Wakame Reviews
Wakame, with botanical name as Undaria pinnatifida, belongs to the Alariaceae family and is one of the main cultivated marine seaweeds in China. As a eurythermic and perennial large brown alga, it is mainly distributed in Chinese coastal areas in the Liaoning, Shandong, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang Provinces. In addition to its primary nutritional value as a food source, U. pinnatifida potentially has therapeutic value. Studies have shown that U. pinnatifida is rich in polysaccharides and has a wide range of medicinal properties, including anti-tumor, anti-viral, and immunoregulatory activities. Because of its wide distribution, high yields, and commercially valuable extracts, U. pinnatifida is of commercial interest to both food and pharmaceutical industries.
Chemical Constitution of Wakame Powder Extract
Fucoxanthin, is only contained in brown seaweeds such as kelp, hijiki, and wakame seaweed in small quantities. It is a type of non-provitamin A carotenoid and it belongs to xanthophyll. Fucoxanthin has the allene structure and epoxide and hydroxyl groups. As studies on functionality of carotenoids as health food are actively carried out lately, functionality of fucoxanthin has been clarified as well. As a result of the studies, fucoxanthin has been reported to have activities to prevent obesity and diabetes, combat cancer, prevent oxidation of the body, prevent vascularization, and combat inflammations.
Health Benefits of Wakame Powder Extract
Although researches on the health benefits of taking Wakame Powder Extract are limited, some studies suggest that Wakame Powder Extract may offer certain health benefits. Here's a look at several key study findings:
Low-Cal Flavoring
Chefs would be first to tell you of wakame’s culinary benefits. "The Sydney Morning Herald" describes it as an edible sea vegetable with a delicate, briny flavor. The Japanese have traditionally cultivated wakame by growing it on ropes tied to offshore rafts. It’s the seaweed’s “leaves” or blades that are harvested. These can be eaten raw or cooked and can be added to soups and salads, for example, to give them that extra “umami” or savory taste. Yet it’s only about 4 calories per 10 grams of raw seaweed.
That tiny calorie content in wakame is due to its low levels of fat and carbohydrates. It’s also rich in vitamins and minerals. The USDA National Nutrient Database gives a complete nutritional profile of wakame; the list of nutritional benefits includes manganese, sodium, magnesium and calcium, and 5 percent of the recommended intake of folate in a 2 tablespoon serving. Wakame offers traces of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K and the rest of the B vitamin family. Don’t go overboard with the wakame, though, as it also contains a high amount of sodium.
Weight Control
Minerals and vitamins aren’t the only thing scientists have found in this brown seaweed. Physorg.com reports chemists in Japan have discovered that wakame contains a compound, fucoxanthin, that seems to reduce the accumulation of fat in animal tests. Fucoxanthin gives wakame its brownish appearance and aids in photosynthesis. This compound appears to stimulate fat oxidation and to stimulate the liver to produce more DHA, a type of omega-3 fatty acid that helps reduce the bad cholesterol associated with heart disease and obesity.
Anti-Cancer Properties
Wakame also seems to prevent cancer. A 2003 article in "Breast Cancer Research" reported that the sea vegetable is also rich in iodine, which in a previous Japanese study on breast cancer seemed to suppress, even kill, mammary tumors. It’s speculated that the iodine in wakame and other seaweeds that are so prevalent in Japanese cuisine are responsible for the relatively low breast cancer rate in both human males and females in Japan. This hypothesis is based on the observed increase in breast cancer rates among Japanese women who turned to a Western-style diet with less seaweed intake.
Wakame Powder Extract Side Effects
Wakame Powder Extract Fucoxanthin is likely safe without any side effects and there is no known interaction with current medicines. It should be noted, however, that rare cases of allergy have been reported by people having consumed Wakame.
Wakame Powder Extract Dosage
Recommended dosages of Wakame Powder Extract differ widely depending on the product and some other factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
