Health Tips :-
Most people identify seaweed with sushi, those delectable rolls of rice, vegetables, and seafood wrapped up in sheets of nori. Rich in calcium and magnesium, this marine algae is capable of so much more, not only in the food world, but in medicine, cosmetics and industrial products.
The latest and greatest use of seaweed is the fibrous alginate extracted from sea kelp, which can be added to everyday products such as bread, and reduce fat absorption in the body by 75 percent. The findings, which came out of Newcastle University in the U.K., were presented this week at the American Chemical Society's spring meeting in San Francisco. The conference brings over 17,000 scientists and 12,000 reports on the latest in the fields of chemistry, medicine, health and food.
