Seacure® is backed by a 40-year history of safe clinical use. (1,4,5)
Proven safe. All natural, drug-free, and with no known side effects, drug interactions, or contraindications. (1,2,3,5)
Seacure® provides intestinal support without the inconvenient or uncomfortable side effects associated with some OTC remedies and pharmaceutical attempts. (2,3)
Safety, tolerance, and benefit of 1 to 2g dosages of the Seacure®peptides both orally and by tube feeding were demonstrated in one study of 2500 premature, malnourished infants and another study of 3200 malnourished children. (1,5)
A select committee of the Food and Nutrition Board of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences has previously endorsed the safety and effectiveness of a concentrate of protein from fish, such as Seacure®. (6)
In a controlled study, a team of physicians and surgeons found Seacure® to be a superior source of protein compared to a casein standard for hospitalized patients, and further noted that the positive results in patients went beyond what thought could be related simply to protein. (5)
Seacure® was reported to reduce the symptoms of occasional diarrhea and constipation, and alleviate bloating, gas, and symptoms generally viewed as gas at a dosage of 3g per day for 60 days, as reported in a recent study. (2)
In an early study, the intake of the hydrolyzed protein Seacure® assisted recovery in hospitalized patients with diarrhea. (5)
The 3rd International Forum of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition in Brazil recommended the use of the hydrolyzed protein Seacure® in cases of diarrhea. (5)
3g per day of Seacure® over 30 days strengthened intestinal integrity as assessed by laboratory testing in a recent study that also monitored function and improvement in symptoms. (3)
Numerous clinical studies performed in hospitals over the past 40 years have demonstrated the range of benefits provided by Seacure®, including not only improvement in protein balance and intestinal function, but also in related areas of maintaining immune system function, healthy blood profiles, and general health among patients ranging from infants to geriatrics. (1,5)
In several studies with immune compromised children, 2 to 3g per day of Seacure® resulted in maintaining normal immunoglobulin levels (antibodies against infection) and a general support to the clinical management against infection. (1,5)
Two adult groups, one between 30 and 60 years of age and one between 60 and 80 years of age, demonstrated healthy blood profiles over a 3 month period at 3g of Seacure® per day, as part of a longitudinal follow up study. (5)
In a controlled study, Seacure® was tested against the standard protein used in tube feeding of surgical patients. Results with Seacure® were superior in the areas of blood variables, skin and muscle tone, nitrogen balance, and general metabolism. (5)
