BEAUTY BENEFITS OF SEAWEED
Seaweeds contain algal polyphenols and carotenoids which have been proven to be strong antioxidants.
Antioxidants are compounds that protect against cell damage inflicted by molecules called oxygen-free radicals, which are a major cause of disease and aging. Like beta carotene and vitamins C and E, polyphenols protects the cells in your body from an unstable form of oxygen called a free radical. The antioxidant combines with the free radical to prevent it from attaching to and damaging the cells in your body.
Seaweeds draw from the sea an incomparable wealth of mineral elements, macro-elements and trace elements. The mineral fraction of some seaweeds accounts for up to 36% of dry matter.
Compared to most plants, seaweed contains a number of extraordinary amino acids and essential fatty acids.
