This product has a great deal of benefits that I have experience 1st and the Best is it's boost in immunity, since being on this supplement I have not been sick in >6 months I use to get sick at least 4x a year. 2nd This is an excellent and strong antioxidant - I've noticed a decrease in aches and pains, increased exercise tolerance, fast healing of wounds (cuts, lacerations, abrasions) and better gastrointestinal function. 3rd it improves the quality of your skin and I have had less acne. It has been known to help with cancer - and that would make since mainly because it increases your body's immune system. It does this be helping your body better identify cells that are healthy and those that are sick (infected with virus, damaged by bacteria, or mutated into malignant phase), this allows your bodies natural defense to better kill, target, and manage those cells much more EFFICIENTLY. Therefore, your body would be better in fighting cancerous cells as well. Where as most chemotherapy works by be toxic to all cells that divide naturally, it more toxic to cancerous cells because their more metabolically active and divide at a high rate. Fucoidan could work by a completely different mechanism than chemo and should add at least an additive effect if not a synergistic effect to cancer treatments.
