Sea moss is packed with protein, fiber, magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, calcium, iron, and beta-carotene; the nutrients the body needs to function. Our body is made up of 102 essential minerals, sea moss contains 92 of them! I began using sea moss a month ago, and I feel energized and focused.
The benefits of sea moss make it more appealing to try. Sea moss fights inflammation and bloating, and promotes thyroid, mental, and digestive health. Because it is known to have antiviral and antibacterial properties, sea moss is a great source of boosting the immune system. It also improves metabolism, promotes weight loss, and suppresses appetite helping to eliminate cravings.
Sea moss is great for recovery from muscle and joint pain, and improves circulation by filtering out germs and bacteria during blood circulation. Sexual dysfunction? Sea moss can help! Due to the high content of zinc and other minerals, sea moss helps promote sexual health and sex drive.
For men, sea moss has been known to increase stamina and erection, increasing sex drive and boosting testosterone. Sea moss has also been known to soothe the scalp, enhance shine, and strengthen hair.
With all those amazing benefits for the body, sea moss does just as much for the skin. Sea moss has been used to soothe skin conditions like sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. It is used topically as a skin toner and mask. Oscar award-winning actress Monique swears by it, using it on her skin and food. Used as a mask, sea moss tightens, softens, and pulls toxins from the face, leaving you with healthier-looking skin, immediately.
I recently started doing sea moss masks a few times a week. The first time I didn’t apply it well enough so it was grainy on my face. I left it on for two minutes and still got great results. Once you apply the sea moss to your face, you immediately feel your skin tightening. I don’t have the best skin and I don’t have the worst skin, but I do see the improvement sea moss contributes to my skin with a healthy and balanced diet.
Here are some common questions you may have:
How to consume sea moss? Most people blend it in their smoothies or oatmeal. I personally use it every day in my morning smoothie or acai bowl.
How long does sea moss last? Once blended, you can keep it in a mason jar for about 2 weeks.
Where do I buy sea moss and how much does it make? I get my sea moss from the health food store, but you can purchase it on Amazon, Instagram, or other websites. I advise you to do your research before purchasing.
One bag of sea moss (that I bought) lasted a month. I was able to blend two 8-ounce mason jars full of sea moss, as well as a small container for my skin. Each jar can last up to 2 weeks depending on how much your use daily.
