You may have been hearing a lot about Sea Moss lately and about the health benefits it provides. Sea Moss, also known as Irish Moss, has been used for generations for its medicinal properties. Now this super food is finding its way to a mainstream audience.
Sea Moss is a type of red algae (seaweed) found along the coastlines of Europe, North America and the Caribbean. Containing over 90 vitamins and minerals that help sustain a healthy body and mind, its benefits run the gamut from boosting your immune system to firmer skin.
Here are just a few of the benefits of Sea Moss:
Bolstered Immune Systems
One of the greatest benefits any supplement can provide is building our immune system,
thus keeping us truly healthy. Sea Moss contains potassium chloride, which has immune boosting properties that helps protect you from cold and flu viruses. And just in case you do happen to come down with something, potassium chloride can help minimize the symptoms and break up the congestion caused by the cold and flu making you more likely to clear up sooner. Sea Moss is also a major provider of other elements that enhance our immune system, including amino acids, vitamin C, antioxidants, and zinc, all providing ammunition to fight off sickness.
Post Workout Recovery
Needing to replenish your body after a workout session? Adding a Sea Moss-infused juice or smoothie to your post-workout routine might not only build muscles, but make your body stronger. That’s thanks to its B vitamins, increasing energy and creating building blocks to enhance cell function. Riboflavin (B2) breaks down food, folate (B9), actually helps form genetic material like DNA, and a folate/B12 combo helps create red blood cells.
Promotes Weight Loss
Sea Moss contains fiber, which absorbs the body’s water so you feel fuller sooner than the 20 minutes it usually takes for your brain to process hormone signals. When you feel full, you could slow eating and take in less calories.
Firmer & Healthier Skin
Studies indicate a compound in Sea Moss, citrulline-arginine, releases amino acids that spur protein and collagen synthesis. Collagen is touted for its role in hair and especially skin health. Studies show that increased intake of collagen promotes elasticity and firmness of the skin and reduce wrinkles and dryness.
Osteoporosis, aka bone loss, is critical to recognize and guard against all lifelong. Many people think of it as just an “old person’s condition” but the body actually starts losing bone density when we’re in our 20s. So it’s always good to start protecting against that loss ASAP. Sea Moss helps because it is rich in two key nutrients: One is calcium and the other is vitamin K, which experts call, “the nutrient the body needs to stay healthy.”
Whether your goal is supporting a healthy immune system, improving vitality, or promoting the growth of skin, hair, and nails, adding Sea Moss to your daily regimen will have your body thanking you.
