Limu Original contains fucoidan, which is a sulfated polysaccharide with antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, according to the LIMU Company. LIMU harvests this supernutrient from brown seaweed. LIMU claims that regular intake of fucoidan can lead to healthy blood cholesterol, allergy relief, immune system support, improved joint mobility and increased energy. Reviewers on Amazon.com corroborate these claims, and many say that Limu Original is worth the high cost.
Scientific studies somewhat corroborate LIMU's claims, according to Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Fucoidan may help fight cancer, but research in this realm is still early. Research on fucoidan is still pre-clinical, which means that there is not yet enough information from scientific studies to recommend use of fucoidan on a clinical basis. Harmful side effects may include an increase in bleeding for those on blood-thinning medications. Consuming large amounts of seaweed may be harmful to the thyroid due to the large amounts of iodine found in seaweed.Learn more about Medications & Vitamins
