Girl, I Got Me Some Sea Moss! (TNT Sea Moss Man Review, Benefits and Uses)


Since switching to the plant based and holistic lifestyle, I've always heard about sea moss and it was immediately placed on my "to try" list. When I visited St. Kitts, I finally got the chance to try a sea moss drink from the Life Span vegan food truck (the owner gave it to me for the free-free because I came there regularly) and I tried another drink at Pinney's Beach in Nevis. Both were A-1 and I had to have more.

First off, let's get into the details.

What Is Sea Moss?

Sea moss, or Irish Moss as it's called in some parts of the Caribbean, is a type of red algae that grows in the rocky parts of the Atlantic areas of North America. It's popularly been used in the West Indies for centuries and has currently gotten more well known in the U.S., especially in health conscious communities. The late herbalist teacher affectionately known as Dr. Sebi discussed sea moss and its benefits plentiful during his lifetime.

Benefits of Sea Moss

Sea moss contains 92 of the 102 essential minerals that make up our bodies. It's used for everything from reproductive support to aiding in thyroid health. It can be used both internally and topically.

I purchased a 12oz bottle of sea moss gel from TNT Sea Moss Man. Great quality, lovely packaging, arrived super fast. Seriously, no complaints over here. I'm about ready to order my next batch.



How To Use It

Sea Moss is caught in the sea of course and it is usually sold in its raw form. It's also popularly sold as a gel and sometimes as a powder. Based on my research, making the gel is super easy as well. Sea moss is usually paired with the bladderwrack herb, but it's not 100% necessary.

The moss is used in smoothies, drinks, and in food dishes too. It doesn't have a strong taste or smell so it's perfect to add into your healthy plant based meals.


I used it in a plant based brownie ball dish I made (I'll give the recipe deets soon) and I added a scoop in a kale banana smoothie.

I also added a bit into my weekly clay mask.

As sea moss is getting more known, there's a lot of fake sea moss a foot. Sea moss should be wild crafted, not pool crafted. I prefer to get mine from the Caribbean or from a person with a direct Caribbean connect whether they're from there, have family from there or if they get it directly from there. TNT Sea Moss man gets his from Trinidad so that's a-okay with me. Please do your own thorough research and speak with your doctor or physician if need be before using sea moss.

I'm so excited on this sea moss journey and I can't wait to create more recipes with it! Next superfood will be sour sop.
