For many people following a vegan, vegetarian, raw or macrobiotic diet, one of the biggest challenges can be meeting the daily nutritional requirements.  That’s where Seaweed becomes a big player in the health of your ongoing diet!  Some seaweeds can also contain up to 10 times more calcium than milk, and eight times as much as beef. Seaweed is also organic and kosher.

 

Seaweed is one of the most nutritionally-dense plants on the planet, and offers an abundant source of minerals and nutrients that are essential for optimum health including:

  • Iodine
  • Vitamin B12
  • Omega-3
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc
  • Vitamins A and C

 

There are some amazing and incredible ‘health things’ that seaweed can do for you and why it's essential to a vegan diet: Not only does it provide the body with magnesium, zinc, vitamin B12, biotin, and iron, just one gram of seaweed provides your entire day's worth of iodine, a critical mineral for the thyroid. Plus, it can help increase hair and nail growth.

 

----------------------------------------

An interesting thing to note - iodine is important in the maintenance of healthy metabolism, cognitive function, skin, child development, nervous system as well as thyroid function.

----------------------------------------

 

Other plant foods containing iodine include - wholegrains, green beans, courgettes, kale, spring greens, watercress, strawberries and organic potatoes with skin. However, amounts tend to be low and variable depending on how much iodine is in the soil …. Everyone needs iodine, but it’s especially important for vegans, since many healthy plant foods like flax, soy, and broccoli have compounds, which can interfere with thyroid function in people with not enough iodine intake.

 

Seaweed is an exceptional source of nutrients, especially for vegetarians. According to a 2014 study published in the journal Nutrients

 

Since a vegan diet can lack getting certain nutrients from the foods that we eat, like certain nutrients including omega-3s, iodine, Vitamin B12, calcium, and magnesium can sometimes be a bit challenging. That’s where seaweed comes to the rescue!

 

Brown Seaweed / Kelp is rich in magnesium, fiber, iodine, and may help keep you fuller longer than starchy foods rich in fiber like whole wheat noodles or bread. Kelp has even been linked to fat reduction and better digestion.
