Vegan wonder food

We found a breakdown of how seaweed is a wonder food for a vegan diet on and thought it would be good to share.

"Since vegan eaters don’t eat fish, getting certain nutrients like omega-3s, iodine, vitamin B12, calcium, and magnesium can sometimes be a bit challenging. That’s where seaweed comes to the rescue!

Here are 10 amazing things seaweed can do for you and why it’s essential to a vegan diet:

  1. Provides the body with magnesium, zinc, vitamin B12, biotin, and iron.
  2. Just one gram of seaweed provides your entire day’s worth of iodine, a critical mineral for the thyroid.
  3. Increases hair and nail growth.
  4. Clears the skin and enhances eyesight.
  5. Improves mood by reducing anxiety and enhancing mental focus.
  6. Prevents anemia and fatigue.
  7. Cleanses the digestive tract.
  8. Alkalizes the blood.
  9. Prevents and treats sugar cravings.
  10. May prevent depression."
