Seaweed increased strength
Seaweed contains anti-inflammatory molecules called fucoidan. In the lab, researchers gave mice a low and high dose of fucoidan, or a placebo. After 21 days, compared to placebo, grip strength and endurance swimming times increased as fucoidan doses increased, signs of fatigue were about 20 percent lower, and lipid profiles, liver, and kidney functions all improved. Doctors said the results suggest
fucoidan can reduce fatigue, and may have antioxidant and lipid benefits as well.
