the real Gracilaria Seaweed (aka sea moss)! 

This sea moss is dried (but still pliable and moist from sea salt.) 

Sea moss is a red algae species. It is highly nutritious, containing many minerals and lubricating properties for the glands and joints.

It does not have much taste or color, which helps it to blend well with all types of dishes. The ancient Irish folklore medicine used this moss for treating people from several medical conditions like tuberculosis and pneumonia.

It is also rich in anti-viral properties that help in treating viral infections and illnesses. Sea moss is a wonderful addition to the diet, several times a week or even daily, to strengthen ligaments and joints and to counteract the musculoskeletal effects of Lyme.
