The Power of Breath...and how it can help you de-stress

The Power of Breath...and how it can help you de-stress


Breathing is something we all do without thinking about it, but did you know that improving your breathing techniques can have many benefits for your physical and mental health? Finding a few minutes each day to focus on deep breathing and relaxation can help to reduce stress, increase energy levels, and promote overall well-being.

Learning to breathe better can also  have a significant impact on the nervous system, particularly the autonomic nervous system (ANS).

The ANS is responsible for regulating many of the body's internal functions, such as heart rate, breathing, digestion, and immune system function. It has two main branches, the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), which work together to maintain homeostasis in the body.

When we're under stress, the SNS is activated, which triggers the "fight or flight" response. This response can be helpful in certain situations, but if it's activated too often, it can lead to chronic stress, anxiety, and other health problems.

Deep breathing can help to activate the PNS, which is responsible for the "rest and digest" response. When the PNS is activated, heart rate and breathing rate slow down, blood pressure decreases, and muscles relax. This helps to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety and promote a sense of calm and relaxation.

Research has shown that practicing deep breathing and other relaxation techniques can help to reduce the activity of the SNS and increase the activity of the PNS, leading to improved physical and mental health. So by learning to breathe better, you can help to balance your nervous system and promote overall well-being.

Here are a couple techniques to help you get started:

Diaphragmatic Breathing (also known as belly breathing)

To practice this technique, sit or lie down in a comfortable position and place one hand on your belly and the other on your chest. Breathe in slowly through your nose, letting your belly rise as you inhale. Exhale slowly through your mouth, letting your belly fall. Repeat for a few minutes, focusing on the sensation of your breath moving in and out of your body. This technique can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation.

Box Breathing

Box breathing involves breathing in for a set count, holding the breath for the same count, exhaling for the same count, and then holding the breath for the same count again. For example, you might breathe in for a count of four, hold for a count of four, exhale for a count of four, and hold for a count of four before starting again. Box breathing can be done anywhere and only takes a few minutes to complete.


Learning to breathe better can have many benefits including reduced stress and anxiety, improved lung function, better sleep, increased energy, improved digestion, reduced pain, and improved focus and concentration. By incorporating deep breathing techniques into your daily routine, you can help to balance your nervous system and promote overall well-being. Experiment with different techniques and find what works best for you and your lifestyle.

Why we love Inner Beauty...and our customers do too!

We started Sea Green Health with one mission in mind:

To create a line of products that would support the health and well-being of both the humans and the planet.

Three formulas launched but a fourth one was never far behind.

In fact, we began working on the skin formula at the same time we launched the others. We just needed a bit of extra time to perfect it.

We couldn't stop talking about it or thinking about it. 

So when we finally released it, it just felt right. 

This incredible skin supplement is more than just a simple beauty product; it's a catalyst for radiance and youthful vitality.

What makes Inner Beauty so special? The answer lies in its carefully selected ingredients, each chosen for its unique ability to nourish, hydrate, and revitalize the skin.

A closer look at each of these incredible ingredients and you'll see how they work together to bring out the best in your skin.

Marine Microalgae: Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, marine microalgae is the ultimate skin superfood. By nourishing your skin from within, marine microalgae helps to restore its natural radiance, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and protect against environmental damage.

Copper and Retinol: Copper and retinol are the perfect duo for boosting collagen production and refining your complexion. Copper helps to stimulate the production of new skin cells, while retinol promotes the production of collagen, the protein that gives your skin its firm and youthful appearance.

Hyaluronic Acid and Vegan Collagen: Hydration is key to maintaining healthy, radiant skin, and that's where hyaluronic acid and vegan collagen come in. These two powerful ingredients work together to hydrate your skin and plump it up, giving you a youthful and radiant complexion.

CoQ10: Finally, CoQ10 is a potent antioxidant that fights against free radical damage. Free radicals are responsible for a host of skin problems, including fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. By protecting your skin against free radical damage, CoQ10 helps to keep your skin looking young and radiant for years to come.

Inner Beauty has the power to transform your skin from the inside out.

Is Busy Mom Self-Care Even Possible?

Is Busy Mom Self-Care Even Possible?

In a perfect world, moms would have time for all the things that keep them happy, healthy, and whole. But work, family and extra-curricular demands can often push self-care to the back burner. 

Today, our resident Holistic Health Coach, Alida with some tips for making the most of your recovery time.

"When I see a mom feeling overwhelmed, I can tell she's been prioritizing everyone but herself," Alida says. 

"There's a thread of procrastination on what makes her most happy and denying herself of the necessary time it takes to reset, recover, and truly rest."

Alida suggests:

1- Schedule self-care as sacred time: block of this time in the schedule and speak up to your family about supporting you in this alone time

2- Set boundaries with your energy: avoid taking the stress of work home with you, speak up when you need support, and learn to say NO when something doesn't support your highest good

3- Get organized: find a way that works for you to track your obligations and the time required for each. It's a lot easier to manage chores when you know how it 'fits' like a puzzle piece in your life

4- Wake up earlier than your kids to make time for grounding: this is CRUCIAL for Alida's clients. Mom's who are jolted into the day tend to stress more, choose comfort foods over nourishing foods, and feel less confident about their self-worth. Even if it's just 15 minutes, a hot shower, a quick meditation, and/or a few pages in a good book can make all the difference. 

5- Plan your meals ahead: time demands for busy moms are high so anything and everything you can do to take the pressure off is helpful. Whether you choose to meal prep your whole week ahead of time or simply just plan out which recipes you'll follow for each day, you're freeing up time and brain power to focus on other, more urgent tasks during the week. 

6- Make self-care a family affair: if you're crunched for time, try family yoga, take a bike ride, do a cooking class together, try a family at-home spa day. Be the example of health and wellbeing for the family so they see and FEEL the impact of it. 

Being a mom can be both exhausting and the most rewarding thing ever. Using these tips, you'll find that the exhausting part begins to subside.

Gut Health: The Basics

Gut Health: The Basics

Gut health is essential for overall wellness. And if you've been noticing the bigger conversations as of late, you're seeing more and more studies showing how connected the gut is to everything from digestion to mental health.

A healthy gut contains a diverse and balanced community of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa, known as the microbiome.

The microbiome is complex system that's still being discovered by the mainstream. But what we know so far is cause for a deeper look into how gut health impacts our daily life.

Here are just a few ways it impacts your health:

  1. Digestion: The gut microbiome plays a key role in digestion, breaking down food and absorbing nutrients. A healthy gut can help with regular bowel movements and prevent digestive issues like constipation and diarrhea.

  2. Immune system: The gut is home to 70% of the body's immune system, and the microbiome helps to protect against harmful bacteria and infections. A healthy gut can also reduce the risk of developing autoimmune disorders as inflammation in the gut can often be linked to the start of these issues.

  3. Mental health: The gut and brain are connected through the gut-brain axis, which means that the state of the gut can affect the brain and vice versa. Research has shown that a healthy gut microbiome can improve mood, reduce anxiety and depression, and even improve sleep.

  4. Skin health: The gut microbiome can also impact skin health, with a healthy gut potentially leading to clearer, healthier skin. Face Mapping can help determine which part of the body is needing attention.

So, how can we maintain a healthy gut? Here are a few tips:

    • Eat a varied and balanced diet: This includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, as well as fermented foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, and kimchi, which are rich in probiotics.

    • Stay hydrated: Drinking enough water is important for digestion and overall health.

    • Exercise regularly: Physical activity can help to improve gut health by promoting regular bowel movements and reducing stress. Recent science is also showing that the diversity of specific gut bacteria varies between those who are physically active and those who live a sedentary life. 

    • Manage stress: Chronic stress can disrupt the balance of the microbiome, so it's important to find ways to manage stress, such as through exercise, meditation, or therapy. 

    • Supplement your gut with pre and probiotics: Prebiotics feed the gut bacteria while probiotics help to recolonize it. Our Gut Microbiome formula is a great source of both!

If you're looking for more information on gut health, we recommend reviewing these articles:

Microalgae: A Superfood

Microalgae: A Superfood

Microalgae are tiny aquatic organisms that have gained popularity as a natural detoxification aid. These microscopic plants are packed with nutrients and have been shown to have a range of health benefits, including helping to cleanse the body of toxins.

One of the main ways that microalgae detox the body is through their high chlorophyll content. Chlorophyll is a pigment found in plants that gives them their green color and is essential for photosynthesis. It has been shown to have detoxifying properties and can help to cleanse the body of heavy metals and other toxins.

Microalgae also contain high levels of antioxidants, which help to protect the body from the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to the development of chronic diseases. Antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals, which can help to prevent damage to the body and support overall health.

In addition to their detoxifying and antioxidant properties, microalgae are also a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. They are particularly high in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as a range of B vitamins. They are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, and iron, which are all essential for maintaining good health.

There are many different types of microalgae that you may have heard of or are already using, including spirulina, chlorella, and blue-green algae.

Spirulina and chlorella are both types of microalgae that are commonly used as dietary supplements. While they are similar in some ways, there are also some important differences between the two.

Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that is found in warm, alkaline water. It has a spiral shape, hence its name. It is a rich source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, and is often used as a dietary supplement to boost the immune system and improve overall health.

Chlorella, on the other hand, is a type of green algae that is found in fresh water. It has a round shape and a tough outer cell wall, which makes it difficult for the body to digest. Unlike spirulina, chlorella is not a good source of protein, but it is rich in vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B12, iron, and magnesium.

One of the main differences between spirulina and chlorella is their nutrient content. While spirulina is a rich source of protein, chlorella is not. Additionally, chlorella is a better source of vitamins and minerals than spirulina, especially B12, iron, and magnesium.

Another key difference between the two is their taste and smell. Spirulina has a slightly sweet and nutty taste, while chlorella has a strong, earthy taste that some people find unpleasant. Additionally, spirulina has a pleasant, slightly seaweed-like smell, while chlorella has a strong, pungent odor.

For our formulas, we've stepped out of the ordinary and chosen three specific marine Microalgae:

  • Dunaliella Salina
  • Tetraselmis Chuii
  • Nanocloropsis Oceanica

Dunaliella salina is known for its ability to produce large amounts of beta-carotene, a pigment that gives it its distinctive red color. This pigment is a powerful antioxidant and is used in the production of dietary supplements, cosmetics, and other products.

Dunaliella salina is also an important source of vitamins and other nutrients, including vitamins A, B, C, and E, as well as several minerals and trace elements. 

Tetraselmis chuii is known for its high antioxidant and Omega-3 content.

One of the primary reasons that Nannochloropsis oceanica is gaining attention as a potential superfood is its high nutritional value. This algae is a rich source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, making it a potential alternative to traditional protein sources like meat and soy.

In addition, Nannochloropsis oceanica is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining a healthy heart and brain.

Some studies have suggested that both Tetraselmis chuii and Nannochloropsis oceanica may have anti-inflammatory properties, making it potentially useful in the treatment of conditions like arthritis and asthma.

Overall, microalgae are a natural and effective way to support the body's detoxification processes and promote overall health. By adding in a daily dose to your healthy lifestyle, they may help to support the body's natural defense mechanisms and protect against the damaging effects of toxins.

Beauty is More than Skin Deep

Whilst we all accept that Beauty, from a visual point of view at least, is in the eye of the beholder, most of us would like to make the best of what we have. It just makes us feel better in ourselves and that bit more confident as we step out into that ‘brave new day’.

As such Skincare has become a multi-billion $ industry with much science and research behind it, that over the years have produced some very worthwhile and effective products. These products span a wide range of prices and include many well-known ingredients including, Humectants, Retinol, Hyaluronic acid, Collagen, Peptides, Oils and many more.  

These ingredients, in whatever combination, can improve and enhance our skin and, to a certain extent, the more you pay will usually mean the better you get, as higher quality ingredients and blends come at a price.

However, once you have made your choice, it is a fact that skincare products rarely penetrate deep into the skin, mostly due to their molecular structure. It usually requires specific chemical agents to make creams and elixirs to go deeper into our skin and these are generally found in the higher priced Ranges.

Whatever your personal choice of Brand or ingredient and whatever you spend on skincare, it surely makes sense to protect and enhance our skin from the inside as well. By having a diet rich in the ingredients that we look for in our skincare products, we can achieve the best results.

That was the reason we developed our Inner Beauty supplement to bring those ingredients to you, in an effective formulation that includes ‘Hyaluronic Acid’, Retinol and Collagen Boosting properties together with our Seagreen-H2 Marine Microalgae Blend to give your skin the best possible start to the day.

Your Gut - Or Your Life

Few people understand just how important your Gut Microbiome is to your life, not just the effectiveness of virtually every function of your body, but as recent studies suggest, how long you live.

There are trillions of microbes that exist in the human body. These are mainly to be found in your intestines. They are largely bacteria, viruses, and fungi, which are collectively referred to as the Gut Microbiome, of which bacteria are by far the most studied.

Estimates suggest you have more Bacterial cells than Human cells in your body 40trn v 30trn.  There are up to 1,000 species of Bacteria involved in the Human Gut Microbiome, each playing a different role.

Weighing up to 2kg, similar in weight to the brain, they are effectively an extra organ in your body which is crucial for your health. They are very much involved in controlling your Digestion, Immune system, and your Brain Health, such that without them it would be difficult to survive.

The Gut Microbiome affects the body from birth throughout your life controlling, as mentioned before, your digestion, immunity, the central nervous system, and other bodily processes. It plays a role in intestinal diseases like IBS whose effects are caused by Gut Dysbiosis. A healthy Microbiome prevents disease-causing bacteria from sticking to the intestinal walls and helps avoid such illnesses developing.

The Microbiome is even related to Heart Health, promoting ‘good’ HDL cholesterol, but an unhealthy gut can lead to artery blocking, by producing a chemical known as TMOA leading to heart attacks or strokes particularly in diets high in red meat and animal products.

The Gut Microbiome is also linked to the control of blood sugar levels, and it has been discovered that there is a rise in unhealthy bacterial species, just before the onset of type 1 Diabetes.

When it comes to our Brain, certain bacteria help produce chemicals called neurotransmitters such as serotonin that is mostly made in the Gut, which is connected to the Brain through millions of nerves. Studies have also shown that people with psychological disorders have different strains of bacteria in their guts compared to healthy people.

Its’ no wonder that one of our first products was our Gut Microbiome Formula to help strengthen and support your whole body.

Experts have said that ‘a varied diet, with fruit, vegetables, fermented foods, and whole grains’, and which also contains both Prebiotics and Probiotics is best for the Gut. They also suggest a plant-based diet is healthier and that a Probiotic Supplement is recommended, as well as avoiding Antibiotics where possible.

9 Benefits Of Marine Microlagae


Healthy You

  • As Marine Microalgae are ‘plants’, they are Vegan, and as they are also the basis of all life on the planet - our body knows what they are, making them highly absorbable.
  • They contain every Vitamin and every Mineral including Trace minerals and as such, provide an ideal supplement to our diet.
  • They are also the original source of Omega 3 fatty acids. We are told to eat oily fish to get these, but fish don’t make Omega 3’s they get them from their food chain which starts with Marine Microalgae.
  • They can, and will increasingly be, added to other foods such as Pasta, Bread, Sauces and Spreads and will be able to substantially increase the nutritional value of such foods.
  • Being more than 50% Protein, they also contain all the amino acids that aid and promote the formation of Collagen in our bodies for both health and beauty.

Healthy Planet

  • The Marine Microalgae we use are 100% sustainable, are not harvested from the Oceans, and are grown in carefully controlled environments, providing an amazing foodstuff whilst doing no harm to the planet.
  • Being unchanged for 3.4bn years they are the base of the food chain that supports all life on the planet, every plant and animal owes their existence to these microscopic organisms. About the size of a blood cell, just one capsule of our ‘Seagreen Pure’ contains approx. 2 billion of them.
  • They capture CO2 as part of photosynthesis and are an important part of the climate balance and therefore have the potential to help control climate change.
  • Scientists believe the ‘best is yet to come’, there are believed to be between 800,000 and 1m species in the oceans. As of now, we have only named some 30,000 species and are only farming a fraction of those. Many potential medical and ecological applications are being studied with some extremely positive results.

Do We Need Supplements? (Or is a clean diet enough?)

Do We Need Supplements? (Or is a clean diet enough?)

As health-conscious individuals, we strive to achieve optimal health for ourselves and our loved ones. We often wonder if it is possible to attain perfect health without the use of supplements.

Our ancestors lived without supplements for thousands of years, consuming fewer foods and smaller portions. Unfortunately for us, modern farming practices and overfishing have drastically reduced the nutritional value of our 'nutritional' foods.

Even a well-balanced diet with a colorful variety of fruits and vegetables may not provide all the nutrients we need to thrive. This is where supplements come in. 

Supplements come in by helping to bridge the gap between the nutrients we get from our diet and what our bodies need to function at their best.

To understand which nutrients we may be lacking, we need to consider our biological requirements based on factors such as genetics, environment, and daily food intake. Even cooking methods can impact the nutritional value of our food.

High heat can render essentials like enzymes and vitamin C useless. 

And if you consume a lot of convenience foods, you're more susceptible to nutrient deficiencies as highly processed foods lose many essential nutrients in the processing. 

But be wary of packaged convenience foods that claim to be healthy. Many of these foods contain synthetic vitamins that can do more harm than good. Avoid 'fortified' foods or foods that focus specifically on calories as their 'health' claim. These synthetic nutrients can often rob your body of essential nutrients.

Whole foods are better options for nutrient sources. Foods with ingredients you can pronounce are also better options.

When choosing a supplement to support your diet, it's crucial to read labels and understand the benefits of the supplements you choose, along with their daily recommended intake, source, and absorption rate. Look for those with ingredients you can pronounce, discuss with your doctor if the formula will conflict with any medications, and aim for something that isn't just a fad.

This is key.

What works for one person may not work for you.

Search for the gaps in your diet that need your attention.

Do you work all day indoors or live in a cloudy climate? You might do well to supplement with a good source of Vitamin D3. 

Do you struggle with gut imbalances? You may do well with a pre/probiotic formula that both feeds and repopulates your gut bacteria. 

And learn to listen to your body when it speaks up. 

Feeling crunchy and stiff? 

You may just be dehydrated or in need of some yoga. 

Remember, supplements are meant to supplement, not replace a healthy diet and lifestyle. As our resident Holistic Health Coach, Alida, would say "Start by adjusting your diet first. Then you'll know what you're lacking in."
