Naturally boost your metabolism, aid weight loss and feel more energised with a regular dose of Kelp. A seaweed most commonly enjoyed in delicacies like sushi can now be found harnessed in a convenient supplement capsule from Swanson. Kelp is a rich source of nutrients and minerals particularly Iodine, an vital mineral for maintaining a healthy thyroid gland.
Kelp is most commonly known and recognised as a seaweed found growing plentiful in the ocean. It is a brown algae or Phaeophyceae which thrives on sunlight and absorbs nutrients and minerals present in the water around it. With a high growth rate, Kelp can grow as fast as 20 inches a day making its harvest sustainable as it can grow fully back with weeks.
Consumed by Eastern countries for years in ever popular sushi dishes, Seaweed is packed full of vitamins and minerals that it is now becoming one of the new superfoods. Kelp contains over 40 minerals including salt, iron, potassium, phosphorus and calcium, 16 amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and 11 different vitamins. What makes Kelp most interesting is its extraordinary source of iodine, a mineral missing in almost most other food.
Iodine is fundamental for health and often ignored when the likes of Vitamin C, Iron and Calcium are often promoted as the must have nutrient in the diet. Iodine helps to maintain a healthy and efficient working thyroid, the gland responsible for regulating metabolism, body temperature and producing hormones. So by regulating metabolism, Kelp could assist with healthy weight loss plus many other health benefits.
Eating Kelp is not for everyone, it is an acquired taste so Swanson, a renowned US supplier of quality nutritional supplements to support health and wellbeing have harnessed the power of natural Kelp into a convenient daily capsule. You can rely on Swanson Health Products to give you regulated supplements of with the highest standards of quality, purity and potency.
