Keep Energised This Winter with Edible Seaweed
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 immune systems.
But there are two nutrients, both found in seaweed, which can help to keep our energy levels up when we're on the go: 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 to fight off winter bugs.
What's really interesting is that vitamin C and iron actually work in synergy with one another. Vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron, so the vitamin C in seaweed comes in really handy to make sure our bodies can use as much of that energy-producing iron as possible.
Vitamin C is also a water-soluble vitamin, which means our bodies can't store it. Because of this, it's important to make sure that your levels are constantly topped up to maintain a healthy immune system. So shaking Dulse onto your food everyday is a great way to keep you in the Christmas spirit!
