I know what you are thinking… seaweed! Gross! But if you can get passed the “gross-ness”, seaweed is very nutritious. Susan Weed (yes that is her name) is an herbalist that calls seaweed “an everyday miracle”.
Seaweed boosts immune functioning, relieves minor aches and pains, it is also a cardiovascular, endocrine, digestive, and nervous system revitalizer. All seaweed is high in fiber and any seaweed you choose to incorporate into your diet, they all contain an extensive variation of vital nutrients. These nutrients include enzymes, nucleic acids, amino acids, minerals, trace elements, and A, B, C, D, E, and K vitamin complexes. She goes on and on about how it nourishes the heart, circulation, blood pressure, cholesterol, digestive health and lots more.
I started incorporating seaweed into my diet. I found that was quite easy. I simply add it to anything while it is still cooking. As it cooks it will naturally break apart. It looks like you added some kind of green to your meal and you can’t even taste it. I add it into the crockpot, stir fry, meatloaf, any kind of beef dish, fish meals, etc. I think you get the picture.
Let me digress for a moment. I would like to talk to you about sodium. Salt seems to be the blame for high blood pressure, at least that’s what “they” want you to believe. “They” are doctors and advertisements. Actually the blame lies with sodium chloride and possible the several other agents that are added to table salt.
Now back to seaweed. Seaweed’s naturally occurring sodium is nourishment that is good for the heart and the entire circulatory system. You won’t find added agents in seaweed.
I hope I have convinced you to at least try it. If not, I hope you will do your own research to find your own answers.
