It contains a high amount of polysaccharides (specifically carrageenin) sulphur compounds and mucilage. Irish Moss is used to boost the body when recovering from a serious illness, due to its high content of important nutrients. It has been used to treat bronchitis, goiter, thyroid problems, and to tone and strengthen the body's glands.
