Sea moss is one of the most nutrient dense plants known to man. This seaweed is found in abundance close to the shore of the Atlantic ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Spectral analysis shows that it contains 15 of the 18 elements that comprise the human body. For a better understanding of the power of this plant we have outlined a few of the many benefits below.

Raw Irish Moss/ Sea Moss
First take about a hand full of sea moss and place it into your bowl. Let it soak overnight (it will swell more than twice its size).
Next, drain off the water and place sea moss into a strainer to wash. Use your hands to rub and move the moss around to make sure it is washed thoroughly. Then, place it into the blender and fill with water just over half the amount of sea moss for a thick consistency. If you desire a more watery consistency, fill the blender with water until it and the sea moss are at equal height.
Blend on high speed until the moss has become smooth. Scoop out into your glass jar for storage.
Place in fridge. It will become thicker after a few hours.
Scoop out the necessary amount needed for your recipes.
Finally, here is a table spoon of what it looks like after being refrigerated over night.
