Seaweed + Algae Benefits and Beyond

 

TRUTH:  Seaweed and Algae – I am personally obsessed with the healing nature of seaweed/algae!   A superfood, according to its definition, is a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.  Seaweed is one of the most nutrient-rich organisms on the planet. What we typically think of as seaweed is actually a form of multi-cellular algae. Essentially, all seaweeds are algae but not all algae are seaweed. 

 BEAUTY:  it works hard to nourish the skin’s microbiome.  seaweeds + algae are rich sources of:

Vitamins, especially A, B, C, E and K

  • Minerals such as magnesium, calcium, copper, potassium, iodine, iron and zinc
  • Trace elements such as vanadium, chromium, selenium and more
  • Soluble fiber
  • Carbohydrates (the good ones)
  • Antioxidants
  • Amino acids
  • Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids
  • Enzymes
  • Phytohormones
  • Alginic acid

Here’s a quick outline of some of the most impressive benefits of algae and seaweeds for skin:

  • Providing essential hydration to alleviate the feel of dry, tight & uncomfortable skin
  • Soothes & calms a variety of irritations for smooth, healthy, glowing skin
  • Purifies for a more even skin tone
