Wakame is a sea vegetable, or an edible seaweed. It has a subtly sweet flavour and is most often served in soups and salads. Sea-farmers have grown wakame in Japan since the Nara Period. It is believed that a compound found in wakame known as fucoxanthin can help burn fatty tissue.
This edible seaweed is a rich source of eicosapentaenoic acid, and omega -3 fatty acid. At over 400 mg/ (100 kcal) or almost 1 mg/kJ, it has one of the higher nutrient-to-energy ratios for this nutrient, and among the very highest for a vegetarian source also has high levels of magnesium, Sodium, Calcium, Iodine, Thiamine, Vitamins A.C.E & K and Niacin.*
Magnesium. This mineral is critical in the contraction and relaxation of muscles, function of certain enzymes in the body, production and transport of energy, and the production of protein.*
- Iodine.Iodine is needed for strong metabolism of cells - the process of converting food into energy. It also maintains the balance of the thyroid gland and is needed for the production of thyroid hormones.*
- Calcium. Wakame easily allows for the absorption of calcium into the human body. Each 100 grams of raw wakame contains 150 milligrams of calcium. Calcium is needed for strong healthy bones and the prevention of osteoporosis.*
- Iron. We need iron because it is essential for the production of red blood cells and the prevention of anemia.*
Vitamins A, C, E, and K. These vitamins are all amazing for skin health and repair as well as immunology.*
Vitamin D. Promotes the absorption of calcium for healthy bones and enhances the nerve, muscle, and immune systems.*
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2). We need riboflavin to use the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in the foods we eat. Riboflavin helps us use these nutrients for energy in our bodies for growth and is also necessary for red blood cell production. Riboflavin functions as an antioxidant and works in the body with other vitamins such as niacin, folate, and vitaminB6.*
