Just How Nutritious is Seaweed?
This will come as no surprise to you – SeaLuxe cannot get enough of seaweed. We’re so into the ocean algae that we love telling you everything we know about it.
You, dear reader, may already know seaweed is added to some of our products and you might know we make a point of doing so because it’s so nourishing. But do you know just how nourishing it is? Approximately 34 per cent of dried seaweed is made up of minerals used by the human body. These include calcium, potassium, sulfur, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, and sodium (with traces of iron, copper, and zinc) – so the stuff packs a punch both in skincare as well as in food.
Too bad Popeye didn’t eat seaweed instead of spinach because nori – the dried, crunchy stuff usually used in rolling sushi – contains two to three times the amount of Vitamin B1, B2, Niacin, B6, and B12 as spinach!
It really is an incredible superfood and skincare ingredient. We just can’t get enough of it!
