3 ways to incorporate seaweed in your New Year’s resolution
As we approach the end of the year, it's time to reflect on all the health choices we've made this year and how we'll take action going forward. If you're looking for a New Year's resolution that will improve your health, taking advantage of the diverse benefits of seaweed is a great place to start. Here are some ways you can include this superfood in your resolution for 2016:
- Using seaweed as a salt replacement. A lot of the food we consume has way too much sodium in it. This causes health problems like high blood pressure and heart disease. For your New Year's resolution of reducing sodium, you can start using seaweed as a salt replacement. For instance, Seagreens Salt Replacement has half the sodium content of regular table salt but can still add a lot of flavor to your dish. Cooking with seaweed as a salt replacement can help reduce the risk of conditions associated with the over-consumption of sodium.
- Getting more iodine in your diet. Iodine deficiencies are extremely troubling, and they're more common than you may possibly realize. Because your body doesn't synthesize iodine, you need to make sure you get enough of it from your diet. Research at Glasgow University coordinated by the Seaweed Health Foundation showed that granules of Seagreens can improve iodine levels women with iodine deficiencies without any adverse effects on thyroid function.
- Coming up with a better long-term weight management plan. A lot of people resolve to diet in the new year but few actually follow through. According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, only 20 percent of dieters are actually successful. For your resolution, you can create a plan that will work for longer term weight management solutions by adding seaweed to your diet. In a study by the Centre for Food Innovation at Sheffield Hallam University, overweight men who consumed Seagreens seaweed in their breakfasts each morning ate fewer calories throughout the day which helped them lose weight.
