Minerals and Trace Elements

Power up your body with a powerhouse of daily vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and nutrients.

Sea vegetables provide all 56 minerals and trace elements required to your body in quantities that greatly exceed those even found in land plants. For example:

  • About 1/3 cup (1/4 oz.) serving of Dulse or Kelp gives you up to 4 times the amount of iron in spinach, and more than kidney beans, apricots, and peas.
  • The same size serving of Alaria gives you more calcium than ½ cup boiled kale or bok-choy.
  • Magnesium is twice as abundant in Kelp and Alaria than in collard greens, and exceeds even walnuts, bananas, potatoes, oatmeal, and sockeye salmon.

Unlike most multi-vitamins, these essential nutrients from sea veggies are bio-available to your body in an optimal chelated form so your body easily absorbs and utilizes them.

  • Great salt substitute with benefits! Sea vegetables provide bio-available, essential sodium balanced with potassium (as well as with calcium and magnesium) at relatively low levels per serving. For instance, Dulse contains less sodium per serving than one slice of most commercial breads and one half to one third the sodium in one cup of cooked beet greens. Kelp has 1/3 as much sodium, Alaria ¼, Dulse 1/8 and Nori 1/9 as 1/2 tsp. table salt!
  • Extra energy from loads of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin B6, B12, Iron, Zinc and Vitamin A
  • Protein! The protein content of sea vegetables can range up to 28%. The amino acid composition is well balanced and contains all or most of the essential amino acids. As a result, sea veggies provide a higher quality protein than certain grains and beans that are lacking one or two essential amino acids. One of the more important amino acids found especially in kelp is glutamic acid; which helps improve mental and nervous system activity, provides energy and even helps with sugar cravings.
