Positive Health Benefits of Modifilan Brown Seaweed Extract

                                  Fucoxanthin – Brown Seaweed Extract

Interest in the
compound Fucoxanthin has sky rocketed thanks to Dr. Oz. This leads me to want to share a bit more about this amazing substance. Fucoxanthin is a seaweed compound and we are big proponents of consuming
seaweed, a natural wild vegetable from the ocean. One reason we like
wild foods is because they offer a richer and wider nutritional content
than farmed foods.

Modifilan Brown Seaweed Extract is Rich in Nutrients
Modifilan Brown Seaweed contain an array of complex nutrients and
minerals not found nowhere else. Particularly interesting are the
polysaccaride compounds and antioxidants in brown seaweed. Dr. Oz show has promoted a report which demonstrates the promise of the
antioxidant, fucoxanthin.  Fucoxanthin is a caroteniod compound found in Modifilan Brown Seaweed

Cellular Metabolism: Fucoxanthin – The “Fat Burning” Component
While simple Brown Seaweed contains fucoxanthin, this substance it is not present in high enough quantities
to make a difference. Researchers recommend using it in supplement form
where Fucoxanthi is concentrated to levels that make it
useful as a fat burner. This amazing substance increases cellular
metabolism even while the body is inactive. This in turn also helps to
normalize cholesterol levels in the body. Taking Modifilan Brown
Seaweed extract in addition to a healthy diet can help you get over the
hump and headed to the proper weight and cholesterol level for your
body.

One of the main actions of Fucoxanthin is to increase the synthesis of a
key protein involved in fat metabolism. This then helps the body burn
extra fat.



Heavy Metal Cleansing
In a previous blog post I
talked about the ability of seaweed to cleanse heavy metals from the
body.  Modifilan being a concentrated supplement greatly assists in the
removal of heavy metals from the body.  Our environmental conditions
today means that we are exposed to heavy metals, of these metals mercury
is common contaminant we must deal with.  In studies researchers have
found that Modifilan binds to and removes this toxic heavy metal from
the body without incident.


Brown Seaweed Extract the Heart and More Research
Researchers have also found that Brown Seaweed extract is useful for the heart, it is cardio protective.
And it has certain anti-inflammatory properties that benefit the gastro
intestinal tract. As well as protecting the thyroid gland and causing
certain types of cancer cells to self destruct.

Final Thoughts
Along
with its belly fat burning properties, Brown Seaweed extract has a
many positive health benefits. Whether using it for weight loss or to
cleanse the body this is a powerful supplement that will help you on
your path toward total body well being.

Using Brown Seaweed Extract

Brown seaweed extract is truly a dynamic product, a sampling of the reports indicates that people who use brown seaweed extract experience numerous benefits.Improves the Effects of Diet and Exercise:

The report on brown seaweed has been a mixed bag; mostly positive with the most positive results coming when it is combined with diet and exercise. So if you are looking to lose a little weight and want positive results, combine brown seaweed with diet and exercise.

Brown seaweed extract was popularized as a weight loss product by Dr. Oz, he was and you can use this to regain your perfect healthy weight. It has been indicated that this supplement helps by increasing fat metabolism, which can help to shed unwanted pounds. We have also heard reports of brown seaweed help to quell the appetite. This has helped people maintain healthy eating habits, the sense of being full faster has stopped them from over indulging. And anecdotal reports suggest people using brown seaweed extract notice an increase in energy and a more balanced energy throughout the day.

Why Can’t I Just Eat Seaweed?
Well, you can and we certainly do encourage that but there is a difference between eating seaweed and using brown seaweed extract. The treasured elements in brown seaweeds, are enhanced through a special cold-temperature extraction technology. Which keeps intact the delicate molecular structure of brown seaweed. And MODIFILAN is not just another dry seaweed product – it is highly concentrated product. FORTY pounds of raw seaweed is needed to make ONE pound of MODIFILAN. So why you can eat seaweed you won’t be getting the benefits that are reported by those who use brown seaweed extract.

Reports suggest that the effects of Modilfilan brown seaweed are enhanced when used in conjunction with licorice extract. This may be due to the fact that licorice can increase metabolism, when combined they seem to work synergisticaly to support healthy weight. So as you begin to improve your diet and exercise regularly you may beginning seeing added weight loss particularly in the mid section, when using brown seaweed and licorice root extract. Reports suggest that it will take 1-2 weeks to notice the benefits of these herb, depending on your routine.

– Help to detoxify smokers from strontium and cadmium.



Heavy Metal Toxicity and Immune Health
Brown seaweed is not just good for losing belly fat, in fact this is a side benefit to its main application, which is its ability to detoxify the body. Aliginate compounds in concentrated brown seaweed such as Modifilan bind to toxic metals and radiation. The body is then better able to effectively deal with these toxic compounds and expel them from the bodies. Below you will find a breakdown of the major compounds in Modifilian and their purpose.

Detail Breakdown of Brown Seaweed

*Organic Iodine feeds the Thyroid Gland, which controls metabolism and promotes maturation of the nervous system. Iodine is important for thyroid disorders, wherever underactive or overactive.

*Alginate is a natural absorbent of radioactive elements, heavy metals and free radicals. It has the unique ability of binding heavy metals and radioactive elements to its own molecules. As the Alginate cannot be broken down by the bile or saliva and cannot be absorbed by the body, it is secreted from the body together with the heavy metals and radioactive substances.

*Fucoidan causes certain types of rapidly growing cancer cells to self-destruct. Promoting apoptosis (self-destruction of cancer cells), Fucoidan helps to naturally eliminate harmful cells from organism.

*Laminarin is a polysaccharide helpful in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Does Modifilan Brown Seaweed Extract Work?

That is a darn good question. Does it work? Will you lose weight if you use it?


Original R and D
Lets start the conversation by saying Modifilan was designed as a natural detox remedy to cleanse the body of heavy metals and radiation poisoning. The maker of Modifilan is aware that it is being touted as a weight loss supplement and the maker wants it to be known that while it can help with weight loss the R and D has been focused on detox.
Magic Bullet
Folks I hate to break it to you but there is no such thing as a magic bullet. You cannot simply take something to lose weight. YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR. YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR EATING HABITS AND EXERCISE HABITS. Brown seaweed extract does increase fat metabolism and increasing fat metabolism will help you lose weight. And, using Modifilan within the context of a balanced diet and exercise regime is your best approach.  Also consistency and commitment are important, you need to follow through to reap results.
Bigger Picture
Actual fat intake is only part of the picture, natural, raw, plant oils and fats are good for you, actually many fats are good for you such as fish oils. Fat intake may not be the “problem”. But, sugar intake is an issue, there are no two ways around this. Your body will store excess sugar it can’t metabolize as fat this will cause weight gain.
Our Stance
While we have benefited in sales from the increased attention this product has received we encourage a balanced lifestyle with supplements as an addition. They are called SUPPLEMENTS, ie they supplement the diet. If the diet is poor do not expect much from the supplement or even a lasting change. We have many natural healthy options available from raw plant proteins, raw healthy fats and low glycemic sweeteners. Green powders are also a great aid to weightloss they provide a wealth of nutrients with a minimum of calories.  Please refer to our earlier Post for some ideas and suggestions.
Bottomline
Modifilan will work within reason when used wisely and in combination with a balanced diet and plenty of exercise. It was also reported that the use of licorice extract along with modifilan boosts the weight loss potential of the product.
Summary
Modifilan combined with a healthy diet and exercise will be a benefit to your weight loss goals. But, only if you are consistent with the program you set for yourself.  Including green foods such asGreens First Powder in your diet will give you nutrition without calories. Also healthy oils, particularly coconut oil is a great aid to a fitness regime because the medium chain triglycerides get used as energy quickly by the body. Low glycemic sweeteners are also an important piece of the weightloss picture, you need to cut out the refined sugar and related products. Consider using stevia, agave nectar or coconut sugar instead; shop for these at our Sweeteners page.

Last but not least; the emotional level. It would be incomplete to leave the emotional piece of the equation out.  Food has a very powerful emotional impact on our lives and making changes around food can be very challenging on the emotional level.  I, Mark D’Aquila the author of these posts am also a specialist in the use of flower remedies for emotional healing.  And, I can help you address any emotional condition you want to change.

Seaweed for Health

At Zebra Organics we stock a variety of healthy foods and a favorite of ours is seaweed. These vegetables of the sea contain a wide range of nutrients not found as easily in land vegetables. The are fun to eat and add variety and nutrition to the diet.

Nori

Seaweed is a common food in Japanese cuisine, one the most popular varieties being Nori.  One of the great benefits to consuming nori is that it contains an abundance of omega 3 fatty acids.  Omega 3 fats nourish the skin as well as the brain and modulate cholesterol levels and inflammatory compounds the body produces. And, it is high in vitamin C, proteins and mineral salts.

Kombu/Kelp
Kelp and kombu are both members of the same plant family, with kelp often being referred to as “wild atlantic kombu”. The main benefit of these sea vegetables is their rich content of minerals particularly iodine. They are both a natural source of this essential thyroid metabolism regulating mineral.  This is the sea vegetable which is rich in the anti oxidant compound fucoxanthin. Fucoxanthin assists the body with fat metabolism, thus it may aid with weight loss.

Dulse
One of my personal favorites of the sea vegetable varieties is Dulse. Like nori, dulse can be eaten straight out of the package making a quick healthy snack.  It is exceptionally tasty and contains many of the same benefits as other seaweeds: rich in minerals, protein dense, good source of iodine, healing and cleansing aliginate compounds.  Its deep red color and soft texture make it a great addition to soups and salads.

Additional benefits of consuming sea vegetables is their ability to bind to heavy metals and radio active particles and safely help your body remove them.   It is safe to say that nearly everyone can benefit from adding these miracles of the sea to their diet.  To make that easier for our customers we are running a sale on all Maine Coast Sea Vegetables, now is a good time to stock up and save.
