eight loss is a long way that requires commitment. Let’s be honest, there is no solution better for accomplishing your weight goals than physical activity and conscious nutrition. Still, sometimes extra pounds appear due to medical conditions, such as hormonal disbalance, unwell thyroid, or micronutrient deficiency.

When it comes to supporting your body from within, sea moss is perfect for weight loss — safe and long-term. But how exactly does sea moss help with weight loss? In this article, the True Sea Moss team will shed some light on how this powerful alga works.

What’s special about Irish moss supplements?

First of all, what is Irish sea moss? It’s not just a Red algae species used in culinary for its carrageenan. It’s a seaweed — as well-established and prominent as nori — that has been around for centuries.

The prominence of Irish sea moss stems from these factors:

  • It’s abundant in antioxidative compounds
  • It contains amino acids, essential and non-essential, that can potentially boost your cognitive performance
  • It may nourish yourorganism with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids
  • It’s a host for fundamental trace minerals, enzymes, and coenzymes

How does sea moss help with weight loss?

Using sea moss gel for weight loss is not enough if you do it without a balanced diet and at least light physical activity. However, when sea moss is paired with a balanced lifestyle its rich nutrient profile can promote a healthy metabolism that will help you manage your weight and achieve your goals.

Aids in body fat reduction

Sea moss, needless to say, won’t burn your body fat if you don’t exercise or follow a special diet. However, some micronutrients contained in it might promote weight loss and enhance your metabolism, for example:

- Omega fatty acids(1)
- Vitamin E(2)
- Vitamin C(3)

These nutrients are beneficial for your immune system response, and the well-being of your heart, skin, hair, mental health, and general health.

Helps keep you full and satisfied

Diets and calorie watching might be overwhelming, especially in the beginning. The feeling of hunger might derail you or push you to give up. Sea moss is rich in dietary fiber, which can help you feel full and satisfied for longer periods. Fiber expands in the stomach, promoting a sense of fullness that can reduce overeating and snacking between meals.

Acts as a prebiotic for your gut

Fine digestion is essential for your immune system, metabolism, and overall well-being — which are, in return, fundamental for your weight loss. High in soluble fiber, the alga might cause a prebiotic effect. Prebiotics nourish your beneficial gut bacteria and ensure balance in your microbiome, vital for proper digestion.

Can potentially improve gut microbiota

Besides acting as a prebiotic, Irish sea moss might improve the mucous membranes of your bowel and stomach. Omega fatty acids and some compounds like cobalamin (B12) found in sea moss might cause an anti-inflammatory effect(4, 5) on your digestive tract, soothe soreness, cushion heartburn, and help regenerate damaged membranes.

May promote your metabolism

A boosted metabolism can help you burn calories more efficiently and maintain a healthy weight. It brims with antioxidants and essential trace minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, and iron, that might give a kick to your metabolism and significantly aid in your weight loss journey(6). What’s more, some Irish sea moss’ amino acids might boost your human growth hormone production, which is no less crucial for your metabolism.

May support thyroid function

A healthy thyroid produces enough hormones to keep all vital bodily processes in check. Metabolism deterioration is a common symptom of an underactive thyroid, while Irish sea moss might potentially help in supplying your thyroid with the all-important micronutrients — like B vitamins and iodine.

Might aid the liver in body detoxification

Detoxification is conducted by your liver, which breaks down toxic elements and removes them from your bloodstream. Its well-being is key to your health, immunity, and metabolism.

Some compounds of sea moss, such as antioxidants A and C, vitamins like B12, and minerals like selenium and zinc might contribute to liver health(7, 8, 9, 10), while the alga’s gel-like consistency might ease constipation and help you cleanse from within.

How much sea moss gel to take daily for weight loss?

If you wonder how much sea moss gel to take daily for weight loss — you want to stick to two tablespoons a day, with your meal, or distributed throughout the day.

Being rich in trace minerals that are better absorbed in smaller amounts, sea moss shouldn’t be taken by one spoon after another or more than two tablespoons per day. When will you be able to track the sea moss weight loss before and after outcomes?

Well, sea moss needs some time to surprise you with the results! The very first outcomes may be noticed in a few weeks of regular seaweed use. Notice that you shouldn’t replace your nourishing meal with a sea moss gel.

However, sea moss gel works well as a great low-calorie and fiber-rich snack!
