‘Gr8 Comeback’: The Seamoss Boss

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — When it comes to making beauty personal and changing your health for the better, Malinda Butler believes in the power of sea moss.

“It’s an overall superfood that your body must have,” she said. “When you have sea moss onboard you have a little army inside your body fighting to make everything better. It’s very good for your skin, overall weight management, it gets rid of brain fog [and] it gets rid of leaky gut.”

Before it was a business, it was all about her own health journey and then the more she learned about what sea moss could do, the more she shared it with others.

“I started making sea moss for all of my friends,” she said. Butler said when the COVID-19 pandemic hit people, not only in central Indiana, but more than 40 other states in the country, were interested in giving their immune system some extra security.

“It turned itself into a business during the pandemic,” she said. “I had to basically quit my job in order to keep up with the demand.”

That’s how The Seamoss Boss brand became her primary focus. During the spring of 2021, Butler was able to open the shop in downtown Indianapolis with her son, Jaylon.

“I’m just glad to be a part of it because she really hipped me to what’s going on and how to keep your body right and your mind right by just eating right,” he said.

As a team, they have managed to open up two businesses in one. Starting June 1, next door to The Seamoss Boss will be Burgeoning Health Providers.

“Health physicals, treatment of anxiety, depression [and] high blood pressure,” she listed. “This is where we diagnose and treat it all.”

As she prepares for The Seamoss Boss official grand opening and looks forward to welcoming the community to her one-stop healthy lifestyle shop, she remembers a recent conversation she had with her son.

“I said, ‘Do you know what it’s like to see your own dream?’ And he was like no. I said it’s happening right now.”
