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 their 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.
