Irish Moss looks so much like moss that most people cannot be convinced otherwise until it blooms. The tiny white flowers, though, are proof that this rock garden miniature is not even related to moss, which are primitive plants that never bloom. Irish moss makes a dense, bright green mat of tiny leaves and tiny stems. Its tiny white flowers are borne singly but are often numerous enough to nearly cover the plant.
Irish Moss contains 15 of the 18 elements that make up the human body, including Vitamins A, D, E, F and K. It also contains high amounts of iodine, calcium and sodium as well as sulphur, potassium and phosphorus. Irish Moss aids in bladder disorders, bronchitis, halitosis (bad breath), intestinal disorders, glandular problems, goiter, swollen joints, lung difficulties, thyroid conditions, tuberculosis, tumors, ulcers and varicose veins. Also helps to soften the skin and prevent wrinkles.
It’s a form of seaweed containing polysaccharides, vitamins, minerals, and iodine. The extract is known as carrageenan, a starch-like substance. This extract can be further differentiated into two types, k-carrageenan and I-carrageenan. The former type is the gelling fraction; the latter form is the non-gelling component.
Irish moss can be used for symptoms of colds and flu, thus the eating of Irish moss forms an effective barrier to the ills of winter. There are also body lotions that use Irish moss in their recipes.
