Kelp is one of those super sea vegetables. It's full of minerals, especially iodine which makes it very helpful for thyroid issues. Studies in Japan show that Kelp contains Algin which has been shown to prevent cancer. It is helpful for soothing irritated throats and mucous membranes and may help reduce risk from environmental pollution.

Kelp is a wonderful nutritive for convalescing patients and pregnant women. It can help grow healthy hair, skin, and nails, help balance the effects of stress, and can promote overall health and well-being. Just another great reason to live by the sea!

Disclaimer II
It’s ridiculous that anyone writing about herbal and traditional remedies should have to put a disclaimer at the end of anything. 
Use your brain and think for yourself! Just as you shouldn't take a pharmaceutical at face value, 
do your herbal research and learn about the amazing plants around us.


  1. Wonderful for you, but not very tasty.

  2. I've heard kelp has great benefits. I'll have to look for it in capsule form.

  3. Wasn't there a kelp that was supposed to taste like bacon? No, wait, that was something else...
