From the depths of the crystalline waters in the South Pacific, through a proprietary, chemical-free extraction process, LIMU harvests Fucoidan – the seaweed supernutrient and main ingredient in all LIMU products. It powers the LIMU Experience and is the driving force in our Promoters’ success.

Today he’s credited with pioneering a unique network marketing company with a culture of shared motivation, inspiration and transformation – a company unlike any other. This is our story.
