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. In 2002 Japanese scientists tested the traditional breakfast of the Okinawan people which consisted mainly of a soup made from oily fish and undaria seaweed rich in fucoidans. The results suggest that both oily fish and fucoidan rich seaweed have benefits for health and when combined together the benefits were multiplied.
