SpongiCol® is an enterically coated dietary supplement developed by KliniPharm's experts, which contains marine sponge collagen as well as lecithin. This innovative nutraceutical is available as granulate or capsule formulation on the basis of soy- or egg yolk-derived lecithin.

Marine sponge collagen is obtained through a patented process from Chondrosia reniformis, a widespread Mediterranean sponge, which is harvested by KliniPharm divers in the pure waters of the Aegean Sea. KliniPharm's careful extraction procedure guarantees the supreme purity and efficacy of all-natural marine sponge collagen used in our products.

Lecithin is an essential component of cell membranes and plays an essential role in the preservation of tissue function and viability. Because lecithin is sensitive to acidic breakdown, we developed an innovative formulation for its enteric coating. Taking advantage of the unique property of Chondrosia reniformis collagen to form an unpenetrable barrier in acidic pH milieus, such as can be encountered in the stomach, we invented a formulation that enables the delivery of intact lecithin to the colon [Link enteric coating using marine sponge collagen].

Marine sponge collagen serves as an essential component of innovative anti-aging skin care regimens aimed at replenishing the diminishing collagen reservoirs of aging skin and as a patented vehicle for transdermal drug delivery. Additionally, marine sponge collagen exhibits a unique pH-profile, which enables the formation of a natural polymer film that is stable in acidic environments, as proven by KliniPharm's experts.

SpongiCol® makes use of this distinctive marine sponge collagen feature, by preventing acidic breakdown of lecithin during the gastric passage into the lower intestine, as desired for example when following a balanced diet for digestive conditions, such as ulcerative colitis (UC) or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In the basic pH encountered in the lower intestine, marine sponge collagen forms an aqueous gel that coats the mucosal layers of the colon, thereby acting as a natural protective barrier. This gel barrier contains collagen fibrils as well as intact lecithin macromolecules, which are continuously released for prolonged time periods.
