PROERTIES OF SEAWEED:
Rich in vitamins, proteins, mineral salts, algae are an alternative plant to eat healthy and complete. Algae are foods naturally rich in iodine, which is essential for the organism’s development, as it helps the production of thyroid hormones.
- Algae Nori help lower cholesterol, prevent cardiovascular disease;
the most seaweed rich in protein, also an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, folic acid and omega 3 fatty acids are present in vitamins A, B1 and B3, as well as minerals such as iron, calcium and taurine, useful because it helps to combat cholesterol.
- Kombu seaweed protect the brain and defend the body against chronic diseases;
has a low calorie intake. It is rich in potassium, laminaria, alginates and iodine. The alginic acid is not digested, but it is a great for cleansing the bowel. If used regularly it helps stimulate metabolism, improves blood circulation, regulates blood pressure and helps drainage and detoxification. Kombu seaweed is rich in glutamic acid, the original version of that natural flavoring substance that is monosodium glutamate also present in nuts kitchen. It also has some value protein not present in general in vegetables. The kombu seaweed also contains two simple sugars: glucose and mannitol important for diabetics because they do not elevate the level of glucose in the blood.
- Wakame seaweed is precious for hair, nails and skin, as it is rich in calcium, vitamin C and B vitamins, as well as magnesium and iron.
Wakame is the richest source of protein, with an average content of 3.16 grams per pound of product. The amino acid profile and indexes of protein quality are good: the wakame contains all the essential amino acids, which account for 47.1% to the total protein content. The limiting amino acid is tryptophan; This makes the Wakame a source of protein to complement traditional sources of vegetable protein, such as legumes and cereals.
- The seaweed Dulse is a good supplement to overcome fatigue; Klamath microalgae are rich in vitamins, amino acids and Omega 3. The algae is high in vitamins B, and it also supplies a lot of fiber and a comparatively large amount of protein.Dulse is an edible alga which grows widely along the shorelines of the North Atlantic. It has been harvested as a source of food for thousands of years, and continues to be popular in Northern Ireland, Iceland, and parts of Canada.
- Spirulina, a tiny green spiral algae has been discovered by scientists of nutrition about 30 years ago, the interesting aspect of spirulina is its endowment in terms of nutrients fondamentaliper the proper functioning of the organism, such as beta carotene, vegetable protein, acids essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, phycocyanin, iron. Spirulina is also rich in amino acids and contains around 65% of protein as well as a fatty acid called GLA (gamma linoleic acid). Spirulina contains all amino acids: omega 3, 6 and 9, but it’s especially rich in omega-3 fatty acids. It also has tons of iron – a mineral essential for the overall health, especially for the red blood cells creation. What spirulina is most famous for though is its high content of chlorophyll which acts as an immune system boost and it removes the toxic compounds from our body. It has many other nutrients such as minerals, vitamins etc. For example, it has thiamin (B1), pyridoxine (B6), riboflavin (B2), nicotinamide (B3), folic acid (B9) etc. and vitamins D, A, E and C. There are many minerals as well: calcium, potassium, iron, chromium, copper, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, selenium etc.
Around the anticancer properties of algae exists an open debate for some time.
