We are talking about phlorotannins, which are natural antioxidants that can replace similar synthetic components in food, medical and cosmetic products.
– According to many researchers, phlorotannins may become the basis for a number of drugs against diabetes, cancer and HIV. I am not saying this yet, because I do not like to talk about what I have not personally verified. But the potential of phlorotannins is certainly significant, the expert added.
In addition, the fucus from the Barents Sea is the leader in fucoidan and polyphenol content among other types of brown algae, as well as representatives of the same species from other seas. This is demonstrated by the data obtained by the MMBI research group in 2014-2022. A comparative study of Fucus vesiculosus, when samples of algae were collected almost simultaneously in different places in the World Ocean in the Arctic zone, was carried out by Russian scientists for the first time in the world.
Fucoidan polysaccharide is a substance that has antitumor, immunomodulatory, and anticoagulant effects. Along with phlorotannins, polyphenols are also powerful antioxidants that can positively affect all systems in the body.
