Maritech® Fucus vesiculosus extract


Fucus vesiculosus - small branch of the molecule

Maritech® Fucus vesiculosus extract is a highly characterised, certified organic fucoidan ingredient sourced from wild Fucus vesiculosus seaweed. This seaweed (commonly known as bladderwrack) grows in the pristine coastal waters of Nova Scotia, Canada, where it is harvested on an environmentally sustainable basis.

The unique fucoidan found in Fucus vesiculosus seaweed is highly sulfated, with a backbone containing predominantly fucose. A small ‘branch’ of the molecule can be seen on the left or above. Fucoidan extracted from Fucus vesiculosus seaweed has been shown to have a range of biological properties, including beneficial effects in the areas of immune health and gut & digestive health.

Extensively tested, this high-purity natural ingredient is a versatile and superior choice for a variety of dietary supplement and nutraceutical formulations.


Clinical testing has confirmed that Maritech® Fucus vesiculosus extract is safe for human consumption. It is a natural seaweed compound that has been shown to be non-toxic and non-allergenic.
