Fucoidan And Kidney Health New Study In India

Jan 22, 2008
Though neither The Original Limu Company nor I make any medical claims concerning this product, it is imperative that information disseminates through proper channels, especially when medical research is often done in other countries, and news does not make it here, at least not immediately. That is one of the wonders of the Internet, to me. As soon as we learn of it we can share. I am proud, though, albiet a few years later, that all of the major networks recently in the U.S. gave very glowing reports regarding Limu Juice and the immune system.

I distributeLimu Juicefor a company known as The Original Limu Company. Ours has about forteen hundred percent more fucoidan (the active ingredient) than the second leading competitor's product because of a patented process owned by our firm, which was the first to cultivate and produce it into a tasty tropical juice made of mango, pear, and apples.

A good many of my clients have asked me about the effects on kidney stones, renal failure and such. Of course not being a doctor or urologist, I can't give a definitive answer. But I can share recent research conducted last year in India that might clear things up for them. I hope this helps. Please contact me if I can be of further service. My website features much more information on this amazing natural healing product.

Renal peroxidative changes mediated by oxalate: the protective role of fucoidan. Life Sci. 2006 Oct 4;79(19):1789-95. Epub 2006 Jun 16. Department of Medical Biochemistry, Dr ALM Post Graduate Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Madras, Taramani Campus, Chennai, India.

A primary constituent of renal stones, oxalate, is known to induce free radicals which damage the renal membrane. Damaged epithelia might act as nidi for stone formation aggravating calcium oxalate precipitation during hyperoxaluria. In the present study, the beneficial effects of fucoidan on oxalate-induced free radical injury were investigated. Male Wistar rats were divided into four groups. Hyperoxaluria was induced in two groups by administration of 0.75% ethylene glycol in drinking water for 28 days and one of them was treated with fucoidan from Fucus vesiculosus at a dose of 5 mg/kg b.wt subcutaneously commencing from the 8th day of induction. A control and drug control (fucoidan alone) was also included in the study. The extent of renal injury in hyperoxaluria was evident from the increased activities of alkaline phosphatase, gamma-glutamyl transferase, beta-glucuronidase, N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase in urine. There was a positive correlation between plasma malondialdehyde levels and renal membrane damage indicating a striking relation between free radical formation and cellular injury. Increased protein carbonyl and decreased thiols further exemplified the oxidative milieu prevailing during hyperoxaluria. Decreased renal membrane ATPases accentuated the renal membrane damage induced by oxalate. Renal microscopic analysis showed abnormal findings in histology as an evidence of oxalate damage. The above biochemical and histopathological discrepancies were abrogated with fucoidan administration, indicating its protective role in oxalate mediated peroxidative injury.

So from this study, and over 650 others over the past several decades, it appears at the very least, it could have some positive effects on keeping the kidneys healthy. There are other studies worldwide that I will share in future blogs regarding its possible anti-aging properties and positive effects on the entire immune system. One may visit my site for very good educational materials on both the juice itself and becoming a distributor.
