Bladderwrack without The Alcohol


QUESTION

Where and how does one find bladderwrack without the alcohol based herbal tinctures. I am unable to locate another more suitable form.


ANSWER

As I have said, commercial health food store tinctures of bladderwrack are ineffective because the active ingredient, the sugar fucose, is not alcohol soluable.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
