Kelp is a large, leafy brown algae that belongs to the seaweed family and grows in the colder waters of the world's oceans.  It is a good source of marine minerals, including potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron.  It is also an excellent source of iodine, which has been shown to support healthy thyroid function. 

Your thyroid gland is responsible for producing the hormones that support normal cellular metabolism.  As with most green foods, kelp also contains vitamins and cell salts essential for good nutrition. Kelp is a sea vegetable that has been consumed by Eastern countries for years, but is only now beginning to make its way onto the North American plate, and research studies are proving just how valuable kelp is to our health. For example, there is now conclusive evidence that Japanese women, whose diets are rich in kelp, have lower rates of ovarian, endometrial and breast cancer.
 
  • Excellent source of vitamins and minerals: Kelp has been shown to contain 46 minerals, 16 amino acids, the building blocks of protein, and 11 different vitamins. Prominent among the minerals are iodine, salt, iron, potassium, phosphorus and calcium. The lead vitamins in kelp are vitamin A and niacin.

  • Helps in Thyroid Gland Regulation: Due to Kelps high levels of natural iodine, it is essential in regulating our thyroid hormones and therefore our metabolism and energy levels.

  • Assists in Weight Management and weight loss: Due to kelp's iodine content and its role in thyroid function, one of kelps benefits is improving metabolism and energy. An iodine deficiency can slow your metabolic function by as much at 50 percent, so including kelp can naturally and significantly improve weight loss and other associated health problems.

  •  Improves body pH: Kelp is an alkaline food and therefore an essential part of maintaining acid base balance in the body and an effective component in a healthy acid-alkaline diet. Protects against Radiation Poisoning: Once again, due to kelp's high natural iodine levels, it prevents the thyroid from up-taking harmful levels of radioactive iodine present after a nuclear disaster. This has been particularly important since the recent nuclear fallout in Japan in 2011.

  •  Cancer prevention: particularly in estrogen sensitive cancers such as breast, endometrial and ovarian cancers.
