Okay, who takes fucus plus?  I just ordered some and want to try it.  I  have never taken the larch arabinogalactin.  Does everyone do okay with that?  What exactly does it do?  What is it?  I hope it doesn't contain starch.  Any comments on this product greatly appreciated.  

Thanks,

Was it you or someone else who asked about Dr. D'Adamo's products containing gluten?

Dr. D's products don't contain anything that isn't healthy for you.  I would trust them over anything else on the market today.  I've taken both of these products and do fine on them.  I think everybody should take ARA6 (larch).  I haven't gotten my regular annual flu this winter and I attribute it all to the larch & ghee.  And let me tell you, I would get it bad every year.  This past year, no flu in November or December!

Fucus Plus ie Bladderwrack has a few benefits....one being it's an anti adhesion food that blocks O lectins from agglutinating your cells....secondly it's a potent inhibitor of tumor cell division with modest anti tumor activity for O's......thirdly the fucoidins found in bladderwrack inhibit the growth of many unfriendly bacteria and viruses especially H. Pylori...as well as inhibiting inflammatory responses....lastly it normalizes thyroid function and is  an aid in weight loss and obesity

it's good stuff especially for O's non secretors

Does anyone know -- should I take Fucus with or without food?

Since there is nothing on the label indicating to take with or without food, I assume it doesn't matter.  I generally take supplements that don't specify with food so I don't get any burp back when the capsules dissolve, but if you'd rather take them alone, it shouldn't be a problem.

I take fucus plus twice a day with food.

Even though bladderwrack is an AVOID on my Swami, I've been told by an Admin that fucus plus is OK.

I am now off my low dose of 5 mcg of levothyroxine.

My thyroid was tested normal after 6 weeks of taking fucus plus.  (dance)

Fucus contains ARA (35mg) and is actually best taken away from meals.

Fucus should not be used in individuals currently taking thyroid medication, or in any iodine sensitive situation, such as acne.

In term of tyriod help the effect is eventually powerful but is a slow progressing one. it may help to take fucus regularly for a min of 3 months but results can take a year to get the best results.

I take it every day and have done for years at my stage i find taking it just in the morning is all I need as it is quite stimulating.

Thanks PCUK +, I'll try taking it away from food. Isa mentioned that she can't take fucus, due to the iodine. I like the results of fucus normalizing my thyroid but it may be making me sharp and irritable with the iodine. Not sure yet. I'll try taking only one a day away from food.

I've been taking the Fucus Plus away from food to alleviate an excessive earwax accumulation in my right ear.  So far it has been working so well that I'll probably cancel my appointment with an ENT doctor at the end of this month.

Elaine, do you take one dose or two per day? I find your use of fucus intriguing.

I am convinced that one dose twice a day gave me twice the daily amount of daily recommended iodine and made me WAY too moody. Yesterday I cut back to taking one dose per day away from food.

Mystic:  I just sent you a private message regarding my specialized needs, due to my hereditary condition in which my ear wax does not distribute correctly on its own.

I had been taking 50 mcg of thyroid medication (Levothyroxine) for many years.

But I wanted to switch to Fucus Plus and get off of Rx drugs.

I started two caps of Fucus Plus in March and lowered that dose to one cap over six weeks ago.

My TSH test results last week was 4.7 with a range of 2 - 6.

This is such great news. No more Levothyroxine. Fucus Plus IS working!

Thanks Dr D!!! (woot)
