Fucoxanthin is processed from sea weed and is high in Carotenoids
that increase health and reduce mortality.
findings obtained indicate that fucoxanthin may act as
a chemopreventive and/or chemotherapeutic carotenoid in
bladder cancer cells by modulating cell viability."
restrains oxidative stress induced by retinol (kidneys)
deficiency through modulation of Na+Ka +-ATPase and antioxidant
enzyme activities in rats." (2) This
study shows fucoxanthin reduces kidney problems and increases
is known to have antitumorigenic activity" (3) (impedes
the growth of tumors)
multi-functionalities of fucoxanthin indicate that it
is an important bioactive (having
a capacity to interact with a living tissue or system)
(increases health and reduces mortality) that
is beneficial for the prevention of the metabolicsyndrome."
