Each year, millions of tons of seaweed are harvested for industrial, agriculture and food purposes. These salt-water algae are loaded with numerous essential minerals and vitamins, including a relatively rare, but important element called iodine. They also provide gums and mucilage that have soothing and detoxifying effects. Salt-water algae and their fresh-water cousins are also great sources of complete protein. Read all about the health benefits of both salt and fresh water algae in this issue of Sunshine Sharing. Supplements that support your body from the sea include Kelp, Liquid Dulse, and Super Algae.
