Limu contains no less than 77 elements, including vitamins C and E and several B vitamins, selenium, beta-carotene, protein, iodine, calcium, and iron.  But the key nutrient of limu attracting the most attention is the glyconutrient fucoidan, which, according to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, consists of these elements – alpha (1,2) or alpha (1,3) 4-0 sulfated-L-fuctose, galactose, xylose and glucoronic acid.  Other names often used synonymously with fucoidan are fucans and fucoidans.

Fucoidan, which was first isolated from brown algae in 1913, is the subject of more that 650 scientific investigations.  Scientists are looking at its potential use in a number of treatment areas, including those for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, virology, immunology, inflammation and arthritis, bacterial and fungal infections, ulcers, burns and wounds, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol and others.

How Much Limu Do You Drink?

Filed under: Allergies, Blogging, Cancer, Fucoidan, Health, health drinks, Limu, Original Limu — Original Limu @ 8:32 am

I received an email a few minutes ago in which I was asked, “how much limu should I drink for cancer?” It is a good question, just like all the questions I get, but one that I honestly do not know the answer to. I tend to think that the same amount should be taken no matter what the ailment. I personally drink 4 ounces a day, 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. I know people who drink more and others who drink less. I suppose it all depends on personal preference.

How much Limu do you drink each day?

Fucoidan as an Allergy Treatment

Filed under: Allergies, Blogging, Fucoidan, Health, health drinks, Limu, Original Limu — Original Limu @ 8:32 am

moreinfo4.jpgHere is some information that I found regarding Limu and allergies…

A study from Japan found that mice given fucoidan got relief from pulmonary inflammation, suggesting the protein’s use for treating allergies. Another study, conducted by the biomedical group Takara Shuzo Co., also in Japan, which has been conducting a number of fucoidan studies, found there was suppression of the production of Immunoglobulin (lgE), which is known to cause allergies such as hay fever and allergic rhinitis, in mice that orally ingested fucoidan.

Another Japanese study from the School of Allied Health Sciences, found that fucoidan augments type 1 T helper cell response in mice, a finding that may mean it could be useful as a treatment for allergic inflammation.
