"Of course, I was once a devout follower of western medicine myself. I studied surgery at the University of Fukuoka, Japan, and afterwards got involved in research on cancer and chemotherapy. But as I met more and more patients whose medical histories defied everything I had learned, I began to think there must be something else. Pursuing my doubts, I found fucoidan."

"The seaweed we choose as raw materials of Fucoidan are Mozuku, Mekabu, and Kjellmaniella crassifolia. Mozuku obtains an efficient amount of fucoidan. Meanwhile, Mekabu and Kjellmaniella crassifolia contains sulfate groups that relate to a wider range of physiological activities. Each type of seaweed has it's own biological structure, thus would show better efficacy to combine different types of fucoidan together."
