Fucoxanthin is a type of carotenoid (xanthophyll) with the formula C42H58O6 and occurs naturally in edible brown seaweed and to a lesser degree in red and green seaweed as well. It is found as an accessory pigment in the chloroplasts, which accounts for their brown or olive-green color.
Fucoxanthin is the subject of many clinical studies looking into potential effects on metabolism, energy expenditure, blood pressure, serum lipid levels and liver enzymes. Other studies are studying potential anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, and anti-cancer properties.
