Kelp or brown alga grows in seawater and has excellent healing properties. With Kelp, you can get your health in order if your body is deficient in certain vitamins, minerals and, most importantly, iodine. Kelp is one of the best sources of iodine and therefore a great helper for your thyroid and hormones.

Kelp or brown alga is one of the species of seaweed, which is greenish when fresh and turns dark brown when dried. It also got its name from there.

Kelp is a seaweed that can be used in cooking (many grocery stores sell it), but the easiest and also most effective way to use kelps to consume it as a food supplement or in a capsule form. A kelp food supplement is ground seaweed, the recommended daily amounts of which are indicated on the label of the container. You can get acquainted with kelp sold in La Tene stores HERE. There you will also find more detailed instructions on how to use it.

Kelp is rich in minerals and vitamins that your body needs on a daily basis:

From Kelp, you can get folic acid, magnesium, zinc, iron, vitamin A, pantothenic acid or vitamin B5, calcium and a little rarer vitamin K1. Vitamin K1 is important, for example, in reaching calcium in the skeleton and in many other functions. So you can benefit a lot from kelp by bringing it to your menu.

In addition, kelp contains high levels of antioxidants (simply put, substances that prevent cancer and other serious diseases), carotenoids and flavonoids.

Kelp can replace a multivitamin to some extent, providing a large number of various minerals and vitamins that are essential for the body. Of course, kelp does not contain B vitamins, so it is good to use kelp with a B-complex vitamin, to provide many of the nutrients your body needs.

Who exactly needs kelp and why bring this plant to your life? 

Kelp s for you if you have low levels of iodine in your body and therefore your thyroid gland is not working regularly. This is the number one reason why you can bring it into your daily life or consume it occasionally to ensure regular iodine levels in your body.

Low iodine levels cause metabolic problems, increase the risk of metabolic syndrome, have a detrimental effect on the immune system, and iodine deficiency causes an enlarged thyroid gland.

Consuming iodine-rich kelp, will increase your overall physical and mental health, help reduce stress levels, get rid of depression and improve your immune system.

In addition, iodine helps to improve brain function and is useful in concentrating difficulties.

Kelp creates a shield between you and many different diseases and pathogens, giving you strong protection against diseases!

The antioxidants in Kelp help to reduce inflammation in the body. This is accompanied by the overall healing of the body. The inflamed body is beneficial for cancer and many other serious diseases. Inflammation is the body that occurs for many different reasons. The biggest reason, for example, is the food we eat. If animal milk products are consumed, it is most likely to cause inflammation in your body through food (due to antibiotics and other medicines given to cows that are later passed on to dairy products. For example, cheeses, sour cream and other dairy products can be your pathogen).

Kelp has potential anti-cancer effects and should be considered if you want to help your body get rid of cancer and prevent it.

In addition, kelp is a seaweed that will help improve your metabolism. It speeds up the breakdown of fats, helping to lose weight and stabilize weight (stopping excessive weight gain). The reason why kelp helps with weight loss is that it normalizes blood sugar levels. Therefore, kelp is also useful for diabetics (in case of illness, consult your doctor first when taking kelp).

Chlorophyll in Kelp is also the one that activates the breakdown of fats.

Kelp is good for your cardiovascular system and heart health. It helps to control blood pressure by helping to reduce high blood pressure and to raise blood pressure that is too low. Kelp is used to cleaning blood and lower cholesterol. A large proportion of heart problems and heart attacks are associated with high cholesterol and clogged blood vessels. Kelp reduces blockages in your blood vessels by helping to clear them and clean the walls of the blood vessels. Kelp can be helpful in reducing heart rhythm problems.

Kelp is a potential alternative treatment for hepatitis C. With Kelp you can take action against this virus and give your body a chance to leave the virus or reduce its activity.

Iodine in Kelp also contributes to normal cognitive functioning, the functioning of the nervous system, and iodine also plays a role in achieving beautiful skin. Due to its high content of antioxidants, it is therefore good for the health of the whole body. Helps to detox, helping to expel toxins from the body.

You don't have to take

Kelp on a daily basis, for example, you can take it every other day if you want to get help from it. This allows you to consume other different Ayurvedic herbs or vitamins/minerals while consuming kelp.

However, it should not be overlooked that excessive iodine consumption can be harmful to the body. Therefore, it is wise to have an iodine test before consuming kelp. If you know that your iodine level is low and you have already had problems with iodine intake, then kelp is a super healer for you.

Kelp should be consumed in the prescribed amount, certainly not in excess. However, you do not have to be afraid of this plant, because it has many healing properties that allow you to heal yourself both mentally and physically.

In the case of Kelp, it is extremely important where you buy it and the quality of the kelp supplement. As it is a seaweed, cheaper kelp products may be contaminated with heavy metals The kelp sold in La Tene store is organic and clean, which I recommend consuming. If you want to buy kelp from another company, make sure of its quality.
