Irish Moss helps with balancing thyroid hormones. It contains the thyroid hormone precursor DI-Iodothyronine (DIT), and the thyroid hormones Thyroxin (T4) and Triiodothyronine (T3). If the thyroid doesn't produce these hormones as it should, this can have a detrimental effect on metabolism and many other bodily systems. Irish Moss is also extremely high in the trace element Iodine - the thyroid gland contains the highest concentration of iodine than any other organ in the body. You cannot make thyroid hormones without sufficient levels of iodine.
Being a potent source of potassium chloride, Irish moss dissolves catarrh, phlegm and soothes inflammation of the mucus membranes to clear congestion, helping to clear out the lungs. Because of these expectorant qualities, Irish moss may help the common cold from turning into pneumonia and can support other respiratory problems such as bronchitis. Irish moss also has powerful antiviral properties, helping to support a myriad of disorders such as flu, sore throats, coughs and more.
The human body is made up of 102 minerals and Irish moss contains 92 of them. It also provides a wealth of other important nutrients including: protein, beta-carotene, B vitamins, pectin, vitamin C and sulphur. One of the most important of these nutrients is a sulphur-containing amino acid called taurine, which is more abundant in Irish moss than any other seaweed – a nutrient that is commonly lacking in vegetarian and vegan diets.
It is an excellent immune boosting food that can be invaluable in the recovery from debilitating illness. Its high vitamin and mineral content make it the perfect supplement to replenish and revitalize the body.
The high fiber content in Irish moss exerts a mild laxative effect while soothing inflamed tissues within the intestinal tract, potentially providing relief from intestinal disorders. It’s demulcent properties promotes healthy digestion – soothing the membranes of the digestive tract. The gelatin like content helps to ease gastritis, dyspepsia, nausea, heartburn and indigestion.
Irish moss is thought to help reduce the appetite due to its ability to absorb moisture, increasing its volume and filling the intestinal tract with a bulking type material, thus increasing the feeling of fullness. Its gentle laxative effect can promote the elimination process of waste through the gastrointestinal tract. The aforementioned iodine content can boost metabolism which in turn will increase energy and can help to accelerate weight loss.
