Superfoods of the sea

There’s no escaping it – winter is officially here. On the one front, we’re blessed with beautiful snow and holiday cheer. On the other side? Issues like lowered immunity, low energy, and sluggishness seem to creep up on us.

Naturally, our first line of defense is to increase our intake of fruits, veggies, and vitamin C. But … here’s the problem. Over the past 60 years, there have been fundamental changes in the quality of our land foods. The nutritional content of what we eat has declined due to chemical fertilizers, altered soil chemistry, and harmful farming techniques.

The answer? The next generation of green superfoods: Aquatic Greens.

From the depths of the pristine lakes of the Mongolian Plateau, comes Progressive Organics VegeSeas. A brand-new way of staying healthy, year-round. VegeSeas contains a family of organic, non-GMO green foods that include: spirulina (blue), nori (red), dulse (red), kombu (brown), and wakame (brown).

Together, this rainbow of superfoods provides a wide variety of trace nutrients that can’t be found in any one colour alone. It also helps improve energy, mental alertness, hair, skin, and nails by stimulating your body’s detoxification process.

But, now that aquaculture is on the rise, how do you know you’re picking the right supplement?

Number 1: Avoid Irish moss. Irish moss is a major source of carrageenan, a known cause of inflammation and intestinal distress.

Number 2: Steer clear of AFA (AphanizomenonFlos-aquae). AFA is a cyanobacteria that is often promoted as healthy algae. However, a 2005 study found that 100% of commercially available supplements containing AFA tested positive for compounds (microcystins) that are toxic to the kidneys, liver, and brain.

Number 3: Opt for Organic. Organic = no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. This means practicing sustainable water management and controlling pests using only biological and mechanical methods. It’s better for the environment and it’s better for your health.Product-Prime_EN
