What is Fucoxanthin?
Fucoxanthin is a type of carotenoid pigment found in brown sea weeds such as wakame and hijiki and to a lesser extent in red and green sea weeds. Although brown seaweed is the richest source of fucoxanthin, it is not easily absorbed and utilized directly from that source. Do not consume large amounts of seaweed which is rich in iodine; excessive iodine consumption may interfere with normal thyroid functioning.
Fucoxanthin is a natural unique carotenoid specific to several different types of brown seaweed, and is also the first marine algae-derived ingredient with a clinically proven thermogenic effect carotenoid. Metabolic and nutritional studies demonstrated that fucoxanthin promotes fat burning within fat cells and has potent weight loss effect.
- Anti-clotting, anti-tumor and anti-HIV.
- Treat nephrotic syndrome and early- medium of chronic renal failure without toxic side effects.
- Improve renal function and lower serum creatinine.
- Anti-cancer and antioxidan.
- Loss weight if the weight gain is directly related to thyroid disorders.
How Fucoxanthin works:
Fucoxanthin, via its metabolites, seems to be stored in fat cells for a prolonged period of time and can induce fat loss while inhibiting fat cell differentiation and proliferation.It also possesses other health benefits, such as correcting abnormalities in glucose metabolism in muscle tissue which can help diabetics and might reduce cholesterol levels and triglycerides by currenty unverified mechanisms. Reductions in blood pressure and reductions in both liver fat stores and liver enzyme values have been noted with fucoxanthin supplementation in humans.
This fucoxanthin supplement is a 25% extract and calls for a dosage of 9.6-32mg per day. A good starting point is 20mg per day. Fucoxanthin works synergistically when taken alongside fatty acids such as Fish Oil or Conjugated Linoleic Acid by helping to improve absorption.
A standard fucoxanthin dosage for a 100% extract is 2.4-8mg per day. However, such small dosages are difficult to accurately measure, which is why we offer a 25% extract instead.
Since fucoxanthin is difficult to find in pure form, people who take such a supplement do so as part of brown seaweed or as a 5 percent or 10 percent extract of seaweed. One gram of seaweed has several times the amount of iodine that most adults require on a daily basis. Therefore, a potential side effect could include changes in thyroid function due to iodine excess. It is difficult to specify what side effects it would have until ingredient suppliers are able to concentrate it from seaweed to a 90 percent plus extract concentration.
