Polypodium leucotomos & Polypodium decumanum
Raintree Nutrition’s Calaguala (pronounced “kal-la-wall-la”) Capsules combines two species of rainforest ferns (Polypodium leucotomos and Polypodium decumanum).
They are a rich source of lipids and fatty acids and the therapeutic activity of the plants are attributed to these groups of chemicals.
Within its lipids are a group of chemicals called sulphoquinovo-syldiacylglycerols, (including those named calaguline or anapsos) which have been documented and patented as part of the plant’s “active” chemicals.
Price: £14.95 – 100 Capsules
