What is Irish Moss (Chondrus Crispus)?

Irish moss is a species of red algae. It has a high concentration of marine trace elements from algae sources, including Calcium, Selenium, Iron, Zinc, and Magnesium. It provides a wealth of amino acids: Arginine, Citrulline, Taurine, and a unique dipeptide named L-Citrullyl-L-Arginine. Naturally formed under extreme daylight and temperature conditions, this dipeptide is easily absorbed and carried through the body. All together these properties help maintain a healthy metabolism, boosting strength, vitality, and energy.

The environment and water purity have a great impact on the product. To ensure an outstanding concentration of nutrients and that there aren't any traces of mercury or other heavy metals, CITRAG® is sourced from the most pristine waters.

Why Choose Patented CITARG® Polar Algae?

Manufactured by Iontec, CITARG® is a patented ingredient (total alga naturally dried) harvested from the clean subarctic Atlantic Ocean. Due to its high concentration in energy & defense metabolites its application ranges from metabolism support, sports nutrition and energy boosters.

1. A patented ingredient supported by clinical research: CITARG® is rich in peptides and other active ingredients with exceptional bioavailability. According to Iontec’s research, daily supplementation of 1.5g CITARG® for 3 weeks helps improve fatigue, asthenia, and general health. 

2. Harvested when the concentration of defense molecules is at its maximum: The regular harvest of Irish moss takes place in summer to avail larger quantities. Iontec, in contrast, insists on offering ‘over-wintered algae’, as it is right after wintertime that the efficacy of functional molecules reaches its peak. For instance, the concentration of L-citrulline-L-arginine is multiplied by 15 after winter. The same applies to Arginine, Citrulline, and other nutrients. 

3. L-arginine and its precursor (L-Citrulline) as an NO booster: Supporting the body’s healthy funct and nutrients delivery.

Who Should Take Irish Moss Supplements?

Irish moss is one of the best botanical sources of nutritionally essential trace elements. As all of them function actively in normal metabolism, we advise consumers to regularly supplement Irish moss as part of a balanced diet. CITARG® is designed for an energy-deprived population that wants to refuel both body and mind, preferably in a natural manner.

- People who suffer from lack of vitality or winter fatigue; workers in labor-intensive positions; athletes who want to achieve the next level in performance and recovery with nutritional support, etc.

- Consumers familiar with B vitamins, Maca, and Zinc-enriched yeast supplements—adding Irish moss can enhance the effectiveness.

- Vegans or vegetarians who have concerns over calcium and/or magnesium intake.
