  4. Extraction of active molecules — enzymatic hydrolysis for the release of active ingredients from seaweed without solvent (first molecules for animal and vegetal health,) centrifugation (purification,) drying.
  5. Clay extraction — second essential natural product: Montmorillon’s clay recognised for its quality and stability.
  6. Pre-processing the clay — crushing, drying, grinding ball and dynamic selection to obtain superfine clay and optimise the interaction with algae but also the action in the digestive tract.
  7. Formulations based on levitra pharmacy natural products for animal and plant health and fda approves cialis nutrition: Amadéite; incorporation of seaweed extract in the interlayer space of the clay to develop new active ingredients in parallel to mail order levitra a research laboratory with the beneficial properties of algae (antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer)
  8. Finished products for different markets: Melspring (vegetable crops in greenhouses and orchards); PRP (open field cultures); Olmix and Amadéite (animal nutrition, hygiene and health)
  9. Aquaculture — replacement of cialis soft tablets fish protein with sustainable solutions such as algae.
