What Exactly is Fucoxanthin?
by Jon Alkire
has started appearing in the inventories of companies that provide quality
supplements and nutraceuticals to the public.

As for what it is there is a pigment within brown algae. This pigment is a compound
responsible for the absorption of blue-green light. The compound's name is
fucoxanthin.

If you've ever had seaweed, you might have already had fucoxanthin. Wakame,
which is consumed in Japan in salads and in miso soup, is one of the naturally
occurring sources of this pigment. Other edible brown seaweeds also contain it.

The supplement form of fucoxanthin can be simply the seaweed ground and put into
capsules or it can be an extract. Fucoxanthin supplements may be mixed with other
nutrients to enhance the effectiveness or the supplement may contain fucoxanthin
alone. If you are considering trying fucoxanthin the same is true as with any dietary
supplement: know what's in it and make sure that it is the right supplement for you
from a supplier you can trust.

You may never have heard of the compound fucoxanthin before reading these
words, but as more research, studies and interest are focused on it, fucoxanthin
could very well become common amongst those trying to live a healthier life and
unlock the potential of this interesting substance that starts from a very humble and
abundant beginning.
