 Fucoidan w/ Maritech 926, Optimized

Fucoidan w/ Maritech 926, Optimized

*This information provided by Life Extension Foundation Magazine Issue May 2011.

Undaria pinnatifida, a brown macro seaweed, is one of the richest known sources of fucose.

Fucose is the fundamental sub unit of fucoidan. Fucose is one of the eight essential sugars the body needs for optimum cell-to-cell communication. It is a glyconutrient. Fucose is abundant in breast milk, seaweeds such as kelp & wakame, and certain mushrooms. Fucose has also been linked to improving the brain's ability to create long-term memories. Studies have shown that by inhibiting fucose in the brain, amnesia has developed.

The benefits of Fucose include:

  • Influencing brain development
  • Acting as an immune modulator
  • Aiding in tissue repair
  • Enhancing cell-cell communication.

According to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Fucoidan has the ability to block cancer cells from developing and growing, making it appear to have anti-tumor, anti-cancer and neuroprotective actions.

High concentrations of fucose are found at the junctions between nerves, in the kidney and testes and in the outer layer of the skin. In recent years, scientific interest has intensified around fucoidan, a little-known molecule found primarily in edible seaweeds native to the Japanese diet. Nearly 900 published studies indicate its power to promote healthy immune function, cell-to-cell communication, and tissue repair.*

Many experts now believe that fucoidan is one of the key nutrients responsible for the exceptionally long, healthy lives enjoyed in Okinawa, which for decades boasted the world's highest concentration of centenarians (individuals at least a century old).* It also has the world's longest average life span.
