Sea Moss Lemonade? Count Us In!

A concoction called SMADE by its inventor is just one recent example of new cool ideas and innovations around sea moss, dubbed the “superfood of the sea” and a microalgae holding so much nutritional promise and many potential health benefits. 

Sea moss lemonade in various flavors

Ezon James, according to a report by King5.com, discovered sea moss while having a vacation in Jamaica. He recalls finding it to be a staple drink about locals there, who also touted the health benefits every chance they got.

After researching and trying sea moss for himself, his company was born and launched an “aquatic” spin on good ol’ lemonade. It comes with different flavors and customers can also purchase sea moss gel, if they want to ingest it or slather it on skin for some natural cosmetic wonders. 

Now it’s a drink filled with the goodness of sea moss, which has been suggested to boost the immune system, protect from infections and gut issues, and provide a stellar lineup of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for whole body health. 

From breakfast smoothies to food thickening agent

New health concoctions like this aren’t anything new. Kim Kardashian herself swears by sea moss and publicly proclaims her love for the seaweed by posting photos of her sea moss smoothie on social media. 

People outside of health food circles start to become part of the conversation, taking sea moss straight and feeling an energy boost, or using it on their skin, hair, nails, and reaping the perks long term. 

Sea moss is a natural thickening agent, which makes its gel form handy in soups and stews, dressings, desserts, and other dishes. It doesn’t taste much; in gel form, it can also last up to three to four weeks inside the refrigerator for a flexible range of uses.
