The Superfoods in Nature’s Farmer Sea Sea Moss Gel and Their Benefits! - Part 2

Nature’s Farmer Sea Sea Moss gel is a health powerhouse, brimming with minerals, vitamins, and nutrients that enhance various aspects of well-being. Likewise, the medicinal herbs infused within the Sea Moss gel blends have the potential to synergistically amplify the effects of Sea Moss, while offering remarkable health benefits of their own. 

Blue Tongue Wizard  

Within this blend, lemon myrtle and blue spirulina combine to provide sustained energy and a range of health benefits. Blue spirulina, renowned for its vibrant blue colour, is a powerhouse in the health and wellness sector. Its key compound, C-phycocyanin, exhibits potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Moreover, it possesses antiplatelet, hepatoprotective, and cholesterol-lowering effects, making it a staple in promoting cardiovascular health and overall well-being. Additionally, lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) contributes to this blend with its remarkable medicinal properties. Rich in antioxidants and antimicrobial compounds, such as flavonoids (quercetin and hyperin) and citronellal-rich oil, lemon myrtle is a potent carminative, spasmolytic and immune modulating herb that enhances vitality. Its affinity for the immune system helps combat bacterial and fungal infections, contributing to overall health and resilience while its invigorating citrus aroma uplifts mood and promotes mental clarity and focus.  

Green Warrior 

If you’re after the ultimate immune-boosting ally, this Sea Moss blend should be top of your list! This blend contains potent immune modulation herbs such as echinacea (Echinacea spp.), nettle (Urtica dioica ), lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) and rosehip (Rosa canina  L.). Echinacea is renowned for its ability to support the immune system, particularly in times of illness or stress. Its active compounds, including alkamides, polysaccharides, and flavonoids, work synergistically to enhance immune function by stimulating the production of white blood cells and promoting the activity of immune cells such as macrophages and

natural killer cells. Echinacea is commonly used to prevent and treat respiratory infections, colds, and flu, as well as to support overall immune health.  

Nettle is another powerful immune-supporting herb with a rich history of traditional use. Its active compounds, including flavonoids, polyphenols, and lectins, possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunomodulatory properties. Nettle is particularly effective at modulating the immune response and reducing inflammation, making it beneficial for conditions such as allergies, autoimmune disorders, and arthritis. Additionally, nettle is rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and iron, which further support immune function and overall health. Within modern scientific herbal medicine, nettle is more known for its affinity with the male urinary tract, providing symptomatic treatment of lower urinary tract disorders (nocturia, polyuria, urinary retention) resulting from BPH. 

Rosehip, derived from the fruit of the wild rose species Rosa canina L., is prized for its high vitamin C content and potent antioxidant properties. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in immune function, helping to strengthen the body's defences against infections and illnesses. In addition to vitamin C, rosehip contains other bioactive compounds such as carotenoids, flavonoids, and phenolic acids, which contribute to its immune-boosting effects. Rosehip is commonly used to prevent and treat colds, flu, and respiratory infections, as well as to support skin health and promote collagen production.
