Most days you’ll find me with something containing some Sea Moss. It has quickly become one of my favorite additions in my food, beverage and even in my beauty routine.

It helps to improve recovery time and provides valuable nutrients and minerals to keep them strong. Raw Sea Moss is also great for general health, nutrition and it’s healing effects on the digestive track.

What is Carrageenan?
You may have heard of a product called Carrageenan or Carrageenins. Carrageenan is a byproduct of red seaweed. The (Food and Drug Administration) FDA approved the use of Carrageenan in food and drugs. The seaweed is broken down and manufactured into a gel. It is used worldwide for its stabilizing properties, and as a thickening agent.
More recently Carrageenan has been in the press for it’s negative side effects. Consuming large quantities of Carrageenan may cause digestive problems like IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or IBD (irritable bowel disease), inflammation and colon cancer.
Because Carrageenan is an extract from Seaweed, this amazing superfood went under the spotlight. I want to make this very clear. Carrageenan and Seaweed are NOT the same thing. Seaweed is a whole food with fiber, minerals and nutrients in abundance. Consuming Seaweed has many health benefits. Carrageenan on the other hand has been manufactured and all the goodness taken out of it.
