When I initially started using Irish Sea Moss gel, I was looking for a natural way to alleviate my sinus congestion and seasonal allergies, but oh boy, I got so much more! The seasonal allergies seemed to have been triggered at the start of my menopause. I never had any issues with seasonal allergies until I turned fifty, along with hot flashes, irritability, fatigue, and weight gain. To say Irish Sea Moss is a superfood sounds outrageous, but it literally is. Sea Moss gel addresses nearly every side effect of menopause, and with consistent use, it not only alleviates, but also virtually gets rid of symptoms. I believe in the power of sea moss because I’m familiar with the research and science behind it, and I know first hand what it has done for me.

Menopausal women often experience weight gain due to the imbalance of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. Sea moss is one of the best natural sources of iodine. Iodine plays an important role in regulating one’s metabolism, decreasing weight gain, and balancing hormones, or as I like to call them horror-moans. Sea moss is also a great source of natural iron, actually containing 9mg of iron per 100g, meaning it has nine times more iron than chicken. This is especially useful since I also follow a plant-based diet. Since incorporating sea moss into my daily diet, my energy levels and metabolism has increased to the point where I have finally been able to lose those stubborn menopausal pounds. In addition, it is an excellent source of natural dietary fiber which fills me up quicker and has allowed me to keep those menopausal extra pounds off and maintain my goal weight.

The most well-known side effect of menopause are the hot flashes; they come at any time of day and/or night. The magnesium and vitamin B6 found in sea moss help provide a natural remedy for hot flashes. After a month of consistent use of sea moss, I noticed that my hot flashes had decreased—from multiple hot flashes practically every hour each day to maybe one per hour—and now my hot flashes are virtually gone. In fact, now I’m the one in the household asking if it’s cold in here. 

Menopausal women also suffer from irritability and mood swings. Being a superfood, sea moss is packed with potassium, tryptophan, vitamin B6, and selenium—all of which have been known to reduce cortisol levels which improve mental health and mood. My stress and irritability, once greatly aggravated by my menopause, are much more manageable.

Unfortunately, menopause also wreaks havoc on our bones; this is mostly due to the loss of estrogen. Irish Sea Moss contains vitamin D, calcium, manganese, and zinc which helps bone and joint health by decreasing swelling around the joints, allowing for increased mobility. 

Menopausal women also have a higher risk of heart disease. Omega fatty acids, folic acid potassium, vitamin D, and magnesium are all natural nutrients that sea moss contains that help to improve circulation and lower the bad cholesterol (LDL) levels in the blood, which can improve overall heart health and function. 

Menopause is an inevitable stage of life that all women will experience.  The horror-moans don’t have to lead to a nightmarish existence. While there are many different ways of managing menopause, I prefer a more natural, holistic approach. That is why I advocate for using Sea Moss gel. The Earth provides us with a natural way to combat or alleviate most all menopausal symptoms  through a simple plant that is found in the ocean.
