What Are Sea Vegetables and Where Can I Get Them?
Sea vegetables such as dulse, nori, kelp, hijiki, wakame, laver, and alaria can contribute a lot to a Raw/living foods diet: minerals, enzymes, vitamins, protein, healing fiber, and marine phyto-chemicals. Sea vegetables contain significant amounts of vitamins, especially the B vitamins. A serving of dulse (about 7g, 1/3 cup) provides about 10% RDA Vit B-2 (Riboflavin) and about 42% RDA Vit B-6. Laver is rich in these B-vitamins and also contains 7% to 10% RDA Vitamin A. Alaria offers even more Vit A, up to 20% RDA, along with the B vitamins. You can find sea vegetables at health food stores and on the Internet (see Seaveg.com).
I personally use and highly recommend Vitamineral Green — this is a great source of sea vegetables (dulse and kelp) and my all time FAVORITE green powder. This is a must have in every kitchen cupboard. I include a tablespoon of this amazing nutrition in my life every day. By far, this is the most effective green powder on the market that I've tried.
