The Seaweed in Health and Disease Prevention (PDF) document explores the prospective use of seaweed, macroalgae, and the extracts of these organisms for the treatment and prevention of illness. This book examines the possibilities in a comprehensive manner, outlining how seaweed can be used as a source of both micronutrients and macronutrients, in addition to nutraceuticals. The book also examines the potential for seaweed to be used as a source of bioactive compounds. The annual growth in economic value of seaweed harvested for human use is reflected in the fact that certain countries gather hundreds of thousands of tons of seaweed each year. This text discusses the characteristics and outcomes of seaweeds as well as their applications in the food industry. It provides an all-encompassing perspective on the capacity of seaweed to affect or have an effect on angiogenesis, tumors, diabetes and glucose management, fungal infections, oxidative stress, irritation and infection, the intestine, and the liver.
