Feeling bloated and going through menopause can be a real drag. But did you know that sea moss might be able to help? Sea moss is a type of seaweed that's been used for ages for its natural healing powers. Here's how it can help with bloating and menopause in a totally non-boring way.
Sea Moss for Bloating
- It's anti-inflammatory: Sea moss has anti-inflammatory powers that can soothe your gut and ease bloating.
- It's a prebiotic: Sea moss contains fiber that feeds the good bacteria in your gut, which helps your digestion and can cut down on bloating.
- It's packed with potassium: Sea moss is loaded with potassium, which helps your body balance fluids. That means less water retention and less bloat.
Sea Moss for Menopause
- It has iodine: Sea moss is full of iodine, which is important for thyroid health. As women age, their thyroid function can slow down, which can make menopause symptoms worse. Sea moss can help support thyroid function and ease symptoms.
- It has phytoestrogens: Sea moss contains compounds that mimic estrogen in the body. Since estrogen levels can drop during menopause, sea moss can help balance things out and ease symptoms.
- It's packed with vitamins and minerals: Sea moss is chock-full of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C, which are all important for overall health and can help make menopause easier.
Sea moss comes in lots of different forms, so you can find the one that works best for you. You can add it to smoothies (it’s already in our XO Jacqui Vanilla Greens Protein Powder), soups, and stews, or sprinkle it on salads. You can also take it in supplement form.
Sea moss might not be a magic cure-all, but it's a natural way to help with bloating and menopause. Plus, it's pretty tasty, so why not give it a shot? Just make sure to talk to your doctor before adding any new supplements to your routine.
