HOW IS IT CONSUMED?
The most common way to consume Sea Moss is by blending Sea Moss Gel into smoothies or ingesting powdered Sea Moss in capsules. Also some of the newer methods is sea moss gummies and tinctures. But which among these ways works better than the other?
SEA MOSS GEL
Before turning the superfood into a gel, it goes through a process of soaking in water. During this process, it absorbs the water and swells up to three times its size. After expanding, it is then cleaned and washed multiple times to remove impurities. Since it comes from the ocean, washing it can remove impurities. Afterwards, it is then blended with water until it turns smooth and creamy. Finally, it is refrigerated and later turned into a gel.
SEA MOSS CAPSULE
On the other hand, Sea Moss capsules go through a much simpler process of dehydrating the plant, grinding it into a fine powder, and encapsulating this powder. The process is definitely faster than creating gel.
SEA MOSS GUMMIES
Sea Moss Gummies are a tasty super fast way to consume sea moss. Studies show essential minerals and vitamins are absorbed in the body faster than traditional methods. Gummies can be infused with other herbs creating a powerhouse.
SEA MOSS TINCTURES
This is the newest method similar to CBD. Sea Moss is cold pressed into a liquid form. There are not many studies on how quickly absorbed, but judging by other types of supplement tinctures you can expect it to be absorbed quickly
GEL VS. CAPSULES
Before we can conclude which form of Sea Moss our body absorbs better, we should take a look at how our body metabolizes medication. According to the Orlando Clinical Research Center, it takes at least 30 minutes for our body to metabolize medicines in capsules. However, if it’s in a specialized casing, it may take longer than that.
Meanwhile, if the Sea Moss was ingested by blending the gel with water, it might take a full digestive cycle before the body can absorb all the benefits. Capsules take a shorter time to be absorbed since the nutrients go directly into the bloodstream.
If you prefer a quick and easy way to ingest Sea Moss without the earthy taste, go for capsules. However, if you prefer tasting it and enjoying it in your food, go for the gel variant. If you want quick absorption go for our Immune Support elderberry sea moss gummies or tinctures. Whatever your choice may be, you’ll still get the same benefits and effectiveness. One just delivers the nutrients more efficiently or faster.
