Sea Moss, also known as Irish Moss, is a type of botanical red algae that is classified as an inner beauty superfood. It has many soothing benefits and has been used in Ireland and Jamaica for years, served in a drink with milk and honey. Learn more about the benefits and uses of irish sea moss below!
1. Soothing and Calming
Sea Moss is considered a mucilaginous food, which means it is viscous and thick, and can easily coat mucus membranes in the body, like the respiratory or digestive system. This can be beneficial for soothing irritation and calming inflammation.
2. Nutrient Dense
Sea moss is full of vitamins, including energy-boosting B2, B9, and B12. It is also rich in vitamin C, as well as antioxidants and amino acids.
3. Prebiotic and Gut Nourishing Elements
Sea moss is considered a prebiotic, which is a type of soluble fiber that feeds probiotics and helps support your digestive system. In a 2015 study, it was shown to improve overall gut health and had a positive influence on gut microbial communities.
4. Improve your Emotional Health
Sea moss contains magnesium and potassium, which are both known mood boosters. Magnesium plays a critical role in brain function and can help with symptoms of depression as well. Potassium is essential for brain and nerve connections and generates nerve pulses. Nerve impulses are part of many bodily functions, including muscle contractions, heartbeat, reflexes, and much more.
