Why is seaweed so nutritious?

Seaweed contains a unique combination of all 56 vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and trace elements essential for human health, absorbed directly from sunlight and the ocean: a truly natural, pure superfood.

The harmonious balance of elements in seaweed makes it more nutritionally potent than any land vegetable. The nutrients enable each other to perform at their best. For example, calcium needs potassium and magnesium for natural absorption: seaweed is high in both. Iron is also more easily used by the body in the presence of vitamin C, and guess what? Seaweed contains both.

Because the nutrients in seaweed are present in their natural form, they’re readily absorbed and processed. That’s why eating seaweed is nutritionally superior to taking supplements – and of course, it’s tastier too!
