The richness of seaweed

Minerals and trace elements...
Seaweed absorbs and concentrates nutrients from sea water through osmosis. It's a fantastic source of minerals (magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium and sulphur) and trace elements (copper, zinc and cobalt) all of which are essential for the body.

Proteins...
Proteins of plant origin are rich in essential amino-acids and are similar in structure to proteins of animal origin. Seaweed has a valuable place at the heart of a vegan or vegetarian diet.

Non-absorbable carbohydrates...
The majority of sugars found in seaweed are soluble fibres. They can't be absorbed or assimilated by the body, but they assist in intestinal transit.

Vitamins...
Depending on its environment (saltiness of the water, tide, wind) each species of seaweed adapts by synthesising elements which are necessary for their survival. In these elements, you can find vitamins A and C. Dulse and Nori are also rich in vitamin B12; a vitamin uncommon in land plants.

Low in fat...
Seaweed has a very small proportion of fatty acids. It does, however, have unsaturated fats, such as Omega 3, which are good for the body.
