Why use Sea Moss Complex®?
Sea moss is a type of sea algae that people can add to food or take as a nutritional supplement. Sea moss is naturally rich in minerals and vitamins and has potential health benefits with regular use. Sea moss supports thyroid health. The thyroid needs iodine to create and utilize important hormones in the body. Without enough iodine, the thyroid may not function properly and could cause metabolic issues. As a natural source of iodine, types of sea algae such as sea moss may help prevent iodine deficiency.
Sea moss has prebiotic effects which could play a role in improving the health of the gut microbiome. A diet rich in prebiotic, fiber-rich foods such as sea moss help promotes a healthy immune system. Also, antioxidant properties in algae help protect against neurodegenerative disease and help fight against specific health issues. Burdock root extract, on the other hand, is a powerhouse of antioxidants, helps reduce inflammation, and removes toxins from the blood.

Organic Irish Sea Moss:
Despite its name, Irish moss (Chondrus crispus) isn’t really a moss: It is considered as a type of algae, or seaweed. This red, branching seaweed is found on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Britain, Europe, and North America. Irish moss plays an important role in a number of industries, but one of its most common uses is in food. Irish moss is largely composed of a jelly-like substance known as carrageenan, which renders Irish moss so broadly useful. Carrageenan can be employed as a vegan substitute for gelatin, as well as a general emulsifier, so it can be found in everything from ice cream to infant formula. There is some significant controversy surrounding carrageenan and Irish moss, with studies on both sides showing that carrageenan may have both positive and negative health effects.
Seaweeds are rich in iodine, a micronutrient that is vital for appropriate thyroid function. Iodine helps your thyroid produce hormones that control your metabolism, nerves, and bone growth. According to a study in salmon, supplemental seaweed has also improved immune response and immune modulation.
Seaweeds are a good source of live bacteria and fiber, both of which support a healthy gut microbiome. Seaweeds and microalgae are rich in fiber that can help you feel full and prevent overeating. Studies have shown that a compound in seaweed called fucoxanthin promoted fat metabolism in rats. Seaweed, including Irish moss specifically, is one of the best plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These fats are critical for a healthy heart. In fact, getting enough omega-3 fatty acids is connected to a lower risk of heart disease, blood clots, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.
One study found that the compound fucoxanthin in seaweed reduced high blood sugar. Another study found that a compound in seaweed called alginate prevented blood sugar spikes in pigs. Fucoxanthin and other carotenoids found in Irish moss act as antioxidants, which are known to help fight free radicals. Uncontrolled free radicals can damage cells, causing them to grow in dangerous ways — damaged cells can become health issues.
Burdock root is a vegetable native to Northern Asia and Europe, though it now grows in the United States. The burdock plant’s deep roots are very long and vary in color from beige to brown and nearly black on the outside. Burdock root has been used for centuries in holistic medicine to treat a variety of different conditions. Traditionally, it’s been most commonly used as a diuretic and a digestive aid.
Burdock root has been shown to contain multiple types of powerful antioxidants, including quercetin, luteolin, and phenolic acids. Antioxidants protect cells in the body from damage due to free radicals. They can help treat and prevent a number of different health conditions. Recent evidence has found that burdock root contains active ingredients in its root system that can remove toxins from the bloodstream.
Another possible use of burdock root is as an aphrodisiac. In a nonhuman study, it was found that the extract of burdock root had an aphrodisiac effect. The extract enhanced sexual function and increased the amount of sexual behavior in the male rats. Burdock root has also long been used to treat skin conditions like acne and eczema. The root’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties can help resolve skin issues when applied topically to the skin.
