Life Extension Optimized Fucoidan: In recent years, scientific interest has intensified around fucoidan, a little-known molecule found primarily in edible seaweeds native to the Japanese diet. Nearly 900 published studies indicate its power to promote healthy immune function, cell-to-cell communication, and tissue repair. Fucoidans also combat metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease by modulating glucose and insulin levels, disrupting advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and lowering triglycerides. Research has shown that fucoidans show tremendous potential in the management of arthritis by reducing cytokines (inflammatory chemicals).
Many experts now believe that fucoidan is one of the key nutrients responsible for the exceptionally long, healthy lives enjoyed in Okinawa, which for decades boasted the world’s highest concentration of centenarians (individuals at least a century old).
A single vegetarian capsule of Optimized Fucoidan with Maritech® 926 provides 88.5 mg of standardized Undaria pinnatifida extract, equaling the amount of fucoidan typically consumed daily in the traditional Japanese diet.
Dosage: One Optimized Fucoidan capsule daily.
