From Sea to Store
Knowing where your seaweed is from, the water quality, sustainability of harvest, and how it is processed are essential factors in ensuring it is safe and highly nutritious.
Seaweed is a forgotten food, which was widely used in the past as one of the most abundant sources of natural nutrition. Despite this, there is often limited awareness of seaweed for health and nutrition, and with many people unsure how to use and benefit from seaweed.
Doctor Seaweed® is on a mission to educate and advise people on the amazing health benefits of seaweed and make it easy to incorporate seaweed into their daily lifestyle and diets.
Our PureSea® Natural Organic Hebridean Ascophyllum Seaweed is sustainably wild harvested around the remote islands of the Scottish Outer Hebrides. These pristine waters are carefully monitored and managed, with exclusive harvesting rights from the Crown Estate.
Having our dedicated manufacturing operation allow us full control and traceability throughout our supply chain so customers can be assured of our quality.
Our seaweed is carefully dried and milled using International Patent Pending technologies which result in a high quality, nutrient rich and fully traceable production process.
As part of the wide range of nutrition and safety tests we carry out, we also uniquely DNA Authenticate every batch to ensure full traceability and authenticity.
We are leading numerous research projects with our university partners in the UK to further understand seaweed’s multiple health benefits and how it can work in a wide range of products.
