Take it back, Unfortunately, seaweeds can have multiple common names, and you do indeed want "Fucus vesiculosis".
You can sometimes block the effects of wheat germ lectin in type O by using an amino sugar called "N-acetyl glucosamine". This glycoprotein will act as a decoy and flood the lectin receptors of wheat germ agglutinin, rendering it unable to glom onto you. It is available in health food stores and is safe and not expensive. Take 1-2 caps after a particularly bad meal.
PS: No substitute for avoidance!
