Ideally we have a diet which includes seaweeds, especially in today’s environment with mineral poor soil, and the use of chlorine and other chemicals. My Sea Monster can help by providing ocean minerals (including iodine), vitamins and amino acids needed for ultimate health. Women in Japan have some of the lowest rates of breast and ovarian cancers, and some of the highest rate in seaweed consumption. All of the seaweeds are naturally alkaline, have anti-inflammatory properties, and support detoxification.
Warning: Do not take before a surgery because of mild anticoagulant properties of the red Chondrus Crispus.
My Sea Monster's 7 Seaweeds
Ascophyllum Nodosum is a large, common brown sea vegetable from the Northern Atlantic Ocean, also known as Norwegian Kelp, Knotted Kelp or Knotted Wrack. Chemical and nutritional analyses indicate that it contains vitamins such as thiamine, folate acid and vitamin C, and amino acids and minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, iron and iodine, according to the Journal of Nutrition.
Chondrus Crispus, known under the common name Irish Moss or Carrageen Moss, is a species of red sea vegetables which grows abundantly along the Northern Atlantic coastline. It is rich in iodine and sulfur. Known mostly for aiding in digestion and intestinal disorders, it possesses antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is also considered a mild anticoagulant, and research has claimed that it may reduce high blood pressure and the risk of arteriosclerosis.
Fucus Vesiculosus, known by the common names Red Wrack, Bladder Wrack, Red Fucus and Sea Oak, is found in the Northern Atlantic Ocean. Primary chemical constituents of this plant include mucilage, algin, mannitol, beta-carotene, iodine, bromine, potassium and many other minerals. This species has been shown to help women with abnormal menstrual patterns and/or menstrual- related disease histories.
Fucus Evanescens is an Arctic species, originating in the North Atlantic. As with other brown sea vegetables, it is very high in magnesium and high in protein, vitamin A, iodine, bromine and phosphorous. It also contains vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E and an extensive list of minerals such as potassium, calcium, sodium, sulfur, chloride, silicon, iron, manganese, copper, zinc, titanium and trace elements.
Laminaria is a genus of 31 species of large, brown sea vegetables, all sharing the common name Kelp. Aside from its high mineral content, Kelp has strong anticarcinogenic properties. Also, the sodium alginate in Kelp has been shown to reduce the body's absorption of radiation.
Porphyra may be the most domesticated marine sea vegetable, also known as Laver or Nori. Containing more vitamin C than oranges and minerals that include calcium (10 times more than milk), manganese, copper and selenium, it is particularly high in trace elements such as zinc.
Ulva Lactuca, a bright green sea vegetable in the division Chlorophyta, is also known by the common name Sea Lettuce. It is high in protein and vitamins A, B1, C and minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium, and especially iron. In some parts of the world, people eat sea lettuce in soups and salads.
