                     Nutrition Index


From a nutritional point of view, seaweeds are low-calorie foods.
With a high concentration of minerals, vitamins, proteins and       indigestible carbohydrates and some lipids, Sea Plants are more potent than any land plant because it contains a great number of organic compounds known as phyto (plant) chemicals. Many of these organic compounds are necessary,  but are missing in our food supply.
Low caloric means not suited as much for energy Easy digestible sugars and fats.
Important because most researcher agree that (there is now a     growing consensus) that a healthy nutrition is the most powerful mean of prevention of disease.
It makes sense to add seaweed (sea vegetables or Algae) to your diet.
