Treasured by the Tongans of the South Pacific for 3,000 years, Fucoidan  has developed a reputation for promoting good health and fighting disease.

Scientists have discovered Fucoidan's amazing benefits can be attributed to its complex carbohydrates, called polysacchrides, as well as its glyconutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Fucoidan--the most exciting of them all--has been cited in more that 650 research studies around the world.

1Reduces Hyperactivity: Amino acids and polyphenois (antioxidants) in Fucoidan are able to bind to heavy metals in the urinary tract, preventing a build up in the bloodstream. Heavy metals have been linked to learning disorders and hyperactivity in children.
2Lessens Allergies: Fucoidan may lessen allergic reactions by stimulating interleukin 12 and interferon-fA production, proteins which suppress lgE production. Too much lgE causes sneezing, wheezing and nasal inflammation.
3Relieves Allergic Inflammation: Fucoidan has anti-inflammatory properties which can also help reduce discomfort of allergies and skin disorders.
4Alleviates Sinusitis: Fucoidan's anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties can alleviate a variety of sinus conditions.
5Reduces Congestion: Fucoidan's mucilage helps the body hold moisture which can reduce congestion.
6Lowers Cholesterol: The Journal of Nutrition cited data showing Fucoidan alters the activity of liver enzymes that control the way fatty acids are metabolized, resulting in lower cholesterol levels in the blood.
7Improves Blood Pressure: Studies show Fucoidan improves blood pressure levels.
