People have eaten seaweed, sometimes called “sea vegetables” for thousands of years. It is coming under more and more scientific scrutiny and what they are finding is pretty amazing. Chemically, seaweed has many similarities to the human body. The mixture of vitamins, minerals and trace elements found in seaweeds so closely resembles that of the human body that the minerals and other healing elements found in seaweed are easily absorbed through the skin and digestive tract and into the blood. Some people are beginning to believe seaweed alone is an almost perfect solution to many health woes.
