Kelp powder offers a convenient way to ensure a regular source of iodine, the trace element needed for healthy thyroid function. For those individuals wishing to avoid the salty, mouth-puckering taste of kelp, ingesting the encapsulated powder will prevent a taste bud revolt.
A host of health benefits are offered by kelp, and it is used to treat a number of nutrition-related health issues. Kelp is rich in around 70 essential minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and vitamin B-9. These minerals help greatly in building cell membranes, helping digestion and improving brain function.
Alternative medicine practitioners recommend kelp to help "cleanse the blood" and increase energy, according to "Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database." Kelp also has been used to help treat obesity, arthritis, rheumatism, arteriosclerosis, digestive disorders, heartburn, constipation, bronchitis, emphysema, urinary and genital disorders and anxiety. People also consume sea kelp to enhance disease resistance and help prevent herpes and other viral infections. However, these uses are based on anecdotal reports and not solid scientific evidence.
Some sea kelp is contaminated with toxic heavy metals. Heavy-metal poisoning has been reported from the ingestion of contaminated sea kelp.Read more ›
I mix the kelp powder into my seed starter growing medium for my veggie garden. Once the seedlings have sprouted, I mix 1TBSP with a gallon of water and it serves as a well-rounded fertilizer for all of my vegetables and strawberry plants and provides them with a well-balanced meal full of micronutrients not found in commercial fertilizers.
I just bought a second bag which should provide nutrition for the rest of the growing season. I really don't know anything about taking kelp powder orally, but I suppose indirectly I will reap all the benefits of it when I'm noshing on a bumper crop of tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, beans, and more...only without the fishy taste.
About the photos: these are lettuce, purple pole beans and tomatoes - a mere 14 days after planting the seeds.
It contains so many trace minerals and I see the difference in my skin and my digestion. It is
something that I try to take every day. It is also organic and is a Canadian product making it
safe for ingestion. Thank you for having this available.
So not only does Maddie get a couple shakes 3-4 times a week, but so do wee. It goes on our salads, or in our smoothies. Good protein.
The unused portion stays in a plastic bag in the freezer until time to reload the shaker bottle.

Airborne. Messy. Out of control. Probably more readily absorbed. Packs tightly into capsules. Doesn't add texture to smoothies/food.Published 11 days ago by Simple Buyer
