All About Sea Moss

At 808 Co. we are all about Wellness for your Mind, Body and Spirit. 

We always use a holistic perspective when we speak about wellness, and for your body it is no different. A healthy body consists of taking care of both the inside and out. This includes moving your body, whether that be with yoga or other forms of physical activity, as well as what you consume. 

This is where Sea Moss comes in. Quite frankly, many of us do not consume enough nutritional foods on a daily basis. It is for this reason that we reached out to The Sea Moss Guy to learn more about the amazing benefits of incorporating the super food Sea Moss into our diets. 

The Sea Moss Guy is a small, black-owned business, co-founded by Dezie and Clinton, a power couple living in the GTA.
