Sexual Health Benefits

There are four classes of seaweeds which are green, brown, red and blue-green. They all have health benefits when you consume them; however, what you may not know is that seaweed is classified as an aphrodisiac. It is a good source of manganese which is a mineral known to help increase your sex drive. Additionally, seaweed aids in sexual functioning as it contains vitamin E which helps produce healthy sperm by fighting free radicals in the sperm membrane and regulates the function of sex glands.

Seaweed also has a high vitamin B2 content which contributes to healthy hormone production. A study that specifically utilized the seaweed bladderwrack indicated that it may delay the ending of the menstrual cycle through menopause. The study showed that this was possible as seaweed exerts anti-estrogenic effects in women who are pre-menopausal.

How to Eat Seaweeds

Now that you know how healthy it is, you may wonder how one eats seaweed. For those that do not like the taste, there are capsules that you can swallow and there are shakers much like salt shakers where you can sprinkle it on your food and not really taste it when it mixes with other flavors.

Consumers are going so wild over the health benefits of seaweed that you can now easily get seaweed chips and rice cakes. The most common way to eat it is with sushi, in soups like Miso, over rice or quinoa and in salads. However, there are many ways to prepare seaweed.

There are two great cookbooks for seaweed recipes-
