also known as “wild atlantic kombu”. The main benefit of this
sea vegetable is its rich content of minerals particularly iodine. Kelp is a natural source of this essential thyroid metabolism
regulating mineral. Kelp is also rich in the anti
oxidant compound fucoxanthin. Fucoxanthin assists the body with fat
metabolism, thus it may aid with weight loss.
Kelp contains a wide variety of vitamins and trace minerals, making it one of the most nutrient dense and useful foods to consume. Kelp contains the vitamins A, B, C and D as well as the harder to get Vitamins E and K. Kelp is an excellent source for trace minerals and iodine, it also supplies the body with protiens and fiber. There are special compounds in Kelp which help it to cleanse radioactive and heavy metal particles from the body and blood.
of my personal favorites of the sea vegetable varieties is Dulse. Like
nori, dulse can be eaten straight out of the package making a quick
healthy snack. It is exceptionally tasty and contains many of the same
benefits as other seaweeds: rich in minerals, protein dense, good source
of iodine, healing and cleansing aliginate compounds. Its deep red
color and soft texture make it a great addition to soups and salads.
Dulse is hand-harvested from remote Gulf of Maine bays at the peak
of nutrition and taste (early summer to early fall.) All of the Dulse
products from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables undergo annual OCIA organic inspection for handling and
harvesting, as well as voluntary testing for heavy metal, chemical and
Dulse is rich in the following nutrients: Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, calcium, chromium, cobalt, iodine, iron,
lutein, manganese, magnesium, niacin, phosphorous, potassium,
riboflavin, selenium, silicon, sodium, vitamin C, zeaxanthin, and
benefits of consuming sea vegetables is their ability to bind to heavy
metals and radio active particles and safely help your body remove
them. It is safe to say that nearly everyone can benefit from
adding these miracles of the sea to their diet. To make that easier for
our customers we are running a sale on all Maine Coast Sea Vegetables, now is a good time to stock up and save.
