Something we all need, as we are faced with environmental pollutants on a daily basis!

 To prepare I chose to have it with some pure pineapple juice I had on want to get the freshest, most unrefined juice you can, better yet squeeze your own oranges or make fresh juice in a juicer.
 It's recommended to have 1/4 to 1/2 tsp with 4-6oz of juice. I chose to use half a tsp with slightly more juice, as I was sharing it with someone who also wanted to try it out.  They were surprised with how smoothly it went down:)
It blended very well in the juice after a good stir. I was very surprised at how well the sweet pineapple juice masked any seaweed taste it may have had. The product on its own does have a slight ocean smell, as any pure seaweed would, but was practically undetected while mixed in the juice.  It was definitely not hard to drink down:) I look forward to drinking it daily, and experiencing it's benefits!

Directions on how to use Brown Seaweed Extract: 
  • The best serving size is around 1/4 - 1/2 TSP of extract in 4-6 oz of juice.
  • It is best to use pure, fresh squeezed orange juice, or any other fresh juices. 
  • Stir well, it may clumps at the bottom, so give it a few good stirs. 
  • The sweet fruit juices will dilute the brown seaweed's naturally strong flavor.
  • Be sure to drink at least 8 oz of pure water, ideally with a couple drops of ionic magnesium minerals added, after drinking the brown seaweed extract drink. 
  • Continue to drink this once per day in the morning before breakfast.
