What is Sea Moss? The Benefits You Need to Know

If you’ve found yourself scrolling TikTok for the latest wellness trends, you’ll know Sea Moss has been making waves. But what actually is this trending ingredient? What are the benefits of Sea Moss, and is it worth the hype when it comes to our health? Let’s dive in.

What is Sea Moss?

Sea Moss is a type of algae. It’s nutrient-dense, full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to support different areas of our health, from immunity to energy. It grows along the Atlantic coastline between North America and Europe, and comes in a rainbow of colours: including gold, red, purple and green.

Classed as a superfood, there are many benefits of Sea Moss floating around online, largely down to its natural nutritional content. For example, Sea Moss contains double the amount of potassium as a banana. It’s also full of antioxidants, which support the body by fighting damaging free radicals (unstable atoms that can lead to illness and signs of ageing).

After going viral on TikTok, popping up in health stores and being mixed in the Kardashians’ smoothies, Sea Moss is now tipped to be one of the biggest wellness trends of 2024. It’s officially the ingredient everyone wants to try in their routine.

How can I try Sea Moss?

As popular as it is, this trending seaweed can be hard to come by in its natural form. It’s also not the most appetising treat. As you might expect from a type of algae, Sea Moss has a naturally slimy texture and salty taste.

If you’re looking for an easier and more palatable way to get your fix, Sea Moss Wellness Gummies are the way to go. Taking two gummies daily will deliver 500mg of Sea Moss in a juicy apple-flavoured gummy. All the benefits, without feeling like you’ve swallowed a mouthful of seawater.

What are the benefits of Sea Moss Gummies?

Along with Irish Sea Moss, which is naturally nutritionally dense, the Sea Moss Gummies are formulated with a cocktail of vitamins and minerals to boost daily wellbeing. Here’s what else you’ll find in our supercharged formula.

For an energy boost: Vitamin C

This multi-tasking vitamin covers a lot of ground when it comes to your health. It enhances collagen production for smoother, brighter skin. It reduces tiredness and maintains the normal function of the immune system to support energy levels. It also contributes to normal cognitive function, which supports long-term brain health. The ultimate all-rounder.

For muscle maintenance: Vitamin D

Most of us living in the UK need to supplement vitamin D. Known as ‘the sunshine vitamin’, it’s naturally produced on our skin when exposed to sunlight. Which means, in the darker winter months, many of us become deficient. Vitamin D is essential for normal muscle function, supporting strong bones (by improving calcium absorption) and bolstering natural immunity. The wellness gummies deliver 100% of your recommended daily dose.

For brain support: Iodine

Iodine is a mineral naturally found in soil and seawater. The body needs it to make thyroid hormones, which control our metabolism to transform food into energy. Aside from helping the thyroid gland produce essential hormones, iodine also contributes to normal cognitive and neurological function, and keeps skin healthy by supporting natural cell regeneration.

The full lowdown on taking Sea Moss

If you’ve still got questions about adding Sea Moss to your daily health routine, we’ve got all the answers.

Can I take Sea Moss every day?

Yes, you can! Two Sea Moss Wellness Gummies contain 500mg, the perfect amount to support your daily wellbeing. As with all vitamins and minerals, it's important not to exceed the recommended dose of Sea Moss. As it’s naturally high in iodine, taking too much can affect thyroid function.

What is the best form of Sea Moss to take?

You might see Sea Moss being sold as a gel, which can be added to smoothies or other recipes in your kitchen. But we think it’s easier - and less messy! - to take in gummy form to get the benefits of sea moss. That way, you know exactly the amount you’re getting in every dose (and it tastes better, too!). Keep a jar on your bedside table to remember to take two daily.

What does Sea Moss taste like?

Unsurprisingly, Sea Moss doesn’t have the most appetising taste. It's said to be a mix of earthy, salty, and a little fishy. If this flavour profile isn’t doing it for you, you might prefer to try Sea Moss in supplement form with our Sea Moss Wellness Gummies, which come in a juicy apple flavour.
