Abstaining from alcohol for the month of January is becoming increasingly common.It’s now known that seaweeds are great for a body detox but did you know seaweeds are brilliant for liver detoxification. Seaweeds contain sodium alginate which absorbs toxins from the digestive tract.
Kelp is a type of seaweed that is particularly rich in algin and green seaweed is rich in chlorophyll, a green pigment containing special fibres that bind to and remove toxins from the body.So don’t just rest your liver detox it with seaweed.
So if you are back on the sauce in February and feeling hungover, try a little seaweed and find out how to cure a hangover.

Just had to share the new seaweed sleepwear from Leticia Credidio her new seaweed sleepwear and how it protects the skin.
Leticia Credidio is an Italian-Japanese Brazilian born designer based in East London and Milan. Leticia worked at the intersection of design and social change for more than 12 years, and after experiencing the detrimental health impacts of overwork and a lack of sleep, she decided to put her creative energy into establishing conscious sleepwear.
Sustainability Starts From Within
Having worked with many great NGOs and environmental projects, Leticia realised that sustainability starts from within. She made the decision to create a sustainable sleepwear brand that has its core mission to unleash the power of sleep as it’s the essential ingredient for a life better-lived.
Together with her production team every decision they make, from the materials they use to where they produce the garments, pushes the boundaries of care and consideration. All products are organic and certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).
This summer Leticia Credidio launched the Ocean collection. Not only perfect for lounging and very long breakfasts, it is also a homage to our beloved oceans and coral reefs. This limited-edition collection is created of sustainable and certified seaweed fabrics that are made and weaved in Germany (SeacellTM/OEKO-TEX–TEX Micromodal). A process not taken lightly, yet Leticia persisted on using this environmentally friendly material, that is good for your skin as well.
Protecting the Skin with Seaweed
The unique properties of seaweed helps to protect our skin against the harmful environmental influences, which we are exposed to in our daily lives. The fabric releases a soft hydration on skin. So you can sleep and lounge beautifully, and wake boldly. Congratulations Leticia on such beautiful inovation and design.
