The wide range of biological activities associated with natural compounds derived from marine algae such as phlorotannins, alginates, sulfated polysaccharides, and carotenoids have potential to expand its nutritional and health beneficial values of marine algae in food industries. Further, the wide diversity of marine algae and numerous undiscovered unique metabolites present in marine algae are interesting sources to increase numbers of novel functional foods, which is beneficial for female health, beauty, and longevity. Accordingly, possibilities of designing new medicinal foods or nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals derived from marine algae are promising. However, clinical trials are needed to confirm anticancer, antiviral, antiosteoporosis, and antiobesity activity of marine algae. In addition, further research studies are needed in order to investigate marine algae activities in female subjects.
