Irish Sea Moss
While you may have never heard of sea moss, you’ve likely heard of carrageenan- the gelatinous byproduct of sea moss used in food products and cosmetics. Before it reaches this point, Irish sea moss in its simplest form has a variety of health benefits ranging from skin health to immune support. The seaweed is rich in essential nutrients like zinc, calcium, magnesium and B vitamins. Some studies show that Irish sea moss is effective in boosting the immune system and may even protect the body against salmonella. Irish sea moss is available in powdered form, as a gel, or in capsules.
While the benefits of taking magnesium supplements are pretty widely understood, many people are turning to topical alternatives for their daily dose.

- relieving muscle cramps
- reducing headaches
- easing anxiety/depression
- promoting restful sleep
