Padine brown seaweed (Padina pavonica, class Phaeophyceae) is a seaweed naturally highly concentrated in minerals whose activity is scientifically recognised for the maintenance of bone capital and joint comfort. Thanks to its richness in active ingredients such as calcium and silicon and ingenious mechanisms, this seaweed is capable of effectively regulating calcium fixation and the processes involved in biomineralisation, fibre synthesis (collagen, elastin, etc.) and bone micro-architectural structure.
TEXINFINE Laboratories exploit the bio-regulatory capacities of Padina pavonica, a brown alga naturally highly concentrated in minerals.
Mineralization and Bone Capital - When Nature meets Science :
Like all tissues, bone is in constant renewal thanks to a continuous cooperation between two cell populations: osteoclasts (responsible for bone resorption) and osteoblasts (responsible for bone formation). The mineral density and the quality of the micro-architectural structure of a bone are maintained by the balance of this remodelling balance.
In the course of ageing, there is an imbalance in this balance resulting in a significant loss of organic and mineral substances with a decrease in bone density and the fragility of tissues. Bones, cartilage, joints and muscles deteriorate and their constituents change to the extent that our musculoskeletal system becomes less resistant and more vulnerable to injury.
These changes can sometimes be accelerated by extreme physical exertion, poor lifestyle habits or genetic predisposition.
