Fucoidan Benefits

1) Apoptosis induction Activity

2) Antitumor Activity

3) Immunostimulatory Activity

4) Antiobesity Activity

5) Blood pressure lowering Effect

6) Hypoglycemic Activity




1) Apoptosis induction Activity

Apoptosis Induction activity
When measuring the apoptosis induction activity of Okinawa Mozuku extracted Fucoidan and fucoidan extracted from kelp, it was found that Fucoidan extracted from Okinawa Mozuku had a more significant apoptosis inducing effect than kelp extracted fucoidan.

»What is Apoptosis?
Apoptosis is a process of programmed cell death. "Apoptosis induction activity" by Fucoidan have experienced in scientific studies and criminal research.


2) Antitumor Activity

Apoptosis Induction activity
While there was no noticeable decrease in viability of healthy cells (PBL), the concentration dependency of tumor cell (Molt-4) survival was suppressed. It was therefore inferred that Okinawa Mozuku extracted fucoidan has specific effects on cancer cells.


Apoptosis Induction activity
The left picture shows that tumor cells that are continuously incubated, continued to multiply. The right picture shows that cell multiplication is suppressed with Okinawa Mozuku extracted fucoidan.


Apoptosis Induction activity
Oral administration of Okinawa Mozuku extracted Fucoidan resulted in the suppression of turmor cells in a Sarcoma180 inoculated mouse.


3) Immunostimulatory Activity

Apoptosis Induction activity
Glucose consumption was used as a point of reference for measuring the activation of mice macrophaage. Okinawa Mozuku extracted fucoidan caused an increase in glucose consumption and therefore it can be concluded that it has causes immunstimulatory activity.


4) Antiobesity Effect

Apoptosis Induction activity
Fucoidan extracted from Okinawa Mozuku is a lypolytic enzyme which inhibits the activity of pancreatic lipase. In experiments where rats were orally administered fucoidan, increases in neutral fat in the blood after administration were suppressed.


Apoptosis Induction activity
By adding fucoidan extracted from Okinawa Mozuku to a high fat meal, increases in body weight and uterine fatty tissue weight was suppressed.
