Independent Laboratory Analysis:
Over 1000% More Fucoidan in Original Limu™ than Closest Rival!
Original Limu from The Limu Company is without a doubt the hottest nutritional
product on the market today.
It contains a nutrient called fucoidan, a sulfated polysaccharide cited in more than 600 scientific
studies in the US National Library of Medicine's database. Experts believe that fucoidan is at the heart of why tens of thousands of consumers are experiencing such amazing
benefits with Original Limu.
But whenever a blockbuster nutritional product hits the market it's not long before the poor imitations start crawling
out of the woodwork!
So which brand of Limu is superior?
Check out the results of a 2004 independent laboratory analysis of the two most popular brands and you will be utterly and entirely shocked! The analysis showed that Original
Limu contained not just double the amount of fucoidan... not just five times the amount of fucoidan... but a whopping
2800% more fucoidan than the look-alike product!
In 2005, the company making the look-alike changed their name and claimed that they had doubled the amount of limu moui
(seaweed that contains fucoidan) in the product. However, this would still mean that Original Limu™ contains over
1000% more fucoidan than the look-alike product!
This is nothing short of scandalous and totally blows the lid off any controversy about which brand
of Limu is best!
Lab Analysis Letter
Advice to Consumers
Original Limu is the only product in the world that contains a proprietary, time-proven, fucoidan-rich
liquid Tongan Limu Moui extract that took over 15 years to perfect.
So don't be fooled by poor imitations. You simply cannot find this uniquely beneficial extract in any other product
except Original Limu™... period!
Here is the exact text of the 2004 lab analysis letter stating that Original Limu™ contained over 2500% more fucoidan
than the look-alike product. A PDF format version of the original document (64kb) is also available for download. Additionally, you may wish to read some very enlightening comments about the validity of the analysis method used by the independent testing laboratory.

Mr. Gary J. Raser, President,
The Limu Company,
610 Crescent Executive Court, Suite 110,
Lake Mary, Florida 32746,
Dear Mr. Raser,
Molab Ltd. was engaged by The Limu Company via [name deleted intentionally], their manufacturer of Limu Extract,
to examine the comparative Fucoidan contents of its Original Limu product and compare it to Vita Corp's Limu Plus. The results
of the laboratory analysis are summarized below.
The examination was carried out on samples drawn by Molab from unopened bottles of the following products:
- Sample (1) Original Limu
- Sample (2) Limu Plus
|(1) Original Limu
||0.14 gms/100 mls|
|(2) Limu Plus
||0.005 gms/100 mls|
- (1) Original Limu
- This product contained a large number of broken spirulina spirals. On staining with selective stain soluble material giving
the same reaction as fucoidan was precipitated.
- (2) Limu Plus
- No insoluble material which could be identified as seaweed cellular matter by morphology was found. With selective staining
a few rare particles which gave the same staining reaction as fucoidan were found. These appeared to be irregularly shaped
broken fragments of insoluble material.
The microscopic examination confirms the fucoidan analyses.
- The analysis indicates that the Original Limu has a fucoidan content in excess of twenty-five times that of the Limu Plus.
- The microscopic examination indicates that the sulphated polysaccharide present in the Limu Plus sample is in an insoluble
form and hence would be of a much lower bioavailability.
The test procedure used, Methylene Blue precipitation, is one of the standard methods used for specifically determining sulphated polysaccharides,
in this case Fucoidan. The procedure is used by Molab for seaweed extracts and seaweed products.
