Fucoidan, from Fucus and Kelp

This ought to help a bit -- Fucus and Kelp, especially Kelp, is a big export product in North America and probably Europe too. You can buy it by the pound or ton as a powder and mix it with water, soup, stew, whatever, yourself. It's a good source of fucoidan, etc, as sea veggies are. In fact, fucoidan was named after the Fucus it was first discovered in.

But although the polysaccharides in fucoidan, sea cucumber, aloe, mushrooms etc. are good for you and each can perform functions depending on the chain lengths, polysaccharides are not the same as monosaccharides, and my information is that it's the monosaccharides that are incorporated into the glycoprotein receptor sites, which is the topic, really, of this forum.

Some, repeat some, monosaccharides can slough off the polysaccharide chains as the product ages and starts to break down enzymatically, or perhaps as you boil it, but still... I think you need monosaccharides as well unless you use quite a bit, which of course would be very good for you anyway.
