Many people know a product like seaweed. The benefits and harms - this is the main topic for debate, because some tend to the fact that seaweed is undesirable, while others say that it will be a good addition to the diet of each person. So what exactly is sea kale in fact?

People began to enter into the diet of seaweed for a long time. It was used not only in food but also as medicine. Laminaria (namely, so called algae, which is known to us under the simpler name "sea kale") is low-calorie, so it is often used for diets. In addition, with the help of kelp the Indians treated tuberculosis, the Irish - scrofula. Also, some types of kelp were used earlier as a diaphoretic.

Kelp is highly valued in China. where it is called sea ginseng. It is used to improve efficiency and restore strength. Also, do not forget about Japan, where sea kale is eaten every day. It is known that sea kale is an excellent preventive against atherosclerosis, which is why the Japanese suffer 10 times less from this disease.

Sea Kale: the benefits and harms

But enough talk about the kelp, and let's talk about how useful seaweed. This marine product contains a whole range of different microelements, vitamins, alginates and many other substances that undoubtedly benefit the body. So, kelp is rich in vitamins A, C, E, D, PP and group B. Laminaria contains almost all micro-and macro-elements necessary for a person. In addition, they are in such an organic form that the body can easily extract them from the kelp.

But the beneficial properties of seaweed are not over. We should also mention iodine, the content of which all other products are much inferior to the kelp. By the way, if you really want sea kale, most likely, you have a lack of iodine in the body, so do not revoke yourself in this product.

Eleganti. that are also contained in the seaweed, — this natural substance is able to bind and excrete toxins, radionuclides, heavy metals and excess cholesterol. By the way, alginates are also used in the food industry: they are added to the products in order to give them the necessary density. Indicate alginates with the help of the letter code E, which we always associate with various chemical additives. In fact, not all additives are harmful, so the E-400, E-401, E-402, E-404, E-406 and E-421 are natural alginates that are contained in the laminaria fibers.

Do not forget that the seaweed contains plant fibers. which are very easily digested. These fibers are necessary for us for the proper functioning of the digestive system. Also kelp normalizes the process of metabolism, prevents the formation of thrombi, regulates the water-salt balance in the body and the level of cholesterol in the blood.

As you can see, the amount of nutrients the body needs cannot be found in any other food except seaweed. But do not forget that not all people can eat kelp .

Kelp is undesirable to eat people who have intolerance to iodine. Also its not recommended to eat due to certain diseases. Such diseases are the various kidney disease, hemorrhoids, tuberculosis and acute forms of diseases of the digestive system. For acne, boils, urticaria and chronic rhinitis kelp generally contraindicated.

In itself, seaweed is a harm not be held unless it is not extracted from areas with strong water pollution. Laminaria absorbs not only useful, but also any harmful substances that are contained in the water. Therefore, you should know where the seaweed is harvested.

Sea Kale: the benefits and harms of choosing kelp

Do not forget that not all seaweed retains all its beneficial properties. Only raw or dried seaweed rich in vitamins and trace elements. Seaweed marinated or as part of salads that can be bought at the store has already lost the lion's share of all the useful substances. Therefore, try to buy fresh or dried sea kale. In dried kelp contains all the useful substances, so the sea kale powder can be added to various dishes. The taste of this will not change much, but the food will be much more useful.

What can you cook seaweed? Traditionally prepare for various salads. The country of the Soviets suggests you also try to prepare several dishes with kelp, the recipes of which you can find in our article "Salad with sea kale: the recipe for cooking."

I recently tried seaweed and realized that it's not edible =)
Really inedible and pulls barf =)
Even the mushrooms are not so ugly as seaweed. but the mushrooms I also hate the way(some of the space they are =)). and yet I hate fatty bacon and olives and various sushi ( and dangerous food)and so on. – also junk food.
I think. what I this hour listed – you can do without it. this in my opinion does not require the body =)
Voobshchem express the opinions - without what it is possible to manage =)

Personally, I sea kale in the early 90's as in stores besides her, there was not a nichrome, but to taste it for a very rare amateur, but I will notice one fact from the article that it really sometimes breaks through to eat the jar through the force the body directly demands. At the expense of choice, so it's not really how we know where it gets this cabbage when in Russia, even labels can not be trusted, although inasmuch as it is consumed by a very narrow range of gourmets then to forge and scoop it out of the hole with shit probably is not the reason.

You can do without food for a very long time. Tasting the usefulness of the product is not measured, and the tastes do not argue

Quoting Vladimir Petrov:

For me it is seaweed just afigitelny food. )
How to make: drain the brine from the jar, pour vegetable oil(unrefined-to your taste) 1-3 tables. spoon 2 more tsp. spoons (the identity of the taste) and soy sauce with fried (or boiled) Spud, yum yum =)))
And so it is clear – everything that is sold in stores 100% processed (so as not to spoil) and as a consequence contains a minimum of useful 🙁 ALL of us lazy so to speak, came in and bought it.
Vitamins are probably the first to collapse, trace elements are more stable.

Ilya, and you did not examine the gastrointestinal tract. Judging by the symptoms described by you, you have gastritis, and, in my opinion, hypoacid.

Regularly when preparing food in a pan, a teaspoon of sea kale. For I live in the iodine deficiency area.
