What is kelp?
Kelp is a long-stemmed seaweed rich in valuable minerals including magnesium and iodine. Just one kelp tablet provides 150μg (100% NRV) of Iodine, which is the recommended daily amount for a healthy adult. The body needs very little iodine but it is an important contributor to our health. Kelp is one of the most reliable natural sources of iodine because many vegetables which contain iodine also interfere with the body's ability to absorb it.
Why take a kelp supplement?
Iodine is vital for healthy function of the thyroid gland and production of thyroid hormones. A well functioning thyroid effectively regulates the body's metabolism which helps our energy levels. Due to its effect on the metabolism Kelp/Iodine supplements are a favoured choice of slimmers, and those watching their weight.
