Seaweed: A Mineral Goldmine

Seaweed: A Mineral Goldmine

If you’re looking for a new way to get all the minerals your body needs to function at its best, look no further than seaweed. Seaweeds provide all of the 56 minerals and trace minerals, such as selenium and zinc, required for the physiological functions of the body and they contain 10 to 20 times more minerals than land plants. The minerals from seaweeds have also been shown to be more bioavailable than other mineral sources. Here’s a sample of the mineral goldmine sea vegetables provide:

  • Calcium – for skeletal health, heart health and improved nervous system functioning
  • Magnesium – activates enzymatic activity and is essential for heart health
  • Potassium – naturally prevents high blood pressure and provides cellular energy
  • Sodium – essential for the correct balance of body fluids
  • Iron – as hemoglobin, transports and distributes oxygen to all your cells
  • Iodine – promotes thyroid health
  • Chromium – works with insulin to regulate blood sugar
  • Copper – protects nerve sheaths, builds supple arteries, and is required for iron absorption

Not only is seaweed chocker block full of minerals, but it also absorbs and naturally reduces or eliminates radioactive elements and heavy metal contaminants from our bodies.
