ABOUT THE MINDFUL INGREDIENTS:
IRISH MOSS | Commonly referred to as 'seamoss' is a nutrient dense algae. Hailed as a nutritional powerhouse, irish moss has been included as part of the human diet for thousands of years in places such as the Caribbean and in Ireland where it was used as a poverty food during the 19th century Irish potato famines. Irish moss has been used medicinally for decades to assist with varying health issues especially those relating to nutritional deficiencies. Irish moss is made up of 92 of the 102 minerals needed by the human body. It is a key source of essential nutrients such as Iron, Iodine, Potassium, Selenium, Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus and Zinc. ---When it comes to medicinal benefits, irish moss surpasses all other algaes. It is a high source of iodine which offers immense benefits for thyroid health. Irish moss is packed with Potassium Chloride which offers powerful decongestant properties that dissolves mucus in the colon, lymphatic system and the respiratory system. As a healthy source of fiber, irish moss benefits digestive health by promoting regular bowel movements and by naturally soothing the mucus membrane which coats our intestines.
