Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid (like lutein and lycopene), a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage. It is the pigment that gives brown seaweed its characteristic color and also participates in photosynthesis (the conversion of light into energy). It is found in several different types of brown seaweed. Marine vegetables (edible seaweed) have long been considered among the most nutritious vegetation on Earth, and have been included in the diets of various Asian cultures since ancient times. Recent research suggests that natural compounds in marine vegetables can significantly affect fat metabolism and that fucoxanthin is one of the key ingredients that, along with diet and exercise, may have helped to minimize health and weight issues among Asian populations where it is consumed the most.
fucoPROTEIN Bars are the only dietary supplement bars in the market that contain concentrated fucoxanthin. As opposed to many other bars, fucoPROTEIN Bars provide protein from whole food sources, other bars include isolated protein from whey or soy. Additionally, Garden of Life does not add any extra isolated nutrients such as vitamins and minerals to artificially increase the values on the supplement fact panel.
