Rootless Harmony: The Seaweed Story of Hormone Health & Preserving Our Planet

Apple Podcast | Spotify | Audible

In the latest episode of The Pause Pod, I explore the wonders of seaweed as a source of hormonal health and well-being with Sachi Singh – founder and CEO of Rootless and seaweed’s number one fan – and Chief of Staff, Dr. Gabby Pavelko.

They discuss the diverse types of seaweed and their nutrient-rich profiles, emphasizing its role in hormonal health (hello menopause) and its high concentration of essential minerals and vitamins.

The conversation also covers the sustainable and regenerative aspects of seaweed farming, highlighting its minimal environmental impact. They also touch upon the inclusivity of seaweed, and an option suitable for various dietary needs including vegans.

Dare to go where no one’s gone before; Get Rootless – where self-care meets planetary care.

For more, take a pause. Get cozy, and join us in the Pod. Let’s Perimenopause and Prosper!
