The Fucus are dark olive brown algae, they form dense tufts of up to 1m long.
They are already well known in baths and have been known for their benefits for
thousands of years: they relieve some illnesses such as joint pain, obesity, skin
problems, respiratory problems and even assist in weight loss! You only need to look
at the Asian morphology to understand its powerful effect!
These algae are rich in vitamin B22.214.171.124.12, C, D, Z, E, as well as a long list of trace
elements, copper, chromium, zinc, selenium, iron, manganese, cobalt, nickel, boron
titanium. Furthermore, Fucus are exceptionally rich in fibre and with their high
iodine content, they act as a "fat burner". They are widely used as laxatives and as
natural appetite suppressant.
They have a very pronounced iodine flavour, which can make it unpleasant for some
individuals. In a sprinkle form, they can be used as a condiment, more like pepper.
Otherwise, they are used in powder form in your bathroom, home spa, or in soaps.
However, it is important to note that these algae are not recommended for
individuals suffering from thyroid problems.
