Fucoidan and the Japanese Diet

What is significantly different about the Japanese diet, compared to most other cultures?  The quantity of seaweed they consume.

Certified Organic

Seaweed has been a staple of the Japanese diet for centuries.  A constituent of seaweed is called fucoidan. Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide found mainly in various species of brown seaweed such as kombu, limu moui, bladderwrack, wakame, mozuku, and hijiki.

Japanese researchers have discovered the fucoidan polysaccharide, causes various forms of cancer cells to self-destruct. This process is called apoptosis. It is the natural process where living organisms eliminate harmful cells. Sulfated polysaccharides such as Fucoidan have been shown to help in inducing apoptosis.

Surely this can be one explanation for the people of Okinawa, Japan to have some of the longest life expectancies in Japan. They happen to have one of the highest per capita rates of consumption of Kombu – one gram per person per day.  Also, Japan has the lowest cancer death rate.

Since 1970, Fucoidan has been cited in over 800 independent, unsolicited third party scientific studies. Please have a look at pubmed.gov – the US National Library of Medicine website.

Fucoidan is a wonderful immune booster with no harmful side effects with wonderful health benefits.

Some conditions that can be positively impacted by a consistent consumption of Fucoidan are:

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Gastrointestinal function
  • And more.

Cordyceps – A Natural Immune Booster

What is Cordyceps Sinensis?

If you are looking for a supplement that can give you a surge in energy, strengthen vital body functions and help promote longevity, then the new and improved Oriyen Cordyceps Sinensis may be the one for you.


History and Background

Cordyceps sinensis, also known as Dong Chong Xiao Cao or “winter worm, summer plant”, has been used for over a thousand years as a superior tonic for numerous health complaints. It has even received international acclamation after a group of Chinese runners broke NINE world records in the 1993 Germany World Outdoor Track and Field Championships, an achievement the coach attributed to the runners’ regular consumption of Cordyceps.

cordycepsThe benefits of Cordyceps were first discovered 1,500 years ago when cowherds up in the Tibetan mountains observed their cattle becoming more energetic and friskier after eating this tiny mushroom. Since then, this magical healing “mushroom” has been used as one of the most effective tonics for many health problems. It helps to strengthen the body, improve organ functions, boost body resistance and promote longevity.

Strengthens Lungs & Soothes Respiratory Problems
According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Cordyceps invigorates the ‘lung meridian’, hence, it is commonly prescribed for asthma, coughs, weak lungs, wheezing, and shortness of breath and to reduce phlegm. It also helps to strengthen the respiratory tract which offers a significant endurance-boosting benefit to those who perform strenuous, physical work (e.g. hard labour, sports or high-intensity exercise).

Fights Fatigue & Alleviates Stress
Cordyceps greatly improves energy and endurance, helps fight fatigue or extreme tiredness, and alleviates the negative effects of stress. It is a great tonic for anyone who leads a very busy or stressful lifestyle and needs extra energy as it also improves sleep patterns, aids proper transportation of nutrients in the body, and boosts cellular oxygenation.

Boosts Sex Life
Considered one of the best natural aphrodisiacs available, Cordyceps has a more profound effect in strengthening the sexual function than other popular sexual tonics. Traditionally, Cordyceps is used as a remedy for sexual dysfunction in males, especially for erectile dysfunction, impotence and infertility. It fortifies the kidney channel and effectively improves libido, sexual desire and performance, physical endurance and energy. In fact, studies performed at Beijing Medical University reported a 64% success rate among men suffering from impotence.

Promotes Longevity & Prevents Premature Ageing
Cordyceps is a popular traditional anti-ageing tonic for body rejuvenation and to promote longevity. It restores strength after physical or mental exertion. Studies confirmed that Cordyceps increases the activities of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), a powerful antioxidant in the body, to quench free radicals that cause premature ageing and other common degenerative diseases.

Prevents Cardiovascular Problems
Cordyceps has been shown to lower LDL (“bad” cholesterol) while increasing HDL (“good” cholesterol) levels. It also helps to prevent the oxidation of LDL and “thins” the blood to prevent plaque or clot formation that may block the blood vessels.

Strengthens The Immune System
Traditionally, Cordyceps has been used to strengthen the body’s defences against infections, and recent clinical studies confirmed that it is a potent immune booster. It stimulates the production of immune cells such as the macrophages, lymphocytes, T helper cells and interleukin in the body. Cordyceps is also an exceptional immune-regulator, as it increases the activity of “underactive” immune cells while suppressing the “overactive” ones.
