Different Types of Sea Moss

What is Sea Moss?

Sea moss is form of algae that is being consumed by people for thousands of years. It is scientifically named Chondrus crispus and grows in waters along the rocky Atlantic coasts, primarily between North America, Caribbean Islands and Europe. It is an edible sea plant that resembles kelp, dulse and many other typical leafy sea vegetables.

Sea moss, in addition to being historically consumed in regions like Ireland and the Caribbean, has been used medicinally for many years in various cultures to treat ailments like coughs, infections and low libido. It is a naturally abundant supply of iodine, a vitamin essential for thyroid health, just like other sea vegetables. It has the highest concentration of calcium on earth.  It is considered a healthy diet for humans as it contains almost all 92 minerals that are vital for the strengthening of our immune system. It has been said that sea moss is a great digestive aid due to its therapeutic effects on the body's mucous membranes. This plant's inherent qualities aid in the treatment of aphrodisiac disease, blood pressure reduction, the alleviation of cough and sore throat symptoms, immune system stimulation and thyroid function enhancement.

Moreover, sea moss is good for our skin and hair as it has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. You can apply the gel directly to your skin and hair. It also has antioxidant properties that can help against acne. Some people even use the mask to relieve eczema, dermatitis, burns and psoriasis.

What types of sea mosses are there?

There are types of sea mosses like Gold sea moss, Purple sea moss, Pool Grown sea moss, Ocean-farmed sea moss and Wildcrafted sea moss.

What is the difference between gold and purple sea moss?

Both Gold and Purple sea mosses are almost the same. The sea moss that is left to dry for a longer period, turns gold. And the sea moss that is dried for lesser time period turns purple. Gold sea moss is high in phytonutrients that aid in cellular communication, while Purple sea moss is high in antioxidants that fight free radicals in the body.

What is Pool Grown Sea Moss and Ocean-farmed sea moss?

Pool Grown Sea moss lacks nutrition and flourishes on ropes in unnatural waters. The ropes are also used to grow Ocean-farmed sea moss which deprives it from essential nutrients. It grows in the natural environment of the sea, often close to the shore and traffic which makes the water prone to contamination.

Wildcrafted sea moss is what we have! We sell plant based alkaline products and follow mostly an alkaline lifestyle referring to Dr. Sebi’s nutritional guide. We sell all wildcrafted alkaline herbs and only promote holistic healing. Wildcrafted Sea moss naturally grows on rocks and obtains its minerals from the rocks. We obtain it from the deeper part of the ocean where there is no traffic or water contamination. It is cleaned with natural spring water and sundried before packaging. Essentially, "wildcrafted" means "wild collected." This method of harvesting sea moss ensures that it is taken straight from its native habitat. Nothing is added to it; it is entirely natural. We sell 100% real and authentic wildcrafted sea moss, if for any reason you are not satisfied just let us know and we will make it right!
