Chondrus Crispus also known as sea moss or irish moss is a species of red algae. Sea Moss has 92 of 102 minerals that the body needs along with Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K which can be ingested orally and used externally. (I like adding mine to smoothies and teas or just taking 2 tablespoons by mouth a day.)
