Amazing Fucoidan Health Benefits and Fucoidan studies


What is Fucoidan?

Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide and has long been recognized as a key to long and healthy lives. Fucoidan Japan/ Fucoidan Okinawa:  It has been used for centuries for its health-giving properties in Japan, South America, and Europe.  It is a staple of the Okinawan diet.  Okinawan people (the older generation, country people) are know for health and longevity; they eat plenty of fucoidan seaweed. 

A growing body of scientific research suggests fucoidan extract may potentially provide potent immune and antioxidant support.

Fucoidan seaweed:  The studies for the potential health benefits of this nutrient, which is specifically a polysaccharide derived from brown seaweed, are on-going; but the immune system potential is especially encouraging.

Youngevity’s Dietary Fucoidan Supplement Z-Radical by Nutritional Pharmacist Ben Fuchs

One of the things I always look for in a good nutritional supplement is value. And boy does Youngevity’s dietary supplement Z-Radical have value. Its active ingredient, fucoidan is a potent and unique bio-molecule with a chemical structure that makes it tremendously versatile. Derived from ocean vegetation, fucoidan absorbs and holds water like a sponge; this property is called hygro-scopicity (Latin for “moist looking”) and it’s responsible for the gooiness that is seaweed’s most obvious characteristic.

Scientists know fucoidan as a “sulfated polysaccharide”. The complex sugar polysaccharide portion of fucoidan is, as described by its designation, made up of various sugar molecules. The most dramatic is the aforementioned greatly enhanced ability to absorb water. This water trapping effect gives polysaccharides a slimy mucous-ey quality that plays an important role in healing wounded biological tissues especially in the digestive system. It may not sound very pretty but the water-trapping mucoid slime basically coats and soothes inflamed and irritated digestive tissue not only calming and healing irritation, but just as importantly “sliming’ away toxic substances like H-Pylori and other pesky bacteria as well as potentially irksome food particles (e.g. gluten and other allergy causing proteins). This makes polysaccharides like fucoidan super helpful for all digestive ailments including Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

The sulfur attachment to the polysaccharide provides benefits too. First of all, sulfur, being water soluble, enhances the hygroscopic nature of fucoidan. That means even more sliminess and even more coating and soothing benefits for inflamed digestive tissue. And the sulfur attachment can be cleaved by the enzymes to releasing the element from its sugar attachment and making it available for use on its own. Formation of collagen, detoxification and activation of important biomolecules like cholesterol and Vitamin D are examples of sulfur dependent biological functions that can be enhanced by the cleavage of sulfur from its polysaccharide attachment. Finally, because of sulfur’s inherent attraction to protein molecule to proteins sulfation of the polysaccharide allows fucoidan to attach itself to various enzymes and tissues enhancing its biological activity even further.

Fucoidan’s complexes of sugars have significant and well-researched anti-cancer properties. A quick search of the scientific website reveals several pages of studies that that demonstrate fucoidan fights various forms of The Empower of Maladies, including cancers of the breast, prostate and skin. And it can help lessen the side effect severity of chemotherapy and radiation. Even if you’re not concerned about cancer, fucoidan provides all-around support for our body’s built-in defenses, the immune system. With the regular assaults on our bodies through food water and air, even if you’re healthy and a-symptomatic, using supplemental fucoidan can be an important maintenance strategy to prevent degeneration and illness before bodily breakdown begins.

Perhaps the most notable role that fucoidan plays in helping keep a human body healthy involves its ability to keep blood circulating smoothly. Embolisms and thrombosis and other defects in blood clotting are a significant and often fatal health condition. According to the National Blood Clot Alliance, every year, up to two million people develop clots. Blood-thinners like Warfarin and Pradaxa, consistently best selling drugs in America, are also among the most toxic and troublesome to monitor. While certainly not as potent as pharmacological agents, in non-critical conditions, the gentle and non-toxic anti-coagulant effects of fucoidan should at least be considered as a therapeutic alternative to toxic medications.

More About Fucoidan Health Benefits and Fucoidan Studies

One recent study which was published in the Journal of Nutrition describes the potential fucoidan health benefits possibly for the elderly population. The study was conducted by researchers from Aljinkai Healthcare Corporation and Mukogawa Women’s University in Japan who found that four weeks of fucodian supplementation improved the immune response to seasonal influenza vaccinations in the elderly. Older adult populations tend to have poor immune response to flu vaccines, increasing their exposure to the virus. The study was conducted on a group of 70 people over the age of 60 in which participants were either given fucoidan supplements or a placebo for 4 weeks before being vaccinated for the flu. They were followed for 20 weeks, finding that those who had taken the fucoidan supplement had a higher concentration of antibodies, which could possibly prevent influenza epidemics in the elderly.1

Some other possible fucoidan health benefits which are still being studied are:

  • Fucoidan Cell Regeneration
  • Fucoidan Cholesterol Maintenance
  • Fucoidan Weight Management
  • Fucoidan Circulatory System Support
  • Fucoidan Antioxidants
  • Fucoidan Apoptosis (elimination of harmful cells)
