PER GOOGLE SEARCH

Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide (MW: average 20,000) found mainly in various species of brown seaweed such as kombu, limu moui, bladderwrack, wakame, mozuku, and hijiki (variant forms of fucoidan have also been found in animal species, including the sea cucumber).

Substantial pharmaceutical research has been done on fucoidan, focusing primarily on two distinct forms: F-fucoidan, which is >95% composed of sulfated esters of fucose, and U-fucoidan, which is approximately 20% glucuronic acid. As a consequence of this research, U-fucoidan and F-fucoidan are now being marketed as a nutraceutical, a supposed "miracle drug", and a food supplement.[1]

Researchers began studying fucoidan around 1970, and since that time fucoidan has been cited in approximately 700 studies published in the National Library of Medicine's database. The overall findings of this large body of research, coupled with anecdotal evidence provided by a long history of use of fucoidan-bearing seaweed in areas such as Japan, Hawaii and Tonga, indicate that fucoidan demonstrates great potential as a safe nutritional answer for a wide variety of health complaints. [citation needed]

A study [2] released in 2005 by Japanese researchers have indicated that F-fucoidan can induce apoptosis in human lymphoma cell lines; as well, French researchers showed in 2002 [3] that F-fucoidan can inhibit hyperplasia in rabbits

What village is it in?

Can you transport it in your golf cart?

Better keep it off your neighbors yard!

Does the family have the monopoly on it?

Does it counteract the village kool aid?

Is it very loud?

Will it stand moving North during the summer?

It's unavoidable were getting older. There's no reason for us not to age on our own terms as much as possible, with maximum health and vibrancy. While aging is not a disease, it is true we become more susceptible to certain illnesses as we grow older. Research shows that more than three-fourths of all deaths in patients over 65 years of age are due to heart problems, diabetes, and certain cancers. These illnesses are affected by our nutritional habits. Our nutrition affects the quality of our lives and the quantity of our years. The food we put inot our bodies determines how we feel and function. What can we do about it? We can reverse, or at least slow down the aging process wit the right foods and activities. We need to consume functional foods like Limu that promote health and fight disease to battle the rising epidimic of chronic illness. Fucoidan is the only natural long-chain polysaccharide complex carbohydrate that most closely resembles the immune and nutritional benefits of human breast milk.

This is the only way you will know if it will do anything for you. Read up on it and get started. Many people have seen amazing results in 60-90 days.

Speaking of nutrition; are there any Health Food Stores in the area?
