We offer Kelp powder, Ascophyllum nodosum, by Seagreens as a bulk purchase for our customers.
Kelp powder is a very easy way to get valuable minerals, trace elements and other essential nutrients from marine plants.
You can use our kelp powder as a replacement for unhealthy table salt. Add this powdered marine food to absolutely any type of other food you fancy, to enhance its flavour. It is very tasty indeed.
Ascophyllum nodosum is a species of brown seaweeds. It is also known as Norwegian kelp, egg wrack, or rockweed.
This particular Ascophyllum species by Seagreens that we sell here, grows in the wild in the pristine environment of the Outer Hebrides islands in the north of Scotland.
It is a top-quality product that has been harvested from living plants, cerified organic and produced to human-food-quality standards.
Ascophyllum is an excellent kelp supplement that can be useful in a variety of ways, some of which we discuss below.
Since kelp contains high amounts of iodine, it can be used as a dietary iodine supplement for hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid.
Tiredness and fatigue are major symptoms of an underactive thyroid.
Iodine - one of kelp's most powerful components - is vital for proper functioning of the thyroid gland.
The thyroid gland affects metabolism - the rate at which our bodies convert food into energy. Slow metabolic rates caused by thyroid underactivity inevitably result in lack of energy and tiredness.
Thyroid underactivity has been strongly linked to insufficient amounts of iodine in the body. (Ref. 1)
Taking kelp - and therefore iodine in its natural state - is one of the best ways to improve one's metabolic rates and tackle chronic fatigue.
In this sense, and as a general suggestion, kelp powder may also be a valuable food for those on a weight-loss diet since improved metabolism can help remove excessive fat in the body.
Kelp also contains a unique carotenoid called fucoxanthin. In some studies, fucoxanthin has been shown to fight excessive fat via oxidation of fatty acids and heat production in white adipose tissue. (Ref. 2)
Kelp has been used for centuries as a staple food for those living alongside coastal areas around the planet. Now this nutritionally rich plant is widely available to virtually everyone willing to improve their health.

Kelp powder can be used as a natural partial replacement for table salt. Add it to any food you like. Or take it straight from a spoon if you like its taste.
Also, you can make your own capsules using a capsule machine and empty capsules.
Try to define your kelp intake according to your health needs.
As a guide, we suggest taking 1 or 2 capsules a day, or 1/4 level teaspoonful 1 to 3 times a day. Taking regular breaks with any superfoods, including kelp, is also advisable.
Always consult your nutritional therapist when using kelp for a medical condition.
