About Sea Health Plus

Manufactured by Sea Health Plus, Ocean’s Bounty is a daily nutritional supplement containing marine seaweed and minerals that are claimed to provide an astounding number of benefits, including:

  • Help you beat sugar addiction.
  • Boost your immune system.
  • “Restore the youth you had decades ago.”
  • Reduce your LDL cholesterol.
  • Increase your energy and productivity.
  • Balance “slimming hormones.”
  • Help your body heal itself.
  • Improve cell communication.

Whew! On top of all this, Sea Health Plus claims that these benefits are backed by scientific studies (which we’ll talk more about in a moment), and that you can experience the same by taking 2 capsules on an empty stomach, twice daily, for at least 60 days. Despite all of these benefits though, Ocean’s Bounty is claimed to be as safe as a multi-vitamin.

To be perfectly honest, when we first encountered Ocean’s Bounty by Sea Health Plus, we thought it sounded like some kind of wonder drug. Lower cholesterol? Check. Ease joint pain? Double check. Prevent aging and increase energy? Check-a-roonie.

But when reality strikes (as it inevitably does), is Ocean’s Bounty all it’s cracked up to be, or is it all washed up? Consider the following:

Who Is Sea Health Plus?

According to the Sea Health Plus website (URL registered in August 2014), they are a “unique team of health and industry professionals dedicated to unlocking the secrets of happier living through a healthier body,” and are based out of Centennial, CO. However, other than the primary website for Ocean’s Plus, there isn’t any additional information available about the company online, and they’re not listed with the Better Business Bureau.

What Ingredients Does Ocean’s Bounty Contain?

Unfortunately, Sea Health Plus doesn’t provide an ingredients list or product label for Ocean’s Bounty, although Best Multivitamins Guide claimed it contains fucoidan and seanol, along with “over 70 nutrients that are not normally found in the American diet.”

Fucoidan is “a sulfated polysaccharide (MW: average 20,000) found mainly in various species of brown algae and brown seaweed such as mozuku, kombu, bladderwrack, wakame, and hijiki.” According to Greatist though, seaweed “isn’t a realistic source of many vitamins, and its benefits can occasionally be exaggerated.” It does contain vitamins A and C, as well as calcium, although it’s “best-known benefit is that it is an extraordinary source of a nutrient missing in almost every other food: iodine.”

Iodine can be effective for treating a number of conditions, including excessive thyroid activity, some types of radiation exposure, iodine deficiency, and some types of infections. However, iodine supplementation will not provide anything close to the benefits claimed by Sea Health Plus.

Seanol is a proprietary ingredient made of Ecklonia Cava (brown algae), which contains a variety of antioxidants claimed to treat cancer, inflammation, immune system issues, and more. However, there is insufficient clinical evidence showing that brown algae is effective for any of these.

Is Ocean’s Bounty by Sea Health Plus Backed by Scientific Studies?

Searching for fucoidan on the NIH website returns more than 1,200 clinical studies (as of 2/6/15), referencing everything from cancer, diabetes, and inflammation to immune system and high blood pressure. Many of these studies were completed just over the past few years, so while fucoidan appears to be a promising treatment for some conditions, there remains insufficient evidence showing exactly how and when the supplement will be most useful.

Note: In addition to looking at clinical evidence, there are several other pointers you should keep in mind when purchasing your next nutritional supplement.

Mind the Arbitration Agreement

Finally, keep in mind that by placing your Ocean’s Bounty order on the Sea Health Plus website, you’ll be submitting to an arbitration agreement. Among other things, this will essentially eliminate your ability to take the company to court or to become part of a class action lawsuit if damages are incurred.

Ocean’s Bounty Pricing & Refund Policy

Ocean’s Bounty from Sea Health Plus is available in 3 different purchasing options (including free shipping):

  • 1 Bottle: $69.95
  • 2 Bottles: $119.90
  • 4 Bottles: $199.80

Keep in mind that each bottle of Ocean’s Bounty only contains 60 capsules. This means if you were to take the dosage recommended by the manufacturer (4 capsules per day), each bottle only contains 15 days worth of capsules. Because of this, even if you ordered 4 bottles, you’d only be getting a 60-day supply.

Important note: Just below the Sea Health Plus order form, you’ll see a checkbox with the words “Membership Discount Club” next to it. Unless you want to continue receiving 4 bottles of Ocean’s Bounty every 4 months, and your credit card to be charged $179.82 each time, be sure to uncheck this box.

Sea Health Plus provides a 90-day refund policy for Ocean’s Bounty, less S&H charges. Interestingly, the company claims to “refund 100% of your purchase price, plus $10 for giving it a shot.” However, if you carefully review their Terms, they will charge a $10 restocking fee for all returns, so this ultimately washes out. And in our opinion, it’s simply deceptive advertising.

With this said, if you’d like to request a refund or to cancel your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to contact customer service at (800) 287-9221 for an RMA.

Will Ocean’s Bounty from Sea Health Plus Help You Achieve Wellness?

Chopping to the point: With the West’s recent infatuation with superfoods, plants such as seaweed—and their close cousins, algae—which contain high doses of essential vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants, have come under close scrutiny. And as we can see from the increasingly popular clinical research available for fucoidan, they may hold some promise for improving our health.

However, while this may change in the very near future, Sea Heath Plus’s gargantuan claims about the benefits related to Ocean’s Bounty are out of line with the available evidence. This, in addition to the supplement’s fairly high price, leads us to the opinion that you might not experience benefits in line with what you’ll pay.

    Junk

    I purchased this product with the understanding that I could cancel at any time. I received the product and began using as directed. I developed indigestion and reflux almost immediately. I spoke to my doc during my annual exam the following week and he said that I should stop taking it and see if the symptoms stopped. They did. I called Oceans Bounty and cancelled the order. About 2 weeks later, I received a "courtesy" call to let me know that my 3 month supply had shipped. I told the caller that I had cancelled and he said he did not have that information, that he was calling from another department. I asked for the number to call to fix this and he gave me a number. I called the number (I had confirmed with the caller the number) and was put on hold. 20 minutes later, I hung up and called back. I told the person that I did not want to hold but was told I would need to hold while the correct person was put on. I held again for about 10 minutes and hung up again. I called my credit card company and disputed the charges and I sent the pills back when they arrived 5 days later. These people are no good at customer service.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Blood Pressure Stabilizer

    I have been taking this product for about two months. I started it hoping it would help my blood pressure and found that it was useless. As a matter of fact I was recently hospitalized for my blood pressure as it went to 210 over 99. This product was completely ineffective in treating my blood pressure.

    Works for me

    • New South Wales,
    • May 24, 2016

    I've been taking between 2-4 tablets per day for 2 months. I've had chronic diarrhea for almost 10 years. Was diagnosed with Blastocystis Hominis back then and did the usual med checks (invasive) and spent thousands of dollars on compound medicines.

    After taking the above mentioned doses my stools are getting firmer for the first time in almost 10 years.

    Scam or not, it appears the ONLY thing that works for me. I'm about to order my next lot, it's cheaper than what I've spent in the past.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Scam

    • Alberta, Canada,
    • Sep 25, 2015

    I just got a call from these folks saying that they were processing another order that I don't want. I asked to cancel and the fellow gave me the customer service number. As it turns out the number he gave me is the same number that he was calling from. I didn't realize it at first and called the number which went immediately to the message that says “Push no. 1 to continue” then the call went blank. I'm assuming that by pushing number one that I just reordered the junk that I don't want.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Scammed again?

    • LaMarque, Texas,
    • Jul 18, 2015

    I purchased 8 bottles of their Brow Seaweed Extract, in capsule form. When I purchased it I was given a price of $199.80 for my total order, but when I received my bill from my credit card company they had charged me TWICE. Once for the aforementioned price & then again for another $239.70. I called the number listed for them, and they refused to refund either of the amounts that they had charged to my credit card. I like their product, but their billing tactics need a lot of refining.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Vinnie

    I bought four bottles of Oceans Bounty 3 months back and I still have one full bottle as I was too cheap to take four a day. I notice on my bottle the MFC IS 09/14. I tried one here to see how long a bottle is good for. Looks like if it is as good as they say, the bottles should not be six months old when I got them! I thought at first taking 1-2 pills a day it help.

    A week ago I started taking 4 per day. I am a boarder line diabetic. I don't have the kind of money to order from them again. Sorry that my review is not a good one as I did take 4 pills a day. I spent an hour lessening about this product. They really make it sound like it is close to God.

    It's 5 in the morning and my blood sugar tested 108. I'm trying to get it down below 100 again. And may be the Cinnamon pills and omega-3 krill oil in addition to long walks, keeping busy, and trying to eat the right foods is what's also helping.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      If your "review is not a good one" and you wouldn't recommend it, why would you give it a 3 stars?

    Typical spam scam.

    • South Carolina,
    • Jun 5, 2015

    I received an unsolicited email spam from this company which I usually mark as spam and delete. However, the title talked about blood sugar and I bit; that was a mistake. I listened to the nonsense claims for several minutes and short of making you 40 years younger, they claimed to cure diabetes, improve all aspects of your health and on and on with the hype. As I tried to stop the scam presentation, their software would not let me delete or leave their page. It kept coming back to my screen. After 6 or 7 times of trying to leave this website I finally got free. This really torqued me off. If I want to leave a website, I do not want the site to keep popping back on my screen. This and the other reviews I read about one bottle costing $69 for 60 capsules. The requirement of taking four a day means you will spend $138 for 30 days plus shipping, and handling. Also like all info ads heard on radio and TV these days, once they get your card number they start the auto bill  process which means you have to chase down their customer service people to stop the billing.

    Bottom line, if a company has a product, any product that claims to cure you of a multitude of problems and they want your card number, don't do it. If you blindly play with rattle snakes you will be bitten.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
