Lately, this trendy ingredient can be found in all kinds of cosmetics, including lotions and skin-care masks. People generally take it as either a powder or as a pill, and it is a form of dietary supplement. Some even include it in their food diets as a gel, thickener, or mixed in drinks.
So why is Sea Moss on such a rise in the market, and what is the big deal about it? Can it actually help your health and increase your fertility? Keep reading to find out.
What is Sea Moss and where does it come from?
It’s basically a type of red algae, which grows in the water. The rocky coasts of the Atlantic Ocean both in Europe and North America are where this often-called “marine superfood” is the most abundant. It is called that, because of the immense list of ways it can improve how our bodies function (more than any other species of algae).
Caribbeans have been using it for years, and they’re finally letting the world in on their secrets.
Why is everyone crazy about the health benefits of Sea Moss?
The number one reason people love Sea Moss is that it offers benefits in a lot of different areas. Let’s name a few:
- Sea Moss is very rich in nutrients, specifically in pre-biotics, whose role is to help pro-biotics regulate the amount of healthy bacteria in your gut. When the two work together, the body’s digestive system works more smoothly and avoids problems like acid reflux or gas. You can find an explanation here, which focuses completely on why the gut loves Sea Moss.
- Sea Moss also has plenty of vitamins (Omega-3, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and Magnesium to name a few) that our skin cells can absorb. Thus, it slows down the skin’s aging process and aids acne issues.
- Out of 102 main minerals that we have in our bodies, Sea Moss contains around 92 of them! Yes, you read the right number. Their function is pretty self-explanatory – they promote the overall healthy functioning of the body.
- One of the minerals is Potassium, important for mental health, and mood enhancement.
- Another one is iron – that one works to regulate the number of red blood cells.
- A third one is iodine — it is essential for amplifying energy levels and metabolism, which means it helps with weight loss and faster recoveries from surgeries or joint pain. Oh, and also the immune system and better protection against allergies and the flu. I can keep going.
Finally, the benefit we are going to be focusing on today – Sea Moss may help support fertility. When trying to conceive, a little assistance will never be turned down. The even greater news is that Sea Moss may push the performance of both the man and the woman!
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s talk about how Sea Moss may help you both in the baby-making process.
Benefits for females (Ladies first, of course!)
The richness of iodine and selenium in Sea Moss (more than any other food or supplement in existence) can maintain the normal development of breast tissue as well as the development of the child’s brain and bones during pregnancy.
Here’s how it works scientifically:
We have something called the Thyroid gland, located in the neck and consisting of two lobes that are connected to each other. The Thyroid’s responsibility is to regulate hormone production.
An imbalance in those hormones can result in struggles with menstruation and fertility, depending on the affected hormone. A big percentage of women are diagnosed with Thyroid problems at an early age — and the root of them hides in the lack of iodine and selenium, which… you guessed it… is found in Sea Moss!
Even if you have no issues with your thyroid, who wouldn’t want to tip the scales in their direction a little bit more when they are trying to get pregnant?
If you want to tip them even further, make it a couple's activity and convince the future father to join in. There are plenty of health benefits for him as well.
Benefits for males
Gentlemen, here’s what it’s in it for you.
Sea Moss can help better the reproductive health of every guy in two important aspects – hormone balance and energy levels.
Male reproduction is largely impacted by one specific mineral – zinc. A supplementation of Sea Moss can influence levels of zinc in the man’s body and therefore, support his reproductive function.
Second, the abundance of other vitamins and antioxidants in this powerful red algae may further support sustained energy levels.
The question now is where can you buy this famous Sea Moss.
One more thing before you leave.
There’s a lot of questions about Sea Moss we don’t know the answers to yet, but most of what we do know already is based on generations of experience and seeing the positive outcomes for ourselves.
We may not know why it does everything that it does, but the countless health benefits have been reported by so many. Scientists are still in the beginning stages of researching and studying how Sea Moss works, so side effects are indeed possible.
The content of sea algae also varies depending on the season, as well as the time and location it was harvested. It may have a higher or lower level of the given vitamins/minerals than the recommended amount. That is why we recommend, before starting any new supplement, you talk to a doctor to see if Sea Moss is the right decision for you.
They can also give you more details on dosage, frequency, and the right form of Sea Moss suitable for your needs.
If you haven't already, I recommend you give our Sea Moss Capsules a try! They're both Organic and Vegan. The Sea Moss used to make them is even wild harvested from the Atlantic Ocean 🌊..
