Sea Moss, also known as red algae or Irish moss, is not simply trending, it is here to stay. This mineral-rich health food staple became what it is today due to its abundance across the warmer open waters of the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
In the 1800’s, it is said that the people of Ireland had relied on harvesting sea moss to fill in nutritional deficiencies during the potato famine when disease ran rampant and food was scarce. Fast forward one hundred years to the 1900’s where the now late Alfredo Bowman (or better known in the holistic food community as “Dr. Sebi” a self-educated herbalist healer) whotaught about how disease is rooted in an excess of inflammation and mucous. He believed that sea moss aided in detoxifying an overabundance of mucous.
Sea moss even created a buzz when mentioned on live television back in 2001 on the hit show, “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” when TLC’s Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes made a guest appearance. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5omsShWjZ0Y&t=264s Timestamp: 4:18)
What exactly makes sea moss worthy of a “superfood” name? The mineral content alone is noteworthy, as it contains 92 out of 102 minerals that our human bodies need! When paired with additional herbs bladderwrack (who’s trace minerals complete the 102/102 profile) and burdock root (helpful with skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis) making this combination a fantastic food-based supplement. Ocean’s Promise, the brand that the House of Nutrition keeps stocked in the fridge, elaborates further:
“Sea Moss is an excellent source of iodine, minerals, protein and potassium chloride. Potassium chloride helps to support healthy inflammation and phlegm levels of the mucus membranes, thus making Sea Moss ideal for respiratory issues. Other key elements include sulphur compounds, bromine, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, pectin, Vitamins C, B, B12, K and A.
Sea Moss is also ideal for healthy skin. The iodine and mineral compounds aid in the body’s natural production of collagen, which plumps and tones the skin, and fights signs of aging. It is also great for the thyroid, as it supports a healthy balance of the thyroid hormones and supports healthy inflammation response in the body, including in the joints.
This natural superfood contains compounds which supports healthy microbial and viral responses in the body, helping to boost immunity. It also aids in detoxifying the body of heavy metals and pollutants. Sea Moss also helps the body to have a robust response to viruses, yeast and bacteria which may need to be dealt with.”
Ocean’s Promise is a family run business from start to finish. The pure moss is wild harvested from the pristine waters of the Caribbean and is thoroughly cleaned by hand before shipping to the states. The fresh moss is then carefully whipped with purified water and no other synthetic additives.
