Is Sea Moss Really Good for You? - A Comprehensive Guide

It is no secret that sea moss is a nutrient-rich superfood. Low in calories, fat and sugar, gluten-free, and packed with protein, vitamins and minerals, it is a powerhouse of nutrition. Early studies suggest that sea moss may boost the immune system and even protect the body from contracting salmonella. It is also a good source of iron and vitamins C and A, which are known to help the immune system.

Studies suggest that including seaweed as part of a healthy, balanced diet can help control blood sugar and potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. This is due, in part, to compounds such as carotenoid and fucoxanthin, which help reduce insulin resistance and help to better control blood sugar. The high fiber content of seaweed also helps to slow digestion. Seaweed, including sea moss, is one of the best plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for health and, especially, for the heart and cardiovascular system.

Studies suggest that seaweed may improve cholesterol balance and act as blood thinners, reducing risk of heart disease. Sea moss is a heart-healthy food mainly due to its omega-3 content. Research shows that the intake of omega-3 fatty acids is correlated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. It also contains a significant amount of fiber per serving which helps to remove LDL cholesterol (“bad cholesterol”) from the body.

Sea moss is also a great addition to a diet for weight loss or maintenance due to its low calorie content. Because it is a “bulky food” you can eat a lot with few calories and its high fiber content makes it a slow-digesting food, which means it will keep you full for longer. More research is needed to determine if sea moss could help prevent or treat salmonella in humans. Nutritionist Kerry Torrens describes the main health benefits of sea moss, with studies showing that this species of seaweed can provide nutrients to the thyroid, promote heart health, etc.

However, sea moss is also sold in the form of supplements, liquid drops and capsules, so you should follow the recommended serving size per product. A review of studies on the effects of seaweed (including sea moss) as a whole on humans, animals, and in vitro (microorganisms) suggests that certain components unique to seaweed have the potential to act as prebiotics and promote intestinal health.

Irish moss

, scientifically known as Chondrus crispus, is one of thousands of different species of algae and algae found in the North Atlantic rocky coastlines. It is high in minerals such as iodine, potassium and calcium, as well as vitamins and proteins.

Levels of these metals are generally low but it's another reason to be careful with how much sea moss you eat. Sea moss can also be used topically as beauty and personal care products such as shampoos or skin moisturizers. It is worth noting that the nutritional values will vary depending on the geographical location of the sea moss, the season of harvest and the way it is stored and processed. When it comes to weight loss effects of sea moss there are no strong studies to support that claim at all according to Kullab.

Always follow the instructions on the bottle or product and talk to your doctor about whether sea moss is right for you before consuming it. Sea moss can be added to smoothies, sauces, soups, stews or homemade jams thanks to its thickening properties.
