What is Sea moss?
Irish Sea Moss or Chondrus Crispus is a type of sea-grown weed that is native to the Atlantic shorelines of the Caribbean Islands, North America, Europe, and the Indian Ocean. Wildcrafted or farmed, Irish Sea Moss has been consumed for generations in places like Ireland, Scotland, and Jamaica in food and as medicine. Based on its origins, Sea moss comes in multiple variations of color i.e., white, greenish-yellow (also referred to as Irish sea moss), or purple.
What are the benefits of Sea moss?
Regardless of its color, Sea moss is rich in sulfur which has many anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-microbial functions. When we talk about the microbiome not only of the gut, but also this of the skin, we know that alteration between good and bad bacteria is crucial. Restoring the microbiome is ultimately the key to resisting inflammation, diseases, and even prolonging your life.
Sea Moss also contains amino acids, vitamin c, vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and vital minerals. It has a mucilaginous thick structure, which can help soothe the mucus membranes in the body, boost your immune system, help clear up acne, and can support your digestive system. Sea Moss has become increasingly popular due to Dr. Sebi’s teachings on its healing properties.
How to prepare Sea moss Gel?
The first step to preparing Sea moss gel is thoroughly rinsing your dry moss in order to remove any dirt or sand residue. Make sure that instead of tap water, you use spring (table or mineral) water. Expect to see the moss already expand.
Once having cleared your sea moss from any unwanted particles, place it in a large glass container and submerge in spring water. Cover the container (with a lid, towel, foil, etc.) and let the moss soak for 12 to 48 hours.
After soaking for a day or two, the no-longer dry sea moss expands and obtains a slimy texture. Rinse once more (if necessary) and move on to placing it into a blender. Add a bit of spring water and blend until you get your desired texture – while some prefer their gel in a very silky and creamy consistency, others leave little bumps in for texture.
Once you have your sea moss gel ready, pour it into a sealable glass container and store in your fridge in-between uses. Feel free to add the gel to any of your favorite foods like oatmeal, ice cream, apple sauce, smoothies and so on.
What is the recommended daily dose of Sea moss gel?
While some people are really keen on sea moss gel’s mild flavor, others are not. However, the general consensus is that the daily Sea moss gel serving is 1 tablespoon for adults.
Sea moss is a must-have for every household and people of all ages. Whether dry or in the form of a gel, it is never too late to jump on the Sea moss healing train! You can learn more about how to store the different variations of Sea moss here.
