Irish Sea moss (Chestrus crispus), is a red seaweed found mostly along the Atlantic coasts of North America and Europe. It has been used in Ireland, Scotland, and Jamaica for many years. Some cultivated areas of Irish Moss are also available, which is mainly grown for its carrageenan content.
Sea moss is usually harvested in Ireland after the spring tides. With rakes, harvesters head out into shallow waters to remove the seaweed from the rocks. This is usually done by horseback or boat.
The seaweed is dried in the sun for two weeks before being packed. So it is simple, easy and convenient for consuming every day for healthy living.
Sea moss is now "rediscovered", so others can reap its benefits.
Sea moss contains mucilaginous Polysaccharide which is a sticky substance that plants produce and has health benefits. Recent studies have shown that sulfated polysaccharides, particularly sea moss, can be beneficial in boosting immunity and reducing oxidative stresses.
Sea moss can be purchased in a variety of forms, including dried, ground, and liquid. You can also buy sea moss as supplements. We suggest that sea moss can be added to your diet through whole foods rich in nutrients, not supplements which are not controlled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
