The world of seaplants is a group of interrelated communities... each has a different focus. At one extreme we have communities with a completely financial interest. At the other extreme there are communities with a purely intellectual or aesthetic interest. Communities tend to revolve around discipline, environmental influences and uses. Most people belong to more than one community of interest (e.g. one discipline, at least one usage area and environmental impacts). Click on the hotlinks below to gain access to community links.

Nutra Pharma and Wellbeing
Bioactive and nutritional compounds and extracts from seaplants are attracting an increasing amount of attention as peoplse throughout the world seek natural sources of nutritional supplements, nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals. Seaplant constituents such as fucoidan, myostatin, carrageenan and a variety of others are attracting attention for their apparent efficacy as anti-inflammatory, anti-coagulant or anti-viral agents.

Unfortunately the considerable promise of nutritious or bioactive seaplant products has been marred by a certain amount of hype - even including blatantly false and exaggerated claims. This in turn has led to legal action against some purveyors of miracle products in which seaplant constituents are present as allegedly active ingredients. Incidents such as this marr the reputation of truly efficacious seaplant-source products and cast a shadow over legitimate producers and purveyors of useful seaplant nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals.

The position of SEAPlant.Net is that we should not act as advocates of any particular point of view with respect to the nutraceutical or pharmaceutical seaplant-source products. Rather, we endeavor to facilitate access to sound information by those who wish to study issues and reach their own conclusions.

Seavegetables are also finding ever-expanding uses as aids to peoples' well-being and personal care. Seavegetables have long been used as sources of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients both for internal consumption as food and supplements and as topical formulations for external application. SEAPlant.Net is being developed as an information source for this important industry segment. This is a highly fragmented segment of the industry and it is often difficult to match sources with users so SEAPlant.Net is also lining up trade facilitation facilities to help buyers and sellers of these products find each other and do business together.
