About this deal
There are more than 100 different species of edible seaweed, and around 10,000 species of macro-algae. Seaweed comes in three color varieties – red, brown and green. Brown varieties of seaweed are the most commonly eaten, including wakame and kelp. They are also the varieties that have had the most scientific research conducted on them. The next most common is red seaweed, such as nori, which is the one you would be familiar with if you frequent sushi restaurants. Unsurprisingly, the most common seaweed-based diets are eaten in Japan, which is where sushi originates, and Japanese diets are among the healthiest in the world. Health Benefits Of Seaweed
While seaweed can definitely be considered a superfood for its extraordinary health benefits, there are potential health issues to consider before adding it to every meal. Dulse, a type of red seaweed, for example, has more than 30 times the amount of potassium than an equally sized piece of banana. Eating that much potassium runs the risk of causing heart palpitations in people with kidney problems, however, it doesn’t pose a threat in people without pre-existing problems.Several other animal studies have reported improved blood sugar control when seaweed extracts are added to the diet ( 54, 55, 56). Summary Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Seaweeds like Laminaria Digitata are a potentially rich source of amino acids (like glycine) and natural antioxidants (like vitamin C), which promote collagen production to smooth lines and give the appearance of plumper, more youthful-looking skin.
Although the results in animal studies appear very promising, it’s important that human studies are conducted to verify these findings. Summary Seaweed has more than 50 powerful minerals and, because of that, people have enjoyed long soaks in seaweed baths for centuries. The heavy-duty detoxification properties in mineral-rich seaweed nourish and rejuvenate the skin, fight cellulite and minimize the visible appearance of wrinkles. As well as fighting signs of ageing, seaweed extracts can minimize pigmentation and blotchiness in the skin, especially paler skin types.

By the year 2040, 642 million people worldwide are expected to have type 1 or type 2 diabetes ( 49). These two hormones are responsible for the proper development and function of the sexual organs. Research suggests that eating seaweed may help regulate estrogen and estradiol levels, potentially reducing the risk of breast cancer, improving female fertility issues, and even controlling symptoms of PMS.
