Dulse has been used as food by Northern European coastal peoples for millennia.
Seaweeds are the richest source of assimilable minerals on the planet. After nori, dulse is the highest in protein of the popular sea vegeatables; Maine Coast and Nova Scotia dulse tested at 22% protein.
As its rust-red color suggests, dulse is very high in iron. Dulse contains many easily assimilated minerals and trace elements. Maine Coast and Nova Scotia dulse tested high in B6 and B12 vitamins. Although dulse tastes very salty, the Maine Coast dulse tested relatively low in sodium (1740mg/100g) and high in potassium (7820mg/100g).
The nutritional benefits of sea vegetables are astounding. As they grow, they convert inorganic minerals from seawater into organic mineral salts that combine with amino acids and are readily available to the body. They are abundant in calcium, iron, protein, iodine, niacin, thiamin, and vitamins A, C, E, and B12. More importantly, with the decline in the quality of topsoil due to modern farming practices, including sea vegetables in the diet may be the only way of getting essential trace minerals.
Recent research has suggested that Dulse may help reverse hardening of the arteries, reduce high blood pressure, regress and prevent tumors, and even remove toxic metals from our bodies by transforming them into harmless salts (via a substance called alginic acid) that are easily eliminated. They help purify and strengthen the bloodstream by alkalizing it if it is too acidic and reducing any excess stores of fat and mucus.
In addition, Dulse strengthen the intestines, digestive system, liver, pancreas, and sexual organs; enhance mental clarity and awareness; and promote beautiful skin and hair.
A small amount of Dulse will provide more than 100% of the daily amount of Vitamin B6, and 66% of Vitamin B12. A days supply of "organic" Iron and natural Fluoride for great for strong teeth. It is relatively low in Sodium and high in Potassium.

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on powerful cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives."
-- Dean Ornish, M.D.
A balanced diet and regular physical activity are the building blocks of good health. Poor eating habits and too little physical activity can lead to overweight and related health problems. By eating right and being active, you can enjoy good health and remain active throughout your life. Whether you are trying to maintain good health, or trying to get well from cancer, you should take a look at your eating habits and try to improve them. Unfortunately, most people in the western world, including many so-called vegetarians, get little or no real nutrition. With the abundance of food available to us, this should not be the case.

There have been many wonderful advances in science and technology, but there is an alarming increase in disease and sickness due to destructive habits and the over indulgences of our society. Today, habit and appetite are at war with nature. The results are seen in most of our lives as many experience some minor or major breakdown of their health.
God's promise still stands—if we incorporate His principles of health into our lives, then none of the diseases of this world will befall us. Listed below are God's 8 Laws of Health, taken from the "owner's manual". Click on a title to learn more.
