Sea Moss + and Healthy Nutrition
Combining Sea Moss + with the Complete Nutrition Guide to the Alkaline Diet
Made in Oasis is all about promoting natural health, which is why we have created Sea Moss + and the Complete Guide to the Alkaline Diet. As you look through the Guide and read our blog posts about the foods we have selected, you may notice a theme. The food and the very ingredients of Sea Moss + are all about providing your body natural, ancestral foods and medicines.
Returning to Our Roots
The Guide recommends eating organic, non-GMO, non-hybrid fruits, vegetables, and grains whenever possible. In our modern society, man has modified and changed so much of the food you find in the grocery store with chemicals, artificial preservatives, and pesticides. Our bodies were not made to eat these chemicals. Plus, food scientists working for giant companies have made food hyper-palatable. Hyper-palatable is a word used to describe how modern food is engineered to appeal to our brains and our bodies in artificial ways. For example, your body needs a certain amount of natural sugar and salt to survive. In our traditional diet, these came from our environment in the form of fruit and nectar from plants like the agave. Our salt came from the ground or the sea. Now, chemists manipulate the food, so it is loaded with artificial sweeteners and salty flavors that our bodies used to get from nature. They have deliberately created food that is addictive and unhealthy. Is it any wonder that diabetes, heart disease, and obesity are on the rise?
How can we fix this? How can we eat so our bodies are correctly fueled and have the nutrients they need to be healthy? That is where Sea Moss + and our Alkaline Nutrition Guide come in.
The Alkaline Diet and Sea Moss +
Made in Oasis feels so strongly about health and wellness that we provide The Alkaline Nutrition Guide for free. You can download it from our site, and we include a printed copy with every order of Sea Moss +. But we also know that switching your diet completely can be a big task, especially if you have family members who haven't yet joined your health journey. The Alkaline Diet we recommend is vegan, and that alone can be a significant change for some people. So, we created Sea Moss +. Sea Moss + is a vegan supplement that contains natural ingredients used worldwide for thousands of years in traditional health practices. It is a simple way to start on your path toward health.
You are on this page because you care about your health and look for ways to support your overall wellness. You can start today with Sea Moss +.
The Importance of Sea Moss +
Irish Sea Moss
Sea Moss + contains two types of seaweed, Irish Sea Moss and bladderwrack. Unless you live along the coast of the Atlantic near Ireland or Scotland, or on the island of Jamaica, you are unlikely to have easy access to Irish Sea Moss. The people of these cultures have been eating Irish Sea Moss for thousands of years, and for a good reason. This seaweed is a superfood that contains 92 minerals! Not only that, it is rich in potassium chloride, which is why it has been used as an expectorant for people with coughs and illnesses in the lungs. (1)
Irish Sea Moss also has natural antioxidants and antimicrobial properties. In modern times, researchers have studied Irish Sea Moss and its ability to help people suffering from inflammatory diseases, like arthritis. (2) It's also studied for its immune system boosting qualities, its anti-cancer activity, and even as a possible treatment for Parkinson's Disease. (3,4)
The other seaweed in Sea Moss + is bladderwrack. Bladderwrack is found in the waters of the North Sea, the Baltic Sea, and the coasts of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Like Irish Sea Moss, the leaves of bladderwrack have essential minerals for your health. Those minerals include iodine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and other trace metals.
Also, like Irish Sea Moss, modern scientists are looking at this ancient food for its health benefits. For example, studies have shown that the sodium alginate found in bladderwrack can lower lipid levels, which helps with sex hormones and maintaining menstruation cycles. (5) Other research has looked at how the iodine in bladderwrack can support thyroid function. Your thyroid uses iodine to make hormones used to keep your organs, brain, and heart working as they should and keep your body warm. (6)
Without Sea Moss +, it would not be easy to get these two seaweeds into your diet every day. But now you can get both in one vegan capsule.
Also, Sea Moss + contains Burdock root. Burdock is a little easier to obtain than Irish Sea Moss and bladderwrack, and you don't have to go to the seashore to do it. Burdock root can be drunk as tea. You can find it at your local health food store, and it is one of the many approved herbal teas listed on the Made in Oasis Alkaline Nutrition Guide. However, burdock has so many vital benefits that Made in Oasis added it directly to Sea Moss + so you can get it in your daily supplement.
For example, 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. (7) Exercise and movement are an essential part of overall well-being, and burdock root can help you have the energy to get your body moving. But that is not all. Burdock root has been used in traditional medicine for many years to help lower blood sugar, which is why modern researchers are studying its ability to help the body process blood glucose and increase insulin. (8)
Burdock is also a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and has anti-bacterial qualities. (9) Antioxidants are substances that may prevent or delay cell damage. And as an anti-inflammatory, scientists are looking at burdock root to help people with inflammation-related health problems, like arthritis. (10) Other studies have explored the use of burdock for kidney stones and bacterial infections. (11) Here is how burdock can help lower your risk of diseases - microbes like to hide out in biofilms. Biofilms are groups of microorganisms that attach to wet and moist surfaces in your body, and it is estimated that biofilms cause up to 80% of infections. (12) 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. (13, 14)
