Sea moss is a sea algae that is found in most oceans of the world. It has been used for centuries to treat various illnesses and to nourish the body, due to its high mineral content.
Sea moss contains 47 percent protein, which makes it one of the highest protein sea vegetables. It also contains many trace minerals that are essential for your body to function, heal and maintain health.
Some of the vitamins and minerals found in sea moss include calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, folate, selenium and vitamins A, K, and E, iodine (which aids in the formation of thyroid hormones), iron, manganese, copper and cobalt (which are all essential for cell growth).
Sea moss can be taken internally and is also great for the skin, helping to improve conditions like psoriasis, eczema and acne breakouts, and can be used to treat dry skin, hydrate the body and relieve sunburns. Sea moss is also beneficial for thinning hair.
You can create sea moss gel by boiling sea moss in water, letting it steep overnight and straining the mixture the following day. You can then blend the sea moss, adding small amounts of water until you reach your desired consistency. Then apply the sea moss gel directly to your scalp or skin. You can also add it to your tea, smoothies and pure juices for internal and external nourishment and support. 2-4 teaspoons of sea moss gel per day is a beneficial dose of this powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.
Dry, unsoaked and raw, sea moss can be stored for about a year in an airtight container, in a cool, dry location. Sea moss gel can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-3 months.
You can add other potent antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and antivirals such as elderberry, bladderwrack and mullein to your sea moss for even greater nutritional benefit.
Be sure to buy your sea moss from a reputable source and enjoy!
