Interest in the compound Fucoxanthin has sky rocketed recently thanks in part to Dr. Oz. Which has led us 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.
Rich in Nutrients
Seaweeds are a miraculous food, they contain an array of complex nutrients and minerals not found anywhere else. Of particular interest are the polysaccaride compounds and antioxidants in brown seaweed. On a recent Dr. Oz show he mentioned a report which showed the promise of the antioxidant, fucoxanthin. Fucoxanthin is a caroteniod compound found in brown seaweed aka as wakame. By working to increase the synthesis of a key protein involved in fat metabolism, fucoxanthin helps the body burn extra fat.
Cellular Metabolism: Fucoxanthin
While wakame contains this substance it is not present in high of quantities to make a difference. Researchers recommend using it in supplement form where this key antioxidant 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.
Other Health Benefits
When using Modifilan seaweed extract not only will you be helping your fat metabolism but you get added heavy metal and radiation cleansing effects as well. This product has been studied for its ability to bind to and help the body excrete radioactive isotopes including cesium, strontium and radioactive iodine. This is promising, as the nuclear disaster in Japan has many people worried about potential radiation poisoning.
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.
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.
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.
