Liquamen (ling fish autolysate)


Liquamen (ling fish autolysate)


Liquamen is the Latin word for one of the most esteemed food materials used as sauces and condiments in the ancient Roman Empire. The liquamen with the best quality was lauded for its nutritional value, and was called "the product with a thousand virtues" by Scribonius Largus, the personal physician to Emperor Claudius, in 43 A.D.

The raw material used in Liquamen® is ling fish, an edible fish of the cod family that lives at the depth of 2,000 m in the Northern Atlantic Ocean and grows to the size of over 2 m. Living in an extreme environment with scarce oxygen, low temperature, high pressure, darkness, and high stress, these fish has a special metabolic system enabling them to synthesize unsaturated fatty acids from the plankton they ingest.

This product contains 1,800 da and smaller peptides (a group of enzymatic polypeptides and peptides), polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω3) that already have formed lipoproteins, selenium chelated with natural amino acids, and vitamin E complex.
