“Fucoidan is a natural sulphated polysaccharide that exists mainly in the cell wall matrix of various species of brown seaweed.

“The brown seaweeds containing fucoidan are widely consumed as part of the normal diet in East Asia, particularly Japan, China and Korea.

“Fucoidan mediates its activity through various mechanisms such as induction of cell cycle arrest, apoptosis and immune system activation.

“Additional activities of fucoidan have been reported that may be linked to the observed anti-cancer properties and these include induction of inflammation through the immune system, oxidative stress and stem cell mobilization.”
