Seagreens® are not conventional ‘nutritional supplements’, nor ‘superfoods’.
Neither should they be confused with kelp, a deep water seaweed properly called Laminaria, nor fresh water microalgæ like Spirulina and Chlorella, varieties of ‘blue-green algæ’.
The microalgae have quite different nutritional profiles, more like other land vegetables. Seagreens® contain a balance of all the micronutrients which are missing or hard to obtain from a land food diet.
Although the amount of Seagreens® eaten each day would be insufficient to live on by itself, daily use nevertheless ensures the continuous presence of small amounts of nutrients which may be absent from our agricultural soils.
Magnesium, for example, down by a quarter in land vegetables since 1940, is required for over 300 different daily enzyme reactions; zinc, down 59% in the same period, for more than 200; the list is long and hugely significant!
Seagreens® Wrack species typically have 8 times more magnesium and 100 times more iodine than any land vegetable, 14 times more calcium than cow’s milk, and more zinc than the average for the species.
Iron in farmed meat has decreased by more than 50% in the past 50 years and in land vegetables it is down by a quarter.
Seagreens® has more iron than the commonly known red seaweed Dulse, which itself has 200 times more iron than beet greens, the richest land vegetable.
A teaspoon of Seagreens® has more iron than a plate of broccoli (which has also lost 75% of its calcium since 1940) and contains special polysaccharides which help prevent bacteria (helicobacter pylori) and cancer-causing proteins from attaching to the lining of the colon.
For most of us therefore, Seagreens® can feed the foundation of our health on a daily basis.
Over the years we have received more than adequate confirmation from consumers and medical practitioners to know that in most cases, the results will include more consistent and available energy, better digestion and metabolism, stronger resistance to illness and faster recovery, and healthier hair and skin - and even eyesight!
