Seaweed

 

Nutrient dense and iodine. 


One of the plants of the sea. It actually is a form of algae, a macro algae. It has been used for thousands of years by many cultures. We often think of it as an Asian food or as nori seaweed wrapped around sushi. Asians have included seaweed as food and has documented use for over 2000 years. 


Seaweed is nutrient dense and contains iodine which is useful for a good thyroid function. In costal areas where iodine rich foods are consumed from the sea, there is a significant lack of thyroid issues. These cultures have included Asia but also Iceland where the seaweed Palmaria is a popular snack food. 


In Europe, The Greeks and Romans used it as medicine and as animal fodder to help improve nutritional content of the animal’s diet. In Scotland and Ireland seaweed was used a fertilizer for growing vegetables and the practice still seen today. All documented texts and recorded practices show how seaweed was used for improving the nutrition of animals, soil and humans. 


We have included it in the NUDE BODY bar for its substantial amounts of nutrients that are readily available. By improving digestion with Chicory and Plantain in the NUDE BODY bar and by adding a nutrient dense substance such a seaweed, this should really help improve how your body feels and functions.
