Sea moss (also called irish moss) is a sea vegetable (seaweed) that is well-known for being 'nature's multi-vitamin' because of its extremely high nutrient profile. Dubbed one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world, it contains high levels of magnesium, it's a great source of iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, iodine, selenium, and manganese, as well as vitamins A, C, D, E, K, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 (folate), and is a great source of Omega-3. Medicinally, sea moss has been used by coastal healers and herbalists to treat many ailments, including removing mucus from the body, to treat colds, coughs and respiratory illnesses, psoriasis and eczema, and thyroid issues. Sea moss is also used to treat iron deficiency making it the perfect partner for our IRON BLEND+. Topically, sea moss can be made into a paste and applied to burns, rashes, and used as a face mask. Sea moss can also be blended with hemp seeds, medjool dates and filtered water to make a nutritious children's milk.
An all-rounder, Sea Moss also increases energy levels, helps elevate moods, promotes brain, bone, and lung health, helps immune response and the digestive system, as well as post-pregnancy hair loss, and improves overall hair and nail health.
Sea moss has been safely used by pregnant and breastfeeding women for many years. It is typically safe during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, however, please consult your holistic health care professional before consuming. Plantfed Mama custom makes herbal blends at no extra cost.
