Product Name:Fucoidan Extract
Synonym: Fucoidan, fucoidan extract, brown seaweed extract, 85% fucoidan
Gene Introduction: Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide (MW: average 20,000) found mainly in various species of brown algae and brown seaweed such as mozuku, kombu, bladderwrack, wakame, and hijiki (variant forms of fucoidan have also been found in animal species, including the sea cucumber). Fucoidan is used as an ingredient in some dietary supplement products. Fucoidan designates a group of certain fucose-containing sulfated polysaccharides (FCSPs) that have a backbone built of (1→3)-linked α-l-fucopyranosyl or of alternating (1→3)- and (1→4)-linked α-l-fucopyranosyl residues, but also include sulfated galactofucans with backbones built of (1→6)-β-d-galacto- and/or (1→2)-β-d-mannopyranosyl units with fucose or fuco-oligosaccharide branching, and/or glucuronic acid, xylose or glucose substitutions. These FCSPs offer several potentially beneficial bioactive functions for humans. The bioactive properties may vary depending on the source of seaweed, the compositional and structural traits, the content (charge density), distribution, and bonding of the sulfate substitutions, and the purity of the FCSP product. The preservation of the structural integrity of the FCSP molecules essentially depends on the extraction methodology which has a crucial, but partly overlooked, significance for obtaining the relevant structural features required for specific biological activities and for elucidating structure-function relations.
Description: We extract the fucoidan from the Undaria pinnatifida Sporophyll. The fucoidan,which is hydrosoluble heteropolysaccharide, mainly consists of sulfuric ester- Fucose, and also have little quantities of galactose, Mannose, xylose, arabinose, saccharic-aldehyded acid. So it’s also called algin or fucoidan & laminaran, the major effective ingredient is α-L-fucose-4-sulfuric ester. Fucoidan is an excellent raw material of health-foods and drug medicine. Because of natural Organic sulfate radical, fucoidan has characteristic of high molecular compound containing the negative ion. Studies showed that fucoidan has many physiologically actives, such as inhibiting blood clotting, lowering the blood fats,repelling chronic renal-failure, anti-tumor, anti-virus, regenerating tissue, Suppressing gastric ulcer, enhancing bodies'immunity, etc.
