370 – UltraFucoidan™ from Seaweed Stimulates Immune Cells

UltraFucoidan™ also helps to speed recovery from illness

In this interview with Jay Hyeok, we will discuss fucoidan from seaweed. Seaweed has long been recognized for its rich nutritional value. Seaweed has been a part of some traditional diets for centuries. What modern science and technology is able to do now is to identify the most important constituents and articulating the benefits.

Specifically we are discussing UltraFucoidan™ from Vesta Ingredients. In our search for effective and innovative nutraceuticals, we look to the companies that make the ingredients that are effective. Your supplement needs clinically studied, trademarked and branded ingredients in order to guarantee effectiveness and safety. Otherwise how do you know what’s in the supplement you are taking?


UltraFucoidan™ is a complex sulfated polysaccharide consisting of various monosaccharides, uronic acids, and natural sulfate from brown seaweed. Brown seaweed is a major component of diets of the Japanese, who are long known for having the highest life expectancy rates.

UltraFucoidan™ has a strong effect on supporting the immune system for enhancement of osteoblast production and healthy connective tissue. Fucoidan is an intense antioxidant and has also been shown to stimulate the production of immune cells to prevent disease.

UltraFucoidan™ activity is related to sulfate content and position, molecular weight, and monosaccharides composition. The higher content of sulfate groups often presents the higher biological activity in native fucoidans. UltraFucoidan™ has over 25% sulfur content, higher than competitor products, for superior bioactivity and effectiveness.

The Science of Fucoidan

Google Scholar

How can the average consumer know if there is significant science on a particular nutrient? My favorite resource is Google Scholar (scholar.google.com). You can search for the scientific and clinical research. You can filter by year and you can search with additional search terms in order to be more specific. Here are the results of my recent search.

The consumer who does the best research will get the best results. Do your homework. Identify reputable companies. Seek to understand the science of nutrition and look for credible, reliable and accurate resources. The more you know, the better choices you will make. Better choices lead to better outcomes.
