From her make-up tips to her home interiors, Kim Kardashian isn’t shy about giving fans a sneak peek of what goes on behind closed doors when the KUWTK cameras aren’t rolling.
And in a recent “ask me anything” on Twitter, the 39-year-old reality star-turned-business mogul shared that as part of her new plant-based diet, she’s started drinking sea moss smoothies.
Yep, you read that correctly. Not to be confused with seaweed, sea moss is also known as Irish moss (full disclosure: I’m Irish and had never heard of it before now) or carrageen moss, and can be found in parts off the Atlantic coast.
It acts as a thickening agent so is perfect for adding to milks or smoothies, and as it contains high levels of iodine, it’s great for thyroid health. It’s also packed full of potassium and B vitamins, and has been proven to have a good effect on the gut and digestive tract.
So while it sounds icky on the face of it, it also sounds like Kim is on to something, so no prizes for guessing we’re likely to see more sea moss products in health food shops in the near future.
