In coastal zone’s as Ireland, Iceland, Scotland people made extensive use of a variety of different seaweed species.


Seaweed, seaweed extracts and other substances derived from the sea, e.g. Dead Sea mud, and Maërl, are believed to be vital elements which act in harmony with the human body, helping to achieve health, beauty and relaxation .

The believe based upon important differences between plants and seaweed’s.
Whereas land plants require a rigid structure capable of withstanding the constant pull of gravity, marine plants must have a more flexible structure to accommodate the varying stresses of currents and wave motion. They have adapted accordingly by developing gelatinous structural materials having the necessary flexibility. 

Secondly:
Algae have unlike there earthly cousins no roots, leaves, seeds, flowers or vascular systems. They nourish themselves through osmosis attracting gases and nutrients dissolved in the watery environment that is their home. Because of the lack of a vascular system the minerals in seaweeds are in colloidal form, meaning they retain their molecular identity while remaining in liquid suspension. Able to pass not only between the different cell but through the cell wall as well. These colloids are not only very small in size and are easily absorbed by body’s cells.
Other“ Minerals that are attached to other substances such as amino acids are also more bio available. These are call chelated (key-lated) minerals, from the Greek word for claw.
As a result ,seaweed is packed with easy-to-absorb proteins, vitamins, minerals and lipids, it can protect against environmental pollution and even ward off aging. There nutrient pass through your tissue and enter isolated places in your body where no other nutrients can go. Beneficial effects on cellular repair, cellular growth and regeneration which have let many to believe that seaweed can lessen the signs of ageing. Additional these colloids/minerals and nutrients can enter your body through the skin, helping to increase the (micro) circulation, have a positive effect on local fatty overloads and helps maintain the tone of the tissue. To firm the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite!
Scientific research also indicates that seaweed’s ability to increase micro circulation and the metabolism promotes detoxification and enhances slimming and weight loss.

Additionally, these  negatively charged minerals can help increase the transport and bioavailability of other foods and supplements as well. Not only rich in minerals but also numerous other compounds with biological activities including phycobiliproteins, phenolic compounds, terpenes etc.

Pieces of seaweed obtained by the grinding and crushing of dried seaweed are also incorporated in products such as face mask, soap bars and shampoos.

Seaweed extracts are substances (compounds) derived from the cytoplasm or cell walls of seaweed cells and not pieces of seaweed tissue. Most of these extract are obtained by drawing boils of dried seaweed. Containing substances (compounds) derived from the cytoplasm or cell walls of seaweed cells and are not pieces of seaweed tissue. The utilisation of seaweed extracts in the cosmetic industry involves the use of such compounds in a wide range of cosmetic products.
Extracts can be used in cosmetics in two ways: either as an agent in the preparation of products (as a stabiliser or emulsifier as examples), or as the therapeutic agent itself.

Third, seaweed contains a cocktail on minerals, vitamin, protein and Fiber in the right proportions. Ill health can be brought about by an imbalance of nutrients, producing either an excess or deficiency which in turn affects body functioning in a cumulative manner. Moreover, because most nutrients are, in some way or the other, involved in cell-to-cell signalling (e.g. as building block or part of a hormone or signalling 'cascades'), deficiency or excess of various nutrients affects hormonal function also indirectly. Another advantage is that the more complex salts present in seaweed, give you less craving for simple junk food (salt). Becoming more whole, satisfied and healthy.


The Atlantic seaweed we sell is harvested from the wild, whereas in Asia they are extensively cultivated.


Most of it sold in their dehydrated form and stored in an airtight plastic container.
Stored in a cool dark place, such as a kitchen cupboard, they will keep nearly indefinitely.

 

 

 

•        Crushed algae (kelp)is often used in seaweed masks.

•        Carrageenan, a gel extracted from Irish sea moss, is commonly used as a cosmetic thickening agent.  

          that holds nutrients and water and a great moisturizer 

•        Bladderwrack (fucus), a brown seaweed, is often used in cellulite-reducing creams to eliminate excess

         fluid from the skin.

 

The Atlantic seaweed we sell has different usage’s; the most important for us are as providers of nutrients and protecting agents. Others, but on a much smaller scale are for their texturing properties e.g. Gelling, viscosifying, suspending and hydrating action.
