Analysis.

{tab Source}

Used throughout history, seaweed has been used as a natural fertilizer for growing crops. Ascophyllum nodosum is one of the most popular, abundant and most studied seaweeds in the world because it has been found to be highly beneficial in agriculture. This seaweed grows in the cold waters of the Northern Atlantic and is sustainably harvested offshore, removing the possibility of contaminants that are found in seaweed that has washed up on shore. This cold water helps to lock in the nutrients that are so beneficial to both plants and animals.
