Everything You Need to Know About the Benefits Of Sea Moss

Sea Moss: Nature’s most nutrient-dense powerhouse

According to archaeologists, Sea Moss, specifically Chondrus Crispus (Irish Moss), has been used for its powerful healing benefits for approximately 14,000 years dating back to 600 BC. 

Sea Moss was especially crucial during the Irish Potato Famine in the 1800s when people needed to supplement vital nutrients to survive. Back then, the Irish believed this naturally growing algae would cure sick calves, human colds & flus, and congestion. 

Today, the sea moss benefits are widely recognised and appreciated worldwide. This nutrient-rich seaweed offers natural properties that nourish both the body and mind.

What is Sea Moss?

Sea Moss is a sea vegetable that comes in Gold, Purple, Green and Red varieties. Due to its wide range of health benefits, Sea Moss is primarily used by humans as a natural supplement.

Found in both, tropical and colder oceans, Sea Moss is an edible sea plant and can be likened to other one’s humans consume like seaweed, algae and other leafy vegetables such as kelp. Sea Moss is an algae but actually looks a lot more like seaweed.

Each variety is potent, pure and reported to contain a multitude of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids our bodies need to function at optimal levels, including vitamin A, B, C, E and minerals like Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, Selenium, Potassium, Iodine and Calcium to name a few. 

There are three main types of Sea Moss species: Eucheuma Cottonii, Gracilaria, and Chondrus Crispus (Irish Moss), all of which are closely related with similar benefits but slightly different tastes. 

We find that the darker the moss, the stronger the flavour is.

Many people begin incorporating Sea Moss Gel into their daily diet as it may contain properties that can help aid in weight loss. Although it can’t be labelled as a direct, standalone way of losing weight, Sea Moss contains multiple properties that may aid in: 

- Regulating your appetite
- Influencing your fat metabolism 
- Modulating your guts good bacteria 

Sea Moss may help regulate your appetite by helping increase your feeling of fullness when eating. This is primarily because of the naturally occurring carrageenan that seamoss contains, which is not to be confused with poligeenan. 

Although carrageenan and poligeenan are completely different, carrageenan is a natural substance found in seaweed whilst poligeenan isn’t found in nature at all. Prior to 1988 misinformation led people to name poligeenan degraded carrageenan, causing the confusion around carrageenan. 

Poligeenan doesn’t have the same weight controlling benefits as carrageenan and in fact is used for medical imaging and isn’t consumed in food at all.

Sea Moss Shelf Life

Our Sea Moss is all natural and free from preservatives, artificial flavours, colours, fillers, stabiliser and any other added nasties. 

This is what makes our Sea Moss gels so good for you. They are as close to nature as intended and that's why lots clients are reporting many different benefits. 

Due to our gels being all natural, they have a natural healthy shelf life; we put a 4 week best before date on our jars. Please keep in mind a “best before” is different to an “expiry date”.

Think of Sea Moss gel as organic fruit and veg! Super healthy and clean but not going to last 6 months. 

Here are some great ways to ensure a longer Shelf Life: 

- Use a clean dry spoon every time 
- No fingers in the jars 
- Freeze Sea Moss gel in ice cube trays when getting closer to the best before date (don’t freeze in the glass jars). It will last for up to 3 months. 

If you stick to the recommended daily dosage of 2 tablespoons per day you will get through the jars in roughly: 

375ml – 1 week 

500ml – 10 – 14 days 

750ml – 3 weeks 

1 litre – 4 weeks
