Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract


Undaria pinnatifida - small branch of the molecule

Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida extract is a highly characterised, certified organic fucoidan ingredient sourced from wild Undaria pinnatifida seaweed. This seaweed (commonly known as wakame or mekabu) grows in the pristine ocean waters of Patagonia and Tasmania, where it is hand-harvested on an environmentally sustainable basis.

Fucoidans are compounds that vary in structure and bioactivity. This unique fucoidan is highly sulfated and acetylated, with a backbone containing both fucose and galactose. A small ‘branch’ of the molecule is pictured on the left or above. Extensive research on Maritech® Undaria pinnatifida fucoidan has shown the compound exhibits a wide range of biological properties, including beneficial effects in the areas of immune function, gut & digestive health and healthy ageing. 

Extensively tested, this ingredient is a unique and superior choice for a wide variety of dietary supplement and nutraceutical formulations.


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