Fucoidan is an essential sugar

FUCOIDAN, one of the polysaccharide, was extracted from brown algae of Fucaceae family for the first time in 1913. Fucoidan contains galactose, glucoronic acid, xylose and several other major constituents that give the substance its potential health benefits. Fucoidan is also called sulfated alpha-L-fucan.

Its versatile biological activity was proved by scientific investigations in France, Japan, the USA and Russia. The benefits of Fucoidan have been reported in over 700 scientific studies worldwide. Fucoidan has been shown to promote optimal health utilizing a variety of pathways:

  • Fucoidan is a dietary fibre.
  • Fucoidan optimizes the natural killer cell (NK) function, your first line of immune defence. It  is capable of inducing programmed self-destruction of transformed cells of an organism due to triggering the apoptosis (a natural death of cells).
  • Fucoidan appears to have anti-tumor, anti-cancer and neuroprotective action. Fucoidan acts to block cancer cells from developing and growing. 
  • Fucoidan promotes a healthy immune response by increasing macrophage production, and enhancing its phagocytic activity which help the body get rid of viruses, bacteria, fungus, and parasites.
  • Fucoidan helps to maintain healthy upper respiratory mucous membranes which when weakened may increase the incidence of Bronchitis, Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and other pulmonary diseases.
  • Fucoidan strengthens the mucosal lining of the digestive and urinary tracts, improves resistance to bacterial and viral infections of digestive organs.
  • Fucoidan has a pronounced antiviral activity against herpes type 1 and 2, cytomegalovirus, adenovirus and influenza virus.
  • Fucoidan is a powerful free-radical neutralizer.
  • Fucoidan lowers the level of glucose absorption by blood-vessels, is it important for normal blood sugar level.
  • Fucoidan has a anticoagulant properties and regulates the level of cholesterol in blood. Fucoidan also seems to provide anti-coagulant and anti-thrombotic effects that improve blood circulation.
  • Fucoidan supports liver function.
  • Fucoidan is important for healthy hair, nails and skin tone.

A special emphasis has been laid on the immune system. It is a system that allows the body to fight against disease even by the terminating cells that have mutated. The body also eliminates toxins and poisons in the system. Toxins enter our systems through the air we breathe and the food and water we ingest. Due to environmental pollution, we are more at risk now than ever before. Fucoidan boosts our immune system.

Fucoidan has been shown to help the body with cellular communication. This enables the body to function better and will enable the immune system to be more efficient. It has also been found to help with cell regeneration by helping to increase stem cells. It has also been proven to help with many functions of the body. It enables the body to be stronger and resistant to diseases. It even helps our bodies to fight cancer.

With the growing amount of research being done on Fucoidan, more beneficial properties are being found, and we will find even more uses for this essential sugar.

 

WARNING
Although no major adverse reactions have been reported from using fucoidan, the substance may increase your bleeding risks if you're also taking blood-thinning medications.
