Micronutrients and macronutrients

Micronutrients
Micronutrients are those vitamins and minerals required in very small quantities in ourbodies which are essential for a number of different functions,including growth and development. Despite requiring only trace amounts, micronutrient deficiencies are widespread, affecting approximately 2 billion people worldwide, the equivalent of a third of the world’s population. Seagreens® provide almost the entire spectrum ofmicronutrients.

Soil overuse and food processing take their toll of micronutrients, but in any case Nature cannot replenish micronutrients which thousands of years of settled agriculture have further leached from the earth. Once the micronutrient gaps in our diet are filled, we are better able to obtain and metabolise the major nutrients (macronutrients) available from a good, varied diet.


It can be said that a comprehensive foundation of micronutrients is the key to daily health, since many are not produced in the body and must be obtained from our food - yet so much of our land grown and manufactured foods are already deficient in or devoid of them.

Seagreens® also contain small amounts of almost all the ‘macronutrients’, but too much seaweed would have to be eaten to obtain all that we need. So a daily variety of different kinds of foods - cereals, beans, leaf vegetables, fruits, nuts an so on - provides a much better and much tastier source!

Nevertheless, Seagreens® remain a comprehensive, balanced source of macronutrients, and just like themicronutrients, will help you make the most of the other foods you eat.

“Seagreens® Food Capsules have proved verybeneficial. My husband and I can certainly tell the difference for nottaking any for a while, which was a good test. Our dog has alsobenefitted from Seagreens® Pet Granules while recovering from asprained leg. He has more energy and better weight. We have noticedthat his digestion is not so good when we stop giving him the granules.”

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. And don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognise as food”
