The powers of seaweeds have been drawn upon for thousands of years for their ability to prolong life, prevent disease, and impart beauty and health. Worldwide research is continuosly being done and brown seaweed has been found to be the most beneficial.
Our product, Modifilan, is the purest, most organic extract made from the brown seaweed Laminaria Japonica. This extract contains the life essential properties of organic iodine, alginates, fucodian and laminarin.
The Benefits of using Modifilan:
is the difference between Modifilan and dried seaweed?
A. Modifilan is not dried seaweed. Modifilan is made from the nutrient-rich central vein of Laminaria Japonica; brown seaweed. The heavy outer fibers are sloughed off prior to processing. The rich nutrients remain. These nutrients are polysaccharides and are easily absorbed by our bodies because the seaweed is "predigested." (The stomach does not first have to break down the rough outer fibers.) Forty to fifty pounds of raw seaweed are needed to make just one pound of
Modifilan is pure Laminaria japonica extract harvested by divers from the clean, cold waters of the Northwest Pacific; concentrated brown seaweed rich in nutrients, containing significant amounts of vitamins, alginates, iodine and more. Modifilan is a very concentrated powder of the central vein of Laminaria japonica. Over 40 pounds of raw brown seaweed make one pound of Modifilan. With simple dried seaweed, the ratio is approximately only eight to one. The seaweed is not heated nor processed. Over 40% of Modifilan is alginates, which are the perfect absorbers of dangerous heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, cobalt and radium as well as radioactive elements. These pollutants slowly collect in your body over time, irritating the body and disrupting the immune system. Mercury (found in amalgam teeth fillings, fish, and pesticides) is 5000 times more toxic to the body than lead. Mercury stores itself in the organs such as the brain, liver, kidneys and nerves. Worldwide research indicates that brown seaweed shows great promise in:
Detoxifier One of the main tonic benefits of Modifilan is as a detoxifier of heavy metals and radioactive elements. The active ingredient in Modifilan is the alginates (algal polysaccharides). Alginates are ideal absorbers of toxins because they bond with these contaminants and promote their disposal outside the body. These toxins that we absorb from our environment are linked with many diseases. For example, it is suspected that an accumulation of excess aluminum may contribute to a brain deterioration known as Alzheimer's disease. Radiation from nuclear fallout, X-rays, microwaves, high-voltage power lines, televisions, computer monitors, and many other sources saturate people with radiation causing free-radical pathology and thereby contributing to aging, cellular distortion, leukemia and other forms of cancer, birth defects, anemia and other diseases. These effects can be countered with Modifilan. Modifilan was first used in Chernobyl to treat victims of radioactive fallout with great success.
Lowering CholesterolThese alginates not only detoxify the body but have been shown in research to be capable of lowering cholesterol. Alginates, being a pectin-like substance, possess strong gel-forming qualities which are responsible for its cholesterol-lowering effects.
Tumor Cells Another important element of brown seaweed is Fucoidan. It has been shown to be effective in slowing or stopping the growth of tumor cells and inhibiting chemical carcinogens in animals. Worldwide research also shows brown seaweed has great promise as an anti-viral and anti-cancer substance. And, because seaweed helps decongest swollen or inflamed lymph nodes, it can be consumed as a treatment for autoimmune illnesses such as chronic fatigue, HIV, arthritis and chronic allergies.

Lowering High Blood Sugar Brown seaweed has also been shown to be capable of lowering high blood sugar, due to the naturally occuring combination of nutrients especially chromium (active in blood sugar control) and iodine (benefits metabolism).
Perfect Food Supplement By eating brown seaweed, we tap into the ancestral source of all life--the ocean--and replenish our bodies from this vast reservoir with essential and hard-to-get nutrients. Truly, nature's own recipe of nutrients cannot be improved.

Konbu (Laminaria ssp.) contains a substance that causes cancer cells to self-destruct. It has only been recently discovered in Japan that this substance is U-fucoidan, a complex polysaccharide, one among many polysaccharides found in konbu. In research in Japan, U-fucoidan administered to cancer cells in a laboratory dish were virtually wiped out within 72 hours. The process by which these cells withered away was self-induced, in that the DNA within each of the cancer cells was broken down by digestive enzymes contained in the cells themselves. This process is known by the technical term "apoptosis".
Although U-fucoidan is found in other seaweeds and plants, konbu is particularly rich in this substance. And, very importantly, in order to consume fucoidan in its pure and effective form, one has to eat konbu raw or dried without heating. It is interesting to note that Okinawa, Japan has the lowest cancer mortality rate in Japan where the people eat their konbu mostly raw, versus other parts of Japan where it is used mostly in cooking.

Modifilan contains nothing but
central vein of Laminaria which has been gently dried without heating,
and without any chemical sprays or preservatives. Modifilan, unlike
dried seaweed, contains a much higher percentage of complex
or alginates (40%), in which the U-fucoidan is contained.

If you are interested in natural cancer treatments, we recommend the CancerTutor website for information. It is packed with information about various cancer treatments and diets available to everyone. There is so much information on this site, you should read it a little at a time to decide what is the best treatment or diet for you. Understandably, you may feel overwhelmed by all the information at first. Our advice is.....bookmark the site, go back to it from time to time and read sections of it, making notes on the things that you feel you could implement. By returning to the site many times, you will begin to sort it all out and decide on the kind of program you would be able to follow.
