Life began in the sea. The surface of the earth is mainly made up of oceans, which are home to the oldest and most diverse forms of life. Thus, the marine environment is the treasure of biological and chemical diversity among all types of ecosystems. A wide variety of living organisms, from bacteria to eukaryotes, are found there, as well as unique chemical compounds that are of great importance to medicine, nutrition, cosmetics, agriculture and other industries.

The benefits of seaweed:

The vitamins, minerals, and all the other good natural chemicals found in seaweed have many health benefits for humans, without the huge side effects that drugs can have.

The oils in seaweed have long been known to help recover from illness by detoxifying the body and promoting the renewal of damaged skin cells.

Seaweed contains carotenoids and polyphenols which have been shown to be powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants help the body fight off free oxygen radicals that damage cells and cause aging and disease.

The iodine present in seaweed is essential for the thyroid gland to regulate the body’s metabolism.

Seaweed has been used as an effective external treatment for conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis and acne.

In summary, seaweed can be used for internal and external treatments of the body. The good thing is that it’s all about pure goodness, without the nasty elements, and no animals suffered in lab tests.

Seaweed has many uses: you can eat it dried (in salads and hot dishes), or take it as a dietary supplement in the form of capsules, or use it in cosmetic products such as creams, shampoos, after – shampoos, soaps, massage oils…

The benefits of sea lettuce:


Sea lettuce, along with other sea vegetables, is extremely popular in Okinawa, Japan. The Okinawa Centenarian Study found that Okinawans are 82% less likely than the average American to suffer from coronary heart disease. She attributed this longevity in part to eating these mineral-rich sea vegetables.

Liver health:

Sea lettuce contains natural photosynthetic pigments that give it its beautiful green color. It has a high concentration of a-chlorophyll, b-chlorophyll, xanthophylls, lutein, beta and gamma carotene, siphonxanthin and siphonein.

Chlorophyll is able to preserve healthy cells and tissues in our body by strengthening phase II biotransformation enzymes. These encourage optimal liver health and therefore the natural elimination of potentially harmful toxins from the body.

Eye health:

Sea lettuce is extremely high in vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene and gamma-carotene, compounds that have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.

One of the first symptoms of a deficiency in this important vitamin is “night blindness,” or nyctalopia. In addition, vitamin A maintains the integrity of mucous membrane cells, including those of the eyes.

Sea lettuce also contains lutein, which is known to be good for eye health by reducing free radical damage to eye cells.

Seaworm oxygen-saving technology could preserve organs before transplants

A French biotech company has discovered and developed a product that is currently being tested for use in human transplants. The product, called “Hemo to Life”, is created from a sea worm, scientifically known as Arenicola marina. This organism, some 450 million years old, can survive several hours without oxygen under the sand of the ocean. Scientists have identified in the worm a special hemoglobin molecule capable of stabilizing oxygen 40 times more than human hemoglobin. The company is looking to use this feature to deliver more oxygen to transplanted organs during surgery.
