Seaweed: Nature's Secret to Balancing Your Metabolism

Seaweed: Nature's Secret to Balancing Your Metabolism (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Seaweed has more vitamins, minerals and cell salts than any land-based vegetable, it has 1000 times more natural iodine than any other plant, which regulates metabolism. The lignans and fucoidan in it help to prevent and kill cancer cells. The fiber and mucilage aid weight loss. The laminarin helps prevent and treat cardiovascular disease. The antibiotic and antibacterial substances heal wounds and prevent infection. The alginate will detoxify the body. The nutrients moisturize and protect the skin. The natural sodium is nearly identical to that found in amniotic fluid. In "Seaweed", readers will discover an amazing substance as ancient as the sea itself for healing and turning back the clock on aging. This mysterious underwater plant, a staple in the Japanese diet, is credited with Japan having the highest longevity rate in the world. In this fascinating and comprehensive text, registered nurse Valerie Cooksley reveals how the most powerful nutrient on the planet - fresh, dried or in capsules - can change our lives. "Seaweed" features recipes for delicious meals (including many for the seaweed-wary), spa treatments that you can do at home and topical treatments for specific ills.

It has information about finding, storing and using seaweed, a product guide, a field guide and much more.
