As we discussed in our previous blog post, sea moss is chock full of essential nutrients, containing 92 of the 102 the body needs. Loaded full of vitamins and minerals, sea moss will typically contain high amounts of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphate, iodine, folate, potassium, sodium, copper, folate, boron, manganese, phosphoric acid, selenium, nitrogen and vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K.
Our Full Spectrum Wildcrafted Sea Moss is harvested from the serene blue waters off the coast of Zanzibar, plucked from the floor of the Indian Ocean. Being full spectrum, the nutritional contents from both the golden and purple sea moss are available, giving you the maximum yield of nutrients as possible.
5 Health Benefits of Sea Moss:
1.Boost Natural Immunity
A weak immune system is often due to depletion of minerals and essential nutrients in the body. As we know, the body needs 102 trace elements to be balanced correctly to function. Full spectrum sea moss contains 92 of these trace elements. As various elements become depleted, inflammations will occur which lead to malfunctions within the body, making it difficult to defend itself against infections. Keeping optimum levels of vitamins and minerals builds and bolsters your natural defence mechanism. Protecting your body and preventing illness is the cornerstone of health, so building up a vigorous immune system is a good place to start!
2. Thyroid Health
Due to the high levels of both iodine and selenium in sea moss, studies show that consumption can help to improve the function of the thyroid gland. Many suffer from thyroid disorders due to insufficient iodine levels. The thyroid gland sits in the neck and produces and releases two hormones, triiodothyronine and thyroxine. These hormones play a significant role in regulating sleep cycles, menstrual cycle, controlling levels of cholesterol, libido and even mood. An inactive or overactive thyroid gland can lead to problems such as fatigue, dramatic weight gain/loss, muscle pain and sexual dysfunction.
3. Gut Health
Sea Moss is a great source of live bacterias and fibres which support a healthy microbiome in the gut and aids with digestion. Many are familiar with the importance of pro-biotics for digestive health. Pro-biotics are a healthy digestive bacteria that help to break down foods in the gut. However, not many are familiar with pre-biotics. Pre-biotics are fibres which the human body cannot digest. They pass through the gut taking excess waste with it whilst also acting as a source of food for the pro-biotics. This relationship between the two increases the good bacteria in the gut which improves digestive function.
4. Healthy Skin
Sea Moss can be prepared in many ways, and doesn't have to be ingested. It is often soaked and blended into a gel which can be applied directly to the skin, much like a face mask. Sea moss gel is a very popular way to hydrate the skin, reduce inflammations of various skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, stretch marks, wrinkles, scars and burns. The bioavailability can be easily drawn straight into the skin, allowing an onslaught of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to be absorbed subcutaneously into the skin.
Anti-ageing specialist, Dr David Jack has this to say about the use of sea moss on the skin.
"Sea moss is a bit of a skincare powerhouse, being rich in sulfur, it has antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial functions, so is believed to help with balancing the skin microbiome."
5. Bone Strength
One of the most acclaimed benefits of sea moss according to Dr Sebi was the ability to increase bone strength. He famously demonstrated this by dropping to his knees while giving a lecture at the age of 81 in 2015. Sea moss is packed full of both vitamin D and calcium which both play an important role in building and maintaining skeleton strength. The body can store about 1kg of calcium and 99% of it is stored in the bones which increases bone density and hardness. Vitamin D helps the bones to absorb calcium. Calcium deficiency (hypocalcemia) can lead to skeletal issue such as osteoporosis, arthritis, tooth decay and muscular fatigue.
