About the application of fucoidan
In Japan, Fucoidan approved as a food additive:
In USA, Fucoidan approved for inclusion in the GRAS lis:
in EU,fucoidan approved as a new food:
Fucoidan extract from the seaweed Fucus vesiculosus can be used as Foods including food supplements as defined in Directive 2002/46/EC for the general population
As a new product, fucoidan is developed in China as a new prodrug or a new marine drug with potential. Domestic researchers pay more attention to its similarity to traditional Chinese medicine. Therapeutic effect. In the international market, it meets consumers in the form of healthy food. The end products are in the form of beverages (cool water), capsules, and tablets. Consumers abroad have accepted the idea that fucoidan has anti-tumor, anti-oxidation, immune regulation and improvement of the body's immunity, and it is a pure natural extract. The more well-known product brands abroad include Best Fucoidan 80% in the United States, Apoidan-U and ALGA in Japan.
In the development process of health food, our country has gone through three stages, and three generations of health food have been formed at the same time.
The first-generation health food is a primary health food. The function of this type of food is inferred based on the fortification of nutrients in the food. It has not been proved by strict experiments or scientifically.
The second-generation health food refers to foods that have been proved to have a certain physiological regulation function through animal experiments and human experiments. The third-generation health food not only has a specific physiological regulation function that requires animal or human experiments, but also needs to determine the chemical structure and content of the functional components with this function.
The third-generation health food has the characteristics of clear functional ingredients, measurable content, clear mechanism of action, substantial research data, and affirmative clinical effects.
Among the existing health foods in my country, the third-generation health foods only account for 10%.
Fucoidan is a functional ingredient, and its mechanism of action is similar to that of heparin. Therefore, the use of fucoidan as a raw material to develop a new type of third-generation health food is the first product developed using seaweed. Fucoidan has a variety of physiological functions such as anti-tumor, anti-oxidation, anti-radiation, lowering blood lipids, anti-virus, etc. In addition to the previously completed and ongoing application developments, it can also be developed. Kind of marine health food and marine medicine. (1) The blood lipid-lowering effect of kelp fucoidan can be developed into a health food or marine medicine for regulating blood lipids; (2) The high-sulfur component of kelp fucoidan has a significant inhibitory effect on prawn viruses. Feed additives for cultured prawns have a wide range of application prospects; (3) Kelp natural sulfate polysaccharides have similar structures with sea cucumber polysaccharides and abalone polysaccharides, and can be used as raw materials for immune-enhancing health foods; (4) Kelp fucoidan The high uronic acid component can inhibit the growth of Helicobacter pylori and can be developed into anti-ulcer drugs.
In summary, fucoidan has many unique and excellent properties. I hope that more people can study it, promote it, and promote it. So that it can play its role as soon as possible to serve human health.
