Used In: Classic - Immune - Focus


Fucoxanthin is a natural compound found in edible brown seaweed. For hundreds of years Asian cultures have consumed seaweed as a regular part of their diet. When researchers realized Asian cultures were much healthier than those in the west, Asian diets were examined. The ocean is an excellent source of nutrient rich plants compared to land based plants that are affected by depleted nutrient levels in our soils. Brown seaweed was one of the food sources that interested these researchers and Fucoxanthin was found to be a benefit of this diet.

Fucoxanthin is rich in vitamins and minerals that include calcium, magnesium, potassium, iodine, iron, and zinc, as well as vitamins C, B1, B2, B6 and B12.

Fucoxanthin belongs to a special class of carotenoids known as xanthophylls, which are known to stimulate the proteins that cause fat oxidation in the stomach. Additionally, Fucoxanthin studies indicate that it stimulates the liver to produce the omega-3 fatty acid. Thus, it may combat bad cholesterol.

Clinical studies have shown the following remarkable results:

  • improvement in mental alertness, circulation, joint function, energy, and cardiovascular health
  • safely boosts cellular metabolism without side effects
  • balances insulin and blood glucose levels
  • promotes the loss of abdominal fat
  • may help fight diabetes


Some metabolic and nutritional studies indicate that Fucoxanthin promotes the loss of abdominal fat by targeting a protein that increases the rate at which fat is burned. Research is ongoing.

Therefore, Fucoxanthin is conducive to building a healthy lifestyle and maintaining stable vitality.
