Seaweed Beauty Benefits

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.

Seaweed also contains a wide variety of vitamins which include:

  • Vitamin A (beta-carotene)
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin K
  • Folic acid

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.
