Sodium alginate is a food additive made from the cell walls of brown seaweeds like sargassum, although it can also be made from other brown seaweeds, also known as kelp.

Sargassum as a Sea Vegetable
Sargassum can be eaten in a stir-fry as a vegetable. It is rich in minerals such as iodine which helps promote healthy thyroid function. Kelp is low in calories -- a 1-oz. serving has only 12 calories, and is fat- and sugar-free.
Sargassum as a Diuretic in TCM
Sargassum can help reduce the amount of water in the body, reducing adema, or swelling, by increasing the production of urine, notes the website Healthline. Sargassum seaweed is a common component of Tradition Chinese Medicine, and is used to treat a range of issues from thyroid problems to silicosis.

    I'm impressed, I need to say. Seriously rarely do I encounter a blog that is both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. Your notion is outstanding; the problem is something that not sufficient people today are speaking intelligently about. I'm quite pleased that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this. [URL=]mk restaurant chicago[/URL]
