Purple and Gold
Purple Sea Moss contains additional benefits of natural purple-hued anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants believed to delay cellular aging and to help the heart by blocking the formation of blood clots. It’s harvested in deeper waters and is less abundant, so you can really taste the sea and its healing waters with Purple Sea Moss. This is air dried in a controlled environment.
Gold Sea Moss is sun-dried along the shores of the Caribbean in St. Lucia, and is rife with all of the sun’s beneficial impact on plants, and contains all of the same nutrients as the purple sea moss except for the anthocyanins.
You can find these mosses in 16oz or 8oz jars, or in their natural form. Sea moss is a marine macroalgae or seaweed, which can include various marine plants. The mossy algae that is sea moss grows on the rocky shores of the Northern Atlantic Ocean between North America and Europe, and while the sea moss above is purple and gold, its hues can range from green to yellow, red, and even black. It features long spiny tendrils and it has a lettuce-like appearance when in the sea. The carrageenan in sea moss has been used for decades to thicken puddings, thick beverages, ice creams and other food, and is vegan.
