New England Rock Moss is a holistic wellness company in Scituate, MA that harvests Irish moss and various seaweeds. The company believes these sea vegetables bring an abundance of nutrients to the table such as high iron, potassium, DI-Iodothyronine, fiber, and many more. These nutrients help and support mental health, energy, digestion, immune system health, thyroid disorder, and weight loss. The dried sea vegetables are great for smoothies, dips, and sprinkled in salads.
