Seagreens: One of the best organic sources of antioxidants
Recently we shared with you a new study out of Newcastle University in the United Kingdom, that directly compared the nutritional value — specifically, the antioxidant and phenol content — of organic and conventional produce. While it's no secret that organic crops are healthier than those that are conventionally grown, this new research found that organic produce contained as many as 70 percent more polyphenols, a class of antioxidant found to reduce risks of cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease and cancer.
But "organic produce" is a pretty broad label, and with so many different fruits and vegetables to choose from, how do you know what to prioritize? Which organically-grown fruit or veggie is healthier than the others?
If you're on the lookout for that one piece of produce that beats out the rest as a rich source of antioxidants and phenols, look no further than Seagreens® organic seaweed!
Independent researchers from Newcastle University have also compared the antioxidant value of Seagreens to other organic fruits and vegetables and found that Seagreens seaweed seasoning and all natural supplements contained:
- A concentrated source of antioxidants that remains high even through initial digestion
- Antioxidants released in the gut lumen that allow for greater protection from oxidative damage
- Comparable levels of polyphenols to other phenol-rich foods
- More effective radical scavengers than even green tea.
Not only is Seagreens even healthier for you than many other organic crops, but the ease with which our natural health supplements — such as The Culinary Ingredient or The Mineral Salt — can be added to your favorite meals makes cooking with seaweed simpler than ever before!
