Dried Seamoss - Gold (2lb bag)
Dried golden Seamoss is harvested directly from St. Lucia and dried naturally in the sun. The benefits of seamoss are:
DI-Iodothyronine (DIT), what T3 breaks down into, is found in abundance in purple sea moss and for this reason it has been used as a treatment for thyroid disorders. Thyroxin (T4) and Tri-iodothyronine (T3) have been found as the main organically bound iodine compounds in several brown seaweeds (sea moss).
Iodine is more concentrated in sea moss than any other food and this is essential fuel for the thyroid. Selenium is also present in abundance and is a necessary factor in thyroid hormone production.
Sea Moss is also packed full of potassium. The cells of the body cannot function without potassium though strangely, our bodies do not have a mechanism to conserve potassium. Adding high-potassium foods like Sea Moss to the diet can significantly improve behaviour and mental functioning (especially for ADHD). High potassium foods are also very helpful for fibromyalgia, moodiness, agitation, depression and anxiety disorders.
Sea Moss contains also contains Algin. This phytonutrient has therapeutic value as a heavy metal detoxifying agent - meaning it helps pull heavy metals out of the tissues of our bodies. Additionally, Sea Moss is a healing agent to all mucous membranes (great for external skin health and internal digestive tract health).
Sea Moss helps relieve and prevent symptoms of colds and flu. It is also a rich source of potassium chloride, a nutrient which helps to dissolve catarrhs (inflammation and phlegm in the mucous membranes), which cause congestion. It also contains compounds which act as natural antimicrobial and antiviral agents, helping to get rid of any infections and acts as a natural cough suppressant.
Cold, flu-like, and other coughy-mucousy conditions the moss helps with include:
