Sea vegetables, which are valued as "The Golden Vegetables of the Sea," contain an abundance of minerals, vitamins, and dietary fiber. All living organisms are believed to have spent the majority of evolution in the ocean before coming on land. As we absorbed the minerals of the ocean during evolution, we possess amazingly similar constituent parts of the ocean. Similarly, sea vegetables that are also grown in the ocean absorb an abundance of minerals from the sea and are called "the Treasure of Minerals." Therefore, eating sea vegetables which contain essential nutrients, minerals, is equal to us absorbing the constituents of the ocean. The Japanese, who are world famous for their longevity, have eaten sea vegetables in their daily meals for a long time. There are several possible reasons that contribute to the longevity: the climate, the way of life, close relationships with others, etc. But most of all, the eating habit, especially eating sea vegetables, is believed to be the main reason for the Japanese people living long and healthy lives.
