Sea Moss, a type of seaweed, is a fantastic source of nutrition, rich in vitamins and minerals. The gel is great in smoothies and on cereal; my personal preference is as a yoghurt topper. The texture is light and the flavour is fairly neutral so it plays well with fruit, nuts, seeds or whatever floats your yoghurt topping boat. In addition to being a superfood, sea moss offers us a host of benefits during the perimenopause.
The Benefits of Eating Sea Moss
Sea moss has been touted for its potential health benefits which include:
- Sea moss is a good source of essential nutrients, including vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K, as well as minerals such as iodine, iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
- Sea moss contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that may help boost the immune system and fight off infection and disease.
- Sea moss is high in fibre, which may help regulate digestion and improve gut health.
- Sea moss is often used in skincare products due to its reported benefits for the skin. It contains collagen, which may help improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
- Sea moss is low in calories and high in fibre, which may help promote feelings of fullness and aid in weight loss efforts.
The Benefits of eating sea moss during the perimenopause.
Sea moss is a powerhouse seaweed that offers a plethora of health benefits, especially for women going through perimenopause. Its anti-inflammatory properties can help alleviate symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, and irregular periods, while also supporting immune health. Packed with 92 out of the 102 minerals our bodies need, as well as vitamins and antioxidants, sea moss can help improve energy levels, balance hormones, and promote healthy skin and hair. Best of all, it’s incredibly easy to incorporate into your daily routine – simply mix the gel into a smoothie or add it to your favourite dishes. For those living busy lifestyles, sea moss capsules are also available, making it easy to reap the benefits on the go.Simon – Pardasa
If, like me, you’re feeling saggy and wrinkly, sea moss can also be hugely beneficial to our skin. It:
- Hydrates the skin, reduces wrinkles, and minimise the signs of ageing
- Reduces the severity of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis
- Combat oily skin and shield yourself from weather-related issues like winter dryness
- Sea moss is rich in vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, and zinc. These nutrients are essential for skin health.
