The natural compound 'fucoidan' has been gaining ground as an effective way to true the flu, which oftens infects as much as 1/4 of the population every year.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/02/2013 -- Scientists have discovered that a natural compound called ‘fucoidan’ contains immune-boosting qualities that can be invaluable during the flu season, especially for the elderly. This antiviral compound naturally occurs in U. pinnatifida, a form of brown seaweed known more commonly as ‘wakame’ or ‘mekabu.’ While wakame has been consumed in Japan, China, and other East Asian nations for hundreds of years, fucoidan has only recently been gaining attention in research studies for the extraordinary benefits it provides to the human immune system.
Both the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the Journal of Nutrition have published multiple studies of fucoidan’s ability to boost the immune system to ward off illness. Though fucoidan can be derived from many sources, studies are showing that wakame-derived fucoidan is the only kind that contains such impressive antiviral qualities. The purest wakame-derived fucoidan currently available is Fucoidan Force™, a 100% natural supplement that provides the same complete benefit of the fucoidan used in recent studies.
While fucoidan has been shown to be effective as a stand-alone immune booster, scientists have found that this natural compound also boosts the effectiveness of flu vaccines, especially for vulnerable patient populations like the very young and the elderly. In clinical studies, volunteers taking fucoidan extract had much stronger immune systems and were less likely to be infected with flu than the control group that did not receive fucoidan.
The Danger of Influenza
Taking preventative measures during flu season is critical, especially for the very young and the aging population. While many people are willing to laugh off the flu as a common cold, it is important to be aware that death attributable to influenza and causational cases of pneumonia exceeded the epidemic level for 13 consecutive weeks during the 2012-13 flu season, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The CDC also reported that as many as 9.9% of all deaths in the U.S. last season were caused by the flu; a staggering 149 cases of pediatric mortality were also attributable to this incredibly contagious virus.
Many healthy people consider flu symptoms to be merely inconvenient, and do not bother with preventative measures against it. While these individuals may indeed be strong enough to withstand the flu, it is a matter of personal responsibility to still take preventative measures; the inconvenient sniffle one person experiences could be the cause of a fatal infection for the child who sits next to them.
The Natural Solution
Thankfully, fucoidan is an incredibly effective antiviral which can protect people of any age from the flu virus. This natural flu-fighter also has no reported side effects, despite more than a decade of intensive research. Fucoidan works by boosting the immune system and increasing the production of “natural killer cells” which are responsible for destroying invading pathogens. Certain viruses that envelop themselves in healthy cells can be nearly impossible for human immune systems to detect, yet research also supports that fucoidan improves the immune system’s ability to target these hidden viral infections.
Incredibly, fucoidan’s health benefits do not stop with the flu and other viral infections. The same immune-boosting qualities that make fucoidan such an effective antiviral are also effective at fighting off other illnesses. The increased production of natural killer cells has also been shown in numerous studies to be an effective way to combat cancer and other enveloped viruses like herpes simplex and hepatitis D. Additionally, it has been shown to have cell-regenerative and protective qualities; studies on the National Library of Medicine have displayed fucoidan’s ability to regenerate cartilage and bone marrow cells that are often damaged by chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Because of fucoidan’s incredible health benefits, many companies have taken to marketing this natural health aide in dishonest ways. Many producers use seaweed other than wakame to create fucoidan extracts that have limited effects, no effects, or even negative effects on the immune system. For this reason, it is important to purchase your fucoidan supplement from a reliable and open source. Fucoidan Force™ is the only fucoidan extract currently on the market that thoroughly discloses the benefits, research, and power behind its uniquely-grown wakame seaweed.
