4 reasons you should include seaweed in your diet
Seaweed isn't a usual staple ingredient of the Western diet, but it probably should be. Eating seaweed regularly has been shown to provide a wide range of health benefits. Here are just a few of the reasons you should keep seaweed in mind when planning your meals:
- It can help with weight loss. Once consumed, seaweed's soluble fibers form a gel that slows digestion and helps to control appetite. Moreover, seaweed can actually prevent up to 75 percent of the fat you consume from being absorbed by the bloodstream, according to a University of Newcastle study.
- It gives you beautiful skin. Seaweed has anti-inflammatory properties that can decrease the appearance of skin conditions like acne and rosacea, while its antioxidants help to defend the skin against aging-related damage.
- It's packed with omega-3s. If you're in search of a reliable source of omega-3 fatty acids that packs as much punch in a single serving as two whole avocados, seaweed is what you've been looking for.
- It provides a stable source of iodine. With fewer people using iodized table salt, preferring to opt for the more upscale varieties of salt that don't undergo the iodization process, iodine deficiency is becoming a real risk. Especially if you're pregnant, it's important to get the recommended amount of iodine.
