Our Organic Fucoidan is extracted to 50% purity from Undaria seaweed, which is harvested from the pristine waters of Tasmania Australia using new organic, solvent-free, cold water technology. These premium grade fucoidans provide strong, safe immune support for immune-compromised individuals and help regulate inflammatory processes within the body, providing superior nutritional support for immune, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and gut health.
Most of the initial interest in fucoidans originated from studies of the Okinawan people of Japan. Researchers found that the Okinawans had the highest consumption of fucoidan in their diet compared to the rest of the Japanese population. This along with other social and lifestyle factors may have been responsible for the Okinawan’s having an unusually high number of its inhabitants living well past 100 years. Okinawa’s older population was also generally more mobile and self-reliant, showed reduced heart disease and had lower cancer rates compared to other parts of Japan where the consumption of fucoidan rich seaweed was proportionately less.

Fucoidan first came to the attention of scientists when studying the potential reasons Okinawans live longer healthier lives than other Japanese people. One of the first things they realised was that the Okinawan population eat proportionately more fucoidan in there diet than in other populations of Japan The Okinawan people have an unusually high number of its population living well past 100 years. It is thought that this is due to their diet, which is high in fucoidans along with other lifestyle and social factors.
- Worldwide research into various forms of fucoidans extracted from seaweed show potential health benefits in many areas including supporting the body’s natural mechanisms for keeping a check on abnormal cells, supporting the body’s natural regulation of inflammation, immune system efficiency , healing processes, cardiovascular, brain and joint health. Fucoidans have been found to support healthy microbiome and overall gut health.

Our Organic Fucoidan is extracted from hand-harvested Undaria Pinnatifida seaweed species from the pristine waters of the South Pacific, which is one of the last remaining natural habitats for these seaweed species that remain uncontaminated with pollutants. It is then extracted using cold water purification to preserve the bioactivity. Our fucoidan is processed under GMP and organic certification in Australia and is the most premium grade of fucoidan available on the market.
