The Food Capsules 60
Unique blend of Seagreens® organic wild wrack seaweeds for daily health and nutrition.
Nutritional therapeutic use in gut health, thyroid health and detoxification.
Seagreens® wild Ascophyllum nodosum, Pelvetia canaliculata, and Fucus vesiculosus seaweeds (Organic), vegetable capsule.
Two capsules a day
These whole food nutrition products provide the synergy of three closely related species of Seagreens® organic wild wrack seaweeds - Ascophyllum, Pelvetia, and Fucus.
These are micronised and mixed to provide a convenient, uniquely complete and balanced dietary foundation for all ages in everyday use and nutritional therapy.
These capsules slide open so that the content can also be taken in a juice or smoothie. Seagreens® products contain no additives whatsoever and all capsules are 'Trufilled' which means that they always deliver the stated amounts per capsule.
Food Capsules are easily taken each morning (preferably with other food) and at other times, preferably during the first half of the day.
These capsules provide - in their natural relationship - a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phenols, essential fatty acids, enzymes, trace elements, amino acids, proteins and numerous nutritional compounds including all the rarer nutrients like B12, selenium and zinc, complex micronutrients, and special seaweed carbohydrates which benefit the gut and gut bacteria. Iodine contributes to normal thyroid, nervous system and cognitive function, the normal growth of children, normal energy-yielding metabolism, and the maintenance of normal skin.
