- Fucoidan is the amazing extract of several species of seaweed. Undaria pinnatifida seaweed is harvested sustainably from the pristine waters of the South Pacific, and the key long-chain polysaccharide Fucoidan is extracted using organically certified advanced solvent-free technology developed in Australia. Fucoidan has been identified as an important component of the Okinawan longevity diet.
Human studies in Australia have shown Fucoidan to have immune-supporting properties including T-Cell and stem cell supporting roles in the human body. Fucoidan supports the skin matrix molecules from breakdown by UV-induced enzyme activity. Tests with Fucoidan have also been shown to significantly support joint health.
Our Fucoidan capsules come in two versions - standard and ultra capsules. Standard capsules have 50% purity of Undaria Pinnatifida, coming in 60 x 250mg capsules. The ultra capsules have the highest possible purity of Fucoidan available at 85-95%, and come in 60 x 250mg capsules as well. The ultra capsules also contain Fucus Vesiculosus, extracted from Fucus seaweed for extra immunity benefits.
- Take one 250mg capsule of Fucoidan per day for maximum health benefits. This is equivalent to the average traditional consumption of fucoidan by the Okinawans - approximately 8g of dried Undaria seaweed per day.
After opening, please keep me in the fridge.

- "This product has a great deal of benefits that I have experienced, and is the best in boosting immunity. Since being on this supplement I have not been sick in >6 months, I use to get sick at least 4x a year. This is an excellent and strong antioxidant - I've noticed a decrease in aches and pains, increased exercise tolerance, fast healing of wounds (cuts, lacerations, abrasions) and better gastrointestinal function. It improves the quality of your skin and I have had less acne. It has been known to help with cancer - and that would make sense mainly because it increases your body's immune system."

Matakana SuperFoods is a New Zealand-based leader in the research and marketing of new and novel foods with unique qualities and super nutrients to support health and well-being. Their goal is to bring to the market the latest high-quality, super-nutrient functional foods, snack foods and cosmetics.
While extracts of various foods have been used in supplements for many years, a new movement away from supplements and towards whole Superfoods has arisen, and promises to offer greater benefits to health through the premise that the synergistic interaction of the nutrients gained from natural wholefoods has more to offer than one or two components being extracted and put into a tablet. Often the balance, ratio and type of nutrients found in wholefoods leads to superior assimilation and absorption by the body. There is a renewed belief that eating wholefoods (and particularly wholefoods with super-nutrient qualities) is of greater benefit than simple supplementation with individual extracts.
