In short: Seaweed has crazy amounts of benefits, especially if you eat it regularly. Studies (yes, studies!) have shown that communities that eat a little bit of seaweed every day, especially in Japan and Okinawa, live longer and healthier lives. Research has shown that these cultures have less heart-, diabetes-, and obesity-related deaths compared to the US. Seaweed’s powerhouse of nutrients and bioactives have also been shown to have antioxidizing properties; recent studies are exploring seaweed’s role in reducing inflammation and in fighting cancer. All of this new research is why we’re so excited about seaweed, and why we came up with the Daily Bite.
