How to maximise the benefits of wakame, the seaweed!

Do you want to have shiny silky hair and healthy skin? boost your immune system? Having wakame might help you achieve that.  Wakame is one of the brown seaweeds that we eat a lot in Japan and contains fabulous nutrients such as fucoidan.

This fucoidan is the key to maximise the health benefits of wakame.

Fucoidan is a gel like substance only found in brown seaweeds. Fucoidan has taken the world by storm because of a recent discovery of its anti-tumor, anti-allergic, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory effects. Fucoidan is poised to become the new standard in cancer treatment as a natural, side effect-free remedy. There are even more health benefits of fucoidan.

Fucoidan’s health benefits:

  • Helps protect against cancer and tumour growth
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Immune boosting
  • Anti-allergenic
  • Helps lower high cholesterol levels
  • Helps lower high blood pressure
  • Stabilizes blood sugar levels
  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-ulcer
  • Antioxidant
  • Promotion of hair growth
  • Skin moisturizing
  • Anti-pylori* bacterial (in stomach) action
