- SUPPORTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM – A healthy immune system is vital for good health as it helps to protect our bodies from invading viruses and bacteria. The powerful ability of fucoidan to bring the immune system back into balance is an extremely useful fucoidan health benefit and enables the immune system to function correctly.
- FIGHTS VIRAL INFECTIONS
No one likes getting sick or contracting an infection. Published research has indicatedthat fucoidan can halt the progression of infections through the body by preventing viruses from entering host cells, and also by blocking attachment of viruses to host cell surfaces.
- REDUCES INFLAMMATION
As your immune system loses the ability to shut down after beneficial inflammatory processes (such as healing a sprained ankle, or fighting an infection), you can be left with harmful, chronic inflammation. Fucoidan has shown tremendous therapeutic anti-inflammatory potential in addressing conditions caused by chronic inflammation, such as arthritis-related joint inflammation, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease.
- ASSISTS DIGESTION
It is becoming evident that gut health and gut flora play a more important role in overall health and wellbeing than previously realized.
There is significant interest in the potential of fucoidan, a natural prebiotic, to improve a range of digestive health conditions. Fucoidan is a complex carbohydrate and can improve digestive processes by absorbing water and pushing food along the digestive tract. Fucoidan is also known to have a unique ability to address both inflammation and infection, which are two known causes of stomach irritation and pain.
- ANTI-AGEING SUPPORT
New research has recently confirmed the marked effect of fucoidan on ageing-related processes.
- ANTIOXIDANT ACTIONS
Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can cause severe damage to our cells if they’re not neutralised by antioxidants. If our levels of natural antioxidants are not high enough to counteract the damaging effect of these free radicals, then oxidative stress will occur. The good news is that we can improve our body’s natural supply of antioxidants with supplementation.
- SUPPORTS BLOOD DISORDERS
Fucoidan is known to possess potent anticoagulant (blood-thinning) properties, which may be beneficial in preventing or treating certain health conditions such stroke, heart attack, or deep vein thrombosis.
- ASSISTS WITH WEIGHT LOSS & METABOLIC SYNDROME
Fucoidan has been shown to help break down fat cells, promote better digestion, boost the immunity, and also increase anti-diabetic activity such as lowering high blood sugars and helping the body use insulin correctly.
