We list 5 reasons for you:
1) Few calories, lots of nutrients
A cup of seaweed contains only 30 calories. And in addition to being low in calories, it is rich in calcium, iodine, magnesium, iron and contains several B vitamins. And if that's not enough, seaweed also contains omega 3 fatty acid, thiamine and niacin. Thiamine is essential for the energy supply of the body and niacin is good for blood circulation and promotes a healthy cholesterol level
The alginate in seaweed provides protection of the intestinal wall, making digestion slower and the nutrients can be better absorbed.
Eating seaweed products supports the removal of waste and heavy metals from your body.
4) Healthy heart
Did you know that the longest-living people are from Okinawa (Japan), where they often eat seaweed. The fibres in seaweed can help to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks.
