The wonders of seaweed.

Seaweed is truly an amazing gift from nature.  Sea water itself is incredibly similar to blood plasma in composition, and it contains almost every single mineral needed for the human body.  Seaweed takes these amazing minerals and concentrates them into a tasty treat.  Seaweed is a wonderful salty snack packed with nutrition.  Seaweed can be used in place of salt in soups and broths, added to salads and stir fry, or baked into delicious seaweed chips.

Seaweed has powerful cleansing actions on the body.  Studies have found that seaweeds can actually bind to toxins in the body and help remove them from your system.  Seaweed is packed with potassium, fiber, vitamin A, chromium, iodine, iron, and the b vitamins.  Seaweed has been found in several studies to: possess powerful anticancer properties, boost the immune system, lower cholesterol, and help speed fat metabolism.  Dulse, kelp, and nori are all fairly easily accessible types of seaweed in America.

Seaweed has been eaten for hundreds of years in Japan and throughout Asia as a staple in their native diet.  Give some seaweed a try I know you will like it and it will probably become a new favorite instantly!
