i was always told it keeps skin and hair healthy, specially eating konbu seaweed and black sesame. the health benifit of seaweed is to stop getting bald stop hair falling out, to keep hair roots healthy then we should eat that i was told. but i been eating that for such a long time so its no big deal. wakame in soup, konbu in stew, dried nori too, or paste over rice. its all delicious. its basically a just vegetable that grows in the sea.NVDisMa729 said:This guy on this tv show is saying that if u eat seaweed on a regular basis you will live longer & be healthier.
