Fucoidan’s Cancer Fighting Power
Fucoidan is not a cure for cancer, but science has shown that it can be effective in lowering the risk for cancer and bolstering immunity against the disease if it does develop. Fucoidan’s powerful anti-cancer properties have been found effective against several cell lines, especially lung and breast cancer, in a number of scientific investigations. French researchers have focused on limu’s production of interleukin and interferon, two potent immune enhancers, and suggest this may be why it is such a potent anti-tumor agent.
Researchers Have Discovered that Fucoidan:
Inhibits tumor cell adhesion and colonization so they cannot attach to healthy cells or grow. (Source: S. Soeda et al; Roszkowski et al.)
Prevents metastis (Source: H. Itoh et al.)
Promotes anti-angiogenesis, which stops tumors from making new blood vessels and thus growing (Source: G. Zugmaier et al.)
Bolsters the immune system (Source: E.A. Sweeney et al.; S.D. Somers et al.; I.Sugawara et al.; V. Ooi et al.)
The Harvard Study (Breast Cancer Study):
A study from Harvard School of Public Health indicates that limu’s fucoidan may specifically reduce the risk of breast cancer by: - Reducing plasma cholesterol (reducing cancer risk) – Inhibiting binding of toxic steroids to breast tissue – Halting the transformation of phospholipids to carcinogens – Preventing build-up of carcinogenic flora in bowel – Protecting against toxins/pollutants – Supplying trace minerals, which protect breast tissue
Cancer Treatment – Fucoidan’s Help
Surgery – Often the first step in cancer treatment is to remove the tumor surgically. Researchers in Canada, Turkey, Poland and France have demonstrated that FUCOIDAN boosts would recovery. Radiation Therapy – Focused beams of radiation targeting the cancerous area is another way to fight cancer. While often very effective, radiation can reduce the number of lymphocytes, which weakens the body’s ability to fight infection. FUCOIDAN boosts the immune system to help the body fight infection. Immunotherapy – Using the body’s own immune system to fight cancer is forming the basis for some of the latest cancer treatments. FUCOIDAN’S ability to stimulate the immune system has been proven in studies throughout the world. Take a Proactive Stance Against Cancer – Enjoy a Nutritious Diet – including Limu. – Avoid Smoking – Maintain a Healthy Weight through Diet and Exercise – Consume Alcohol in moderation – Wear sunscreen – Avoid Exposure to Pollutants and Toxins.
Limu and Fucoidan – Limu is brown seaweed hailed by the natives along the South Pacific coast of Tonga as an essential part of their health. In fact, the Tongans have long regarded limu ass a treasure from the sea for over 3,000 years! Science is now finding out why – limu’s fucoidan. DID YOU KNOW? Limu retains minerals and nutrients from the sea in colloidal form. COLLOIDAL means the vitamins and minerals are suspended in liquid, making them easily absorbed and quickly utilized by the human body. The average Western diet is critically deficient in many naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals reducing the optimal functioning of the body’s organs and immune system. Our ability to recover from illness and disease is also undermined by our inadequate diet. Limu helps fill these nutritional gaps and is important remedy for wellness.
Reduce Your Cancer Risk – Myth: Cancer is often thought of as a genetic disease, it is not. A nutrient deficient diet ranks only second to cigarette smoking as a PREVENTABLE cause of the disease. This is good news! It means that the choices we make, especially in what we eat, can help substantially lower the risk of cancer.
More Good News: There is a nutrient that has caught researchers’ attention and their scrutiny. Research has shown that limu can:
PROHIBIT CAN CER CELLS FROM DEVELOPING – INHIBIT METASTASIS (SPREAD OF CANCER) – HELP RECOVERY FROM CHEMO
Super Nutrient – FUCOIDAN
This antioxidant-rich complex carbohydrate polysaccharide has shown that it can be effective in lowering your risk of cancer and bolstering your immunity against the disease. Fucoidan is the main ingredient found in limu and has been the subject of more than 650 studies. And best of all, every bit of the information was gathered by independent unsolicited, third party research.
Polysaccharides are complex carbohydrates that research has found to have many therapeutic properties, including the ability to modulate the body’s natural immunity, specifically macrophage function (large white cells that go into action when the body is invaded by an infection or disease).

Limu from Tonga is harvested in a special careful professional manner and other brown seaweeds from around the world are not harvested with the exact same care. Check out Christofer's new website at: http://www.Astrologygetalong.com.
