July 15, 2020

Seaweed or sea vegetables are nutritious algae types, growing in the oceans around the world. 

Mostly consumed in Asian cuisine, it's becoming ultra-popular in the Western world thanks to the medicinal properties.  

Seaweed's color varies between green, dark red, and brown, and it's the perfect addition to soups, salads, sushi rolls, and stews. 

Improves Thyroid Function

Seaweed contains loads of iodine, a crucial mineral that helps the thyroid gland work properly. It also has a lot of tyrosine, an amino acid that controls the production of Thyroid gland hormones. 

Vitamin and Mineral Power Station 

All varieties of seaweed contain plenty of vitamins and minerals, especially when dried. With regular consumption of this gift of the sea, you will boost your body with iron, thiamine, manganese, copper, riboflavin, fiber, proteins, and traces of fats and carbs. 

Powerful Antioxidant 

Seaweed has a lot of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as flavonoids and carotenoids, all working as antioxidants and preventing cell damage. Fucoxanthin is the most powerful among the carotenoids, protecting the cell membranes even more efficiently than vitamin A.   

Promoting Gut Health

The high levels of fiber in seaweed promote a healthy gut and proper functioning of your intestines. It also helps the production of good gut bacteria.  

Weight Loss Properties

Thanks to the low-calorie fiber, seaweed creates a feeling of fullness and prevents you from stuffing your stomach with unnecessary food, thus lead to reduced body weight. 

Reducing Heart Disease Risk 

Seaweed contains fucans (carbohydrates) that stop the blood from clotting and reduces blood cholesterol levels. By doing so, seaweed lowers the risk of possible heart disease. 

Unless you leave next to a sea, consider implementing seaweed into your daily diet, as it is the best iodine-rich food ever.
