Kelp, commonly referred to as seaweed, grows along the coastlines. It is solely dependant upon receiving its nutrients from the ocean and can grow up to two feet in one day. Kelp is an abundant source of natural vitamins, minerals and some amino acids.
Kelp is a nutritional source that is used to promote healthy glandular functions, focusing especially on the thyroid. By regulating the thyroid, kelp helps stimulate and balance the metabolism. The large amounts of iodine found in kelp are important in the treatment of an under-active thyroid. Consequently, kelp may contribute to weight loss if the weight gain is directly related to thyroid disorders.
Kelp has also been known to treat inflamed joints and tissues caused by arthritis and rheumatism. Furthermore, kelp enhances the immune system and eliminates the negative effects that stress may have on the body.
(Due to its high iodine content, Kelp should be used sparingly if a thyroid condition exists and consult your health care professional.)
