Have you heard about the multiple health benefits sea vegetables — seaweed and algae — bring to the table?

Seaweed is the ocean’s natural sea vegetable. It absorbs an abundance of minerals essential to the human body including, bromine, calcium, chlorine, cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, manganese, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and sulfur as well as vitamins A, C, and K. Even more impressive, seaweed takes nitrogen to synthesize proteins that support protoplasm, the parts of cells that form the building blocks to sustain life itself.

Health Benefits of Seaweed

Sea vegetables’ health benefits have been recognized for centuries. Populations that regularly consume seaweed as a food live long and healthy lives. Many have blended sea vegetables into medicinals to treat various ailments including:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Blood clotting
  • Celiac disease
  • Depression
  • Detoxification
  • Headache
  • Inflammation
  • High LDL cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Thyroid problems including
    Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

In past eras, seaweed was used to treat parasites (worms). More recent research suggests seaweed extracts can help regulate estrogen and estradiol levels, two hormones that develop sexual organs and keep them functioning. They may also lower risk for breast cancer. Wakame, a staple in Japanese soups, contains fucoxanthin and has been used in Eastern medicine to relieve menstrual irregularities. It also has high levels of calcium and iodine and is in the wakame soup Miyeok-guk given to Korean mothers after birth to stimulate lactation. Many women eat wakame during pregnancy as well. Lab research has shown it burns fat tissue in mice.

Seaweed benefits have literally been life-saving at different times in history. Seaweed extracts were used to relieve respiratory irritation in soldiers exposed to poisonous gas during World War I, and so-called Irish Moss (red algae found along North Atlantic coastlines) was used to make bandages when cotton ones ran out. Earlier, it was one of the few foods to sustain survivors of the Irish Potato famine.
