Well, the lottery for a free bottle of Limu is over!   I am disappointed to say that I did not get close to the 25 entries required for the lottery to take effect.  I was hoping there would be more interest, but that is just how it goes I suppose.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank the handful of you that took the time to post an entry.  I really enjoyed reading your comments.

Until my next post.  Have a nice Ash Wednesday!

Building A Strong Immune System to Prevent Heart Disease

heart.jpgStudy of fucoidan’s anti-viral and anti-bacterial activity could also mean it has therapeutic value for preventing heart disease by bolstering immunity.  If, as some research suggests, C-reactive protein (CRP) is elevated from viral or bacterial activity, prevention of such an invasion could enhance our ability to lower our cardiovascular disease risk. 

Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham are assessing whether there is a possible connection between Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria known to cause stomach ulcers.  The bacterial infection is thought to be a precursor to gastric cancer and heart disease.  The study, which will look at H. pylori and the incidence of heart disease in African-Americans, should have implications for the population at large.

Scientists have found that fucoidan inhibits the adhesion of H. pylori in the gut, again, giving it a potential role in cardiovascular-disease prevention.  In studies, fucoidan’s anti-viral activity was shown to be effective against herpes simplex and HIV.

Limu – Pollution Antidote

Filed under: Blogging, Cancer, Fucoidan, Health, health drinks, Limu, Original Limu — Original Limu @ 11:11 am

moreinfo4.jpgHello everyone!  I am sorry that I have not posted in a couple of weeks.  I have been away on business and am just getting to where I can spend some time doing some limu-related research.  Below is a little information on controlling pollution in the body…

One of the most intriguing characteristics of limu is its ability to bind heavy metal and radioactive pollutants.  Alginate, another limu component, naturally absorbs radioactive elements, heavy metals and free radicals.  It has the unique ability to bind hevy metals and radioactive elements to its own molecules.  Because the alginate cannot be broken down by bile or saliva and cannot be absorbed by the body, it is secreted from the body with the heavy metals and radioative substances.

Researchers at the Gastrointestinal Research Lab at McGill University in Montreal demonstrated that limu has chelating abilities, meaning it can inhibit the absorption of lead, cadmium and radioactive strontium, one of the most hazardous pollutants.

Researchers say 80 to 90 percent of strontium 90’s radioisotopes could be removed from the intestinal tract in the presence of seaweed.  So much strontium 90 has been released by nuclear explosions, power plants and nuclear weapons facilities that it is believed that every person has detectable levels in their bone tissue, and many cancers are attributed to this contamination.

Limu Information

Filed under: AIDS, Allergies, Blogging, Cancer, Fucoidan, Health, health drinks, Limu, Original Limu — Original Limu @ 7:42 pm

moreinfo4.jpgHere is a tidbit of information I found…enjoy… 

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?

Trying to Find A Direction

Filed under: Blogging, Cancer, Fucoidan, Health, health drinks, Limu, Original Limu — Original Limu @ 5:00 pm

Although this is my blog and I can write about whatever I want, I would like to try to gather your thoughts on which direction to take this blog. After all, my goal is to try to create a community of people that are interested in learning about Original Limu.

What would you like to discuss or learn more about…arthristis, cancer, blood pressure, ordering, distributing? I will admit that I have some topics that I know I want to discuss, but I am more than willing to go in any direction. The main ingredient of a good community is input from its members.

If you have any thoughts feel free to post a comment. Rememeber, all thoughts, big and small, count. I would like to see how large of a list we can compile.

Fucoidan – New Cancer Therapy

Filed under: Blogging, Cancer, Fucoidan, Health, health drinks, Limu, Original Limu — Original Limu @ 8:54 am

moreinfo2.jpgThe use of fucoidan as a possible new cancer therapy is eliciting interest from the scientific and medical communities. More than 50 studies show the glyconutrient is showing activity in breast, gastric and lung cancers, as well as leukemia. Most of the studies are still taking place in animals, but the exploration is yielding some interesting and potentially therapeutic findings.

Fucoidan’s anti-tumor activity appears to be anti-angiogenic. Anti-angiogenesis is the creation of new blood vessels and is a hot topic in anti-cancer therapy. Anti-angiogenesis is the method to cut off a tumor’s blood lifeline through drugs or other substances, and according to the American Cancer Society, without blood, tumors cannot grow much larger than the eye of a needle.

Consider what researchers at Fukuoka University in Japan found after they investigated whether fucoidan could counter cancerous tumors through anti-angiogenesis. They found that both natural fucoidan and over-sulfated fucoidan appear to block blood vessel formation, which usually accompanies the growth of malignant tissue – known as angiogenesis – in cancerous tumors. “These results indicate that the anti-tumor action of fucoidan is due, at least in part, to its anti-angiogenic potency and that increasing the number of sulfate groups in the fucoidan molecule contributes to the effectiveness of its anti-angiogenic and anti-tumor activities,” the Fukuoka University researchers conclude.

Cutting off a tumor’s blood supply is one way of fighting cancer. Another way is to get cancer cells to die through a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Apoptosis occurs naturally in the life cycle of a cell. When cancer begins taking over cells it makes them grow out of control, rather than dying at their proscribed time. Fucoidan has been found in several studies to promote apoptosis in cancer cells.

This is only the third post in my informational series, but it seems to me that the applications for Original Limu are endless.
