Is Fucoidan Something New?

Fucoidan (pronounced foo-coy-den) may not be something you have ever heard of, but it has been around since time began!

Ancient cultures (and many modern cultures) have a long history of consuming fucoidan-rich seaweeds.  In fact, many scientists believe that the lower rate of cancer in Asian populations compared to the west is due to their seaweed consumption (one of the main ingredients in miso soup is a seaweed rich in fucoidan).

In 1913 Professor Kylin from Sweden first discovered the fucoidan within seaweed.  In the 1970's serious research and studies began looking into the benefits of fucoidan. The first benefits discovered were that it is a potent anti-coagulant/blood thinner, comparable to prescription anti-coagulants.

As research continued into the 80's and 90's, anti-cancer and anti-virus properties were discovered, and in fact many people began taking fucoidan supplements, paying as much as $300 per bottle (which they still spend today on a particular brand from Japan, which is incredible considering Japan's oceans have been contaminated with nuclear radiation).

As we have moved into the 2000's, the research has increased substantially, with close to 1400 studies published on pubmed.com, and intense research is being done in Japan, where there is a Research Institute of Fucoidan showing the latest clinical reports that are demonstrating remarkable results on cancers treatments with fucoidan! There are similar studies with other species of brown seaweed with the same type of results. 
Many ailments we humans suffer from also affect our dogs and other pets, Fucopia is the fucoidan-rich pet supplement that can help your pet the way it helps humans!

What is Fucopia and how can it help my pet?

Fucopia is a pet supplement that is rich in natural organic fucoidan, sourced from USA North Atlantic waters free of contaminants and radiation.

Fucoidan is a component found in brown algae and seaweed.  It is a sulfated polysaccharide, which in clinical studies (over 1300 in the US National Institute of Medicine) has shown the following properties:
  • Enhances apoptosis, the breakdown of abnormal cells
  • Antioxidants and Free Radical Scavenging
  • Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Actvities (Arthritis relief)
  • Inhibition of Tumor Cell Growth (prevents new blood vessel growth)
  • Hypolipidaemic and Hypoglycaemic Properties
  • Anticoagulant and Antithrombotic Activity
  • Biolubricant Properties
  • Inhibits metastasis (spread of abnormal cells)

Research continues on fucoidans, and many humans are now taking fucoidan supplements to treat or prevent many conditions with success.

Not only does Fucopia provide a rich source of fucoidan for your pet, it also provides over 60 bioavailable minerals, vitamins, fiber and phytonutrients.  It is also a rich source of Omega-3's, which help with allergies, skin conditions, heart disease, lymphoma, arthritis and kidney function.

The makes of Fucopia felt that this substance should be available for pets, in a palatable easy to administer product that can give our pets the same benefits as humans.  Unlike "kelp" supplements for pets, which can be made from any species of seaweed, Fucopia only uses species of seaweed with safe levels of iodine and natural blood thinners. It also helps that most pets find Fucopia tasty, and enjoy the small amount needed mixed in with their daily wet food.  

Fucopia is made from 100% human food grade seaweed.  After all, our pets are family, aren't they?  We believe in giving them the same quality of ingredients we use ourselves!
