Irish Sea Moss (Chondrus Crispus)
(Organic Sea Moss)
Irish Sea Moss (commonly spelled as seamoss) is a type of seaweed that contains 92 minerals. As you might expect from the name, it is found in the Atlantic along the rocky coasts of Ireland and Scotland. But it is also found in the Caribbean and is popular in Jamaica as a breakfast food! It has a fanlike shape and can be greenish-yellow, dark red, brown, or even purple. (1) Sea Moss has been a part of traditional cuisines for hundreds of years. And for many reasons, like blueberries and kale, Irish Sea Moss is gaining a reputation as a superfood.
Like most seaweeds, its leaves are high in Vitamin A, vitamin B12, and iodine. It is also rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron, but Irish Moss is known for having a particular property. When you boil Irish Sea Moss, it forms a type of jelly. This jelly is carrageenans. (2) Carrageenans are polysaccharides found in Irish Sea Moss, also known as Irish carraigín, or "little rock." In modern times, manufacturers use carrageenans to thicken and stabilize foods that are high in dairy, like ice cream, smoothies, and pudding. It is also a popular replacement for gelatin in vegan foods.
People have been harvesting and eating seaweed for centuries. In fact, there are archeological findings of people eating seaweed going back 10,000 years! In Ireland, it is collected in early spring and became an especially important food during the famines of 1846-51. (3)
Because Irish Sea Moss is rich in potassium chloride, the Irish have long used it as a staple for coughs and lung ailments. They believe it is an expectorant and has anti-viral properties. (4) In the old days, Irish mothers used to make a carrageenan pudding for sick children.
Scientific Studies on Irish Sea Moss
Irish Sea Moss is of interest to researchers for its natural antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. (5) As far back as the 60s, scientists have been looking to carrageenans for anti-inflammatory properties to help people with inflammatory diseases like arthritis. (6)
More recently, animal studies have been done looking at carrageenans as a possible treatment in Parkinson's Disease. (7) In 2019, researchers started looking at carrageenans for its anti-cancer activity and its ability to improve immunity. (8)
Other exceptional ingredients found in Sea Moss +
Burdock Root (Arctium)
Burdock plants are related to sunflowers and are part of the daisy family. People have been using teas and tinctures made of these plants to support their health for centuries. Burdock is native in North Asia and Europe. It has migrated to the United States, where it is found growing wild in fields and meadows. Some people even consider it a weed! Like its cousin, the sunflower, burdock grows very tall and can be over 5' high. Its flowers are popular with honeybees.
Much of the burdock plant can be consumed. The tender roots appear in dishes in East Asia. The young leaves are part of Japanese cuisine, and burdock drinks are popular in Europe. But in traditional medicine, it isn't the enormous green leaves or the spiky purple flowers that are used; it is the plant's roots. These roots contain compounds called sterols and tannins.
The Benefits of Burdock Root
Though burdock root has been widely used by traditional herbalists, modern research is just now starting to look at the potential benefits.
Help Reduce Fatigue and Improve Physical Performance
Researchers are studying the effects of burdock root in its ability to improve exercise-induced fatigue. Initial animal studies showed that it significantly improved grip strength and physical endurance. (9) As part of a daily regimen, Sea Moss + may help you support your fitness goals by maintaining vigor and pep.
Burdock May Help Lower Blood Sugar Levels.
For years, burdock has been a traditional herb taken by people with diabetes to help maintain lower blood sugar levels. (10) Now, researchers are looking into this as well. These studies are researching the burdock root's ability to help the body process blood glucose and increase insulin. (11) Approximately 463 million adults have diabetes. Burdock root can promote keeping blood sugar levels within their normal range.
May Help Treat and Prevent Infections
Laboratory and animal studies have explored the use of burdock for bacterial infections and kidney stones. (12) The reason is that microbes like to hide out in biofilms, which are clusters of microorganisms that adhere to wet and moist surfaces in your body. It is thought that biofilms cause up to 80% of infections. (13) These biofilms shield microbes from antibiotics and even your own immune system. Scientists are looking at the tannins in burdock root for its ability to degrade biofilms. (14) (15)
Besides, the burdock root is a diuretic, so it can increase urine flow, which can be helpful for people suffering from kidney stones.
Burdock Root as an Antioxidant
The burdock root is a powerful antioxidant. (16) Antioxidants are substances that may prevent or delay cell damage. You may be familiar with the term "free-radicals." Free-radicals are formed naturally by your body when you exercise and outside forces like air pollution and cigarette smoke. Free radicals can damage cells through a process known as oxidative stress. Antioxidants are shown to counteract oxidative stress. (17) Oxidative stress also causes inflammation, so scientists are looking burdock root to help people with inflammation-related health problems, like arthritis in the knee. (18)
Bladder wrack (Fucus vesiculosus)
Like Sea moss (also known as irish moss, seamoss, sea-moss), Bladder wrack is a type of seaweed. You can find it in the chilly waters of the North Sea, the Baltic Sea, and the coasts of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It's brownish in color and has circular air bladders on its leaves, hence its name. It is used as a food flavoring in Japan and is a common ingredient in kelp tablets.
* The leaves of bladder wrack contain iodine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, minerals, and trace metals.
Animal studies have shown that the sodium alginate found in bladder wrack can help lower lipid levels, which helps with sex hormones and maintaining proper menstruation cycles. (19)
Support Thyroid Function
Bladder wrack is high in iodine. Iodine is an element your body needs to function correctly. Your body does not manufacture iodine, so it must come from outside sources. Your thyroid uses iodine in the manufacture of thyroid hormones. Your body's hormones are used to keep your organs, brain, and heart working as they should and to keep your body warm. (20) Researches are presently looking at bladder wrack as a way to support healthy thyroid function. (21)
