History of Fucopure®
Fucoxanthin Extract (U.S. Patent)
We begin with Wakame because it not only has the highest concentrations of naturally occurring Fucoxanthin, but also contains the broadest range of minerals of any food -- the same minerals found in the ocean and in human blood such as Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, and Iodine. Wakame Seaweed also contains Vitamin C, Fiber, Beta-Carotene, Panththenic Acid and Riboflavin--two B-Vitamins needed for your body to produce energy.
Wakame is one of the oldest forms of marine vegetation on the planet. It is a globally recognized food source, long known to the Japanese for its beneficial health properties. It is a sea vegetable, or edible seaweed that has become popular for its fucoxanthin.
Fucoxanthin is a brownish pigment that gives Wakame its characteristic color and also conducts photosynthesis (the conversion of light to energy). It is found at high levels in several different types of brown seaweed. Fucoxanthin has been said to release the stored coupled-proteins within in the White Adipose Tissue (fat cells)to be absorbed by the body and used as energy.
