Seaweed is a rich source of vitamins - A, B, C, D, E and K. Its Vitamin C content is particularly high. All of these are necessary to bolster the human immune system, which is one of seaweeds noted benefits. Also, did you know - in fact it contains the highest natural concentration of calcium of any food - 10 times more than milk.
But what makes it quite extraordinary is the trace element called Fucoidan. Fucoidan is a substance found in the cell walls of macrocystis seaweed - used medicinally for a wide variety of health purposes. “Fucoidan produced by Macrocystis pyrifera is a powerful immune modulator, which can enhance NK cell activation, DC maturation, CTL activity, Th1 immune responses, antigen specific antibody production and memory T cell generation. Fucoidan from M. pyrifera may be a potentially useful therapeutic agent for infectious diseases, cancer and effective adjuvant for vaccine” Jun-O Jin and Qing Yu authors. Quite simply, it is quite incredible and you get this element in your seaweed supplement - amazing!
