Seaweed is one of the most revolutionary and extraordinary natural health agents of all time. Especially according to recent studies conducted by Dr. Haengwoo Lee, a biochemist now living in Seattle Washington, the benefits of seaweed are staggering. Sea food, such as crabs, oysters, lobsters, and salmon, while being delicious also are wonderful for you brain and heart.
Seaweed contains an anti-oxidant which is up to 100 times more effective than the traditional antioxidants Vitamins C and E. This "super-antioxidant" has wondrous health benefits. Studies show that taking a seaweed supplement for only six weeks can: reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol while increase HDL (good) cholesterol, increase elasticity and openness of arteries, improve memory, boost circulation, enhance mental sharpness, and even help you sleep better. It would take me ten million years to explain and type out the bio and chemistry behind this, so if you would like to read it for yourself, click here.
Seafood, especially salmon, tuna, and catfish, contain Omega 3 fatty acids. Normally our bodies get bombarded by Omega 6 fatty acids, these fats are found usually in chips or other packaged products. However, over seventy percent of humans lack omega 3 fatty acids because they are so hard to find. Among the few foods that have omega 3s besides seafood are nuts and avocados. But fish and fish oil is undoubtedly the most plentiful supply of these healthy fats. Omega 3 not only regulates your triglycerides in the blood, but also reduces blood clotting, inflammation, risk of heart disease, risk of stroke, and is vital in the production of brain and eye tissue. So important in fact that it is often added to baby formula. I'm not telling you to go ahead and eat the fish you sea in the ocean because that would be highly disturbing and extremely repulsive, but around beaches, there are always seafood buffets and restaurants. So after your day of spa treatments at the beach, get some of the other benefits from the ocean while also filling up your belly. Same goes for the seaweed, go have some sushi!
I hope this hub has been helpful to you guys. Also, I just wanted to mention, don't forget to moisturize when you get home from the beach. Although the sand and water are good for your, salt can also be drying, so after a day at the beach spa, take a shower, and put on some lotion.
