7 Lucky Benefits of Irish Sea Moss

Listen to Irish Sea Moss Podcast

This red alga is a multi-vitamin in a moss, it’s nutrient-dense, with 92 of the 102 minerals that make up the human body.
Also referred to as Chondrus crispus or carrageen moss, is another health supplement used since time immemorial, it’s native to the windswept, rocky, jagged coasts of Ireland, Scotland, and the Northern Atlantic coasts.

Legend has it that a race of mythological giants which once populated the green isles of the North Atlantic grew to tremendous size thanks to the fantastic Nutriceitical properties of sea moss, perhaps they built Giant’s Causeway in Ireland?

It’s been studied widely with over 150 scientific papers published and listed on Pubmed. Here we’ll break down its wide range of benefits…

Iodine Source

Many of its health benefits are due to its significant Iodine content. Iodine deficiency is a historic health problem that is making a serious comeback, it’s at the heart of many of the chronic diseases that the masses suffer from. Anecdotally, this form of Iodine supplementation results in…

  • Great levels of energy and motivation.
  • Rejuvenating and restorative sleep.
  • Enhanced immunity and bodily capacity to beat back viral infections.

From a recent Danish study out of Nuuk, Greenland (yes, Denmark owns Greenland, at least until Donald Trump buys it)

Dietary iodine is important to human health, and both low and high iodine intake levels increase the risk of disease… the iodine content of edible seaweeds in the Arctic is very high and bioavailable.

Thyroid Health

Our health and wellbeing depend so much on our Thyroid and the hormones it produces. Irish Sea Moss elevates levels DIT, T4, and T3 which are crucial to Thyroid health. Not only does it supplement the Thyroid hormones you need, but it also gives your body the precursor chemicals it needs for future hormone production.
It’s radioprotective, if you’re concerned about 5G radiation, EMFs, or the next Chernobyl catastrophe happening somewhere near you it would be a really good idea to support your Thyroid function with something like Irish Sea Moss.

Respiratory Health

You probably don’t smoke but maybe those near you do, or perhaps you live in a big, bustling city with a pollution problem (check your local pollution levels here on Numbeo). If so you should be highly concerned with your respiratory health and along with a decent air purification system (or at least filling your home with green non-plastic plants), you would want to supplement something like Irish Sea Moss.
It’s rich in Potassium Chloride, which soothes inflammation of lung membranes, which mitigates build of phlegm which often happens in the cold winter months. It’s been used since time immemorial to prevent and treat the common cold, Pneumonia, and bronchitis.

Immune Support

If you’ve ever been to Ireland, you’ll invariably think to yourself…

It’s dreadfully cold, wet and windy here — how did people ever manage to survive and thrive here without all the technological insulations of modernity?

I’d wager that Irish Moss certainly has something to do with that! Among many other nutrients, it contains Vitamins A, C, E, F, and K along with B vitamins, magnesium protein, beta-carotene, pectin, and sulfur which empower immunity.

Weight Loss

Irish Sea Moss helps those trying to shed a few pounds as it’s an appetite suppressant. You’re probably aware that cheap junk food is designed to make you feel hungry and continue eating impulsively, Irish Sea Moss is the opposite of this, it produces a feeling of fullness and satiety which makes it ideal for biohackers and the longevity obsessed who actively practice caloric restriction and go without a lot of eating.
The Iodine in it further empowers metabolism driving weight loss. When you’re Iodine deficient you’re like a wimpy economy car with a little four-banger, a four-cylinder engine. When your Iodine levels are healthy, you’re like a high performance V8 vehicle. The high performance vehicle takes more fuel but it also burns more fuel. This translates into weight loss and leaner you.


Delightful digestion is for many a daily challenge. Luckily, Irish Sea Moss exerts an anti-inflammation effect on the digestive tract and intestines which could provide much-needed relief to those who suffer from digestive dysfunction.
The gelatin content assuages heartburn, gastritis, dyspepsia, nausea, and indigestion.


Funny thing, Jamaican love Irish Moss, it grows there and is popularly used as a libido enhancer and a full-spectrum Nutriceutical. While there are no studies evaluating it as a libido enhancer, go watch some Youtube videos of Jamaicans singing praises about it. If you want to get your wine on like a Jamaican, Irish Sea Moss is for you!

I’m a big believer in heritage biohacks

If your last name begins with Mc… or if an ancestry report reveals that a lot of your genes hail from a cold place in Northern Europe, sea moss was good enough for your great-great-great-grandmother. So it should be good enough for you!

Infinite Age offers Wildcrafted Capsuled Irish Sea Moss

As with many Nutriceutical supplements, there’s a quality concern as not all Irish Moss is created equal. Factory-farmed sea moss is predictably cheaper, toxic, and nutrient-deficient as it’s produced in a swimming pool. You want to get wildcrafted sea moss that a snorkeler harvested (I’m glad that my job isn’t snorkeling in the North Atlantic!) But of course, wildcrafted stuff can also be problematic because our oceans are badly polluted, Infinite Age Irish Sea Moss is tested for purity and lack of toxicity by an accredited American laboratory, which makes it not cheap but considering the nutrient richness of legit sea moss and the pollution of the environment it’s a smart buy!
