Arctic Fresh Seaweed
Seaweed is the most nutritious plant in the world
This unique wild wrack seaweed grows in the crystal clear Arctic water among remote conservation islands over 60 miles from the coast of northern Norway. It is hand-harvested, air dried and immediately milled.
They grow short, thick and exceptionally nutritious due to the continuous turbulence of the ocean. The seaweed continues to grow so the marine environment is unharmed. Seagreens is Europe’s only Soil Association certified product. Seagreens is pure seaweed and contains 3 different varieties of wrack, not found in any other seaweed product.
- Contains all the micro-nutrients missing from processed food and depleted soil
- It contains over 100 vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids and valuable compounds
- Just enough iodine to regulate the thyroid and metabolism. Lack of iodine often cause a feeling of fatigue
- Virtually fat-free and low in calories
- Not an instant therapy to treat symptoms. Rather it prevents them by taking it over a long period
- Strengthening immunity, resistance and recovery
- Improves skin, hair, nails and circulation
Seagreens Culinary Ingredient
Small chopped pieces of Seagreens® native wild Wrack seaweed Pelvetia canaliculata, whose composition and health benefits Seagreens has studied and documented for over two decades. Pelvetia is unusual, for half the time growing out of the water, hence its common name Channel Wrack – it holds sea water inside its holdfast at low tide. Nothing added or extracted. In our view this is the seaweed, even for infants and children, with an exceptional balance of all the micronutrients. Non-allergenic. Safe in permanent daily use. Per gram it has lower iodine at around 200µg (66µg uptake), higher essential fatty acids with an ideal 3:1 ratio between Omega 6 and 3, good EPA and DHA in the Omega 3 (though additional DHA might be advised in ADHD), and 2,783µg of Omega 9 for immunity, insulin resistance, cardiovascular health, and stress. To cap it all, it provides an almost equal amount of ALA (Alpha-linolenic acid 269.6µg) and EPA (Eicosapentenoic acid 269.82µg). It also has a mild taste. As many children have shown, even before they can speak, it can be eaten just as it is! Beat that.
Pelvetia has an unusual composition. Omega fatty acids are 3 times higher than our other native species, with an ideal ratio that makes it good brain food; low in iodine so it’s ideal even for children; an effective prebiotic ideal for digestion; and rich in antioxidants for intestinal cleansing and blood circulation. With comprehensive minerals and trace elements and a little of every nutrient group, it safely fills all the gaps in a daily diet.
How To Use
In almost any food, from breakfast muesli to a stir fry, pasta topping to vegetable salad, Pelvetia has a mild flavour so these pieces can be eaten as they are, slightly chewy, or left in cold water for a few minutes to soften. Half a jar (25 grams) can be left for an hour in a litre jug of cold water, with squeezed quartered lemon, grated ginger roots and 4 teaspoons or T-bags of green tea, then strained out into a new jug to drink or keep in a fridge for up to 3 weeks – a deliciously clean, very high antioxidant drink with a serious nutrient profile! It can be sweetened if required with a little pure apple or grape juice.
