'Tis the Season to Season with Seaweed!
Avoid extra excess: choose seaweed over salt
Almost everyone is guilty of overeating at this time of year. However, more often than not, it's more than just extra calories you're consuming - it's also extra salt.
Did you know that seaweed is a fantastic alternative to salt? Seaweed tastes salty but it has a much lower sodium chloride content than table salt, plus loads of extra vitamins and minerals making it a great natural swap.
How salt affects your body
- Salt works on your kidneys to make your body hold on to more water.
- This extra stored water raises your blood pressure and puts strain on your kidneys, arteries, heart and brain.
