Organic Sea Vegetables have been the focus of recent studies conducted by UC Berkeley and UC Davis. The studies have concluded that the health benefits of Sea Vegetables are wide and varied. The organic sea vegetables used in the studies, mainly bladderwrack, a type of kelp supplement, were found to work as anti-cancer and breast cancer prevention agents. The kelp supplement in the study was chemically tested and proven to contain healthy amounts of marine minerals such as: Iodine, Vitamin K, Folate, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron and Tryptophan.
The University studies proved a link in a typical Japanese diet rich in organic sea vegetables (in strong text) and low breast cancer rates in women. Sea vegetables and kelp have been used in the Japanese diet for more than 1000 years. There are many additional trace marine minerals in organic sea vegetables besides the main constituents of Iodine, Vitamin K, Folate, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron and Tryptophan.
Due to leached out, poor terrestrial soil qualities, much of the food that humans eat is deficient in critical anti-cancer and cancer prevention trace minerals. The health benefits of sea vegetables are derived from the bio-enhanced marine minerals in the organic sea vegetables (in strong text). The sea vegetables used in many kelp supplements soak up the abundant marine minerals in sea water. The kelp acts as a filter, leaving bio-available marine minerals in the body of the kelp plant. It is for this reason that the Japanese diet rich in sea vegetables is considered superior for anti-cancer and cancer prevention.
