Derived from the vast "forests" in the colder waters of the world's oceans, Kelp, also known as Varech, is a large, leafy seaweed belonging to the brown algae family. It has been a key ingredient in East Asian cuisines, such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, for centuries due to its nutritious properties.
What makes this supplement particularly important is its richness in iodine, a nutrient essential for healthy thyroid function. Chronic iodine deficiencies can result in numerous health issues including thyroid gland malfunction, neurological problems, gastrointestinal disorders, and skin abnormalities. For pregnant or breastfeeding women, an iodine deficiency could lead to neurocognitive deficits in their babies.
Although such deficiencies are rare in industrialized nations like Canada, certain populations can still benefit from this supplement. These include people who avoid salt and meat or those with a hyperactive thyroid, as they may not get sufficient iodine from their diet.
Our Kelp supplement comes in the form of easy-to-swallow 150 mg tablets sourced from the full Varech plant, providing all the trace elements found in this nutrient-dense source. Whether you're a vegan, vegetarian, or someone looking to boost their iodine intake, our Kelp supplement offers a natural, health-promoting solution.
