Internal Health with DMK’S EFA Ultra

The fucoidan difference in EFA Ultra

DMK EFA Ultra utilises a very specialised Wakame Seaweed (Undaria pinnatifida) with a 50% concentration of fucoidans.

The name fucoidan refers to a group of highly bioactive compounds found in brown seaweeds. This magical ingredient has age defying properties, inhibiting age related enzymes collagenase and elastase, whilst increasing skin thickness and elasticity. Recent studies have revealed that it activates a key enzyme that influences lifespan called sirtuin 6. Sirtuin 6 is one of seven sirtuin enzymes that impact a range of cellular processes in humans, such as ageing, telomere function and stress resistance.

Research has also demonstrated that fucoidan may promote vascular health, stimulate immune responses, and protect brain cells. The studies show fucoidan:

  • brightens skin pigmentation through the inhibition of the enzyme tyrosinase. Extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) pathways are activated by fucoidan, which leads to the inhibition of melanogenesis.
  • increased dermal (skin) fibroblast numbers.
  • had enzyme-inhibitory activity at very low concentrations, particularly in combating glycation, which is the process of elastin and collagen degradation commonly associated with a loss of skin elasticity and the physical signs of aeging.

Fucoidan assists with weight loss and metabolic syndrome

  • Recent studies have been undertaken that illustrate the potential of fucoidan to assist with weight loss. Fucoidan has been shown to help break down fat cells, promote better digestion, boost the immunity, and increase anti-diabetic activity such as lowering high blood sugars and helping the body use insulin correctly.
  • It has been shown to boost the immune system. The powerful ability of fucoidan to bring the immune system back into balance is an extremely useful fucoidan health benefit and enables the immune system to function correctly. Immune modulating substances can boost or ‘turn on’ the immune system when it is depressed (such as with chronic fatigue or a cold) and can also suppress the immune system when it is over-stimulated (such as with autoimmune diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis).
  • Fucoidan is shown to have natural antiviral therapies inhibit the development of viruses in the body. Published research has indicated that fucoidan possesses a remarkable capacity to inhibit a broad spectrum of viruses including influenza, hepatitis B and herpes simplex. Evidence shows that fucoidan can halt the progression of infections through the body by preventing viruses from entering host cells, and by blocking attachment of viruses to host cell surfaces.
  • It can inhibit inflammation. Fucoidan has shown tremendous therapeutic anti-inflammatory potential in addressing conditions caused by chronic inflammation, such as arthritis-related joint inflammation, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease. There is growing evidence that shows fucoidan can interfere with the migration of leukocytes to the sites of inflammation, thereby stopping the body producing pro-inflammatory cytokines.
  • Fucoidan is a complex carbohydrate and can improve digestive processes by absorbing water and pushing food along the digestive tract. Fucoidan is also known to have a unique ability to address both inflammation and infection, which are two known causes of stomach irritation and pain.
  • Research has also shown that fucoidan is effective in healing gastric ulcers, restraining influenza, inhibiting bacterial infections (such as E. coli and Heliobacter pylori), and reducing gut inflammation and colitis.
