Benefits of Seaweed


Seaweed has become more popular recently due to its wonderful health benefits. You may be used to hearing about seaweed for skin care or sushi, but it is not limited to just those two uses. Make Seaweed a part of your everyday diet.

Seaweed is packed full of iodine which aids thyroid function. It also contains micronutrients such as folate, magnesium, and zinc which have various health benefits. It is a low calorie snack coming in at about 20 calories per serving. Seaweed is a keto friendly snack. 

Seaweed aids in reducing risk of osteoporosis due to its antioxidant properties. It also aids in heart health due to it being a source of soluble fiber. 

Seaweed can be added to food as a topping, a flavor boosting additive to soups, or just eaten by itself as a healthy chip substitute. Seaweed has a light pleasant salty flavor. It’s delicious plain, but now comes in a variety of different flavors such as sesame, chili lime, and wasabi. When reaching for a bag of chips in the grocery store, try a bag of seaweed crisps instead. You will be pleasantly surprised by the taste.
