One of the reasons for the longevity of Okinawans in Japan is that their daily intake of kelp is 1.5 times the national average of Japan. The slimy mucus on the surface of kelp is a water-soluble dietary fiber rich in alginic acid, potassium, calcium and other minerals.
Professor Higashi Keisuke of Himeji Institute of Technology divides mice that are susceptible to high blood pressure into two groups. One group fed salt, one group fed the same amount of salt and potassium alginate. As a result, the blood pressure of the rats in the former group increased, and the blood pressure of the rats in the latter group decreased. After the original potassium alginate entered the stomach, under the action of gastric acid, alginate and potassium were decomposed and then entered the intestine. Since the intestinal tract is alkaline, the decomposed alginic acid is easily combined with sodium and excreted with the urine; and potassium is absorbed by the intestinal wall, and the two work together to reduce blood pressure.
Scientists have experimented with soaking kelp with 50Â°C to 60Â°C water. The soaked concentrated kelp water is given orally to hypertensive patients. After 10 minutes, the patient's blood pressure was 8-9 mm Hg; after 1 hour, it was decreased by 17.3 mm Hg; after 4 hours, it was decreased by 21.5 mm Hg. Alginic acid is also easily absorbed by the intestine after absorption of cholesterol, so it can lower the cholesterol index.
Kelp also contains large amounts of iodine, can promote luteinization of ovarian follicles, reduce the level of estrogen in the body, thereby eliminating the hidden dangers of breast hyperplasia. In addition, kelp has beauty, hairdressing, weight loss and other health effects. Experts suggest that it is best for adults to eat 5 grams of dried seaweed per day and cook it with soy sauce, tofu, radish, taro and fish balls.
