The health benefits of seaweed make it the perfect addition to your daily diet, but what exactly are these health benefits of seaweed?
There are numerous health benefits of seaweed, making it one of the superfoods you should be consuming daily. Many foods offer good levels of key nutrients, but may not offer a wide range of benefits. For example, an orange is great for vitamin C, but has a limited range of other nutrients.
But the health benefits of seaweed used by I Seaweed has a very broad range of minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids and a range of antioxidants. These multiple health benefits of seaweed make it an excellent inclusion as part of a healthy, balanced diet every day for the whole family. More health benefits of seaweed are presenting themselves through research, even suggesting it can help with blood sugar and weight management.
(gram for gram comparisons)
The levels of health benefits of seaweed change depending on the species. All seaweed is good, but some is just better!
Ensuring a traceable, sustainable and high quality seaweed supply is essential for getting the most health benefits of seaweed. Our I Seaweed product range is specially selected by Doctor Seaweed® to ensure you only get the best seaweed available.
Some other seaweed products out there are not 100% natural seaweed like ours, meaning you won’t get the most health benefits of seaweed. Remember the seaweed used in our I Seaweed range is simply 100% organic and kosher Scottish seaweed, harvest, dried and then milled. Nothing is added and nothing is taken away.
Essential iodine is one of the main health benefits of seaweed
One of the key health benefits of seaweed is its natural iodine levels, and I Seaweed ensure every supply boasts high concentrations of iodine, providing sufficient levels to enable EU Approved Health Claims that are relevant to the whole family. These are:
Normal Growth of Children Normal Thyroid Function Normal Cognitive Function
Maintenance of Normal Skin Energy Yielding Metabolism
Normal Functioning Nervous System
In the UK, iodine deficiency is a serious and growing issue. The UK is just one of two high income countries in the world which has an iodine deficiency, and has a worse level than even troubled and developing countries such as South Sudan. This is largely due to poor dietary choices and restricting important food groups from the diet (iodine is also available in seafood and dairy products). Using a pinch of seaweed in your daily diet through our Superfood Seaweed Capsules or Superfood Seaweed Powders will provide adequate iodine for all the family. Your body will get the iodine it needs thanks to the health benefits of seaweed.
It’s so easy to incorporate the health benefits of seaweed into the whole family’s diet!
Simply take 2 capsules daily for all the health benefits of seaweed
Taking seaweed in capsule form is a great way to incorporate the health benefits of seaweed into your daily diet. Our seaweed is simply dried, milled and put straight into a capsule. No processing, nothing added, just 100% organic seaweed. It’s natural wild seaweed bursting with nutrients and health benefits.
Add the health benefits of seaweed into your everyday cooking
Using our Seaweed Superfood Powder is excellent way of adding the health benefits of seaweed into all your recipes from bread and cakes to casseroles and smoothies. Less that 1 teaspoon is all it takes, so it seems crazy not to add some if it is going to boost the nutritional content for your daily food. Seaweed also makes a healthy, flavour-boosting replacement for salt! For ideas and inspiration look at our recipes with seaweed page >>
Iodine is vital for children and during pregnancy, so don’t hesitate to add the health benefits of seaweed into your diet
Research in various scientific journals, including the highly respected medical journal The Lancet, concludes with results that show the “importance of adequate iodine status during early gestation and emphasise the risk that iodine deficiency can pose to the developing infant, even in a country classified as only mildly iodine deficient. Iodine deficiency in pregnant women in the UK should be treated as an important public health issue that needs attention.”
During pregnancy, many recommendations are to have slightly higher iodine intake as compared to when not pregnant. Research has shown children born from iodine sufficient women had higher IQ’s than those who were born from iodine deficient women. This continues through childhood.
So why not start today and get the health benefits of seaweed into your diet? Whether through capsules or cooking, your body will thank you!
