Fucoxanthin

Fucoxanthin
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Obesity

Animal studies suggest that fucoxanthin, an antioxidant found naturally in some types of seaweed, might prevent the growth of fat tissue and reduce abdominal fat. (more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions Fucoxanthin is a member of the carotenoid family, and is found naturally in some types of seaweed, such as wakame. Animal studies by one group of researchers suggest that fucoxanthin might prevent the growth of fat tissue and reduce abdominal fat.1, 2, 3 However, no studies have been done to see if this effect is achievable in humans, and one study found that fucoxanthin present in seaweed was absorbed quite poorly from the human digestive tract.4 Human research is needed to understand the value, if any, of fucoxanthin for helping with weight loss.

Fucoxanthin is a member of the carotenoid family, and is found naturally in some types of seaweed, such as wakame. Like most carotenoids, fucoxanthin is an antioxidant.1, 2 Animal studies by one group of researchers suggest that fucoxanthin might prevent the growth of fat tissue and reduce abdominal fat.3, 4, 5 However, no studies have been done to see if this effect is achievable in humans. Anti-cancer properties of fucoxanthin have also been identified in test tube studies,6, 7, 8 and anti-inflammatory effects have been shown in test tube and animal research.9 Whether any of these potential health effects could help humans is uncertain, because fucoxanthin present in seaweed was shown to be absorbed quite poorly from the human digestive tract in one study.10More research is needed to understand the value, if any, of fucoxanthin as a food nutrient or a dietary supplement.
