Seaweeds or macroalgae have been a source of food, feed and medicine in the orient as well as the West since ancient times. Being plants of unique structure and biochemical composition, seaweeds could be exploited for their multifunctional properties. They are sources of useful bioactive components like phycocolloids, proteins, vitamins,minerals, carotenoids like fucoxanthin and n3 fatty acids, which are known to possess nutritional value apart from their potential biomedical applications. The present review highlights the various bioactive materials of seaweed origin and their potential applications.
