Sea Moss Challenge | Vegan Nigerian

By | Sea Moss Challenge

Sea moss…what do you do with yours? Expert chefs, health specialists, bakers and personal trainers integrate sea moss into their routines and tell all.

Sea moss is a water vegetable that traps sunlight and is packed full of essential minerals. It contains 15 of the 16 essential minerals that you need to function healthily. From calcium to zinc, these minerals support the healthy functioning of your blood, bones and muscles; the foundations of a healthy body. We clean it thoroughly and create our own sea moss gel. This can easily be added to smoothies, sauces and cakes. It can act as an egg replacement and is an excellent binder.
