Can Breastfeeding Moms Safely Take Sea Moss?

When you are a mom, you are sensitive. Not for yourself, not for anyone else, but the little soul feeding on you. So you make sure you are not taking anything that may affect your baby. What mom eats has a direct effect on how the baby will react. 

In today's blog, we will discuss the most widely asked question of what will be the effect of sea moss on mother and child health, specifically what effect it will have on the baby. 

To start, let's discuss what sea moss is. It is a natural marine alga found worldwide in warm waters, especially on the Atlantic ocean's rocky coasts. It is harvested and used as a natural health tonic and supplement for your body problems. Even if you are not sick, taking sea moss in powder or another form will improve your immune system and digestive function, relieve skin problems and even reduce anxiety. This is the very reason it is getting popular among health-conscious people worldwide. 

What is the composition of sea moss?

Being natural, sea moss is rich in natural and all essential nutrients, amino acids and vitamins that are needed for proper functioning. After years of research and sifting through a copious amount of health-related data, researchers have found out that sea moss is rich in the following things:

  • Vitamin A 
  • Idoine 
  • Zinc
  • Magnesium 
  • Potassium 
  • Essential amino acids
  • Vitamin B 
  • Antioxidants 
  • Vitamin C 

These are some of the handful of nutrients that we can list here. Many others are found in it, such as fibre and sulfated polysaccharides. 

Is sea moss safe for children?

Well, no one is going to give their breastfeeding child sea moss. They won't be able to handle it directly. So a mother is a route these nutrients can reach the child, which plays an essential role in developing a normal baby. For example, iodine is necessary for brain growth, intelligence and neuron development. When the mother takes it, it is indirectly delivered to the child, where it plays its role in brain development. Then comes vitamin A which is essential for eye development. Again, a mother will provide it to her child where it will do its function. So everything that works for adults will also work for the child, but it will be delivered in smaller quantities as needed for a tiny baby. So, in the end, we can say that sea moss is entirely safe for the child and the mother during the breastfeeding stage and even is essential for the better growth of the baby.
