Dried Atlantic wild sea cucumber


Latin: Cucumaria Frondosa

The main ingredients of sea cucumbers are known for:

  • Reduce stiffness and joint pain (Chondroitin sulfate)
  • Improve blood flow (Methionine)
  • Enhance human immunity and prevent diseases (Saponins and Phenylalanine)
  • Contain collagen


Features of Arctic Star dried Atlantic wild sea cucumbers:

Arctic Star dried Atlantic wild sea cucumbers were fished in the north Atlantic sea beyond Iceland coast. Arctic star dried Atlantic wild sea cucumber contain over 50 types of nutrients such as collagen, amino acids, taurine, chondroitin sulfate, peptides, mucopolysaccharides, and many other kinds of ingredients that may have a positive impact on the physiological activities of the human body.

Sea cucumbers are known for:

    • Containing high collagen and low fat

    • Reducing joint pain

    • Building cartilage and reduce the incidence of joint damage

    • Improving the immune system and the body’s resistance to various diseases

    • Increasing blood flow which reduces the risk of blood clots

    • Prevening atherosclerosis

    • Improving blood flow and human body´s energy, contribute to form skin proteins and insulin

History of sea cucumbers:

Sea cucumber has been revered as a healthy delicacy in China where it has been consumer for over 500 million years. In the Chinese language sea cucumber is called “hai shen” which translates as “sea ginseng”. China has the largest consumption of sea cucumbers in the world and there it is used to treat high blood pressure and joint pains as well as low libido. In Indonesia the sea cucumber is considered to have many healing uses because it is one of the earth’s oldest living creatures.

The main ingredients of Arctic Star dried Atlantic wild sea cucumbers and their functions:

Collagen which is a key protein structure of the human body. Collagen proteins ensure strong and healthy connective tissues.

Chondroitin sulfate is an important structural component of cartilage and provides much of its resistance to compression. It is also a painkiller for those suffering from joint pain. Chondroitin sulfate has become a widely used dietary supplement for treatment of osteoarthritis.

Amino acids  are the basis for the structure of proteins. Sea cucumbers contain important amino acids that the human body can not produce itself, such as:

  • Methionine which improves blood flow and energy and contributes to form skin proteins and insulin.
  • Lysine which promotes brain development and fat metabolism, controls the pineal gland, mammary glands, corpus luteum, ovaries and prevents cell degeneration. Lysine is an integral part of liver and gallbladder.
  • Tryptophan which contributes to gastric juice production and insulin.
  • Valine which promotes normal function of the nervous system, acting specially in corpus luteum, breast and ovaries.
  • Threonine which supports balance in human body´s amino acids.
  • Leucine which can lower blood sugar levels and enhance healing of the skin, wounds and bones.
  • Isoleucine which adapts thymus, spleen, and brain metabolism to keep physiological balance of the human body.
  • Phenylalanine that reinforces kidney and bladder function. These nutrients can increase the activity of immune cells to help the human body to form antibodies.

Mucopolysaccharide which lowers blood pressure and reduces the possibility of atherosclerosis.

Saponins can increase the activity of immune cells of the body and contribute to the formation of antibodies and delay aging.
