I have been taking a lot of kelp, and decided to make my own capsules as it is cheaper to buy that way. I first ordered this product, Starwest Botanicals ground kelp, and although I continued to take it, I was not happy with the quality at all. It was grayish in color and did not smell or taste like seaweed at all. When I started to run low, I ordered "Raw Organic Fine Ground Kelp Powder from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables" (It comes in a bag that says Natural Zing on it, if you look closely, you can see it in the picture) hoping it would be better. It is beautiful! Smells freshly like seaweed, is green, tastes wonderful... I couldn't be happier with it. It was such a stark difference in quality that I no longer wanted to finish the other bag of Starwest Botanicals kelp. I would not recommend this to anyone who is taking or using ground kelp, it is well worth whatever extra $ it may cost to buy the other brand.

Sea kelp, which is also referred to as bladder wrack and kelp, is a brown seaweed that grows along the ocean shores and can be eaten cooked or raw. Kelp is nutritionally dense and has a variety of health-promoting properties. However, adverse reactions have been reported from the consumption of kelp, and you should talk to your health-care practitioner before attempting to self-medicate with it.

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.

Put a teaspoon in a shake with strawberries and chocolate protein after mixing the kelp with concentrated lemon juice to neutralize the fishy taste. Had immediate energy. Fantastic.

Star West Botanicals Kelp Powder is the same as Sea Magic Plant Growth Stimulant only MUCH less expensive. Sea Magic comes in small, packets (like the kind veggie seeds come in) and it's $7-$10 for two; Star West comes in a 1 pound bag for about $6. A bag lasts about 4 months and feeds hundreds of seedlings and plants.

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.

Just a heads-up: Amazon also has the 5 lb size of this product. If you can use that much, you're getting 5 lbs for around the price of 3 lbs (3 of these) bought individually.

This product got to me quickly and was packed very well. This is the 2nd time I have ordered it.
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.

Based on the recomendations of CarnivoreCarryout we are switching an English Bulldog over from dry kibble to raw food. This is a supplement she suggested, and I know the benefit for all of us that kelp offers.

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.
