Just wondering, if there are any known issues with eating seaweed (dulse, kelp, etc.) while taking HCTZ diuretics? I have seen many praises for sea vegetables in the diet for helping maintain blood pressure, but I have not been able to find any interaction information.
Very nice. I just ordered some dulce to put in soups and stews and salads from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables (www.seaveg.com). You should check them out if you are interested. They have a lot of cool stuff.
Oh, is seaweed low in sodium (specifically NaCl/table salt)? Obviously, that would be a prerequisite for my DASH diet.
I checked out the website you posted and for Dulse they say:
* Only 122mg of sodium/serving, yet "salty" tasting
Given that it's best to limit total daily sodium intake to under 2400mg (what does Dash say? It's stricter than that isn't it?), that's not too bad. Of course, it all depends on what they characterize as a "serving"!!
