Seaweed or sea vegetables are forms of algae that grow in the sea. They’re a food source for ocean life (like sea turtles) and range in color from red to green to brown to black.
Seaweed varieties all contain high amounts of iodine which is known to support thyroid function. You can also count on getting your daily dose of vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately the state of our soil is in sad shape, even the most beautiful organic produce is now much more deficient in minerals than in years past. Which leads to mineral deficiencies in our bodies. I highly recommend incorporating more seaweed into your diet. Sprinkle some Kelp flakes onto your salad, add some Kombu to your soup, use Nori as a wrap instead of tortillas or make this tasty Wakame salad!!!
