Fucoidan is a natural compound found in various forms of seaweed
like kombu, limu, wakame and mozuku plus animals like the sea
With over 900 studies found on Pub Med, Fucoidan is proving to be
one of the most intriguing and powerful medicines in the world.
Fucoidan naturally occurs in the cell walls of certain forms of
brown seaweed, brown algae, and a few species of marine animal life
(including sea snails, sea cucumbers, and urchins). No land-based
animal has been known to possess this amazing molecular compound,
and it is likely this reason that Fucoidan’s health benefits have
only just come to light.
Seaweeds containing Fucoidan have been found to have anti-tumor
activity in mice and Japanese researchers at the Biomedical
Research Laboratories have found that Fucoidan caused leukaemia,
lymphoma, colorectal and stomach cancer cells to self-destruct.
Fucoidan has also been found to have significant immune-boosting
effects, and can even reduce blood cholesterol levels and is
effective in cases of meningitis.
•Inhibition of blood coagulation
•Lowering of cholesterol level
Fucoidan’s ability to manage cholesterol can help you take control
over your weight. This natural substance burns away fatty acids
like cholesterol and triglycerides, keeping them from clogging up
your blood vessels while simultaneously providing you with energy.
Fucoidan also helps inhibit the adipogenesis process responsible
for the creation of fatty acids.
Provides a Natural Source of Antioxidants
All molecules on earth naturally go through a process known as
“oxidation.” Oxidation is the reason why an abandoned bike will
rust, and why the copper Statue of Liberty is green instead of its
natural color. Oxidation occurs inside of our bodies as well,
transforming our cells. However, this process can create some
unnatural results – free radicals. These free radicals are
by-products of oxidation, and therefore are not full molecules. In
their attempt to become full molecules, free radicals will steal
atoms from healthy cell molecules, causing damage to those cells.
Fucoidan is a natural source of antioxidants, which are molecules
that carry enough extra cells to stabilize the free radicals,
reducing the chance of healthy cell-molecule damage.
Improves Liver Health
Liver health is especially important because of all the significant
bodily processes the liver is responsible for. In scientific
studies, Fucoidan displayed anti-fibrosis properties on subjects
afflicted with liver fibrosis, and also was able to inhibit the
spread of hepatitis C (commonly responsible for fibrous tissue in
Helps Fight Cancer
Multiple types of cancer have been tested in studies with Fucoidan.
For many cancers, Fucoidan has an inhibitory effect on tumor cell
growth, and can also help the immune system keep cancer from
infecting healthy cells. It has even been shown in some studies to
induce cancer cell apoptosis (cell death). Fucoidan has also been
known to stop the spread of certain cancers (such as lung cancer)
from spreading throughout the body by blocking cancer cells from
using biological pathways in the body.
