A good seaweed supply into our diet could make you feel more energetic throughout the day, replacing coffee and energy drinks, a University of Texas study suggests.
One cup of coffee, two cups of coffee, three cups … this is what we usually do to stay focused throughout the day. It is commonly thought that caffeine may negatively affect health, but Doctor Seaweed is a big a coffee fan as are many. As such, I’m not saying that coffee is bad for you, I just think seaweed is better!
Energy drinks are also considered to be another solution to fight sluggishness. However, sugar is the main component of any energy drink, which can boost your energy but for a short period of time only. Apart from that the amount of sugar in various energy drinks sometimes is seen as ”unhealthy”.
So what about taking a closer look at seaweed if you are tired? Seaweed could recharge and boost your energy with lasting impact.
How does seaweed work?
As I wrote about last week, seaweed is a rich, and natural source of iodine (1 teaspoon of our seaweed contains as much iodine as 12 mackerels). Iodine helps maintain the necessary amount of the thyroid hormones, which regulates metabolism. In fact, our Hebridean Ascophyllum Seaweed allows a EU Approved Health Claim stating it contributes to a high energy yielding metabolism.
Another benefit of seaweed nutrition is the iron content. Iron is another much needed mineral to help with energy levels, and contributes to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue. Seaweed, as part of your balanced diet, can help you reach the 8 milligrams of iron required daily for men, or 18 milligrams for women and avoid energy levels decrease.
I know seaweed might seem strange to some at first glance, but there are plenty of recipes out there and great products with seaweed adding nutrition and seaweed replacing salt.
