I have decided to extend the lottery by two weeks (ending 02/16/2007), and reduce the number of required entries to 25.  Hopefully we will get there.  Good luck!!

Lottery for a Free Bottle of Original Limu

Since we are in the beginning of a brand new year, I think it will be fun to start the year off with an Original Limu contest…or should I say lottery.  The prize will be one unopened bottle of Original Limu delivered to your doorstep absolutley free.  So, if you have always wanted to try the product but have been a little skepticle, here is your chance.

To enter this lottery you do not have to buy a ticket, all you have to do is submit a comment to this post explaining what you plan to do this year to live a more healthy life.  The lottery will run until Wednesday, January 31st at midnight, at which time I will select a winner at random from the submitted comments.  The winner will be announced on this blog, and also notified via email.  The only requirement that must be met in order for the lottery to take place is that I must receive 100 submissions before February 1st.

So what do you have to loose?  Take a few moments to share what you plan to do to become more healthy, and you will be entered for a chance to win.  Good Luck!!

Fucoidan’s Role in Fighting AIDS

moreinfo4.jpgOne of the most exciting areas in fucoidan research is a human clinical trial slated to begin in December 2006 assessing a fucoidan-based product that will be used as an anti-HIV microbicide.  A news release on the trial states, “This product will be designed to augment existing treatments, and provide a nontoxic, controlled method of reducing HIV levels in the gut and serum.”

The treatment will be designed for adjunctive use with existing HIV therapy.  University of South Carolina researchers will undertake the trial with the results expected in November 2007.  “USC’s initial studies, utilizing whole Undaria pinnatfida [a native Japanese kelp cultivated for human consumption] demonstrated significant efficacy in reducing serum HIV levels and boosting the CD4 count in human treatment-naive HIV patients.  The new study will aim to capitalize on these initial positive findings and provide data to support the progression of a formulated fucoidan microbicide into clinical studies.”
