Kelp, sometimes also known as Sea Kelp, refers to a group of
brown algae or seaweed. It is said that there are more than 30 related
species, although it will be true that some have yet to be discovered.
Kelp tablets are rich in iodine which helps maintain thyroid function and normal production of thyroid hormones.

Kelp grows at the bottom of relatively shallow parts of oceans in
‘kelp forests’ and thrives best in nutrient rich sea at temperatures
around 10oC. Although kelp may be found in the seas of many
parts of the temperate world, they appear to grow particularly well in
the Pacific Ocean.
Sea kelp has been used in healthcare for many centuries. It was eaten
firstly as a food and many cultures (such as the Japanese) still value
seaweed as part of their daily diet. Kelp contains a variety of
nutrients, especially iodine, and it is for this reason that people use
it to help maintain the normal functioning of the thyroid gland.
from its use in natural healthcare, Kelp has been used in a number of
industrial processes. Kelp ash has been used in the manufacture of soap
and glass; a substance known as alginate derived from kelp seaweed is
used to thicken foods such as ice-cream, jelly, salad cream and
toothpaste. This alginate has also been found to have the ability to
bind to, and prevent fat-absorption.
Powdered kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera). Also contains microcrystalline
