Moreover, several studies have provided insight into biological activities and health promoting effects of sea lettuces. Despite having so much health beneficial effects, sea lettuces are still identified as an underexploited plant resources for food purposes. Hence, sea lettuces have a great potential for further development as products in foods and pharmaceutical areas. Further, potential applications of polysaccharides, protein and amino acid, lipid and fatty acid, mineral and vitamin contents may increase the sea lettuces value.
