Seaweed Agogo Protein Snackers and Crunchies are loved by athletes for their great taste and high protein ingredients, but what if we told you there was much more to Seaweed Agogo than just a great tasting snack.
Our Turmeric Protein Snackers, Seaweed Popcorn and Organic Herb Mixes harness the power of Circumin & Piperin to provide a mutual brain boosting snack that is perfect for those gruelling study sessions.
Turmeric might not be the first flavour that comes to mind when you are thinking of an afternoon snack, however don’t write it off just yet… Our flavour packed snack and herb range not only taste fantastic, but they’re great for your health too.
Our Turmeric range is a fan favourite at Seaweed Agogo, it’s sweet and earthy flavour, coupled with a pinch of Black Pepper creates a moreish snack that will keep you coming back for more.
At Seaweed Agogo we chose Turmeric for its complex flavour but also for its medicinal benefits. According to a recent study, this earthy spice known for giving Curry it’s beautiful golden colour can also help to improve both mood and memory by acting as a natural “Nootropic”.
Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years both as a spice and a medicinal herb, however it has only been in recent years that science has been able to back up the traditional claims that Turmeric contains compounds with medical benefits.
These compounds called Curcuminoids are packed full of goodness. The most important of these compounds is known as Curcumin, which has been found to offer powerful anti-inflammatory and strong antioxidant effects on the body.
On top of these useful effects Curcumin has also been shown to increase levels of Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), this newly discovered protein plays a role in the areas of the brain responsible for eating, drinking and body weight as well as mood and memory helping neurons to divide, multiply and form new connections.
Interestingly many common brain disorders including Alzheimers and Depression have been linked to decreased BDNF levels.
By now we’re sure that you are already sold on the benefits of Turmeric, and for full transparency we’ve only covered those relevant to this article.
If you want to learn more, you can find a full list of Curcumin benefits in this handy Top 10 Evidence Based Health Benefits Of Turmeric article by health specialist website Healthline.
Anyway we digress, how can we improve on the already great medical benefits of Turmeric, well actually… It's pretty simple, Black Pepper, another key ingredient in our Protein Snackers, Seaweed Popcorn and Turmeric Herb Mix.
Circumin’s one drawback is that it is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream, however, when consumed with Piperine its absorption rate increases by a staggering 2000%. Piperine is a naturally occurring Alkaloid that is responsible for the biting taste in Black Pepper.
While we think it is long overdue, the recent call to encourage healthier eating within educational institutions is undeniable. The rise of sugary drinks and salty high calorie snacks has created a need for a healthier snack option for our children and young adults and we believe Seaweed Agogo products offer just that.
Our taste focused health range can improve mood and memory, while providing a boost to protein and vitamin levels.
Another big part of the Seaweed Agogo ethos is our love of the environment, something which we emphasise through our values and use of organic, sustainable ingredients. It is our hope that this love of sustainability will be adopted by those that enjoy our products!
