Natural ingredients manufacturer NP Nutra® has produced a new potent extract from the highest quality brown seaweed on the planet. This extract contains over 85% of Fucoidan and is manufactured at NP Nutra’s ISO and Kosher certified facility.

Fucoidan (Laminaria japonica) is found primarily in the cell walls of several species of brown seaweed, such as kombu, limu moui, wakame, hijiki, and bladderwrack. Lending a slippery texture to these sea plants, Fucoidan also provides protection for them, even in strong sunlight and harsh environments.

NP Nutra’s Fucoidan extract is particularly rich in U-fucoidan. “Although many seaweed species contain U-fucoidan, we have produced a very high ratio product of U-fucoidan/total fucoidan,” said Thomas Walton, managing director of NP Nutra®.

Fucoidan has indeed piqued the interest of the scientific community. It is the subject of substantial pharmaceutical research and has been cited in approximately 700 studies published in the database of the National Library of Medicine. The astonishing amount of research on Fucoidan has revealed many potential health benefits. One exciting finding is that Fucoidan encourages normal and healthy cellular growth. It has also been found to support and enhance the all-important immune system in several ways, including stimulating the body's natural killer cells and increasing certain proteins that are produced by white blood cells.

“Over the last few years Fucoidan has seen a steady increase of interest from a diverse number of product developers in both the alternative and mainstream medicine fields,” said Thomas Walton, managing director of NP Nutra®. “Our Fucoidan P.E. 85% is already stimulating strong interest in the wellness industry.”
