The Amazing Array of Sea Vegetables’ Health-Giving Properties

The Amazing Array of Sea Vegetables’ Health-Giving Properties

October 07, 2019

 Sea-Vegetables Powder is one of the powders I use every single day.   I put about ½ to 1 teaspoon in our morning soup right after I turn the heat down as the broth comes to a rolling boil.  Generally, when people talk about the benefits of eating sea vegetables, they focus on their rich source of iodine and minerals. Although that is certainly true, it turns out many other reasons exist for consuming a variety of sea vegetables every day. 

 

Sprinkle our Sea-Vegetables Powder over buttered popcorn for an easy and healthy snack.

First, sea vegetables are one of the few readily available truly wild foods.   Our Sea-Vegetables Powder is a blend of wild-harvested dulse, wakame and kelp from off the coase of Maine. It has been tested and found free of radiation and other common contaminants.  Dulse, otherwise known as red algae, is a traditional food that has been used in European cuisine for at least 1,500 years and shows up in manuals dating back to 600 B.C. on feeding the kings of China to ensure their longevity. Besides being rich in iodine and other minerals such as chromium – used by the body to regulate blood sugar — dulse is also a valuable and rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, often missing from western diets. 

Wakame, which pares well with miso, is known for its abundance of fucoxanthin, which helps prevent and treat obesity.  It seems to do this by lowering harmful levels of fat in the blood.   Kelp is known for many things, but, perhaps most important, it contains sodium alginate, which lowers the absorption of radiation from the gut by 50 to 60 percent. 

Seaweed, a truly wild food, therefore supports thyroid function, helps us achieve our optimal weight, counteracts the damaging affects of radiation exposure, and supplies us with valuable essential fatty acids — all in a package that enhances the flavor of almost any dish.  Our Sea-Vegetables Powder makes the often messy process of cooking with sea vegetables into something as simple as sprinkling a powder into or over a favorite dish.

 

Be well,

On the day after Thanksgiving, I invite us to connect once again with gratitude for the wonderful food we all shared yesterday, as well as for the farmers who grew this food for us.  One of our goals at Dr. Cowan’s Garden is to help small farms become Demeter-certified (the organization that certifies biodynamic farms).  This not only supports the Demeter label world wide, but it also ensures that the farms that supply our produce maintain the highest standards possible.
