The human body is made up of 102 minerals and Irish/Sea Moss contains a whopping 92 of them. It provides a wealth of other important nutrients including; protein, beta-carotene, B-vitamins, pectin, Vitamin C and sulphur. One of the most important of these nutrients is a sulphur-containing amino acid called taurine, which is more abundant in seamoss than any other seaweed – a nutrient that is commonly lacking in vegetarian and vegan diets.
It is an excellent immune boosting food that can be invaluable in the recovery from debilitating illness. Plus, its high vitamin and mineral content make it the perfect food to replenish and revitalize the body after a long battle with disease. Perhaps one of the most important and undervalued benefits of sea moss is its ability to help balance thyroid hormones.
Sea moss is extremely high in the trace element iodine – which supplements those with thyroid issues. The thyroid gland contains the highest concentration of iodine than any other organ in the body. However, you cannot make thyroid hormones without sufficient levels of iodine which seamoss so graciously provides.
However, be cautious in consuming this plant because it functions as a thinner. If you are taking blood thinners, you should abstain from using Irish Moss in any form. In addition, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should not use seamoss because the effects are unknown.
