- Contains two types of Fucoidan: Mozuku and Mekabu
Fucoidan is a complex molecule with many health benefits. The difference between fucoidan and other ingredients capable of enhancing the immune system is that the effectiveness of fucoidan varies depending on the species it is extracted from. The best fucoidan comes from the brown algae mozuku (Cladosiphon okamuranus) and wakame-Mekabu (Undaria pinnatifida).
NatureMedic® fucoidan contains fucoidan from Mozuku and Wakame (Mekabu spores) with a concentration higher than 85%.
- Quality: Select Uncontaminated, Radiation & Heavy Metals Free Fucoidan brands.
Research has shown that Mozuku is the species that produces the highest amount of Fucoidan and it is mainly cultivated in Okinawa, Japan. On the contrary, fucoidan from Wakame is more commonly found in areas like Australia, Argentina, Japan, Korea and China, etc.
Recently, there is great customer awareness about possible contamination of the wakame species that grows in Japan. The Iwate Prefecture produces the most wakame in Japan. However, after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the Iwate prefecture, was damaged severely particularly for the "wakame" (brown seaweed) farming. Therefore, this increasing radiation is not just grim news for people who consume seaweed by itself or as the most common edible wrapping for sushi; it also impacts the fucoidan dietary supplements.
For this reason, it is recommended to select organic or 100% natural sources to avoid any health concerns regarding its quality, radiation or heavy metal contamination.
NatureMedic® Fucoidan’s uniqueness is that it contains uncontaminated Certified Organic Mekabu fucoidan from Australia. The product is tested prior to distribution (before entering the United States) and after it arrives to the facility. The results of the analysis can be found on the company’s website or it can be e-mailed upon request.
- Quantity: Get enough Fucoidan per bottle
Fucoidan at a high concentration ranging from 85% up to 90% is difficult to obtain. This means that the raw material might be expensive to buy. Make sure to buy ‘GOOD QUALITY’ brands that will give you enough amount of fucoidan per bottle.
In the market 40%-70% standardized fucoidan products prevail. This does not mean that the more of the 40% fucoidan you consume, the highest the effectiveness that you will notice. Because science is a long way from identifying exactly which constituents or interactions between constituents are responsible for most of the effects observed with the use of Fucoidan, it is best to select high concentrations as much as possible.
NatureMedic® fucoidan contains 26 grams of fucoidan extracted from the Mekabu spores and Mozuku, both higher than and/or equal to 85% in concentration. Each bottle contains 160 vegetable capsules.
- High Quality Standards – Comply with cGMPs
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) law requires that dietary supplement companies prepare their products according to Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) as described in 21 CFR 111. These requirements help ensure that dietary supplement products are manufactured, prepared, and stored properly and meet certain quality standards. Manufacturers, distributors, and importers of dietary supplements are responsible for complying with CGMPs, which include instructions for manufacturers to keep extensive records and to test ingredients (prior to manufacturing) and products (prior to distributing).
NatureMedic® fucoidan has been manufactured in a pharmaceutical facility in Japan that follows strict quality control and complies with the cGMPs.

Dr. Susana Trujillo came to the U.S. when she was just 15 years old. Adapting to a new culture and language, she pursued her education while working multiple jobs in order to pay tuition. She managed to obtain three “AA” degrees from Cerritos College in Biology and Natural Sciences before transferring to California State University Long Beach to achieve a double major in Biochemistry (BS) and Chemistry (BA). The Director of the Chemical Engineering Department invited her to join their Masters Program and eventually was hired by a company that made Fucoidan-based products while she received a Masters of Science in Chemical Engineering (M.Sc.).
Fascinated by the health benefits of Fucoidan, Susana continued to research and study the amazing substance and decided to go back to school to pursue an ND (Naturopathic Doctor) so she could help cancer patients who were interested in taking Fucoidan. She studied cancer extensively, learning how it affects people physiologically, mentally and spiritually. Her first priority is to help people dealing with cancer so she pursued more education in herbalism (M.H.), nutrition (C.N.C.) and counseling (C.H.S).
After five years with the company, Dr. Susana Trujillo began developing new products that she thought would help more cancer patients; however the company embraced none of her ideas. The Vice-President of the company left and opened his own business and she followed to pursue their goals of helping people dealing with cancer and other chronic conditions. They developed a formula that is enhanced with AHCC. This formulation is backed up with solid scientific studies.
An exclusive formulation of Fucoidan powered with AHCC is now a reality that helps people regain their health and Quality of Life. Dr. Susana Trujillo main focus is on the development of products that help people achieve optimum health and vitality.
