Sea Moss is one of the most nutrient-rich natural foods you can get....

Packed full of Minerals & Vitamins but exactly whats the difference....

Before going through the detailed list of sea moss’s minerals and vitamins, let’s go back to the basics and review our nutrition lessons. Sea Moss is one of the most nutrient-rich natural foods. Nutrients are substances our organism uses to function. They can be classified into 7 main categories:  

·       Carbohydrates

·       Proteins

·       Fats

·       Minerals

·       Vitamins

·       Dietary fibre’s

·       Water 

Because they’re usually combined in nutritional supplements, minerals and vitamins are often thought to be the same thing, but they’re not. 

Vitamins are organic substances made by plants or animals. There are 13 essential vitamins for our body (A, B, C, D, E, and K, with 8 vitamins in the B complex).  

Minerals are inorganic elements. They come from soil or water and are absorbed by plants or eaten by animals. While there’s a wide diversity of minerals, only a few are essential like calcium, chromium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, sodium, and zinc. Our body needs these major minerals in larger amounts than other trace minerals. Sea Moss has all of these. Vitamins and minerals act in concert and play vital roles. They help build bones and cells, heal wounds, boost the immune system, convert food into energy, and a lot more.


Nutritionists generally agree that there are about 30 vitamins and minerals that our body needs but cannot produce on its own or in sufficient amounts. That's why a varied diet is important and superfoods like Sea Moss or dietary supplements can make a big difference in health and wellness.



Sea moss naturally contains 92 of 102 minerals our body needs to function properly. However, the presence and exact amount of each mineral vary greatly from plant to plant and depend on the environment in which Sea Moss has grown. It's important to understand that not all Sea Moss plant contains all 92 minerals. Sea moss absorbs minerals that are found in the water in which it grows. Consequently, pool-grown Sea Moss (fake Sea moss), for example, contains much fewer minerals than the wildcrafted type (real Sea Moss). Vitamin Sea Moss is Wildcrafted from St Lucia and is tested for heavy metals and authenticity.
