Welcome to our seaweed site. This project started out as a simple search for a remedy on allergies. All we knew about sea vegetables back then is how delicious they tasted.
It was a sea vegetable tablet that helped balance our immune system and healed us from our irritating allergies! Goodbye to daily sneezing and nose-blowing! This was definitely exciting news.
From here, we found out the other benefits of sea greens. Not only was it good for one's health, but it also had its beauty benefits. Another exciting plus :-)
Seaweed - today’s busy person’s age-old best health pal
Edible sea vegetables are hardworking marine plants that burst with multi-nutrients no other plant life in the world can give!
They feed and support every cell, tissue and organs of our bodies. Seaweed is the world’s most basic yet complete food! But don’t take my word for it, let’s learn from the thousands and thousands of experience of our great, grand ancestors…
Ancient super food is our ancestor’s secret to health and longevity
For thousands of years now, our forefathers fed on a diet of edible sea vegetables. They roamed the earth, shorelines and harvested what turned out to be the deepest secret to super health and long life.
From the Mediterranean coasts, the Nordic countries, Iceland, Alaska, down to the Pacific coast of Hawaii and the beaches of Okinawa, they fed mostly on game, seafood, and most specially, sea vegetables.
In fact, sea or ocean vegetables were so prized during those times that at one point, sea vegetable gardens were kept in Hawaii specifically for royalty! And the first ever-recorded proof that sea vegetables is a perfect food source dates back to 300 B.C. in China!
Yes, this fat-burning and anti-aging secret is as old as the sea!
So why are these greens from the sea best for busy people and other achievers like you and me?
Not only are they bearers of complete nourishment but also are natural weight loss and anti-aging “agents” as well. Now, scientists have proved that sea vegetables has a very positive effect on the human body.
Gillian McKeith, author of Living Food for Health, says sea vegetables contain key minerals not found anywhere else in plant form. Ms. Gillian also mentions that the body more easily absorbs the protein found in ocean vegetables than meat protein, making it one of nature’s best anti-ageing foods on earth!
Well, just like us, these sea veggies are awesome multi-taskers! Their benefits have been time-tested. Are age-old.
And with history on its side, sea vegetables today are turning out to be increasingly popular due to its multiple health benefits.
