A Forgotten Food
Around 2.5 million years ago there was a transition from primitive to modern Homo sapiens. Research shows that at this time our ancestors moved to coastal environments and started eating seaweed. The nutrients that were (and still are!) in seaweed allowed for the evolution of the human brain. Seaweed is a natural rich iodine source which is essential for brain development, and forms a crucial part of this story.
Harvested in Pristine Scottish Sea Lochs
Our Organic Hebridean Ascophyllum Seaweed is sustainably wild harvested around the remote islands of the Scottish Outer Hebrides. These pristine waters are carefully monitored and managed with exclusive harvesting rights from the Crown Estate. Our seaweed is carefully dried and milled using our Patent Pending technologies which ensures high quality, nutrient rich, and fully traceable products from sea to store.

Iodine is an essential nutrient you have to get in your diet. The primary sources are white fish and dairy, with seaweed being the only natural and good plant based source of this essential nutrient.
Without sufficient iodine, your thyroid may not work as it should, as iodine is required in the production of thyroid hormones which have many impacts on your health and wellness. A diet insufficient in iodine can result in numerous health conditions, including an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), with symptoms including weight gain/difficulty losing weight, tiredness, sensitivity to cold, depression, brittle hair and nails, dry skin and more (see the NHS website here for more info).
One of the main benefits of a natural source of iodine like seaweed is the fact it can be released into the body more slowly, and has longer retention compared to artificial sources such as potassium iodide for example. This was demonstrated in an independent research trial which demonstrated that the artificial iodine was excreted more quickly than that from our seaweed. For more information about the study, check out this article.
There are over 10,000 different types of seaweed, and we stick to just the one, knowing the iodine level of each batch and ensuring sustainable harvesting. The seaweed is carefully produced into a powder using proprietary technologies, and every batch is tested to for other aspects of nutrition and safety, along with unique traceability and DNA Authentication so you know exactly what it is you are getting
B12 is an essential vitamin, and which can be lacking particularly in a vegan diet, as the main sources are animal based. Before it was discovered in the mid-20th century, scientists were unsure what was causing a wide range of health problems, and which turned out to be deficiencies in B12. This essential vitamin does not often occur naturally in plants, and when it does the sources are said to be inactive. However, the natural extracts used for Doctor Seaweed’s Weed & Wonderful Immunity+ supplements are from mushrooms and provide an active form of B12 that is organic and plant-based.
Vitamin D is obtained from two sources: diet and from the action of sunlight on your skin. An abundance of sunlight means you will get much of what is needed. However, you do also need sources from your diet. This is especially the case during winter months, if you are inside a lot of the time, have darker skin, and as you age due to a decline in your ability to produce vitamin D. The organic and plant-based source used in Doctor Seaweed’s Weed & wonderful Immunity+ supplements is extracted from lichens, which are an amazing symbiotic relationship between fungi and algae or cyanobacteria. The form extracted is vitamin D3, which is more commonly found from animal sources. Research shows that D3 can be more effective than D2 (normally found in plants) at being absorbed by the body.

Seaweed is a forgotten food, which in the past was widely used as one of the most abundant sources of natural nutrition. Despite this, there is often limited awareness of seaweed for health and nutrition, and with many people unsure how to use and benefit from seaweed.
Doctor Seaweed is on a mission to educate and advise people on the amazing health benefits of seaweed and make it easy to incorporate seaweed into their daily lifestyle and diets.
The seaweed used in the range of capsules, PureSea® Natural Organic Hebridean Ascophyllum Seaweed is sustainably wild harvested around the remote islands of the Scottish Outer Hebrides. These pristine waters are carefully monitored and managed, with exclusive harvesting rights from the Crown Estate.
Because they have a dedicated manufacturing operation it allows Dr Seaweed to fully control and provide traceability throughout their supply chain so customers can be assured of our quality.
For every Greener Beauty customer order we plant one tree. This is part of our ongoing effort to lower our carbon footprint and build a better world. We work with an American Charity called Eden Reforestation who plant trees globally where they are most needed. They hire, train and employ local people at a fair wage who then plant trees native to their land and protect the seedlings and eventually the forests. As a result of their careful nurturing they have an 80% seedling survival rate. This gives the local people a consistent income enabling them to provide for their families, and as the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests emerge and the negative effects of deforestation disappear. Since Eden Reforestation began over 250 million trees have been planted around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique. To further negate the carbon footprint of Greener Beauty HQ we also plant 15 trees a month per member of staff. Always ethical. Always vegan. Always Greener Beauty.
