Product Description

fucus vesiculosus


Fucus vesiculosus is a brownish-green colored algae that is more commonly known as bladder wrack or kelp. It is native to the western shores of the Mediterranean Sea and to the North Atlantic coasts. Although it has many uses, ranging from fuel to food for cattle, it is also a popular homeopathic remedy. It may be used to prevent goiter or thyroid disease, to promote weight loss, to treat rheumatism, and as an antiviral treatment.

This marine plant is both flexible and strong. Although brownish-green when alive, fucus vesiculosus turns black when it dries out. It has a strong odor and an unpleasant taste. This alga contains polysaccharides, polyphenols, and minerals, specifically iodine. The polysaccharides generally work to stimulate the immune system, while the iodine works to stimulate the thyroid.

Many people claim this algae promotes weight loss through the use of a patch or capsules made from the alga. It is believed that since the alga is high in iodine, iodine levels in the body will increase by consuming the capsules or wearing the patch. The body uses iodine to make the thyroid hormone, which manages the body`s metabolism. Consequently, users hope there will be an increase in the production of the thyroid hormone by wearing the patch and also an increase in the body`s metabolism. By increasing the body`s metabolism, a person may be able to lose weight without exercising and dieting.

Medical use

Recently the researchers found that an extract of Fucus vesiculosus, promotes the contraction of fibroblast-populated collagen gels through increased expression of integrin molecules. In this study, they investigated the effects of topical application of an aqueous extract of this alga on the thickness and the mechanical properties of human skin. A gel formulation that included 1% of the extract was applied topically to human cheek skin twice daily for five weeks. A significant decrease in skin thickness measured by B-mode ultrasound was elicited, as was a significant improvement in elasticity measured with a Cutometer as compared with controls. In cheek skin, the thickness normally increases and the elasticity usually decreases with age. These results suggest that the Fucus vesiculosus extract possesses anti-aging activities and may be useful for a variety of cosmetics
