Sea moss benefits

Though much research still needs to be conducted on the health benefits of sea moss, it potentially boasts 92 micro and macronutrients, each of which can positively affect our bodies. Scientists who study this exceptional seaweed have posited that it can improve human health in the following areas:

  • Heart disease and cholesterol
  • Diabetes and blood sugar control
  • Weight loss
  • Gut health

Sea moss also contains high levels of iodine, which people need for a healthy thyroid and hormonal balance. Because humans don't produce iodine naturally, it must be absorbed through diet. Sea moss is also high in iron and antioxidants, promoting immune health.

Increasing your essential nutrient intake with sea moss also helps improve skin and hair appearance.

How to Make Sea Moss Smoothies

Sea moss gel has a light flavor and mixes well with fruits, vegetables, and any food in general. You can make almost any recipe with sea moss, including smoothies, drinks, soups, salads, desserts, and even gummies.

Using sea moss in gel form allows you to incorporate it into a smoothie easily. In addition, it is vegan and dairy-free, and you have leeway as to what else you put in your drinks.

To make sea moss smoothies, simply add a few tablespoons of sea moss gel to any of your favorite smoothie recipes.

How much sea moss gel to put in smoothies?

Sea moss is a 100% natural ingredient. While it’s mostly safe for use and has minimal risks and side effects, you do not need to (and should not) consume much of it.

You can drink sea moss smoothies every day but make sure not to exceed the recommended daily intake (1 to 4 tbsp a day for an adult).

Typically, standard-size blenders, like Vitamix, Blend-tec, or others, will make two servings of smoothies which equals 32 ounces or 2 pints. We recommend adding 1 to 4 tablespoons of pure organic sea moss gel per serving of smoothie.
