Umi No Minamoto - Ocean Essence Fucoidan (One Bottle)
Ocean Essence Fucoidan
Fucoidan is one of the slimy components forming the fronds of various marine algae including kombu and wakame seaweed. In recent years, the potency found in fucoidan has been elucidated and is attracting attention for its functionality in immunity-building supplements. Its raw material, Okinawan Mozuku, is a brown algae belonging to the order Chordariales, and is a specialty of the Ryukyu islands.
Okinawan Mozuku contains high levels of fucoidan compared to other seaweed, and is unsurpassed as a raw material from which highly pure fucoidan is extracted, due to its low levels of contaminants such as algic acid. Apart from mozuku fucoidan, our product also contains three different kinds of medical mushroom extracts. Agaricus, ganoderma lucidum and shiitake mushrooms contain in large amounts the components belonging to the same polysaccarides as fucoidan, beginning with beta-glucan. They provide a synergistic effect of enhancing immunity through various polysaccharides working in unison.
On top of 30440mg of 100% Okinawan mozuku extract (fucoidan), one bottle of this product contains 4320mg of agaricus mushroom extract powder (50% extract), 4320mg of lentinula hypha (shitake mycelia) powder (33% extract), and 4320mg of ganoderma lucidum mycelia powder (33% extract). It is 100% free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. This product contains 2 bottles of 360 capsules (180 capsules each).
In order to protect our product against imitation products, we have included two holographic images on the packaging. The first one is a 3D seal sticker displaying the character 源 (“essence”) in the center. The second one is a rainbow hologram of the name of our product, adding extra protection against imitation products.
Combining the three kinds of medical mushroom extract
- Mushrooms are made up of two parts: the fruitbody and the mycelium. The upper part of the mushroom consisting of an umbrella and a large pattern is the fruitbody. Mushrooms we are used to seeing and normally eat are in fact the fruitbody. In contrast, the root part of the mushroom is known as the mycelium, which resembles white thread fibers.
- There are components which are unique to the fruitbody but not the mycelium, and vice versa. Generally it is said that the mycelium has most of the valuable ingredients (polysaccharides). Combining three types of medical mushroom extracts (one from the fruitbody of agaricus, and the other two from the mycelia of shiitake and ganoderma lucidum), this product contains a variety of polysaccharides including β- (1-3) -D-glucan, β- (1-6) -D-glucan, xyloglucan, glucomannan protein polysaccharide (ATOM) and mannan protein complex (AB-FP).
- The culturing method of medical mushrooms is divided into two large groups: “liquid culturing” and “solid culture”. Most mushrooms are produced using the liquid culturing method due to its short cultivation period of just two to three weeks. However, Kanehide Bio have been using solid culturing, which takes three months followed by an extra month for maturation, in order to further increase the potency of the medical mushrooms. They carefully cultivate the mycelia via the solid culture method, using bagasse, a sugarcane pomace, as a culture medium. The mycelia grows while storing the various nutrients during this process.
Compared to the competition products, such as "Umi No Shizuku Fucoidan", "AHCC Fucoidan", "Takara Bio Fucoidan", this product contains a wider range of functional components (polysaccharides).
