Oceans make up about 70 percent of our planet, so it’s only natural that holistic hidden treasures live beyond the shore. Seaweed, for instance, absorbs nutrients from the seabed, making the marine vegetable packed with even more nutrients and vitamins than mainland-grown fruits and veggies.
Lately, we’ve been noticing the unlikely superfood popping up everywhere: in our drinks, meals and even our skincare. The salty snack is popular in plant-based diets, as it is a unique vegan source of essential amino acids. Meanwhile, seaweed is an abundant, carbon-negative food source (meaning it doesn’t require water or fertilizer to harvest), so it's ideal for eco-conscious consumers. If you’re still not convinced about adding seaweed to more than just your sushi rolls, read on for its potent benefits—plus easy ways to incorporate into your everyday routine.
