The source of FUCOIDAN
Complex polysaccharides are part of the family of carbohydrates that are essential and important to life. Polysaccharides are very important with preventing degenerative type dieses such as Heart Disease, Diabetes, Cancer and many more. A few examples of complex polysaccharides are starch (found in corn, potatoes and rice), cellulose (seeds, nuts, apple skin), and pectin (soluble fibers like oats, dried beans, oranges, apples and carrots). However, one of the best sources of a complex polysaccharide is FUCOIDAN (a fuco-galactose sulfated polysaccharide). The interesting characteristic of this ingredient is that it has a series of individual components that provide effective health benefits.
FUCOIDAN is obtained from the slimy section of brown algae such as Mozuku, Kombu, and Mekabu. First discovered by Professor Kylin of Uppsala University in Sweden in 1913, since then, the polysaccharide FUCOIDANhas been extensively studied worldwide for its unique activity and mechanism.

The Secret of Okinawa, Japan
If you didn't know, Okinawa is known as the island of Longevity. It is located in the southernmost prefecture of Japan. It is also where the mortality rate by cancer is the lowest in the nation. One of the reasons is considered the unique dietary habits of the Okinawan people. Their dietary habits and key ingredients consist of sea vegetables such as brown algae Mozuku and mekabu. However, sea vegetables do not reveal the secret of longevity long enjoyed by the people of Okinawa...
The key to that secret lies in Fucoidan!
