Seaweed is a staple in many Japanese diets due to the variety of nutrients it provides. Some of them include: Iodine, calcium, Vitamin A, and Vitamin B-12. It’s also a good source of protein and fiber. There’s a caveat, though. Given that seaweed is from the ocean, some types contain high amounts of sodium which obviously can be detrimental to a person’s health, despite the benefits.
In addition to ajbry’s comments, seaweed has lots of amino acids and a good source of protein. It also is a low calorie and low fat food, so it’s perfect for dieters. Seaweed can also help balance blood sugar and the digestive system.
Seaweed is ten to twenty times richer in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids than vegetables grown on land. Some varieties have ten times the calcium of milk and eight times more iron than beef. Seaweed can help break down fat, strengthen the immune system, and clear plaque buildup in the arteries. Sea vegetables also are natural sources of sodium and iodine. Regular consumption of seaweed contributes to the healthy appearance of skin and hair.
