Its functionality has been studied and published in the world’s best universities and institutions including University of Tokyo, Harvard Medical School, Yale University, and MD Anderson in Texas. It is highly expected to see a synergistic effect by taking Fucoidan and AHCC®.

9. Can't I just eat seaweeds or mushrooms to get the same benefits as NatureMedic® Fucoidan?
Whole mushrooms do have many beneficial nutrients, but AHCC is created from culturing selected mushrooms to produce a functional food that has a unique polysaccharide called acetylated alpha-glucan. Alpha-glucan has a low molecular weight that makes it easy to digest and absorb. This unique component possesses a powerful immune-stimulating action that ordinary mushrooms and other mushroom supplements do not contain. To take the right amount of Fucoidan, you will need to consume more than 3 kg of seaweed per day. This amount of brown seaweed is not logical to consume. NatureMedic® Fucoidan powered with AHCC® offers both extracts combined in a very unique and innovative dietary supplement.

10. What is the difference between beta (β)- and acetylated alpha (α) glucans?
Acetylated α-glucan has a comparatively low molecular weight (around 5,000 daltons) while β-glucan has the molecular weight in the range of tens to hundreds of thousands of daltons.
