Immune Function sodium alginate

Immune Function of Algal Polysaccharides in Laminaria Japonica Algal polysaccharides (sodium alginate) can act as biological adsorbents, nutrient resources of other marine organism and coldness-protective agents of cellular materials. It helps to reduce blood lipid, exert antioxidant function and to enhance immune regulatory activity and prepare microcapsule. Algal polysaccharides are likely to become the main […] read more

Properties of Sodium Alginate

Properties of Sodium Alginate 1. Thickening Property of Alginates As a hydrophilic polymer, alginates have one important feature, that is, its solution has relatively high viscosity. Based on this, alginates can act as thickening and tackifying agents. The larger the molecular weight is, the higher the solution viscosity becomes and the better the thickening effects […] read more

what is sodium alginate

what is sodium alginate   Sodium alginate, a natural polysaccharide, has the necessary stability, solubility, viscosity and safety of pharmaceutical excipients. Alginate extract in phaeophyceae was first studied in 1881 by the British chemist E.C.Stanford. He found that the alginate extract has several interesting properties such as the ability to concentrate solution, form gel and […] read more

Research and Application of Sodium alginate in Pharmaceutical Chemicals

Research and Application of Sodium alginate in Pharmaceutical Chemicals   Application in Pharmaceutical Preparation   As early as 1938, sodium alginate powder had already been included in USP (United States Pharmacopeia). In 1963, alginate was accepted in British Pharmacopoeia. Alginate is insoluble in water but will swell when put in water. Consequently, sodium alginate powder […] read more
