An abundant source of iodine, calcium, amino acids and various trace minerals, kelp powder is mixed into foods or encapsulated as a dietary supplement.

what else you should know


Kelp is a type of brown seaweed harvested from the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Although the plant lacks a root system, it manages to set perch on the rocky terrain of the ocean floor with a foot-like apparatus appropriate called a holdfast. For this reason, kelp is also commonly known as rockweed.

Like other seaweeds, kelp is sometimes referred to as a “super food” (or superfood) because it is highly nutritious. In fact, it’s an excellent source of amino acids as well as minerals, including calcium and iodine.
