We also realize that many of our flower followers are not familiar with sea moss and its plentiful benefits, so we dedicated this week's Blissful Times to our SeaBD Moss collection to help you get more familiar with this hidden jewel of the sea. Check out this list of 11 surprising Sea Moss benefits you probably didn't know about.
1. Supports Thyroid Health
Thyroid hormone imbalance is often known to cause fatigue, extreme weight gain/loss, fertility issues, and frequent muscle pain. And while there are a number of things you can do to support thyroid health; consuming sea moss could potentially be one of the best natural choices you could make for your body. Sea Moss, which has always been a staple in alternative medicine, is high in iodine content, a mineral that stimulates the production of thyroid hormones. One study even showed that sea moss might be effective in speeding up thyroid treatment among African women.
2. Clears Respiratory System of Mucus
Need to combat the flu, common cold, or an allergic reaction? Sea moss can help clear your respiratory and lymphatic system. The high chloride, chlorophyll, potassium chloride, and omega-3 fatty acid contents of sea moss makes it a good decongestant. This is in addition to its awesome antimicrobial and anti-inflammation properties that help reduce inflammation and dissolve mucus. So next time you find yourself suffering from a blocked sinus or lots of congestion (yes this includes covid-19), don’t be afraid to drop 1-2 tablespoons of sea moss in your drink or food every day [for at least 5 days] and watch the mucus start to dissipate.

3. Improves Overall Mood
Potassium is a very important mineral that supports mental and emotional health. Deficiencies in potassium can lead to confusion, depression, anxiety, nervousness, and fatigue. Since the body doesn’t store potassium for extended periods, replenishing your body with it regularly is necessary. And one of the most effective ways to do so is by consistently consuming sea moss daily.
Tip: Sea moss has about 2x more potassium than an average-sized banana and contains twice as few calories. If you’re trying to boost mineral consumption without packing on weight, you may want to consider adding our SeaBD Moss Get Your Mind Right gel to your diet.
