Seaweeds are nutritional powerhouses and are worthy of being a regular feature of your meals. Sea vegetables are raised and bathed in the mineral-rich sea and contain collectively 56 known minerals and trace elements considered essential body requirements, providing high quantities of potassium, iron, magnesium, iodine and calcium. Another substance found in seaweed is sodium alginate, this compound binds heavy metals found in the gastrointestinal tract, forming a gel-like salt that has been said to eliminate radioactive and environmental contaminates.

Seaweeds are healing to the mucous membranes, promote healthy skin and are said to enhance the flexibility and mobility of joints. They do this because they are high in trace elements and calcium required for all wounds to heal properly
