About Our Fucoidan
Marinova is the worlds undisputed leader in manufacturing and supplying premium fucoidan extracts to the nutritional supplement sector. Their commitment to developing novel fucoidan extracts for nutraceutical applications has resulted in a range of products that are superior in every respect.
Maritech® Extract – A key factor influencing the therapeutic potential of fucoidan is the method by which it is extracted from the macro algae. Marinova has shown that precipitation, or solvent extraction, can cause degradation of the polysaccharide and result in solvent residues in the final extract. For this reason we have developed a superior extraction process that retains the molecular and bioactive properties of natural fucoidan. Only the water-based Maritech® process used by Marinova can create high-purity, organic fucoidan extracts that remain unadulterated in chemical structure. The Maritech® coldwater and solvent-free process is central to our capabilities and our position as the leader in this field. The Maritech® process also allows the molecular weight parameters of each product to be modified resulting in significantly enhanced efficacy and bioactivity at significantly lower concentrations.
Using the Maritech® process, Marinova produces an extensive range of fucoidan extracts for nutritional applications. The Maritech® range includes the following products:
- Maritech® Fucoidan Extracts: These are high purity (>90%) fucoidan extracts, manufactured from over 10 species of seaweeds. These extracts are certified organic and provide the therapeutic benefits of seaweed in a concentrated form without the odour, taste or colouration.
- Maritech® Synergy Extracts: These high purity extracts are natural complexes of co-extracted marine polyphenols and fucoidan with a guaranteed purity of 90%. This combination provides a stable source of marine polyphenols with prolonged activity and superior health benefits of both components. The extracts have very high antioxidant capacity, as determined by independent analysis.
Marinova’s Maritech® Triple E (Electrolyte Enhanced Extraction) technology allows us to tailor our Maritech® range to create extracts which target specific nutritional applications. By varying the amounts of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc, the functional potential of our Triple E range of products is vast. These extracts provide novelty and efficacy to nutraceutical formulations, particularly in the areas of joint health and sports nutrition.
Using the finest seaweeds from Tasmania, Nova Scotia, Patagonia and the Pacific Islands our products are superior in every respect. They are Organic, Halal and Kosher certified and guaranteed by Marinova to contain the specified fucoidan content. All Maritech® products are suitable for use in capsules, tablets, beverages and gels.

AUSTRALIAN SCIENTISTS IN SWINE FLU BREAKTHROUGH
Seaweed Derivative Shown to Inhibit H1N1 Virus
In a breakthrough that offers new hope for the containment of influenza outbreaks, an Australian biotechnology company has isolated a natural extract from seaweed which has been shown to inhibit the H1N1 virus.
The extract – known as Maritech® 926 – is a fucoidan compound derived from the Undaria pinnatifida species of seaweed. In vitro tests performed under contract by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the US, have shown that Maritech® 926 can inhibit the H1N1 influenza virus at extremely low concentrations.
Developed by biotechnology company Marinova Pty Ltd, Maritech® 926 is a natural polysaccharide which has immediate market potential in nutritional supplements, hand washes and nasal delivery products which target the spread and prevention of viral conditions. Scope also exists for the compound to be included in pharmaceutical and medical device applications. As a result of these findings, Marinova has filed for patent protection over the application of Maritech® 926 and other fucoidan extracts in a range of anti-viral applications.
In announcing the findings and patent filing, Marinova’s Senior Scientist, Dr Helen Fitton, said:
“Fucoidan extracts such as Maritech® 926 are known to have significant inhibitory effects on a range of coated viruses. We are particularly excited by the fact that these seaweed extracts have now been shown to have an inhibitory effect on H1N1 at extremely low concentrations. With H1N1 already becoming resistant to some other antiviral agents, we believe that Maritech® 926 offers a potent, natural alternative which supports the immune system against viral attacks”.-
More About Fucoidan?
Fucoidan is like a closely guarded secret, as an antioxidant it has certainly piqued the interest of many scientists. Fucoidan has been scientifically proven to enhance immunity and cellular health to the point where it helps heal wounds, supports normal blood pressure, detoxifies the body against heavy metals, helps prevent the common colds and flu as well as, yes fight Cancer. Yes I said fight cancer!
To learn more about Fucoidan’s cancer fighting attributes you can review over 860 articles at PubMed.com. Simply Search “fuclidan/cancer”.
Fucoidan actually stimulates apoptosis activity with in the body. Apoptosis is a form of cell death in which a programmed sequence of events leads to the elimination of cells without releasing harmful substances into the surrounding area. Apoptosis plays a crucial role in developing and maintaining health by eliminating old cells, unnecessary cells, and unhealthy cells. The human body replaces perhaps a million cells a second. Too little or too much apoptosis plays a role in a great many diseases. When programmed cell death does not work right, cells that should be eliminated may hang around and become immortal. For example, in cancer and leukemia. When apoptosis works overly well, it kills too many cells and inflicts grave tissue damage. This is the case in strokes and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer, Huntington and Parkinson diseases. Apoptosis is also called programmed cell death or cell suicide. Strictly speaking, the term apoptosis refers only to the structural changes cells go through, and programmed cell death refers to the complete underlying process, but the terms are often used interchangeably.
Fucoidan the “miracle nutrient” is a sulfated polysaccharide found mainly in various species of brown seaweed such as kombu, limu moui, bladderwrack, wakame, mozuku, and hijiki (variant forms of fucoidan have also been found in animal species, including the sea cucumber)
Beginning around 1970 researchers began studying fucoidan, and since that time fucoidan has been cited in over 800 studies published in the National Library of Medicine”s data base. www.pubmed.com The overall findings of this body of research, coupled with evidence provided by a long history of use of the fucoidan-bearing seaweed in areas such as Tonga, Hawaii and Japan indicates that fucoidan might be used as a safe, nutritional answer to a wide variety of health complaints.
Historical medicinal uses of seaweed are vast and ranged from topical burn and goiter therapy to the softening of tumors. These ancient civilizations may not have known that it was the fucoidan contained in these plants that gave them their beneficial properties, but they did know the plants offered powerful healing benefits.
The renowned longevity and good health of the Tongan people, especially statistically lower incidences of cancers and other diseases that plague the Western world, has piqued the interest of the medical and scientific communities who are keen to unlock the secret of this gift from the sea.
By absorbing trace minerals and vitamins from the nourishing waters, limu moui contains no less than 77 nutrients, including C, E and multiple B vitamins, selenium, beta-carotene, protein, iodine, calcium and iron. But the key ingredient of limu that is attracting the most attention is an essential sugar compound?a polysaccharide or glyconutrient?called fucoidan.
Medical treatments today focus on drugs and surgery, but there is a growing awareness in the health community of the tremendous potential of natural alternatives, especially researched super nutrients like the fucoidan found in limu moui. Fucoidan contains all of the eight simple sugars. These simple sugars are necessary for cell-to-cell communication and a healthy immune system. Although these nutrients are essential, there lacking in most of our diets.
There are two studies out of Canada that show fucoidan may be a potential therapy for Alzheimer”s disease. One study showed that fucoidan inhibited the advancement of several chronic degenerative diseases, including hardening and narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis), heart attack (myocardial infarction) and Alzheimer”s disease.
Fucoidan has potent anticoagulant and antithrombin activities that prevent harmful blood clots from forming in blood vessels. This is important because right now the drugs used to treat and prevent clot formation are difficult to use and can be downright dangerous if not monitored closely. This is one of the most studied areas for fucoidan with at least 50 studies on the subject as evidenced by a National Library of Medicine Pub Med search.
The use of fucoidan as a possible new cancer therapy is a key area of interest in the scientific and medical communities. There are more than 50 studies related to fucoidan and cancer. Glyconutrients are credited with combating breast, gastric and lung cancers, as well as leukemia. Most of the studies are still taking place in animal model, but the exploration is yielding some interesting and potentially therapeutic findings.
Fucoidan”s activity appears to be antiangiogenic. Antiangiogenesis is a hot topic in anti cancer therapy. To put it simply, fucoidan appears to stop the production of new blood vessels in cancerous tumors. We do not want cancerous tumor to make new blood vessels because that supplies them with the food to grow. With that in mind, consider what researchers at Fukuoka University in Japan found after they investigated whether fucoidan could counter cancerous tumors through antiangiogenesis. They found that both natural fucoidan and over-sulfated fucoidan both appear to block blood vessel formation?known as angiogenesis?which usually accompanies the growth of malignant tissue in cancerous tumors.
Cutting off a tumor”s blood supply is just one way of fighting cancer. Another way is to get the cancer cells to die through a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Apoptosis occurs naturally in the live cycle of a cell, when cancer begins taking over cells and making them grow wildly out of control, or proliferate, rather than dying at their prescribed time. Fucoidan has been found in several studies to promote apoptosis in cancer cells.
Inflammation plays a role in many diseases, including cardiovascular disease, Alzheimers”s disease, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and many others. Swedish scientists from Lund University in Malmo found that fucoidan inhibits the adhesion molecules known as P and E selectins, appeared to improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease in mice, and points to the crucial role that this type of selectin-inhibition, may play in the treatment of the disease in humans.
Fucoidan & H1N1 – Swine Flu
The results are in and the prognosis is good.
We at Health Products Guru.com try our best to stay on top of the current health issues of the day and offer high quality natural solutions for those issues that really work. We have, from the very beginning, been on top of the H1N1 – Swine Flu “pandemic” and we are very happy to report that we were right at every turn.
Over the past few months new reports have been pouring in confirming our theory about the potential effectiveness of Fucoidan in the fight against the H1N1 – Swine Flu virus. In fact the reports on clinical studies being done on Fucoidan and it’s therapeutic effects is more than anyone could have dreamed of.
The evidence of Fucoidan’s therapeutic effect on suppressed immune system function is truly amazing. It has been our contention for years that our immune systems have been compromised due to malnutrition.
These studies are showing that Fucoidan:
- supports the normal disposal of non-native cells,
- helps stimulate immune response when the body is attacked,
- helps modulate the immune system,
- supports normal cellular health,
- supports blood circulation to native body cells,
- helps regenerate healthy skin tissue,
- supports healthy joint mobility at all ages
and much more!
It is really a very exciting thing to see. The best that science & nature has to offer working in tandem to produce a health product that not only really works but is destined to become the nutritional equivalent to the discovery of fire. Now I know that this might sound extreme. I know that there are hundreds of products out there that make the same claim every day. What separates this product from all of the rest is results. There is more legitimate science behind Fucoidan than in any other natural product that I have ever seen. This stuff really works! If this were not true the FDA would be screaming to have the product taken off of the shelves.
