Kelp naturally contains trace minerals, including iodine. It may be used as a glandular health supplement and to support metabolism and energy levels.
From Nature’s Sunshine – High-mineral seaweed that regulates metabolism. Iodine is important for thyroid disorders (both overactive and under-active) and obesity.
- Supports the glandular system.
- Promotes metabolism.
How It Works:
Kelp is an algae which contains nutrients that may promote glandular functions and metabolism.
Kelp leaf and stem.

High-mineral seaweed that regulates metabolism. "Gift from the sea"
Kelp is a nutritive Pacific seaweed that is very high in minerals (over
30) including iodine.
The minerals provided nutrients required for body-regulating enzymes.
Iodine is important for thyroid disorders (both overactive and underactive)
and obesity. Iodine feeds the thyroid which controls metabolism. Thus kelp
is used for weight loss and as a supplement for pregnancy.
Kelp is believed to strengthen the heart and brain.
Kelp contain a viscous fiber called algin.
Algin absorbs most nutrients as well as toxins from the digestive tract.
This reduces both caloric intake and toxins entering the circulatory system.
Alginic acid binds and removes radioactive strontium 90 from the body.
Note: Atlantic kelp (Ascophyllum nodosum) is also sold as "Kelp".
The properties of both kelps seem to be similar.
