Wild Atlantic Rockweed - Nourishing Brown Seaweed for General Well-Being
Ascophyllum nodosum, commonly known as rockweed or knotted wrack, is a type of brown seaweed that grows abundantly along North Atlantic coastlines. It can be found in the intertidal and sub-littoral zones where it can grow over 30 inches tall in calm waters. Rockweed is rich in minerals, vitamins, and bioactive compounds such as fucoidan, a sulfated polysaccharide with anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, immune-enhancing, and antiviral properties. It is also an excellent source of iodine.
Rockweed is often used as a powder in green drinks and teas, or in nutritional supplements for people, animals, and plants, and it is also tinctured for medicinal extracts. Its high mineral and trace element content creates an alkalizing effect in the body. Our certified organic rockweed products are harvested from the cold, clean waters of the North Atlantic. They are dried at mild temperatures to preserve heat-sensitive nutrients.
