Dulse and Kelp Seaweeds for Health

Kombu/Kelp
Kelp is
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.

Dulse
One
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
microbiological contaminants.

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
zinc.

Additional
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.

Heavy Metal and Radiation Cleansing

I am posting this to bring added awareness to what is already present. This post is meant to inform and educate not incite anxiety.

It is not uncommon to encounter heavy metals and radiation in our daily life. Our body is an amazing organism that is keen on maintaining balance under all circumstances, including in the presence of heavy metals and radiation.

Our bodies produce some of the most potent anti-oxidants in world. These compounds work to negate and support the cleansing of toxins, pollutants and free radicals.  And, the body could always use some extra support in its mission to keep our body and blood clean.  If you want to support your body in its mission of cleansing heavy metals and radiation consider supplementing you diet with the following  five food nutrients.

  1. Spirulina
  2. Chlorella
  3. Sea Veggies
  4. Cilantro
  5. Kidney Complex by Premier Research Labs
Spirulina:
This is one of the most nutrient dense foods available. Spirulina is rich in  70% protein by weight, contains bio available B12 & iron, high in dark pigment anti-oxidants and toxin binding compounds that help eliminate radioactive compounds from the body.

Chlorella:
Similar to spirulina, chlorella is a single cell algae, that is rich in proteins and dark pigment anti oxidants.  Chlorella is known to rapidly aid in repairing tissue and DNA/RNA due to the presence of Chlorella Growth Factor, a unique component to chlorella. CGF is a combination of proteins, peptides and vitamins.  Among these compounds is a heavy metal binding protein molecule, which is useful for binding to and clearing mercury from the body.

Sea Vegetables:
Another valuable nutrient dense food from the waters, sea vegetables contain alginates. These compounds which are naturally found in sea vegetables act as an absorbent and are particularly effective in absorbing lead and cadmium.

Cilantro:
This common herb is extremely effective at cleaning heavy metals from the body.  It works especially well to clean mercury from the body.  The best and easiest way to get these benefits is to consume the herb in its fresh state.  A few tablespoons a day in conjunction with a detox program to ensure the loosened metals are flushed from the body.

Kidney Complex by Premier Research Labs:
The kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood. As such they will be one of the organs most effected by heavy metals and radiation.  This supplement acts to support the kidneys while you are cleansing or it can be used as a general tonic to support kidney function.
At Zebra Organics we strive to bring you a range of quality products from trusted sources.  We stock a range of products from the ones listed above.  Of particular interest is the Spirulina/Chlorella combination tablets are powerful, convenient and easy to use.  And, they are on sale for $22.95 for 1,000 tablets!

As for the cilantro use fresh organic and/or garden grown cilantro.

Mineralize Your Self- Eat Wild Food

Wild foods are an excellent source of minerals that have been depleted from top soil around the world.  Wild food does not grow in rows and has not been tampered with by man. Wild food from the ocean is a great source of a complex of minerals hard to find in ‘land food’.  Sea vegetables are unique in the world of nutrition and the benefits they provide are incomparable to any other vegetable.
