In the Caribbean, seamoss has been an essential part of the local diet for over a century. It’s harvested from the sea and transformed into a gel that can be used in a variety of mouthwatering dishes like smoothies, soups, oatmeal, and even drinks. Ocean Botanicals’ founder and CEO Giovani's saw his dad, however, tooking it to the next level. He made incredible mango smoothies infused with seamoss (  


Now, here's where the story gets exciting. Giovani grew up seeing the tremendous benefits of sea moss in Jamaica. But when he joined the US Marine Corps and later the US Army, seamoss wasn't a part of his daily routine anymore. And guess what? He started feeling like his energy levels were dropping, and the standard American diet, he was eating, just wasn't cutting it for the intense physical demands of military life. 


That's when Giovani decided to embark on a quest to find natural foods that could boost his energy and improve his overall health. And you know what he discovered? Seamoss was the answer!  


Turns out, this stuff is an absolute superhero of the food world. Not only does it work wonders for your digestive health by strengthening the good bacteria in your stomach, but it's also packed with iron, minerals, antioxidants, and other fantastic nutrients that supercharge your immune system. Seamoss also contains some impressive natural compounds like citrulline-arginine, which can do wonders for your hair and skin. And if you're looking for bone support and a serious energy boost, sea moss has got your back there too! It's like a one-stop shop for all things health and vitality.  


Now, imagine Giovani incorporating seamoss back into his diet. Can you guess what happened? He started experiencing all these incredible benefits firsthand. He felt amazing, performed at his peak, and rarely ever got sick. Plus, his recovery time after intense workouts became lightning-fast. Talk about a game-changer! 


With all these positive changes in his life, Giovani couldn't keep this seamoss secret to himself. Besides, his buddies in the military noticed the difference and wanted in! Soon, they saw the difference in their own performance, endurance, and workout recovery. Gio realized that not only did his military buddies need seamoss, but the world needed to know about the incredible power of this ultimate superhero of superfoods. So, in July 2020, Seamoss The Boss was born, which became Ocean Botanicals in May 2023.


Giovani understands the importance of embracing the natural remedies that have been passed down through generations. But now his research and discovery of the science is showing you the WHY! Seamoss is one of those incredible gifts from our ancestors, and it's time we reclaim it!
