Brown seaweeds are a rich source of phlorotannins, a characteristic class of polyphenols which are unique to seaweeds of this type and can comprise 5 to 15 % of the dried weight. Unlike other classes of polyphenols, there is a lack of knowledge regarding phlorotannins and their bioavailability and bioactivity. The purpose of this study is to investigate the absorption and metabolism of seaweed polyphenols in humans. As part of an EC project (SWAFAX), an acute clinical intervention will be conducted to investigate the metabolism/ bioavailability of brown seaweed phlorotannins. Urine and plasma samples from 24 healthy volunteers that consumed a seaweed capsule containing polyphenols will be collected before and after the intervention. Data emanating from this project will provide strong scientific evidence for bioavailability and health promoting activity of a seaweed polyphenol extract in human volunteers.

A dehydrated extract of thyroid glands. After the removal of fat and connective tissue, the extract is dried or lyophilized to yield a yellowish to buff-colored amorphous powder containing 0.17-0.23% of iodine.
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
