@sylviapat, fucoidan is a natural derived compound found in different species of brown algae and in some animals, that has gained attention for its anticancer properties. However, the exact mechanism of action is currently unknown. It is being researched for its ability as an:
Anti-coagulant (prevents blood clotting)
Anti-thrombotic (reduces the formation of clots)
Anti-angiogenic (reduces the growth of new blood vessels)

Its possible role in gut health has so far only been tested on rats and not yet humans as far as I could find. See this research:

Has your doctor suggested fucoidan for you?


My doctor suggest a pharmacy fucoi syrup, which is more a synthetic formula . Not a pure extract.


@colleenyoung . There is this herbal capsule, called mozuku, (overseas product) that claim it helps heal ulcer, maintain wellbeing, gastric.
So it's kind of over claim right? .
