A QUALITY EXTRACTION PROCESS
The extracts of Ladrôme laboratory fresh plants come from a traditional know-how. They meet the manufacturing and control requirements of the Pharmacopoeia, from the manufacturing process to the conformity analysis of the final product. After the harvest, the plants are transformed: finely crushed, they macerate for at least three weeks in a mixture of water and organic alcohol; this mixture is stirred daily. This process makes it possible to extract the maximum of substances that are soluble in water and alcohol, the alcohol serving at the same time as a preservative. The solution thus obtained is decanted and filtered to obtain the plant extract which will then be packaged at the production site in Drôme.
Unlike modern chemical medicine that uses only isolated active ingredients, herbal medicine uses parts of plants or whole plants that act thanks to the multiplicity of their active components (called totum).
A plant extract or mother tincture is a hydroalcoholic solution concentrated in the active ingredients of a medicinal plant. After harvest, fresh plants are immediately macerated. Finely crushed, they macerate for at least three weeks in organic alcohol. The mixture is stirred daily. The solution thus obtained is then pressed, decanted and filtered to obtain the plant extract.
Each plant extract thus has particular properties due to its unique composition of active ingredients!

Botany: The flexible and elastic sling branches dichotomously and is in the form of ribbons 20 to 100 cm long, up to 2 cm wide. She wears aeriform vesicles or floats called aerocysts or pneumatocysts which allow her to maintain a certain buoyancy to catch the light while remaining attached to the substrate by her crampon. This algae is dark olive-brown, but the gaseous vesicles are lighter. In the center of each division of the sling, there is a median coast (pseudonervure) and at the end, at the time of reproduction (usually spring but we find fertile feet all year in Brittany), others yellowish vesicles more coarse: these receptacles contain the male or female reproductive cells (dioecious species, the bulging of the female foot releases a green jelly, that of male foot an orange jelly). The seaweed clings to the substrate by a crampon (irregularly shaped adhesive disk) from which a round or oval section stipe rises.

- Usual therapeutic indications
Weight loss thanks to the high fiber content and a quick impression of satiety: thanks to the mucilaginous structure of the thalli of the fucus, the feeling of gastric fullness is very fast. The thalli rehydrate quickly and their volume increases significantly to have a mechanical appetite suppressant effect. The high iodine content acts as a "fat burner". Fight against gastric acidity and heartburn; fight against constipation by a laxative effect; improves the appearance of nails, hair and skin; treatment of thyroid problems; treatment of vitamin and trace element deficiencies (remineralization of the body); stimulation of the thyroid gland.

30 to 40 drops diluted in a drink, 3 times a day (or 3.8 ml per day), for 3 weeks.
An overdose on the medium or long term can lead to an excess of iodine and hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Fucus is therefore generally not recommended for people with thyroid problems. Algae can be loaded with heavy metals, so fucus is not recommended for children, pregnant or breastfeeding women. Baths and poultices should not be used in the presence of wounds or oozing dermatitis. Fucus is also contraindicated in case of tachycardias, angina (angina pectoris), hypersensitivity to iodine.
Prolonged consumption of fucus can lead to hypersensitivity or hyperthyroidism with palpitations, stress, insomnia. Over consumption of iodine can lead to skin damage, acne development, heavy salivation or gastric irritation. It is recommended not to exceed 150 micrograms of iodine per day over an extended period of time.
