Health benefits of Wakame:

* Wakame is low in calories but supplies a good amount of important nutrients. Even in small amounts, it can help boost your intake of minerals like iodine, manganese, folate, magnesium and calcium to help you meet your nutrient needs.

* Rounding out its stellar nutrient profile, wakame is a good source of iodine. Iodine is an essential mineral that your body uses to produce thyroid hormones, which help support growth, metabolism, protein synthesis and cell repair. Good for vegans and vegetarians who don't eat sea animals.

* Cholesterol plays a role in many aspects of health, ranging from hormone production to fat digestion. However, excess blood cholesterol can build up in your arteries and block blood flow, increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke. While current research is limited to animal studies, some studies have found that wakame may lower cholesterol levels and help improve heart health.
