Fucoxanthin Capsules And How To Take Them?
In recent developing years, there’s been a vast increase in the consumption of calories, fats, and sugars.
The intake of junk food/fast food is also responsible for the increase in calories. Workouts or physical activity have been considerably reduced in the past years. Unfortunately, such significant health and lifestyle shifts have made people prone to various health issues like obesity, diabetes mellitus, cancer, and other life-threatening diseases.
Pharmacological treatment alone can’t be advantageous for the treatment of these diseases. This is why the researchers started looking for valuable functional ingredients to help prevent life-threatening diseases. Luckily, they found a vital component known as fucoxanthin.
This functional ingredient is a carotenoid found in marine algae. Fucoxanthin has a unique molecular structure which makes it the only carotenoid having such molecular structure among all the other brown seaweed carotenoids.
Fucoxanthin is shown to have high antioxidant activity and has anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-diabetes properties.
Structure of Fucoxanthin:
Fucoxanthin has almost the same structure as neoxanthin, dinoxanthin, and peridinin. It has an allenic bond along with conjugated double bonds present in it. Also, there are some oxygenic functional groups present in it too. However, to keep the fucoxanthin as stable as possible, it should be kept safe from heating, aerial exposure and illumination.
Absorption of Fucoxanthin:
According to research, after ingestion of fucoxanthin in mice, it is directly hydrolyzed in the first two hours in the GI tract without having to be shown in the plasma or liver. It is then converted into its metabolite and is shown in the liver of mice.
Moreover, fucoxanthin should be given orally. It can easily dissolve in fish oil and not in vegetable oils.
Is It a Safe Pharmaceutical Ingredient?
Multiple types of research showed that fucoxanthin speeds up the metabolism without stimulating the central nervous system. In a toxicity study conducted on rats, the oral dosage of fucoxanthin showed no signs of toxicity. Multiple other studies were conducted, and they all showed no toxicity. This concludes that it is indeed a safe pharmaceutical ingredient.
