When you’re trying to eat healthily, it’s hard balancing an ideal life with real life. The school run interferes with the park run and frothy coffee is more appealing than crispy kale. So it can be tempting to cut corners. But there’s one sacrifice you don’t have to make: health supplements.
If you’re taking vitamins or tablets, consider a daily dose of seaweed in your diet instead. The body absorbs nutrients more easily from food than pills and it takes just one teaspoon of seaweed in your meals each day to get a natural boost of vitamins and minerals. Plus it’s safe for all the family - and that includes the dog!

7 reasons to switch from supplements to seaweed
1. Keep colds at bay with Vitamin B12, which helps your immune system.
2. Stay strong: seaweed is packed with protein for healthy, growing muscles.
3. Smile! Seaweed contains calcium, great for healthy teeth (and bones).
4 Stop yawning: seaweed is loaded with iron, which helps move oxygen around your body.
5. Keep calm with potassium, which maintains normal blood pressure.
6. Stay alert: seaweed contains magnesium, which helps your nervous system function
So forget pills - you only need ONE teaspoon of seaweed (1-2g) for ALL these health benefits!
***Always consult your doctor before ceasing medication or making major changes to your diet.***
