Seamoss or as we call it in Ireland carrageen moss and it’s scientific name is chondrus crispus.
Carrageen (from the irish word carraigin, meaning “little rock”)’ the benefits of Irish Seamoss were well known to the natives of Ireland long before it took on the status of “Superfood”
Irish seamoss is a species of red algae that grows in the cool Atlantic waters along the rocky coastlines of Europe and North America. It’s also popular in Jamaica.
Carrageen in Irish history
The benefits of carrageen were well known to our Irish ancestors, who harvested it for centuries.
According to Seaweed.ie, the use of Irish moss in treating respiratory problems was first described in Ireland in 1810. The name “carrageen,” which, in addition to its Irish language origins may also stem from Carrigan Head in Co. Donegal, was first introduced around 1830. It was especially important during the Great Hunger (1846-51) as one of the few sources of nutrition still available, at least to those living near the coast.
Irish moss, like a number of the other seaweed varieties found on the Irish coast, is harvested after the spring tides, when the water is farthest from the shore. Traditionally, harvesters venture out into the shallow waters by boat or on horseback and use long rakes to separate the seaweed from the rocks. It is then sorted and laid out in the sun to dry for up to two weeks.
DI-Iodothyronine (DIT), what T3 breaks down into, is found in abundance in brown sea moss and for this reason, it has been used as a treatment for thyroid disorders. Thyroxin (T4) and Tri-iodothyronine (T3) have been found as the main organically bound iodine compounds in several seaweeds.
Then, of course, there is the iodine, which is highly concentrated in sea moss and this is serious fuel for the thyroid. Selenium is also present in abundance and is a necessary factor in thyroid hormone production.
Being a potent source of potassium chloride, this sea moss dissolves catarrh, phlegm and soothes inflammation of the mucus membranes to prevent congestion, helping to clear out the lungs of any phlegm that builds up with a common cold. Because of these expectorant qualities, Irish moss may help to prevent a common cold from turning into pneumonia and can treat other respiratory problems such as bronchitis. Irish Moss also has powerful antiviral properties, helping to prevent or treat a myriad of disorders such as flu, sore throats, chesty coughs and much more.
Seamoss also provides a wealth of other important minerals including, potassium, iodide, potassium phosphate, bromides, and a large apercentage of zinc, magnesium and the most abundant being calcium.
