Kelp is a supplement designed to provide a natural source of iodine from ocean kelp. Kelp contains a wide variety of nutrients and has been a staple of several Asian cultures for centuries. It has grown in popularity in the western world more recently as more people have discovered the benefits that kelp offers.‡
Kelp is effective in supporting healthy weight, supports thyroid health, and supports bone health through its natural iodine and vitamin K content.‡
Kelp provides 500 micrograms of natural iodine from Atlantic Sea Kelp which provides support for a healthy thyroid gland and fat metabolism.‡
