Sea Moss is something I learned about while investigating Alkaline Veganism and Dr. Sebi. It has many reported benefits including treating thyroid problems and helping the body to detox. Since last summer I have been taking it off and on and I have decided it is a better iron supplement than what I can buy at the store and helps me to regulate my mood.
When I run out I get overwhelmed easier, I can’t focus on any task for very long, I feel like running and other exercises are a struggle.
Making it has been a learning process and the number one thing I can recommend is to invest in a Vitamix blender. I have used other blenders and it’s not pleasant to be gulping down big chunks of sea moss in your drink.
Sea moss comes dried and it needs to be washed and rehydrated. You may very well find small crustaceans in your sea moss.
Begin by putting some in a colander and rinsing and massaging the dried sea moss so as to remove the sea salt and creatures. Then soak in a glass or stainless steel bowl, avoid plastic because the chemicals inside of plastic containers can leech into your sea moss. Also it is recommended to use spring water but filtered non fluoridated water is also ok. It needs to soak for several hours to soften. Then drain the water and add your seamoss to the blender. Add some new water (not much is needed as you want to blend it into a gel). Now you have made your gel store it in a glass jar with a lid in the fridge. Sea moss gel needs to be used within 5 days or it will go bad. You can also fill an ice tray with the gel to use in fruit smoothies and to make it last longer.
To make Sea Moss Tea
- hemp milk or your favorite plant milk
- Vanilla extract
- Raw agave
- 3/4 cup sea moss gel
- Boiling water
Boil water and mix all the ingredients in a large thermos I’d say fill the cup halfway with water and then add everything else. Stir with a spoon and maybe even pour into another large cup back and forth to make sure you mix up all the agave.
Use a small whisk for about 5 minutes to help break up the chunks if it’s been in the fridge a few days.
