U-Fucoidan: Anti-Cancer Substance
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, versus other parts of Japan where it is used mostly in cooking.

Modifilan contains nothing but the central vein of Laminaria which has been gently dried without heating, and without any chemical sprays or preservatives. Modifilan, unlike plain dried seaweed, contains a much higher percentage of complex polysaccharides or alginates (40%), in which the U-fucoidan is contained.
Alginates are heteropolysaccharides made up of mannuronic and guluronic acids. Modifilan has 40-60% alginates. It is widely known that alginates from brown seaweed offer the best protection from radiation and environmental pollutants. Alginates bind with heavy metals such as lead, mercury and other; radioactive elements: strontium, barium, cesium etc. and are then excreted from the body. Alginates are non-toxic and are not reabsorbed into the rest of the body from the gastrointestinal tract. Alginates do not adversely effect the body’s ability to absorb calcium and other natural minerals.
is a concentrated extract of the brown seaweed Laminaria japonica. This seaweed
is gathered in the clean waters of the northwestern Pacific Ocean. Forty
pounds of raw Laminaria japonica is needed to make just one pound of Modifilan.
This unique patented technology "semidigests" the tough outerlayer of
seaweed fibers exposing, concentrating and making much more bio-available the
macro-and micronutrient-dense central vein of the Laminaria.

I have used your product MODIFILAN extensively over the last year (1998/1999) for numerous reasons. I am fully aware of the naturopathic effects and biochemistry of this product and, therefore, I have found it to be a great adjunct and treatment choice for many of my patients. Since I have done most of my work in arthritis, collagen research and functional nutritional biochemistry, immunity and chelation therapy, I have applied and used this product for those reasons. The response was very good, gratifying and in some cases, rather significant. Some of my patients have reported excellent results in conjunction with oral chelation therapy, e.g. detoxification re: mercury, cadmium, lead, etc. Personally, I have experienced the same effects over the last 6-8 months. Certainly, I am planning to continue on a daily basis with taking Modifilan. It is needless to say that Modifilan would affect and lower cholesterol (LDL), regulate blood sugar and exert different anti-viral and anti-cancer effects. It is one of the best, most pure vitamin supplements and there is a good use for hypothyroidism due to iodine content. Also, it is a well known fact that cholesterol metabolism is closely connected with algorithm of collagen cartilage breakdown—e.g. osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. This botanical product or Laminaria japonica (Modifilan) is one of the most clean, cold-water harvested plant from Northwestern Pacific (non-polluted geographic portion of our earth).
I am sure that an ongoing use of this product would bring up more of the results in many areas and disciplines of patient’s care (generally and specifically).
I can fully recommend this product.
Dear Vladimir M. Bajanov;
I have been eager to write to you in regards to your product, Modifilan. I spoke to you recently during the Cancer Conference in Universal City, California during the month of Sept. 1999. I have used your product Modifilan over the past 12 months. I was eager to speak to you during the conference to express to you how pleased I am with your product.
I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two years and four months ago. As a result of my condition my doctors performed an intensive surgery called a Whipple procedure. After my surgery, I also underwent chemotherapy and radiation.
Due to the surgery and my chemotherapy and radiation, I was told by my doctors that I would never get back to my original weight. I had lost a total of 18 pounds.
A year ago I had met you and discovered your product at a Cancer Conference in Pasadena, California. I was desperately seeking something that would help me feel more energized and help me put back some of the weight I had lost. After searching all day at the conference, I finally found your product on my way out. Since then I have been taking Modifilan daily.
As a result, I have gained back almost all of my weight, 14 pounds. I have also noticed an increase in my energy level and my red blood cell count is back to normal. I truly believe your product is responsible for my new health because I have not tried any other products. I am happy to say that to this day I am cancer free and enjoying life tremendously every day.
Thank you for helping me get my health back! I will continue to use your product daily and highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about trying it.
and Mrs. S. McGrath,
For the past five years I have worked in the computer industry. I noticed I was losing my hair all over my head. My energy level was not very good.
I started to take Modifilan, three capsules per day, about one year ago. I immediately noticed I had a great deal more energy and felt better in general. After about one month, I noticed my hair stopped falling out when I combed it in the morning. I also noticed that the structure of my hair felt stronger and the color was richer-looking.
My wife at the same time also began taking Modifilan, about one capsule per day. She noticed a big increase in her energy level and sense of well-being as well. She noticed her nails became stronger.
I highly recommend this product for everyone who works in front of a computer and for general health for everyone.
I have always known that I get the most minerals from eating sea vegetables yet I don't always take the time to prepare them. Modifilan makes it easy for me to get those nutrients. I also love the way it tastes and I like to open up the capsules and put it on my food. It's great on a salad or rice and it takes the place of salt. Because the kombu is processed in it's raw state I know that I am getting the most nutrients from it.
I highly recommend this product and a staple to anyone's diet.
husband and I are using Modifilan ritually and feel increased energy and good
digestion. He is not taking Tylenol for his headaches anymore. He
certainly is not changing his bad diet, so it must be your product. Thank you
for your wonderful product.
