Can Sea Moss Gel Help You Lose Weight?

According to the NIH, approximately 1 in 3 adults in America are overweight.

According to other studies conducted within the past few years, as high as 73.6% of people over 20, are overweight!

That all being said, the battle continues on ways for americans to lose weight.  

So can a simple weed from sea, "sea moss", be part of the answer?

Well to answer this we first have to understand WHY many people are overweight.  And it's not just as simple as saying "they are eating the wrong things", even though this is a simple way of putting it.  It lacks really understanding how that turns into a chronic issue.

Yes, some of this might be psychological.

But what happens in the body is that hormone resistance starts to occur, specifically insulin resistance.  

According to Healthline, sea moss (Chondrus crispus) may help with weight loss because it contains carrageenan, which can increase feelings of fullness, lower body fat, and improve gut microbiota.

So why are SO many people jumping on the sea moss bandwagon?  Are there other benefits?

Well, yes.  Sea Moss has many other potential benefits including up to 92 vitamins and minerals as originally touted by the man who made sea moss a well known supplement, Dr Sebi.  

Benefits from potential immune enhancing, antioxidant benefits, gut health, and vitamins/minerals such as iodine, magnesium, selenium, and others.

But if you are trying to lose weight, you do have to understand the ROOT causes of why you may be holding on to unhealthy pounds.  Yes, of course, you need to examine what you are taking into your body vs what are you burning (calories).  If you are not in a calorie deficit it will be difficult to lose weight.  That said, introducing the right supplements that can help you FEEL SATIATED, feel more full, might help you to reduce your intake of unhealthy foods and reduce overall calories.
