The sulfated polysaccharide compounds found in green Marine Algae support a healthy immune response.

The green seaweed provide a complete protein with all of the essential amino acids, many vitamins, minerals and other trace elements. Most importantly, these seaweeds contain the unique phyto-chemicals known as sulphated polysaccharides which are a protein bound carbohydrate that supports the body’s immune response to foreign invaders and can inhibit certain viruses.

Seaweeds provide a full spectrum of natural vitamins, minerals, proteins, selenium, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, phenols, enzymes, trace elements, amino acids, and all the rarer nutrients like B12 and zinc. Beneficial for gut bacteria.

Our seaweed is hand harvested directly from the north Irish Atlantic coast, hand dried and chopped by ourselves. No chemicals or other substances are used in production. No microwave, or any harmful process is undertaken.

Spirulina (ulva lactuca Spiralis or Ulva compressa Linnaeus)

Sea lettuces are a source of vitamins from group B (MacArtain et al., 2007; McDermid and Stuercke, 2003). For instances, Ulva lactuca contain high amount of cobalamin or vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 plays a key role in homeostasis of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood (Scalabrino, 2009). Daily ingestion of 1.4 g/day of Ulva lactuca will be enough to meet the daily requirements of vitamin B12 (MacArtain et al., 2007). One of the most important vitamins B occurring in Ulva reticulata is riboflavin (vitamin B2). Vitamin B2 deficiency is often endemic in human populations that subsist on diets poor in dairy products and meat. Vitamin B2 cannot be synthesized by mammals, and there is only limited, short-term storage capacity for this vitamin in the liver. Humans are vulnerable to develop a vitamin B2 deficiency during periods of dietary deprivation or stress, and this may lead to a variety of clinical abnormalities, such as growth retardation, anemia, skin lesions, and degenerative changes in the nervous system. Therefore, this water-soluble vitamin should be present in the diet on a daily basis (Van Herwaarden et al., 2007).


Sea Lettuce – Ulva lactuca is a green seaweed / algae found worldwide. It is found on sheltered to moderately exposed rocks and shores, and in pools and shallow waters near the low watermark. It thrives in brackish waters, particularly in waters with organic enrichment. It is fairly common along  the Irish Shoreline, but particularly on sheltered or moderately exposed shores


We have always been careful where we harvest our Sea Lettuce from. Making sure that the surrounding area is clean and has a great tidal exchange and fast current.
