General description

Fucoxanthin is isolated from brown algae. It has anti-angiogenic, hepatoprotective, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular protective properties. Fucoxanthin stimulates G1 cell-cycle arrest and apoptosis in cancer cell lines.


Fucoxanthin has been used to study its neuroprotective effects. It has also been used in calibration to identify the most efficient fucoxanthin producing strains of microalgae.
