Dulse Rhodymenia palmata
Dulse contains significant levels of calcium and potassium which help your bones strengthen and become more resilient. Benefits of dulse also include helping to lower your blood pressure, improve your eye sight and improve the health of your thyroid gland.
Builds Strong Bones
There are a wealth of minerals found in dulse, including calcium, magnesium, and iron, all of which contribute to bone mineral density. These minerals can also help protect joints and tissues, helping to keep you stronger into your old age.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Potassium is another of the essential minerals found in high supply within dulse. Potassium is well-known as a vasodilator, meaning that it can help reduce the strain and damage to blood vessels and arteries caused by high blood pressure. Helping to lower blood pressure also protects against atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, strokes, and heart attacks.
The high levels of vitamin A found in dulse make it an ideal solution for vision problems.
Boosts the Immune System
Dulse is rich in vitamin C, thus helping the body increase its white blood cell count and contributing to growth and repair through its important role in collagen production.  Keeping the immune system in working order is crucial for overall health, and vitamin C is one of the easiest and most readily accessible ways to do that.
Similar to seaweed, dulse is very high in dietary fiber, meaning that adding it to one’s diet helps to regulate digestive processes, particularly for people suffering from constipation or diarrhea.
Strengthens Nervous System
What many people don’t know is that polyunsaturated fatty acids are not only important for heart health, but also for the efficient functioning of your brain and nervous system. Studies have linked high levels of omega-3 fatty acids (found in good concentrations in dulse) with improved brain activity and nervous system function.
Improves Blood Circulation
There is a huge amount of iron found in dulse, as in seaweed, and given iron’s role in the production of hemoglobin, adding this type of seaweed to your diet will aid in circulation.
Many of the vitamins and minerals found in dulse, both alone and in conjunction, provide a huge amount of antioxidant support against free radicals.
