Sea Moss Benefits

Sea moss, also known as Irish moss, is a type of seaweed used for centuries in traditional medicine and as a food source. Its history dates back to the 1800's when it was harvested along the rocky coasts of Ireland and used to make a gel-like substance added to soups, stews, and other dishes.

Sea moss is still used for its nutritional and health benefits, including its high levels of vitamins and minerals. Many people were facing starvation during the Great Famine in Ireland, also known as the Potato Famine. In response, some turned to eat sea moss, a type of seaweed found on the Irish coast. Sea moss was high in nutrients and helped people survive during this difficult time.

Today, sea moss is now considered a super-food for its numerous health benefits.  It can support your immune system, improve digestion, and promote healthy skin.
