol promotes healthy levels of acetylcholine, one of the body’s major neurotransmitters that control memory and cognition. Joint Health: Seanol has a favorable influence on the body’s physiological mechanisms that support joint function and comfort. In vitro studies reveal Seanol’s influence on biochemical mediators of proteoglycan integrity, which in turn points to maintenance of the structural integrity of healthy joints. Metabolism: Seanol has a dampening effect on DGAT (diglyceride acyltransferase), an enzyme that plays a central role in the intestinal absorption of fats, body fat storage and triglyceride levels in the blood. Administered to mice, Seanol reduces deposition of fat in skeletal muscles.
