Supports Sustainable Agriculture
- In Baja California, we recycle saline lands by the coast to grow Salicornia.
- These high salinity lands are infertile for most plants, but Salicornia thrives on them.
- We irrigate our Salicornia with filtered sea water. This saves millions of liters of fresh water a year compared to conventional crops.
Protects Your Heart Health
- Salicornia has shown protective effects against high blood pressure in scientific studies (Food and Function Journal 2015).
- It's also demonstrated antioxidant and antidiabetic properties (Journal of Medicinal Food 2009).

Why is high blood pressure dangerous?
Hypertension (High blood pressure) makes the heart work too hard, and the high force of the blood flow can harm arteries and organs (such as the heart, kidneys, brain, and eyes).
High blood pressure can raise the risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney disease, and blindness. In addition, blood pressure generally rises as you get older, so limiting your sodium intake becomes even more important each year. (FDA.gov 2021)
