Parties, long hours at work and the pressure of getting everything ready in time for Christmas can really take a toll on our energy levels and our immune systems. Two nutrients that are found in seaweed and help to keep our energy levels up when we are on the go are iron and vitamin C! Iron is essential for the production of haemoglobin and energy production in cells and vitamin C has antiviral and antibacterial action, helping you fight off winter bugs.
What is really interesting is that vitamin C and iron actually work in synergy with one another as vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron. Therefore, the vitamin C in seaweed really comes in handy to make sure our bodies are absorbing as much of that energy-producing iron as possible!
Vitamin C is also a water-soluble vitamin so that means our bodies cannot store it. Because of this, it is important to make sure that your levels are being topped up constantly. A couple of shakes of our dulse every day on your food is a great way to keep you in the Christmas spirit!
