Seaweed Supplements Help With Weight Loss

Seaweed Supplements

People are on a constant quest to find ways to lose weight or maintain it a healthy weight. So when a product or supplement pops up into market view it receives spotlight attention. And if this supplement is all natural and organic the light shines even brighter.

The best seaweed pill is from fucoidan extract. This top fucoidan ingredient comes from wild wakame seaweed. A seaweed pill harvested in the remote areas are best such as the pristine waters of Patagonia, Argentina.

"After years of being a marine based supplement expert and researcher, I am always delighted to hear of new studies on seaweeds pointing towards its health benefits such as weight loss," said Thierry Lerond. "The ocean is brimful of medicinal properties - as I often say in during my global speaking engagements, it's the way nature intended."

Fucoidan has undergone intense research for roughly a decade. Including a link to weight loss, this brown seaweed also helped with the following:


 Bone and joint health

 Digestive health

 Adjunct treatment to viruses and bacteria

 Heart health

A regarded nutritionist, Alison Birks, wrote a great article entitled, "Dr. Oz Touts Brown Seaweed Extract for Weight Loss: Hype or Hope?"

A snippet of her article reads, "If you are like millions of other Dr. Oz fans, you take his helpful advice and you buy a bottle of the brown seaweed extract that was recently featured on the Dr. Oz Show as the latest 'gotta-have-it' weight loss aid."

Of course, even with a great supplement, a successful weight loss regimen includes eating a healthy diet, decreasing calorie intake, and increasing exercise.

Dr. Oz shared with his viewers that fucoxathanin, a brown seaweed extract, has shown to decrease abdominal fat otherwise known as visceral fat.

The reason behind it may lie within an increase of thermogenesis, a heat production, in white fat cells. This internal heat system increases the metabolic rate.

Dr. Oz highlighted a few brown seaweeds in his show, including wakame.

Birks did a great deal of homework while admitting how she does not lean towards media personalities and product hype.
Like other researchers, Birks discovered the same brown seaweed benefits, such as:

 Soluble fiber

 Immune-enhancing fucoidan

 Detoxifying alginate



 Antioxidant carotenoids

At the end of her article, she was very candid with her conclusion.
"After researching fucoxanthin and brown seaweed, I can say with conviction that eating brown seaweed as part of your daily diet is a healthful practice, one which I myself try to incorporate into my own life and I teach others to do the same," she wrote. 

Birks continued, "I'm very hopeful about fucoxanthin and the other components of brown seaweed, such as alginates and fucoidan. I'm looking forward to future research on this amazing group of marine plant compounds, in hopes of the more substantial clinical evidence to come."

Like Birks, Lerond too is anxious to learn the latest reports on seaweed research. The oceans have wonderful properties to support and boost wellness at every level, including weight loss.
