Seaweed has many benefits. For centuries our ancestors have used seaweed for various applications, mostly because seaweed is rich in minerals, vitamins, proteins and fibers that support people, animals and land.
Seaweed contains more minerals and vitamins than any land plant and the natural content of iodine in seaweed is a thousand times higher than any plant grown on land.
It is not surprising that Eskimos discovered that they can get their vitamins by consuming seaweed.
Compared to meat, Sea lettuce contains 25 times more iron than meat itself. Wakame also contains 10 times more calcium than milk and when dried 6 times more fiber than whole wheat bread.
