1) Nori Sheets are close to 40% Protein by weight. That's twice the Protein of Soy Beans and 4 times the protein of Beef Liver.

2) Nori Sheets have more than 10 times the Calcium by weight then Milk and Dairy Products

3) Nori contains more vitamin C by weight then Raw Oranges

4) Nori contains substantial amounts of Biologically Active B-12 and is the most suitable vitamin B-12 Source presently available for Vegetarians

5) Nori is Rich in essential Amino Acids such as Methionine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Alanine, and Glycine

6) Nori is found to contain Anti Oxidant compounds such as Chlorophyll and Phycoerythrin and is a great source of Polysacorides which help modulate Immune response, and has beneficial effects on gut function and micro biota acting as a prebiotics.

7) Results suggest that porphyrn from this species effectively decreases LDL Cholesterol while increasing High Density Lipoproteins or "Good Cholesterol"

8) Nori is very high in Omega 3 and in fact has 16 times higher Omega 3 then Omega 6 which make it one of the nest sources of Omega 3 available. Just one sheet (3 grams) of Nori has more Omega 3 then 2 FULL AVOCADOS. The Polyunsaturated Fats  play an important role in regulating inflammation and proper brain and nervous system functioning.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING NORI & THE JAPAN EARTHQUAKE DISASTER:

The Tsunami disaster occurred off the northern coast of Japan on the Pacific Ocean side.  Our Nori growing site is in a 4000 acre Certified Organic growing area located below the southern tip of Japan in the Sea of Japan near the China coast.  To be classified as Internationally Certified Organic growing waters, the area is weekly tested and must have an minimum of 3 year continuous "Clean" results to make this classification.  The "Ecocert" program based in France, is much stricter then the USDA Organic program.

The prevailing winds and currents near Japan, travel from south to north, eventually circling around and head from north to south down the western coast of the United States.  Even though there was virtually no threat to our geographic location, our factory conducted Daily Radiation Testing early on with continued testing still on going.  All tests have shown 100 % non detectable results.

In addition, we send samples to an independent Lab located here in the U.S. (New Jersey)  We test for all known isotopes of Radiation from earthquake disaster and have been found 100 % non detectable in all categories.

Please be assured that our Raw Organic Nori is safe and unaffected. We will continue to constantly monitor our supply to ensure the safety of our customers.
