OVERVIEW:

Kelp, also known as knotted wrack and rockweed, is a type of large brown algae with a majestic form, that grows in shallow, nutrient-rich saltwater. This botanical beauty has a strong fishy flavor to some people but is only mildly salty to others and it has a high nutritional yield. Care and importance should be taken when consuming kelp and one should know its origin because many of the world's oceans are suffering from pollution.

 

Powdered kelp can be easily included in practically every dish whether it is entrees, soups, salads, 'Green Smoothies', teas, or iced drinks. This superfood is an abundant source of iodine, calcium, amino acids and various trace minerals. It’s an excellent source of vitamins as well, vitamins A, B-12, B-6, and C. The benefits of these vitamins and nutrients are substantial. This sea vegetable with its nutrient properties supports weight loss, thyroid health, and even keeps your bones strong.
