Used as a herb for centuries, Kelp can help hormone imbalance, lower high blood-cholesterol levels, prevent arthritis, and reduce bloating and water retention. It is an excellent source of iodine, a mineral that is vital for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the body’s metabolism and therefore its growth and development.
Kelp is rich in B complex vitamins, vitamins D, E and K, magnesium, calcium, amino acids, biominerals and carotenoids. We use milled kelp as a replacement for salt and in soups, fish dishes and salads and it can also added to flour.
Kelp is the only vegetable we know of that is able to bind and remove radioactive substances from your body, an important property because of the large areas contaminated after the nuclear testing of the past. Its water retention properties can also help in weight loss.
The Kelp meal we supply is highly concentrated, 20 kilograms of fresh kelp will produce 1 kilogram of dried product. This increases its shelf life and also helps to keep down the cost of postage. Because it contains a lot of iodine you should not use it excessively as iodine can work as a toxin. Recommended use is 150-300 micro grams but if you are in any doubt then please contact your doctor.
Please note: Under no circumstances should anyone consume more than 2 grams of dried kelp per day.
We carefully inspect all the kelp we harvest and then dry it without washing to keep all the important nutrients. Once dried a whitish stain consisting of dried sugar and salt is visible on the surface.
Kelp meal is also an important nutrient added to horse food to prevent illness, improve the digestion and compensates for any food insufficiencies.
