HIGH PURITY FUCOIDAN EXTRACT
Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract is a highly characterised, certified organic fucoidan ingredient sourced from wild Undaria pinnatifida seaweed. This seaweed (commonly known as wakame or mekabu) grows in the pristine ocean waters of Patagonia and Tasmania, where it is hand-harvested on an environmentally sustainable basis.
Fucoidans are a class of compounds that vary in structure and bioactivity. This unique fucoidan is highly sulfated and acetylated, with a backbone containing both fucose and galactose. A small ‘branch’ of the molecule is pictured on the left or above.
