Active ingredients in brown algae support the health of cancer patients

Brown algae contains a lot of fiber that supports intestinal health, contains antioxidants, fucoidan to support the self-destruction process of cancer cells.

Iodine and tyrosine support thyroid function

The thyroid gland relies on iodine to secrete hormones that help control growth, energy production, reproduction and repair of cells in the body. Iodine deficiency can lead to thyroid-related diseases. Brown algae contains an amino acid called tyrosine, combined with iodine to create hormones that help the thyroid function properly.


Mozuku brown mozuku is rich in fucoidan mozuku is believed to help promote cancer cells to follow the cell death process. Mozuku fucoidan is widely used but to get one gram of mozuku fucoidan, manufacturers need one kilogram of mozuku brown seaweed.

In wakame brown algae, most fucoidan is found in the root and roots, containing the fucoidan mekabu compound that is able to contribute to the inhibition of blood vessel formation in tumor cells, supporting the prevention of metastatic tumors; Inhibit clot formation, reduce blood pressure, stroke risk.

The bladder wrack brown algae contains fucus fucoidan compound that helps slow the growth of colon tumor and breast cancer. In addition, brown seaweed also contains antioxidants that protect cells like flavonoids and carotenoids (especially fucoxanthin). Carotenoids have antioxidant support.

Fiber supports the intestines

The fiber in brown algae aids in digestion, creates a food source for colon bacteria, helps to balance intestinal microflora.

Substances that help reduce the risk of disease

Factors that increase the risk of heart disease include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking and being overweight and obese. Interestingly, brown algae can help reduce excess fat and lower blood cholesterol levels.

Heart disease can also be caused by excessive blood clotting. Brown algae contains a carbohydrate called fucans, which can help prevent blood clotting effectively, while peptides can prevent high blood pressure.

Brown algae may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by improving blood sugar control. An 8-week study of 60 Japanese showed that fucoxanthin can help improve blood sugar control. Those who took 2 mg of fucoxanthin oil improved their blood sugar better than those who didn't.

The mozuku fucoidan extract from Okinawa - a beautiful, pristine, clean sea in Japan - is the most common fucoidan, which has been shown to have an effect on the cancer cell's apoptosis.

Fucoidan in each type of brown seaweed has different activity and mechanism of action. A study published in the journal Nature international journal of science on March 23, 2017 showed that Mozuku brown seaweed rich in Mozuku Fucoidan, helps prevent disease and reduce tumor size.

Mekabu is the ruffled part, located right at the root of the wakame brown seaweed. Brown wakame has more than 34% of the sulfate sugar group is not broken down, digested in the human body, does not lead to high blood sugar, thereby reducing cholesterol, triglycerides, regulating blood sugar. . According to some studies from Japan, mekabu is more effective in inhibiting tumor angiogenesis.

Fucus fucoidan has long been discovered, used as an iodine supplement to prevent goiter since 1811. Fucus fucoidan extracted from bladder wrack seaweed (fucus vesiculosus), found along the west coast of the Baltic Sea, North Sea, as well as the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.

Since the discovery of fucoidan to date, many studies have shown that fucus fucoidan effectively supports anti-inflammatory, boost immunity, and alleviate symptoms of joint pain. In addition, fucus fucoidan is a good gut health enhancer and a powerful antioxidant.
