Brown algae ( Ascophyllum nodosum )
The brown seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum grows in the cold depths of the sea off Norway. Of all the species of brown algae, only those that wash ashore are the most nutrient-rich. Also, due to the unique nature of the Arctic, those growing there are considered to be much more nutritious than those growing in the southern parts of the globe.
Sea brown algae, which is harvested in the Arctic Ocean, contains 200 times more iron than beetroot ( it is the most iron-rich vegetable ).
They contain 100 times more iodine than any vegetable known to date.
Calcium in them is 14 times more than cow’s milk.
The brown algae Ascophyllum nodosum contains many vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and polysaccharides.
