Authentic Product Pick: The Seaweed Bath Co. Sensitive Skin Soap

Authentic Product Pick

 

I’ve always had super sensitive skin. If I use a conventional bar of soap, laden with chemicals and coloring, I will get a rash followed by extremely dry skin. That’s why I highly recommend the Sensitive Skin Soap bars from The Seaweed Bath Co. I’ve been using their products for over a year now and I am very happy with the results!

The Seaweed Bath Co. was created by Adam Grossman, a long-time psoriasis sufferer, who wanted to take control of his own irritated skin without the use of prescribed medications or harsh chemicals. Seeking to improve the lives of other sufferers, Adam founded The Seaweed Bath Co. to share his fabulous seaweed products with the world. I love that these products are gluten-free, paraben-free, sulfite-free, and dye-free. They also smell amazing and leave your skin feeling soft and clean! If you are looking for a new bar of soap to use in the shower, be sure to give The Seaweed Co. Sensitive Skin Soap bars a try! They are handcrafted with bladderwrack seaweed extract and kukui oil to gently cleanse and nourish sensitive skin. My favorite would have to be the Lavender Scent, because it helps promote tranquility throughout your body. Visit the Seaweed Bath Co. website to learn more. I know that you will love this company as much as I do!

Authen-tip: Loving those Sea Vegetables!

When I tell people that I love eating sea vegetables (specifically nori and kelp), I usually receive a large round of “eeeewwww”s. Sea vegetables are a powerful healing food full of nutrients like vitamin K, magnesium, and folate. It’s one of nature’s best sources of iodine, a mineral essential for healthy thyroid function. Dried sea vegetables were rated second behind flaxseeds as the food that contains the highest amount of lignin phytonutrients that have a phytoestrogenic activity.  They can act like estrogen when the body stores of this hormone are low, like in menopause, potentially relieving associated symptoms.  Sea vegetables have an antithrombotic activity which means it has the ability to inhibit blood clots. They also have a concentrated source of iron, calcium, magnesium, folate, and tryptophan.

Authentic Food of the Day: Sea Vegetables!

People look at me funny when I tell them that I love to eat seaweed. I seriously love the way that it tastes! From sushi to seaweed chips, I always incorporate this nutritious veggie in my diet. The consumption of sea vegetables (aka seaweed) enjoys a long history throughout the world of more than 10,000 years. In ancient China, seaweed was a delicacy served only to honored guests and royalty. There are many different varieties including dulse, kelp, hijiki, nori, kombu, and wakame. Most sea vegetables are dried and come ready to eat. Others need to be reconstituted. The best way to select them is to be sure that they come in a tightly sealed package. Choose the form of sea vegetable that best suits your recipe and tastes. Sea vegetables, especially kelp, help promote healthy iodine function. It is one of nature’s best sources of iodine. Without sufficient iodine your body can’t synthesize certain hormones. Dried sea vegetables were rated second behind flaxseeds as the food that contains the highest amount of lignin phytonutrients that have a phytoestrogenic activity.  They can act like estrogen when the body stores of this hormone are low, like in menopause, potentially relieving associated symptoms. Some sea vegetables have been shown to have unique sources of carbohydrate-like substances called fucans, which have numerous beneficial properties including reducing the body’s inflammatory response.
