WHAT IT IS: A species of kelp wild grown in Tasmania and Patagonia that’s hand harvested from the pristine ocean waters in line with its seasonal cycle to ensure environmentally sustainable growth.

BENEFITS: Once harvested, wakame is immediately dried to retain the natural bioactivity of its active component, fucoidan. Fucoidan has been shown to boost immunity, along with numerous gut and digestive health benefits. The nutrient-rich seaweed is also vitamins A, C, E and K and can contribute to keratin formation for strong hair and nails.
