Fucoidan is a complex polysaccharide made up of fucose and other important elements that has the potential to promote immune health as well as improve your body’s overall health and well-being. It exists in different types of sea vegetations from which it can be extracted to produce a powder, pill, or liquid extract.
The extraction process is how the seaweed is standardized. The extraction process varies from producer to producer, but Fucoidan Force™’ uses a gentle and proprietary cold-water extraction process that protects the fucoidan molecule to deliver maximum nutritional benefit while eliminating impurities, fibers, and particles.
If you don’t see the word “standardized” on the Supplement Facts label, then you won’t know how much actual fucoidan you are getting. Standardization is the process of determining the exact concentration of a substance in a crude material. For example, 400 mg of crude seaweed such as Undaria pinnatifida, standardized to 45% fucoidan, means you get 180 mg of guaranteed fucoidan. During our standardization process, fillers, salts, impurities, and other matter is gently removed from the seaweed through a patented cold water extraction process, leaving the delicate fucoidan molecules in tact to do their incredible work in the body. In this same example, if 400 mg of seaweed was not standardized, all you would know is that you are getting 400 mg of seaweed, and nothing of the actual fucoidan content.
Fucoidan promotes healthy immune function, cell-to-cell communication, and tissue maintenance. Additionally, there are over 1400 scientific articles and publications on the benefits of Fucoidan listed in the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed.
Suggested use varies depending on your reason for taking a Fucoidan supplement.
|1 to 2 Pills Daily
||Most people require just one to two capsules daily.
|4 Pills Three Times a Day
||Individuals seeking to enhance the benefit may choose to take up to 4 pills 3 times daily
Fucoidan naturally occurs in many of the seafood eaten by millions of people of all ages in Japan, China, and Korea. It is used worldwide for fucoidan’s benefits. Please note, fucoidan comes from seaweed which has both iodine and sodium. People with sensitivities to either or who have a preexisting condition should consult a physician before starting any new medication or herbal supplement regimen.
Fucoidan Force is harvested from wakame seaweed that grows in the Atlantic Ocean. As one of the only manufacturers that only harvests Atlantic-grown seaweed, Fucoidan Force™ is one of the few fucoidan supplements that is 100% guaranteed free from the radiation caused by the Fukushima disaster in 2011.
Fucoidan Force™ is made in the USA in a cGMPs FDA approved facility. In August 2002, the FDA created a regulatory standard for ensuring pharmaceutical quality products for human consumption known as the Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMPs). The cGMP initiative ensures appropriate design, monitoring and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. These standards are set to make sure that all products made in the facility meet strict standards set by the new FDA guidelines.
Studies have shown that Fucoidan may have blood-thinning properties which could possibly keep your blood from clotting. Always consult a doctor before making changes to your diet, supplements, and medication. People who have allergic reactions to soy can have allergic reactions to Fucoidan.

Fucoidan Force™ contains 20mcg (micrograms) per gram of product. It uses fucoidan from the wakame seaweed (Undaria pinnatifida). There is 400mg of extract in one single capsule of Fucoidan Force™ which means each capsule contains 8 mcg of iodine, 5.3% of the recommended daily allowance.
The recommended daily value for iodine is 150 mcg, though the U.S. National Academy of Sciences lists the maximum tolerable level of iodine intake as 1.1 mg (1100 mcg) of iodine per day. To surpass this amount, you would have to take over 55 capsules of Fucoidan Force™ a day.
Iodine is necessary for the human body to function properly. Fucoidan Force™ provides a small dose of iodine on a daily basis. Always consult with your doctor before making changes to your diet, supplements, or medication.
The amount of sodium in the wakame seaweed (Undaria pinnatifida) extract used to make Fucoidan Force is approximately 3.5%. Each Fucoidan Force™ capsule contains 400mg of Undaria Pinnatifida extract. This means you get about 14 mg of sodium per capsule. Keeping in mind that the RDA (recommended daily allowance) of sodium is 2,400 mg, 14 mg is a mere drop in the bucket.
Fucoidan is 100% natural and does not contain harsh chemicals that can cause complications with other chemicals. Because of the blood-thinning properties of fucoidan, you should consult with a licensed physician is always recommended when adjusting medications or supplements
It takes about 1 kg of brown seaweed to obtain 1 gram of Fucoidan. Since the normal daily dosage of Fucoidan should be about 3 to 6 grams to maintain health and immunity, it would not be logical to eat in excess of 3kg of brown seaweed per day.
The best time to take Fucoidan Force is in the early morning, late morning, and late afternoon. It can be taken with or without food.
Please consult with a doctor before taking it in conjunction with other medications or with other supplements. With your doctors approval, Fucoidan Force™ may be taken indefinitely to help promote good health, cell-to-cell communication, and tissue maintenance, with no side effects.
Since its discovery in 1913, there have been thousands of studies worldwide on the amazing effects of Fucoidan. Some of these studies can be found in the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed database online.
