Kelp, also known as brown algae, is a sensational herb that comes from the sea. Plants from the sea tend to keep their high nutritional value where they are immune to the consequences of soil erosion. One of the most abundant elements in kelp is iodine - this is a vital trace mineral for normal thyroid function and an essential component of the thyroid hormones which are directly responsible for controlling the body’s base metabolic rate. It is crucial to brain development in utero and in children, an iodine deficiency can lead to intellectual impairment in adults. Selenium is another trace mineral present in high amounts in kelp – this is also an essential component of the thyroid glands functions. Selenium is also important in male fertility, where along with zinc, it assists in spermatogenesis – the production or development of mature spermatozoa.
Our Kelp Powder is rich in essential minerals such as; calcium and magnesium which promote healthy bones and teeth, iron which is involved in the production of healthy red blood cells and manganese - an active component in the metabolism of cholesterol and carbohydrates.
Kelp power can be used as a seasoning for many dishes or added to soups and stews to give them a powerful nutritional boost.
Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.
Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal.
Think about what you can replace in your daily diet with Superfoods. For full instructions go to our How to use Superfoods page.

Indigo Herbs Kelp Powder comes from France where great swathes of the seaweed are in abundance all along the coast. Our seaweed is pulled out of the ocean and carefully checked by experts to make sure that only the variety of Ascophyllum nodosum is used. After the Kelp has been dried it undergoes a milling process that reduces it to a thick heavy powder. This powder is then tested and screened for toxins, pollutants and heavy metals to ensure that it is completely safe to consume.
None Known. Caution should be taken when taking kelp as a supplement. Excess iodine from kelp can cause adverse health effects. Consult your doctor if using kelp as a supplement and you may have thyroid imbalance.

I'm not an expert on powdered supplements, but this is very fine, and beautifully packaged in a quality, resealable pack. From using a bit in a soup, a little goes quite a long way taste-wise, but that's the nature of kelp. I'd buy it again.
