Irish Moss is a Revitalizing Super Food

(NaturalNews) Irish moss is not moss at all. It is in fact seaweed that grows along the
 rocky coast lines of the Atlantic Ocean. It is especially found in Ireland where it has a long 
history in Irish folklore as a good luck charm to be taken on long journeys, or to be placed 
under the rug at home to bring money and prosperity to the household. Irish moss was also 
used as stuffing for mattresses and cattle feed, but in the 19th century the people of Ireland
 underwent a horrific famine and Irish moss became one of the main sources of food and nutrition.
 More recently, Irish moss is becoming known as a healing and exciting super food.

Irish moss is now thought to contain 15 of the 18 essential elements that make
 up the human body. This includes great amounts calcium, iodine, sulphur, and
 potassium as well as Vitamins A, D, E, F and K. This is why this most amazing 
seaweed is thought to be able to cure everything from bladder disorders, bronchitis
, halitosis (bad breath), intestinal disorders and glandular problems to swollen joints
, lung difficulties, thyroid conditions, tuberculosis, tumors, and ulcers. Recent studies 
have found that Irish moss does in fact have some great anti-viral properties and can 
help fight the Influenza B and mumps viruses.

Irish Moss And The Skin

Irish moss is also thought to have many cosmetic properties from helping rid the
 body of varicose veins to reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Irish moss is even
 added to creams that are becoming known as the new miracles in the anti aging battle
. These new creams are thought to be so effective because of the high amounts of Vitamin K
 found in the moss. Recent studies in to the effects of Vitamin K on the body have linked it to 
the elasticity of the skin. As you get older your skin begins to wrinkle because it starts to lose
 some of its elasticity from when you were young. Adding a cream that is packed with Vitamin K 
can help improve this elasticity, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and things like bags or
 dark circles that can form around the eyes. These creams are also thought to heal all sorts
 of skin problems from eczema, psoriasis and even sunburn.

But one of the main uses of Irish moss within the health community is to help people
 recover from debilitating illnesses such as TB and Pneumonia. Its high Vitamin 
and mineral content make it the perfect food to replenish and revitalize the body 
after a long battle with disease.
