Read about Fucoidan Stage IV Protocol for Cancer Treatment.
It is not surprising that many cancer patients now opt to complement conventional treatments with alternative therapies that may not only temper the adverse side effects of conventional cancer therapy, but also improve its effectiveness via independent anti-cancer effects. This is the reason why more and more people are turning to complementary and alternative therapies, like Fucoidan to augment their conventional cancer treatments.
What is Fucoidan?
Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide found in brown algae/seaweed; it has been shown to exhibit a number of biological effects, including anti-tumor effects. It was found in 1913 by Professor Johann Kylin in Sweden. It was not until 1996, that Fucoidan got to be well known after apoptosis impact on growth cells was presented at the 55th Japanese Cancer Association in 1996. From that point forward Fucoidan turned out to be extremely prevalent in a scope of therapeutic and nutritional applications.
The advantage of Fucoidan is that it can be a much more effective approach that could also support conventional treatments. Fucoidan has been well-recognized for having three main anti-cancer actions:
- Ability to induce Apoptosis
- Ability to suppress Angiogenesis
- Ability to enhance the immune system
Ability to Induce Apoptosis
One of the most important actions is Fucoidan’s ability to induce programmed-cell death known as Apoptosis, which limits tumor development. Fucoidan is well-known for its Apoptosis-inducing effect on cancer cells. The inhibition of apoptosis, a universal and efficient cellular suicide pathway, is known as one of the hallmark characteristics of cancer.
The inhibition of apoptosis in cancer contributes to tumor growth, promotes neoplastic progression, and confers resistance to toxic anticancer agents. Fucoidan, a natural ingredient, has the ability to induce apoptosis in cancer cells and it can be of great support to the conventional treatments, especially chemotherapy. A study indicated that Fucoidan induces apoptosis in HT-29 and HCT116 human colon cancer cells, and that this phenomenon is mediated via both the death receptor-mediated and mitochondria-mediated apoptotic pathways.
Cancer Cell Angiogenesis Suppression
The second anticancer effect of Fucoidan is suppressing cancer cell Angiogenesis. If a cancer grows to a certain size, they begin to steal the oxygen and nutrients from nearby organs. This allows them to grow and to metastasize. This is what we know as cancer cell Angiogenesis. According to many studies, Fucoidan has the ability to suppress cancer cell Angiogenesis to prevent a possible metastasis.
Once Fucoidan is absorbed in the intestine, it activates a series of immune responses through the intestinal flora. The activation of a series of immune cells is what starts the fight against cancer.
The effect of Fucoidan on prostate, breast, lung, bladder, and liver cancer, as well as the means by which different forms of cancer travel through and metastasize in other parts of the body, have all been researched in multiple studies. In all of the studies, Fucoidan contributed to the cell death of cancerous cells by disrupting and destroying the cancer cell’s mitochondria. The mitochondria are responsible for the cell’s ability to make energy. In spite of Fucoidan’s cytotoxic effects on cancer cells, Fucoidan does not cause any damage to healthy cells and it does not cause any harmful side effects.
Fucoidan is a natural product from the sea. It is a special kind of seaweed. However, because people generally do not like the taste of seaweed by itself, Fucoidan is generally mixed with fruit and vegetable juices to mask the taste of seaweed.
The anti-cancer effect of Fucoidan is well proven and has been the focus of many, many scientific studies. Fucoidan safely kills cancer cells and does not harm non-cancerous cells. Fucoidan has cured many cases of cancer by itself, but it is recommended, to be used in conjunction with other “Stage IV” protocols as a supplemental protocol. The protocol for Fucoidan involves 16 ounces a day (or 1/2 of a one-liter bottle). This dose should be divided into several small doses spread out during the day. Pill versions generally use 2 pills every day. It is recommended to take at least 3 to 6 g to fight cancer and other malignant diseases.
Properties of Fucoidan
Research suggests Fucoidan has several therapeutic properties. It contains antioxidants, which protect against cell damage, and is sold as a dietary supplement. Fucoidan kills viruses and combats inflammation. It also can stimulate and balance the immune system, guard against neurotoxicity and prevent blood clots. Seaweeds traditionally have been used to treat high blood pressure, bacterial and viral infections, and inflammatory conditions. While there are no major adverse side effects associated with taking Fucoidan, the compound may interact with blood-thinning medications, such as warfarin and heparin.
