Maritech® Fucus vesiculosus extract

Maritech® Fucus vesiculosus extract is a highly characterised, certified organic fucoidan ingredient sourced from wild Fucus vesiculosus seaweed. This seaweed (commonly known as bladderwrack) grows in the pristine ocean waters of Nova Scotia and Brittany, where it is harvested on an environmentally sustainable basis. The unique fucoidan found in Fucus vesiculosus seaweed is highly sulfated, with a backbone containing predominantly fucose. A small ‘branch’ of the molecule can be seen on the left. Fucoidan extracted from Fucus vesiculosus seaweed has been shown to have a range of biological properties, including beneficial effects in the areas of inflammation, immune modulation, gut health and enzyme inhibition. Clinically tested and safe, this high-purity natural ingredient is a versatile and superior choice for a variety of nutraceutical formulations.
