Seaweed

Seaweed is a Superfood and is part of what I call, the Superfoods family. Don’t hesitate to have a look on my other article “Superfoods” if you don’t remember what a Superfood is.

Yes ! You heard it right ! Seaweed may be horrible to see and to meet in the ocean or sea while you are swimming; but it has awesome nutrients properties ! It is also tasting really good, you should try it ! Even though some people might find it.. a little bit special ! ;P

What are real benefits of eating Seaweed ?

Seaweed are a good source of vitamins and minerals. They contain:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids (which may prevent sudden heart attack and stroke)
  • Vitamin K (play a role in blood clotting, bone metabolism, and regulating blood calcium levels)
  • Calcium (which is bone-friendly)
  • Magnesium (wait.. another bone-friendly ?!)
  • Iron (important component of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to transport it throughout your body)
  • Potassium (helping to maintain consistent blood pressure)
  • Iodine (important for cognitive function and maintaining a healthy skin)
  • Zinc (boost the immune system, and preventing lower respiratory infections)
  • Manganese (too many bone-friendly in Seaweed..)

Seaweed is also awesome for:

  • The minerals it contains in the fight against diseases.
  • Helping with blood pressure regulation.
  • Boosting mood.
  • Helping with thyroid regulation.

Do not forget that these are in no way some “miracle” food, capable of saving us from diseases. The basis to a good health is simply to eat healthy and to exercise!
