We’re pretty sure you know what a lettuce looks like, but have you heard of sea lettuce? Well, a lot of people all over the world have and it’s especially popular among Okinawans, who have a life expectancy of 81.2 years and who are also 82% more unlikely than the average American to have coronary heart disease. Do you think that’s just a coincidence?
It turns out that sea lettuce actually has a lot of healthy nutrients that’s good for the human body…
Why Ingesting Sea Lettuce is a Good Choice:
- It can help you lose weight, because it has few calories and very little fat, but it’s full of dietary fiber that makes you feel full—and helps prevent cravings.
- It’s got lots of vitamins. And that means just about every vitamin there is. If there’s a vitamin that’s good for you, you’ll find it in sea lettuce. Vitamins A, C, and E, for example, are potent antioxidants that help prevent many health conditions.
- Sea lettuce helps keep your bones healthy. That’s because it has calcium and magnesium. You may have read about how important calcium is for our bones, but not many people know about the importance of magnesium. Magnesium is what you need so that your body can absorb calcium.
- It’s rich in protein and iron. While you can get these from meat, you may want to take note of the rich amounts of iron and protein in sea lettuce as well, especially if you’re a vegetarian.
