Kelp - An Overlooked Superfood?

Kelp is a type of algae that has been used as a food source in East Asia for centuries. It is a rich source of iodine, which is essential for healthy thyroid function. Despite its many health benefits, kelp remains largely unknown in the West. Perhaps it's time to give this humble seaweed the attention it deserves!

What is 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. It has been used for centuries as an important staple ingredient in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean cuisines. Kelp is an excellent source of iodine, which has been shown to be essential for healthy thyroid function.*

Health Benefits of Kelp

In addition to being a good source of iodine, kelp contains other important nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, iron, and Vitamins A, C, and K. These nutrients offer a variety of health benefits including supporting a healthy immune system, promoting cardiovascular health, and helping to maintain healthy bones.*

Kelp also contains alginate, a fiber-like compound that has been shown to promote gut health.* Alginate binds to toxins and heavy metals in the gut and helps to remove them from the body.* This detoxifying effect may be one of the reasons why kelp has been traditionally used as an medicinal food.

How to Add Kelp to Your Diet

If you're looking for ways to add more iodine to your diet, kelp is an excellent choice. Just three grams (about one teaspoon) of dried kelp contains approximately 700% of your daily recommended value of iodine!* Kelp can be added to soups and stews or used as a seasoning for meat and vegetables. It can also be rehydrated and used in salads or as a rice substitute. NOW® Kelp Powder is an easy way to add kelp to your favorite recipes. Simply add it to smoothies or use it as a gluten-free flour alternative in baking recipes.
