Full Biofilam Product Description
BIOFILAM® (formally, "Modifilan") is the world's best and original giant brown kelp (Laminaria japonica) extract. Be aware that many other companies are now selling kelp powder and referring to it as "kelp extract". Typically it's just ground up dried kelp. No extraction is involved. True kelp "extract" like BIOFILAM® has gone through a patented extraction and low-temperature drying process. The hard to digest cellulose has been removed, so you end up with a concentrated extract of the good stuff. Don't fall for deceptive marketing tactics, and don't mistake regular kelp products for BIOFILAM®.

Giant Kelp — Laminaria Japonica
The powers of seaweeds have been drawn upon for centuries for their ability to prolong life, prevent disease, impart beauty and health. Worldwide research is continuously being done and brown seaweed has been found to be the most beneficial type. The soft inner part of the brown seaweed is squeezed out of the leaves and made into dry powder using a simple cold-temperature extraction process that retains the important organic elements. When taken with plenty of water, our natural products deliver all of the naturally occurring minerals and vitamins of Laminaria japonica in a soluble, bio-available form that is easily digestible.
This seaweed is harvested from the Kuril Islands, where it grows the largest. Here the cold water flowing down from the Arctic meets the warm water from the south in a great swirl that forms the best habitat for all types of seafood, from the smallest shrimp to the largest whales. Our divers bring the seaweed to shore, where the huge Laminaria japonica leaves are hung across wooden fences to quickly dry in the sun in the traditional Japanese way. The seaweed is then transported to a plant where it is soaked in fresh water, which is retained so as not to lose the water-soluble polysaccharides. Within about eight hours the leaves return to their original size and the outer skin can be removed. All the heavy fivers are disposed of, and the remaining inner part is ground up. The resulting thick, rubbery substance is dried in a vacuum chamber without using heat so as not to lose any of the original nutrients. The benefits of brown seaweed have been known for centuries past by those cultures who use it. Our brown seaweed products are produced exclusively from the Laminaria japonica species. This species contains high levels of:
ALGINATES - are extremely effective organic elements that assist the body with detoxification.
ORGANIC IODINE - can boost the immune system and help support a healthy Thyroid gland which controls metabolism and can therefore assist with weight loss.
FUCOIDAN - can eliminate harmful cells, such as cancerous cells from the body.
LAMINARIN - A polysaccharide which can help in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
Today, Fucoidan is the subject of more than 600 unsolicited, independent, third-party scientific studies that all validate its astonishing life-sustaining, immune-supporting properties. It's hailed in such reputable medical journals as:
- Anticancer Research
- Infection and Immunity
- The British Journal of Pharmacology
- Nutrition and Cancer
- Developmental Biology
- The Journal of Molecular Immunology
- Journal of Neuroimmunology
- Antibiotics and Chemotherapy
- Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research
Working on both a cellular and sub-cellular level, FUCOIDAN boasts an almost endless list of health benefits. Based on the research, FUCOIDAN may just be the most powerful immune-supporting nutrient ever discovered!
BIOFILAM is not just a regular dried seaweed product. It is a highly concentrated and specialised extract of kelp (Laminaria japonica). Forty five pounds of raw seaweed goes into making just one pound of BIOFILAM. Basically, a 5 gram teaspoon of powder is like eating 1/4 kilogram of raw kelp. That's around an entire plateful of super-healthy seaweed in one small spoon!
Where is the kelp harvested?
Our brown seaweed is harvested from the clean, pristine waters of the Northern Pacific Ocean, around the Kuril Islands. Every batch is tested for impurities such as heavy metals and radioactive isotopes to ensure its purity.
Why is Biofilam (Laminaria japonica) so unique and beneficial?
Patented low-temperature drying
The low-temperature processing of BIOFILAM causes sloughing off of the heavy outer fibers of the seaweed, while retaining the essential properties of the plant. This process further enhances its bio-availability, making the Laminaria more digestible. Forty five pounds of raw Laminaria are required to make one pound of BIOFILAM. Eating 8 capsules of extract a day provides the same amount of good, organic micro- and macro-elements contained in entire plate of this nutrient-rich seaweed. And, it is not cooked.
The oldest Japanese recipes of preparing seaweed tell us to eat seaweed raw, rather than cooked. Modern science affirms that an anti-cancer substance called Fucoidan, as well as beneficial polysaccharides, will break down if the seaweed is cooked. This was determined when studies were performed on the Japanese island Okinawa, known for its lowest cancer death rate in Japan.
Powerful Heavy Metal & Radioactive Isotope Detoxifier
The combination of active ingredients in Laminaria Japonica make it an extremely effective detoxifier of heavy metals and radioactive elements. Together, these ingredients are ideal absorbers of toxins because they bond with these contaminants and promote their disposal outside the body.
The toxins that we absorb from our environment can be linked with many diseases. For example, it is suspected that an accumulation of excess aluminum may contribute to a brain deterioration known as Alzheimer's disease. Radioactive particles from nuclear fallout, inadequate nuclear waste disposal, and from the disaster at Chernobyl and more recently Fukushima, can contribute to cellular distortion, leukemia and other forms of cancer, birth defects, anemia and other diseases.
The natural substances found in Laminaria Japonica were first used in Chernobyl to treat victims of radioactive fallout with great success. Today research and testing is continuously done all over the world, confirming the beneficial nutritional and medical uses of brown seaweed. In fact, more and more beneficial uses for it are being discovered. It can protect against Thyroid cancer and other cancers, help decrease high blood sugar and cholesterol levels. It can detoxify the body from radioactive elements and other bio-chemical pollutants, over-processed foods infused with unnatural chemicals as well as the affects from use of drugs and alcohol. It can help with negative affects of poor nutrition and an unbalanced diet, weight loss, hair and nail growth, and much more.
BIOFILAM vs Modifilan?
It is important to note that prior to 2008 BIOFILAM® was known as Modifilan®. I After extensive investigation into the matter (since we used to sell and use Modifilan), it is our understanding that after a disagreement, the US trademarks where taken by the (then) US distributor of (pre-2008) Modifilan. This meant the creators of the product had to rebrand it, and now use the name BIOFILAM®.
BIOFILAM® is the original Russian patented inner gel extract of Laminaria japonica (Japanese kelp / Kombu). BIOFILAM® (originally, "MODIFIed LAMInaria", or "MODIFI-LAN") was developed and named in Russia by Russian scientist Maslyokov Yuri Pavlovich in 1991 (PATENT RU# 2030885 and RU# 2019981). He worked in the State Rehabilitation Institute, where victims of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe underwent treatment. The healing qualities of seaweed had been known for centuries, so the Russian government instructed scientists to find an effective and powerful remedy for the radiation poisoning of that particular population. After trying out various forms of algae, one type yielded the best scientific data for this purpose. It was the brown seaweed known as Laminaria japonica, which grows wild in the northern Pacific Ocean off the coast of uninhabited seashore far to the east of Russia (in the Kuril islands).
I have been working with Biofilam (previously called Modifilan) since 2003. I've provided it to many hundreds of clients in my traditional naturopathy practice, and have been using it myself (off and on) since that time (so nearly 20 years, as of late 2022).
Biofilam is a rich source of natural iodine (vitally important for optimum health) and the entire spectrum of bio-available minerals and trace elements, most of which are seriously lacking in most agricultural soils and, therefore, in our land based food products.
Biofilam is the #1 natural, organic, cold-processed super-food I recommend to people I care about. In fact, the original reason I up this site in 2010 was so my friends, family, and clients could benefit from this powerful health-promoting product in a low-cost bulk capsule and powder form. Some years later I opened the site up to the general public, so that anyone could access these benefits.
My opinion? Add Biofilam to your diet, and reap the rewards.
I recommend using this product in powder form, so that you can hydrate it in water before you take it. But that only works if you don't mind the taste. Experience shows me at least 80% of people are fine with drinking this as a powder in water. The other 15 to 20% find ocean based products hard to stomach, in which case it's better to first try taking it in a smoothie, or, if that isn't to your liking then take it in capsules. This product is from Russia, where it was always used as a powder. It only started to be encapsulated in order to accommodate the palate of the people in America, most of whom are not accustomed to raw, natural, oceanic vegetable products.
You can either buy bulk capsules from me (I sometimes have them for sale ... join the back in stock notification if I don't), or you can encapsulate it yourself. It's quite an easy and meditative process filling capsules. I'd suggest getting "The Capsule Machine" from Capsule Connection. You can get gelatine and vegetable based capsules from there too. Or look online for other options.

Your purchase of Biofilam from Inspired Nutritionals has a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
I've been making this incredible product (patented, cold processed kelp—Laminaria japonica—extract powder) available to friends, family, and clients since around 2003. I set up this website in 2010 to make it accessible to anyone in North America (and many other countries) who has access to the Internet. That includes people who don't otherwise know me personally. That's a bit of a risk for me, because kelp extract has a unique taste. It's oceanic. It's raw. It's natural. It's unadulterated. It has nothing in it to change its flavor or to trick your tastebuds into liking it. Simply put, when it comes to ancient healing ocean sea vegetables this is the real deal. I've found around 15% to 20% of people have a hard time with the taste of this product. I've found nearly all those people were fine when they mixed it into something to mask the flavour. And a small number of those people found the best option was to encapsulate it.
So here's my sincere offer to you ...
Be mindful that kelp concentrate is, well, concentrated. It has a strong taste. Personally, I love it. But it's not everyone's favorite flavour. So think of it as medicine. And if you have a hard time with the taste, make an effort to help the medicine go down. Mix it into a smoothie and mask the taste. Or whatever it takes. I know, without a trace of doubt, your body will love you for it. And ...
... If after really giving this wonderful food from our Mother Earth your best shot—after using it for at least three week—you feel it wasn't worth the money you spent on it, you're welcome to ask for a refund. Send back what you've not used, and I'll refund your full purchase amount (less any shipping costs). No questions asked.
