How much sea moss to take daily?

Answering the “how much sea moss to take daily” question right off the bat, your safe dose of sea moss gel (the most popular sea moss product) is two tablespoons distributed per day.

The best way to identify the ideal dose is to grab your wondrous seaweed jar, find the label, and see what it says about the sea moss dosage! You can never be too careful — consult your healthcare provider before sticking to sea moss.

  • Rare to never under the weather. Vitamins A, E, and C consolidate your immunity and make you highly resistant to viruses.
  • Solid gut health. Omega fatty acids along with the antioxidants soothe your mucous membrane, easing off inflammation(1). Sea moss also has a significant prebiotic effect on your guts!(2)
  • Clean and shiny skin. The dense antioxidant content (3) (retinol, vitamin E, and C) makes your skin glowy, while also helping it reach flawlessness.
  • Inexhaustible energy. By nourishing your entire body with all the necessary vitamins, sea moss will help you increase your energy levels, fostering cheerfulness and motivation in you.
  • Deep sleep. Rich in amino acids like GABA(4), glycine, taurine, and tyrosine, Chondrus crispus supplements taken before sleep may help fight insomnia and accomplish restful, deeper sleep.

Is the sea moss overdose possible?

If you wonder whether sea moss overdose is a possible case, you shouldn’t think of this alga as a superfood, but as a powerhouse of nutrients. What will happen if you take too much iodine? Phosphorus? Iron?

Every nutrient of sea moss taken too much will cause unpleasant side effects. But you shouldn’t worry as soon as you adhere to what the instructions on the label say! After all, the difference between poison and medicine is in the dose, they say.

What will happen if you eat too much sea moss?

There are people who have been taking Red algae supplements for decades without skipping a day (We were lucky to interview a few of them!). Some of them were using sea moss before the right dosage was even identified, and they had to put their health at stake.

“This is a super powerful healing food. It's a super powerful detoxifier. And you don't need a lot. You just need a tiny little bit to get the maximum effect.”

Too much sea moss might be uneasy on your stomach. Additionally, it may lead to an overdose of some minerals, such as copper, iron, and iodine. We strongly recommend staying behind the line of 2 tablespoons a day.


Irish sea moss is a powerful new superfood found in oceans all over the globe.

It is a powerful friend to your inner and outer health. It consolidates your immunity and guts, improves your skin, energy, and sleep, and brings a lot more benefits.

The recommended dose, assessed by nutritionists, is 2 tablespoons a day — or as prescribed on the product’s label. You shouldn’t take more than two tablespoons a day, as it may cause tummy discomfort.
