The Science-Based Health Benefits of Irish Sea Moss

The Science-Based Health Benefits of Irish Sea Moss

Irish Sea Moss, a type of red algae, is a key component of The Wellness Company's "Spike Support Formula," which was designed to counteract the long-lasting effects of harmful COVID-19 spike proteins and support overall health. In today’s article, we’ll be delving into the science behind this unique health-promoting ingredient.

Benefits of Irish Sea Moss 

  • Rich in Nutrients: Irish Sea Moss is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It contains 92 of the 102 essential minerals our bodies need, including iodine, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Think of it like a natural multivitamin. 

  • Supports Digestive Health: The “mucilaginous” texture of sea moss aids in soothing the mucous membranes in the body, promoting a healthy gut. Research also shows that Irish sea moss acts as a rich food source for the beneficial bacteria in the gut which form the gut microbiome.

  • Boosts the Immune System: The antioxidants present in sea moss help fight off free radicals, thereby strengthening the immune system. Specifically, based on research in worms, we know that Irish sea moss supplementation activates genes associated with supporting the innate immune response. 

  • Anti-Cancer Potential: In some studies, compounds from red seaweeds have demonstrated anti-cancer activity in mice. 

  • Promotes Skin Health: Due to its vitamin and mineral-rich composition, sea moss can be beneficial for the skin, helping to hydrate and repair. 

  • Enhances Energy Levels: Being rich in B vitamins, it may play a role in maintaining energy levels and keeping fatigue at bay. 

Other Ingredients in Our Spike Support Formula 

The Wellness Company’s Spike Support Formula not only contains Irish Sea Moss, but a host of other ingredients with both specific implications for facilitating spike detoxification and improving general wellness:

  • Nattokinase: An effective fibrinolytic, it not only has been shown to degrade the spike protein in vitro, but it is also known to support healthy blood flow and vascular function. 
  • Selenium: Mediates a host of cellular repair processes.
  • Dandelion Root: Has been shown to block the spike protein’s ability to bind to cells by 80%. 
  • Black Cumin Seed: This natural extract has been shown to be effective in both early and late-stage prevention of pulmonary fibrosis and inflammation (both long-term effects of spike proliferation). 
  • Green Tea Extract: A powerful free radical scavenger.

The Bottom Line 

Irish Sea Moss, with its rich nutrient profile and myriad health benefits, has emerged as a potent aid in the fight against the long-lasting effects of COVID-19. It forms part of TWC’s Spike Support Formula, which offers an evidence-informed, comprehensive approach to counteracting the harmful effects of COVID-19 spike proteins to keep your body functioning at its best.
