More amazing health benefits of seaweed
Seaweed nutrients are often underrated and under-considered, but they can offer a surprising amount of minerals and vitamins for rounding out a more balanced, healthy diet.
Here are some of the nutritional benefits that seaweed has to offer:
- Antioxidants: Seaweed is packed with antioxidants, which clean and detoxify the blood and body, containing a virtually complete balance of nutrients. Independent research from Sheffield Hallam University has shown that Seagreens products are even higher in antioxidants than green tea!
- Heart health: Studies on animals have confirmed a correlation between seaweed consumption and lowered blood pressure and cholesterol. Although studies have not been done on humans, it does appear that communities that eat more seaweed experience less heart disease. "A 25-year study of the longest-lived population, the Okinawans," reported The Guardian, "who have unfurry arteries, low cholesterol and low homocysteine (a heart-damaging chemical) levels, showed that sea vegetables were among the seven to 10 portions of fruit and vegetables they eat daily." This strongly suggests that eating organic seaweed correlates with improved heart health.
- Potential for cancer prevention: Certain seaweeds contain a wide range of minerals and polysaccharides, which are known to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Populations in Japan, who eat more seaweed than any other nation, boast exceedingly low rates of breast cancer, and some theorize that seaweed plays a role in this.
Seagreens contains all the minerals, micronutrients, trace elements and vitamins.
