Fucoidan promotes optimal gastrointestinal and digestive system health
The number of people concerned with maintaining gastrointestinal health is rapidly increasing around the world as more and more people are consuming foods with more fat content and less dietary fiber. Once in the gastrointestinal tract, fucoidan attaches to the lining where it has a protective effect. In addition, it stimulates the gut lining to “self-repair” tissue. Fucoidan, because of its immune system promoting activity, is a tremendous aid in maintaining proper gastrointestinal function and health.
One can change their eating habits and start eating correctly with more greens for their digestive system and gastrointestinal tract but if this is inconvenient in the fast-paced environment many of us live with day-in and day-out, fucoidan can naturally provide assistance to the immune system and it is very important to keep in mind that 80% of the immune system starts in the digestive system. Fucoidan can in fact repair tissue regenerate cells so ingesting fucoidan to strengthen the immune system is paramount to a healthier lifestyle. Fucoidan can also assist in creating natural energy, eliminate and detox the both of free radicals with antioxidants and helping with the respiratory system.
