Fucoidan & Colon Cancer | Fucoidan Health Benefits

How Fucoidan Kills Cancer Cells:

fucoidan and cancerMany people have heard of fucoidan, it’s health benefits and how it has been clinically proven to kill cancer cells by causing apoptosis (cellular death).  Here is just one of hundreds of studies about fucoidan and cancer published on pubmed.gov.

BACKGROUND: Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide found in brown algae/seaweed; it has been shown to exhibit a number of biological effects, including anti-tumor effects. In this study, we evaluated the effects of fucoidan on apoptosis (cell death) in HT-29 and HCT116 human colon cancer cells.

RESULTS: Fucoidan induced substantial reductions in viable cell numbers and apoptosis of HT-29 and HCT116 cells in a dose-dependent manner. In HT-29 cells, fucoidan also increased the levels of cleaved caspases-8, -9, -7, and -3, and cleaved poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) levels.

CONCLUSION: The findings of this study indicate that fucoidan induces apoptosis in HT-29 and HCT116 human colon cancer cells, and that this phenomenon is mediated via both the death receptor-mediated and mitochondria-mediated apoptotic pathways. These results suggest that fucoidan may prove useful in the development of a colon cancer-preventive protocol.

Fucoidan Causes Cancer Cells To Self Destruct:

Fucoidan benefits
The Biomedical Research Laboratories of Takara Shuzo and the Research Institute for Glycotechnology Advancement have focused their attention on the anti-tumor properties of Fucoidan, and have managed to confirm that this substance causes certain types of rapidly growing cancer cells to self-destrct.

Examples of cancer cell strains where this self-destruct phenomenon was observed include human acute promyelocytic leukemia cells (HL-60 cell line), human stomach cancer cells (AGS cell line), human colon cancer cells (HCT-116 cell line), and cancer cells of the descending colon (SW-480 cell line/WiDr cell line). Moreover, this self-destruction was observed to take place without affecting normal cells.

Fucoidan & Cancer:

So when all is said and done, my opinion is that chemo & radiation kill everything.  Only 2% of the people treated with chemo & radiation go without cancer again; 98% have a recurrence within 5 years.

Fucoidan on the other hand has every ability to kill cancer in its tracks and boost healthy cell function.  Unfortunately in the U.S. we are not offered alternatives or integrative medicines to help when we get sick.  Our disease is named and then the symptoms are treated instead of finding the root cause.  It is really bass akwards!  What ever happened to educating people, offering options & healing through nutrition? Nutrition that has the ability to kill cancer without harming your health!

Fucoidan, Radiation or Chemo?

At this point Dr.s pretty much say “get your things in order” and then administer yet another round of chemo.  This post is in loving memory of Stan Aschenbrenner, my step Father (really a Father) who died on Superbowl Sunday 2011.

In June of 2010 he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer & he chose the Allopathic path of chemo and radiation.  To all who read this there were many symptoms of something gone wrong, long before he finally went to the Dr.  Our bodies talk but we don’t always listen.  On February 6th 2011 Stan left this world for another adventure.  As his children held him & cried, I found myself rethinking my purpose and passion.  Why am I doing this?  Do people really want to get healthy?  Do I make a difference? Is all this time spent writing, speaking and teaching on regenerative nutrition & holistic healing worth it?

Filled with doubt and anger the questions continued.  After all, I educate people and offer solutions to treat the root cause of diseases like Colon Cancer & it just took my Father’s life.  It is hard to put all the emotion in words but I am still here, writing with a new found zeal to be the change I want to see in the world.fucoidan and colon cancer

A most honorable man, Stan will always be remembered & cherished.  I met him when I was 4 and I’ve been his daughter ever since.  He took me in as his own, taught me how to ride a bike, fish, play 1,000 aces, chop wood, camp & live.  So this “dose” of education is in ever loving memory of him.  I love you Dad.

If you know someone suffering with cancer and looking for effective alternatives to chemo and radiation, Fucoidan is a proven cancer treatment.  Time and time again in both clinical studies and in real cases it has stopped tumor growth, kill cancer cells and rejuvenate the body on a cellular level.

With loving gratitude to the people in my life who have made me and formed me.

Hi Dani-I saw your site and really liked it.
I am out in Japan and I know that you are aware of the situation here.
There is going to be a real need , for fucoidan (pure sources) in the future,to help people with their health.

If you have any thoughts on that please drop me a mail



    Hello Chris, I am so happy that you liked the site, it is my “baby”. My passion is to help people live healthy with the nutrition our planet provides instead of medications.
    As for Fucoidan, I could not agree with you more. My husband and I have been talking about the need for pure sources of fucoidan. We are very dependent on this nutrient as it has completely changed our families health. I am of the opinion that Tonga provides the most pure source of limu moui (highest concentration of active fucoidan) at this time. There is also some further purification that takes place in the extraction process. Fucoidan is an extremely powerful nutrient that will help our Earth, as well as us humans recover from devastation.

    As seaweed naturally detoxifies our oceans, heavy metals must be removed to ensure safety. My heart goes out to all of Japan, we support with money from here but I know it is NOT enough. SISEL – the company that manufactures Fucoydon (fucoidan) is very connected with Japan and what is going on there by the hour. We are donating funds, clothing etc and they send it directly to the people most in need plus match every dollar donated.

    I wish you the best and would actually advise that you and your loved ones there start taking Spectramaxx – I have attached some literature on this product and will be posting about it soon. Please let me know if I can help in any way.

    Thanks for reaching out.

    By the way, I tried to send you an email but it said the email address was wrong. I would like to correspond, you can email me at dani@daniwalker.com

    Hello Rochelle, please let me know how your Mom does. Fucoidan is a very powerful anti-cancer nutrient.


Hi, I have been looking ard and researching for fucoidan since a few months ago.
My father was diagnosed with cancer in the colon ,stage 3.
Aft the operation, he went for chemotherapy and now 4 years has past.
Last year he was doing one of the regular checkups and we found out that the cancer has came back but to his lungs.
Due to the negative thoughts we have for chemotherapy, my dad tried all Chinese medicines but to no avail.
My dad is very skinny now. Our hearts aches when we see him in pain.
Now he wishes to give fucoidan a try.
I pray it works.

    Hello Darren, fucoidan is an absolutely amazing nutrient. Asian cultures have been using it for centuries and at this time continue to use it to heal and prevent cancer. I am here to offer help and have emailed you a “book” of information on Fucoidan, how it causes cancer cells to self destruct and more. As you know my favorite fucoidan supplement is Fucoydon. We have had many successes with Leukemia, colon, lung, liver, breast, skin cancers and more. I wish your Father all the best in health and happiness. Dani


The problem is, the doctors inhibit all supplements while on chemo/radiation, and that means one has to wait for at least 6 months before one can take these supplements or treatments, any suggestions?


    Hello Saleh, you are right. In Western (Alopathic) medicine most Drs say it’s either my way or the highway. It is very unfortunate because Fucoidan has been clinically proven to inhibit cancer, aid chemotherapy and relieve nausea. As always we have to say that you should consult your physician. Some choose to consult them and then make their own decisions for what they think is best for their health. Follow your intuition! Be your own health advocate and feel free to contact me anytime.


      Hi Dani, I also really like your site. I recently lost my wonderful dad 6 months ago due to cancer. I understand and know the pain you went through. I recently learned about fucoidan about 3 weeks ago, and amazed all the stories regarding taking fucoidan on websites. Wish we knew about this for our wonderful dads. I recently introduced fucoidan to my brother’s father in law who has liver cancer and been at home hospice. He been taking fucoidan for almost 2 weeks now. Wish and pray it works along with buddha gives him miracles. The fucoidan we bought is too expensive $270 per bottle for 120 pills. He been taking 15 pills per day. We worry financially we can’t afford in long term. The only wish and prayer right now is for fucoidan works for him just like I heard from many great stories form websites that I had been googled. I have been passing information about fucoidan to people I know and have them passing along to anyone they know have cancer. Wish you all the best


        Hello Thu, thank you for your response and understanding. I wish we did not share this experience in common but know that millions of people are fighting cancer every day. The fucoidan (Fucoydon) I recommend and have had many people have amazing results on is in liquid form. Contains all 3 types of fucoidan (U, F, & G) and is much less expensive and in my opinion far more effective because of the immense concentration of active fucoidan molecules.

        You can research this Fucoydon formula more at http://live.mysiselpro.com/v1/Products/nutritionals/fucoydon.aspx It is $53 per bottle + tax and shipping. A person with stage 4 terminal cancer would want to take 1/2 to 1oz. every 3 hours. At this amount (around 4oz. per day) you would need 4 bottles a month, which would cost around $220 but all customers get a 20% rebate to use toward future purchases as well.

        I am here to help and if you want any specific info on the Fucoydon formula please email me at dani@daniwalker.com My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.


Hi Saleh, per the k-fudoidan.com website, fudoidan can be taken same time with other medication. This is because fudoidan is made out of natural from seaweed. You could google fudoidan and you will find more information of people giving comments of their stories. Hope this help


    My hope is that everyone reads this response. When considering which fucoidan supplement to purchase PLEASE make sure the source is not from Japan at this time. Due to large amounts of radiation in the coastal waters the source (brown seaweed) could be highly contaminated. Some radiation can be removed during processing but not all.

    Also, the brown seaweed, limu miou, contains the highest concentration of active fucoidan molecule (around 21% higher than other sources) thus the Fucoydon supplement I recommend is from limu miou. Also this limu miou is harvested from the waters of Tonga, almost 6,000 miles South of Japan and some of the most pristine ocean waters.

    Fucoydon has 20+ patents pending on the formula and the scientific process in which it is extracted and Sulphanated. Clinical trials have shown that fucoidan molecules are not active in many areas unless they are sulphonated; in nature only 1 in 7 fucoidan molecules are sulphonated. Without the sulphur atom many of the biological benefits are not possible. SISEL’s patent pending process ensures EVERY molecule of FuCoyDon is sulphonated. This can only be completed in the liquid state.

    Please know that all supplements are not created equal. Thank you for helping me spread the message about the power of Fucoidan. I am here to answer any questions I can and offer education instead of medication.
    Hugs to you all, Dani
