How seaweed provide what land plants are missing

Seaweed are rich in protein, very rich in vitamins and excessivly rich in trace elements. For people in the well nourished part of the world the last point is the most interesting. All chemical elements are present in sea water, and algae are famous for a unic capability to absorb and concentrate those we call trace elements. Land plants are not bad either, but the soil in which they are rooted does not contain more trace elements than the rock minerals from when it has been formed. And they have en enemy, seaweed have not: man, who is the great threat to trace elements in our foodstuffs. For the first man impoverishes the cultivated areas by removing with his harvests nitrogen, phosphorous and a host of different trace elements, which he compensates with fertilizers, replacing nitrogen and phosphorous, possibly lime and potassium, but no trace elements. For the second we exhaust cultivated and virgin land wherever industries and motorism cause acid rain, that dissolves and removes from the soil all those elements which increase in solubility and acid environment. Only the sea is unaffected. It is too huge and sea water is buffered, balanced, it will not be altered in its pH by mixing with acid rain. The simplest and most natural way for us to compensate the constantly decreasing level of trace elements in our landbased foodstuffs is to eat regularily suitable amount of food from the sea. Another excellent component is alginate, which makes up a third of dry kelp and which is a dietary fibre – something most people have a deficit of for their internal healts.

Hej jag kallas för Clas, Classe, ClasGöran eller CG och har forskat på havsalger sedan 1974. Jag har dykt i havet och plockat upp havsalger för att kunna använda dem som functional food, kostillskott och fodertillskott. Havsalger eller seaweed eller kelp som de också kallas ger dig ett starkt tillskott av de nyttiga ämnen du behöver, samtidigt som du får ett skydd mot onyttiga ämnen.
