The power behind all our extracts is Ascophyllum nodosum, an intertidal seaweed with distinctive characteristics.

This plant has evolved a unique array of bioactive compounds that allow it to survive extreme climatic conditions ranging from immersion in temperate water to exposure to scorching sunshine or shoreline frost.

Ascophyllum nodosum takes 4-5 years to reach maturity. Maintaining an age old tradition, it is hand cut in a sustainable manner that ensures that the seaweed beds replenish & grow again.

Not All Seaweeds Are The Same

Over 9,500 different species of seaweeds exist with three major classifications: red, green & brown. Seaweed species are also specific to regions and oceans. Brandon’s powerful extracts are derived from Ascophyllum nodosum, a brown seaweed of the genus group Fucales.

Exclusive to the North Atlantic Intertidal Zone

Ascophyllum nodosum is an inter-tidal seaweed found only in the pristines waters of the North Atlantic. In the unrelenting environment between the changing tides, Ascophyllum nodosum has developed a natural biochemistry that allows it to thrive & grow.

Analysis reveals that Brandon’s Ascophyllum nodosum extracts can have as much as 87% more organic molecules than other seaweed species, much of this is believed to come from the challenging environment in which it grows.

Brandon – Next Generation Extracts

Such evidence-based, next generation biosolutions offering dependable returns on investment (ROI) to growers, will see the biostimulant market grow to $3 billion by 2018 from its current value of $1 billion. (EBIC, Piper Jeffrey)
