How seaweed pills may help diabetics

January 29, 2014

Those who are conscious about their wellness because of diabetes are reaching for seaweed pills to help support their metabolic system.

And not just any seaweed supplement, either

The best type of seaweed harvested must have fucoidans. This special ingredient extract is found in brown seaweed, such as wakame.

Those who live in certain parts of Japan, like Okinawa, are seeing the tremendous anti-aging and longevity factors from their seaweed consumption

As seaweed pills grow in popularity, it’s more important than ever to seek quality in these supplements. Not all marine supplements are the same. And by all means, avoid cheap imitations especially when it comes to your health

In San Diego, Nutrilys Del Mar, a marine based supplement company, offers a top shelf seaweed supplement called Fucorich® which has fucoidans. Its wakame seaweed is harvested in the pristine waters of Patagonia to ensure quality.

“Fucoidans also have what’s called undaria extract,” said a Nutrilys Del Mar’s spokesperson. “This is an important ingredient that boosts a person’s immunity while lessening any negative effects such as tissue damage.”

The spokesperson went on to say that brown seaweed is a perfect adjunct therapy to any current diabetic treatments. And of course, before adding a new supplement to a diet, always seek the advice of a healthcare professional.

While diabetes is on the rise in the western culture, particular areas in Asia where brown seaweed is consumed, it remains a scarce illness

In The Little Known Longevity Factor written by, Tiesha Johnson, she highlights the benefits of fucoidans.

“Fucoidans hold tremendous promise in disrupting the process that lead to metabolic syndrome and its cardiovascular consequences,” she wrote in Life Extension Magazine. She continued, “Undaria exerts anti- diabetic effects by stabilizing and slowing the digestion of starch from processed carbohydrates, which may reduce the likelihood of dangerous postprandial glucose and insulin spikes.”

Unfortunately, diabetics also deal with compromised wound healing and skin ulcerations.

Johnson shared with her readers, “In one compelling study, researchers discovered that fucoidan supplementations could restore normal control of capillary blood flow on diabetic animals,” she wrote

This study shows merit for diabetics since many also have trouble with skin healing to feet and ankles following cuts or abrasions. Since this type of skin trauma has the potential to lead to infection, the study reports offer great news

The benefits of fucoidan are immense. This natural food supplement offers much hope in helping diabetic patients in a variety of impressive ways.
