Anti-inflammatory Algae

TResearch Spring 2022

Bioactives found within brown algae contain anti-inflammatory properties that also help to reduce pain. As part of its Algae4IBD project, Teagasc is using novel processing methods to extract the compounds that offer these benefits, to develop functional food products. As chronic inflammation is a major health issue globally – causing diseases like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) – many people stand to benefit from this project.
