If you’re looking for a tasty, nutrient-packed addition to your meals why not give seaweed a try? Compared to land-grown vegetables, sea vegetables have 10 –20 times more useable minerals, particularly iodine, as well as being rich in protein and vitamins. Seaweeds are a simple (and delicious!) way to add super-nutrition to your meals, snacks, and soups.
HealthPost stocks only the best seaweed supplements. Tested for contaminants and quality, wild harvested and naturally dried to preserve as many nutrients as possible. Seaweed can be a useful complement to typical Western diets that are often high in animal protein and processed foods.
Sea vegetables are full of goodness. Not only are they rich in minerals, they’re also a source of other essential nutrients, including carbohydrates, protein, fats, and vitamins, while the protein makeup is like that of eggs.
Seaweed supplements are an ideal addition to any diet. Being plant-derived makes them a good source of additional nutrients suitable for vegan/vegetarian diets.
Sea vegetables found at HealthPost include:
- Kelp – rich in iodine
- Dulse – high in protein
- Wakame – sweetest tasting seaweed
- Kombu – Japanese for kelp, it is dried in strips
- Sea spaghetti – noodle shaped and mild in taste
- Sea lettuce – bright green, great source of iron
Organic seaweed supplements claim to be the most highly mineralised plants on earth and they are super convenient as they can be added to salads or soups, used as seasoning, or just eaten as a snack.
If you have a diagnosed thyroid disorder, it’s important to consult with your health practitioner before consuming products that contain seaweed.
