Why Sea Moss & Can It Really Help Your Body

Sea moss is a superfood, sometimes referred to as Irish moss, which is rich in nutrients and make up 92/102 minerals the body is actually composed of. The reason it is referred to as “Irish Moss” is due to a potato famine in Ireland back in the 1800’s and the people were forced to eat the moss.

Sea moss is an umbrella term used to describe different species of seaweed (some say it’s an algae). So it’s not really a moss per se but that is the term it commonly goes by.

Here’s a short list of the various elements, chemicals, trace minerals, and vitamins found in seamoss:

  • Calcium (Ca)
  • Folate (‎C19H19N7O6)
  • Iron (Fe)
  • Zinc (Zn)
  • Copper (Cu)
  • Sodium (Na)
  • Iodine (I)
  • Boron (B)
  • Soluble Potash (K2O)
  • Magnesium (Mg)
  • Manganese (Mn)
  • Phosphoric Acid (P2O5)
  • Potassium (K)
  • Selenium (Se)
  • Sulfur (S),
  • Carbohydrates including:
    • Alginic Acid (C6H11No6)n
    • Mannitol (C6H14O6)
    • Laminarin ‎(C6H10O5)x
  • Nitrogen (N), and
  • Vitamins A to E, and K

Sea moss has been used herbally and medicinally in other cultures for decades, to treat conditions ranging from coughs, infections, ease joint pain and even helping both men and women with low libido.

Sea moss can be consumed in the pill form, powder, dried herbs or blended into a gel (which you can add to your smoothies, apple sauce, tea, coffee or oatmeal).

*** Sea moss can be taken daily, and as with any other natural herbs, you must consult with a physician if you are taking any prescription drugs because the medicine may counteract with the sea moss. If you are pregnant or nursing, stay away from any sea moss that contains bladderwrack, because it can be harmful to you or baby.

*** Sea moss is likely a rich source of iodine. This essential mineral helps produce thyroid hormones. The goal with iodine is to consume a just-right amount, as both too little and too much can throw thyroid hormones out of whack. If you do not have a thyroid issue, you cannot “overdose” on sea moss. If you have any thyroid conditions, it is best to ask your doctor about dosage amount.

Be sure you are getting your sea moss from a reputable company. Sea moss actually grows on the coasts of the Caribbean Islands (Jamaica & St. Lucia are the most popular), and it grows off of a rock. There are people who are growing sea moss in pools and on farms (genetically modified), and when they do this, it losing most of its key nutrients.

Although sea moss has been around for centuries, Dr. Sebi is the one who really woke people up to the benefits of of this great herb.
