Healthy for Us, Healthy for the Planet
Kelp is a highly nutritious food source. Our kelp is gluten free and a good source of calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which are important in muscle and bone activity. It provides zinc and selenium, and many other minerals and amino acids. It is low in calories, carbohydrates and fat. The numerous other minerals and vitamins in kelp help make it one of the healthiest foods available.
Iodine is more abundant in kelp than in almost any other plant or animal. Iodine is critical to thyroid function, protects us against radiation, prevents infection, and helps scavenge free radicals. Iodine is critical; "No iodine, no life"
"Seaweed boasts a bounty of nutrients that can help people get healthy and stay healthy. Whether solo, in salads, soups, or smoothies, sea vegetables bring nutritious to delicious."
