The Benefits of Kelp

Kelp is a large, leafy seaweed belonging to the brown algae family that grows in "forests" in the colder waters of the world's oceans. Kelp has been used for centuries as an important nutritious staple ingredient in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean cuisines. It is also an excellent source of iodine, which has been shown to be essential for healthy thyroid function. As such, NOW® Kelp delivers the natural nutrient profile found in genuine whole foods.

Iodine is an essential trace element that is vital for maintaining proper thyroid function.* The thyroid gland needs iodine to produce thyroxine (T4), a hormone that helps regulate metabolism.* An iodine deficiency can cause goiter, a condition characterized by an enlarged thyroid gland.* goitrogens are substances that may interfere with iodine uptake by the thyroid gland.* As such, it is important to make sure you are getting enough iodine in your diet if you have or are at risk for goiter.*

Kelp contains other important nutrients such as vitamins A and C, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.* These vitamins and minerals play important roles in supporting healthy bones, skin, teeth, and hair.* In addition, kelp contains alginates, which are compounds that have been shown to bind with heavy metals and remove them from the body.*

NOW® Kelp is an easy way to get the benefits of this superfood into your diet. Simply take 2 capsules daily with a meal or glass of water. This product is non-GMO and vegetarian. It does not contain gluten, soy, wheat, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish or shellfish. Store in a cool, dry place after opening.
