Mixture of Seaweed herbs.
Your lifestyle and dietary choices make an enormous difference to your lifespan and to your quality of life in later years. A good diet will help to keep healthy. All it takes is a little work in the ‘here and now’ to keep you in a good shape for later.
Why seaweed? Because of the fact that the beginning of all life started at the oceans (water), our common origin, and by the fact that seawater has almost the same proportion of minerals as the human blood.
Seaweed too is rich in essential minerals, such as, iodine and iron, the important trace elements, which can make a difference in Human health. These trace elements include zinc, boron, chromium, selenium and tin, to name a few. Moreover, seaweed contains a high level of vitamins, particularly vitamin B12, a vital nutritional element usually found only in meat. Therefore it is recommended as a substitute for meat products in vegetarian diets.
Optimum nutrition is the medicine of the future.
**The optimum nutritional micro-environment of every cell in the body is vital to achieve or restore optimal health; deficiencies in this environment cause the body to be more susceptible to diseases and degeneration.
**To make access to seaweed and the use of it easy, we will dry and mill the seaweed for you. After that you can use it like you use a herb or spice. Just sprinkle it on vegetables, meat or fish while preparing it.
**Alternatively, use it to enhance the quality of salads, soups, milkshakes, corn flakes etc. or use it for savoury dishes. It will give your cooking a special natural flavour and many health benefits.
**You do not need large quantities because we assume that you will add it only to compensate for possible food deficiencies; trace elements and organic minerals and vitamins.
(Recommended amount between one and two gram pro person/day).

Green rockweed grows in the shallow waters at the edge of the ocean. In the world of the herbs you could compare it with pepper or sambal. A very strong taste due to a high content of alginic acid. Do not use it therefore in large quantities.
Green Rockweed gives a fresh taste to many dishes. Its cousin, Brown Rockweed, and one of the more slow growing seaweeds. Most seaweeds are fast growers and are sometimes called the lungs of the world. That is not the case with Rockweed. Furthermore it is an important habitat for small fish and other creatures living at the edge of land and sea. Still abundant, but it might need watching its development in the future!

Sea lettuce or Ulva Lactuca:
This lovely green vegetable keeps impressing us, only one or two cell layers thick.
You can look through it. Mostly it is fresh eaten or after preserving it in salt.
We do dry and mill it but it takes a lot of effort to produce any large quantities. It contains a lot of salt after drying! It will bleach easily in the sun turning it useless.
Best served locally or shipped by plane. (Costly)

Demulcent, emollient, nutritive. It was being used as medicine to cure cold. The elderly people discovered it’s jellying properties: Carrageen was born.
As a popular remedy turned into a jelly for pulmonary complaints and kidney and bladder affections. Normally combined with cocoa. The decoction was made by steeping 1/2 OZ. of the Moss in cold water for 15 minutes and then boiling it in 3 pints of milk or water for about 10 or 15 minutes. After straining and seasoning with liquorice, lemon or cinnamon and sweetened to taste.
Irish moss varies in appearance and more than thousand different shapes are known.
Like dulse it is left on a net on the beach after harvesting. They would leave it there for a considerable time and let the sun bleach it. Dulse however is harvested as soon as possible and kept free of the rain. The old Irish people would take it into a shed or even their own home for this purpose.
(degrades much faster than Irish moss).

Salt replacement and seasoning.
As a salt producing source, it is used by humanity since his earliest existence. The recorded history goes as far back as 1.000 BC in China.
Some cultures consume seaweed fresh, others would first dry it to preserve, or use it for seasoning.
Seaweed as herbal salt is a deliciously natural product; grown organically without the use of pesticides or chemicals. The potassium content, organic minerals and trace elements are considerably higher than in any other salt on the market. It is similar to our herbs and spices. We do grind it however much smaller to make it more effective while using it.
When seaweed contacts water, it will increase in size up to five times its original volume. We only use fine milled seaweeds for use as a salt replacement By making it smaller, its active surface will increase substantially. However, its density will increase also. A container will hold only 50 gram.
The seaweeds we recommend are the Seaweed mix-s, kelp-s and green rockweed-s for this purpose. Dulse could also be used, because it is very salty.
Again one of the first things man discovered in the past was the effect seaweed did have on the fermenting/seasoning of food. Fermentation is making use of yeast and bacteria to make food more digestible and more nutritious. Even more important, it helps to preserve food. (Storage possible)
For example: cheese, sauerkraut, yoghurt, tempeh, etc.
Beverages such as: wine, beer, cider, ale, vinegar, kombucha.
In similar ways it can improve your digestion. The conversion of fat and sugar etc. into usable parts. When food is not digested properly, it still can get into your bloodstream. Instead of recognizing these cells as food, your body might view them as toxins and the immune system will react. A similar reaction is possible when you will overload, meaning eating too much of the same food too often…. one of the problems of modern man! Most people do under-estimate the complexity of our digestion system.
--We do not eat enough fermented foods; many foods are just lacking of vital trace-elements and vitamins needed.
--We do eat too much of the same. The variation of different foods on offer it decreasing rapidly making it more difficult to vary.
