Where does Fucoidan come from and what benefits does it bring?

The marine acid polysaccharide Fucoidan has attracted the attention of the food and pharmaceutical industries due to its promising therapeutic effects. Fucoidan is a polysaccharide consisting mainly of L-fucose and sulfate groups. Its excellent biological function is attributed to its unique biological structure. Classical activities include antitumor, antioxidant, anticoagulant, antithrombotic, immunoregulatory, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory effects. More recently, Fucoidan has been shown to alleviate metabolic syndrome, protect the gastrointestinal tract, benefit angiogenesis and bone health.

This viscous substance is characteristic of Mozuku (Cladosiphon), Kombu (Laminaria) algae. It was discovered in 1913 by Dr. Kylin at Uppsala University in Sweden. The scientist analyzed the viscosity of the brown seaweed Hondawara (Fucus).

Seaweed has been recognized for its great health qualities. Due to its multiple properties, this substance has been used by Viridi Laboratory to produce an incredible product that promotes an active lifestyle and longevity of health: Viridi Fucus Jelly.
