Best Fucoidan 70% Brown Seaweed
Best Fucoidan 70% contains the glyconutrient fucoidan derived from brown algae. Seaweeds are a part of the diet in many cultures and fucoidan-containing species have been used traditionally for a variety of therapeutic purposes. Fucoidan contains an abundance of immune-modulating constituents known as polysaccharides. * These unique and complex sulfated polysaccharides are not found in other seaweeds or land plants, and have been shown to mediate a variety of significant biological effects on mammalian cells in laboratory research. * Research also suggests that fucoidan may possess significant antioxidant activity. *

Question: How effective is Fucoidan?
A: Researchers studying fucoidan fractions from algae have tested their ability to enhance immune function in various in vitro assays. In one such study, isolated fucoidan fractions from a water-soluble extract of Fucus vesiculosus as well as commercial sources of fucoidan were shown to enhance resistance and support an immune response by impacting enzyme-mediated replication activity in the cells studied in this assay.
Further in vitro work confirms the immune modulating activity of fucoidan. Researchers showed that sulfated fucans were able to inhibit complement-mediated destruction of sheep red blood cells and rabbit red blood cells in vitro, suggesting a potential application as immune-supportive agents. The complement system is an important component of our immune system that utilizes a cascade of small proteins found in the bloodstream to mount an immune response in the body. In this assay, it was found that the immune-modulating activity increased with increasing molecular weight and with increasing glycolipid content of the fucoidan fractions. This line of in vitro research suggests that fucoidan and its various fractions may be potent balancers of immune function.
Research also suggests that fucoidan may support a healthy cytokine-based immune response and affect immune function at the level of immunomodulatory enzymes. This work was done in the laboratory in human tissue sections. Enzymatic action was shown to be inhibited in these connective tissue sections with the addition of fucoidan fractions, suggesting support of healthy connective tissue by fucoidan.
