'Certified Organic' Kelp is Purest Natural Source of Iodine

Kelp is a seaweed. Seaweed naturally contains high amounts Iodine, which is necessary for normal thyroid function, as well as other trace minerals and vitamins A, B, C & E. The thyroid is a large gland in the neck that produces a hormone that effectively controls metabolism. If your thyroid is underactive (hypothyroidism), the result is weight gain. If it is overactive (hyperthyroidism) then the result is weight loss. This a clear, tell-tale sign that regulating the normal function of the thyroid is extremely important especially when it comes to weight management.

Iodine is the element that is needed for the production of thyroxine (the thyroid hormone). If you do not have enough iodine in your body, you cannot make enough thyroid hormone, which will impair thyroid function, resulting in health problems.

But despite the benefits of seaweed, bioaccumulation of heavy metals can occur in the sea plants, building more and more over time bringing about warnings concerning that the seaweed could contain high levels of arsenic for instance.

Luckily, certified organic seaweed removes all worries and concerns about bioaccumulation and contaminants. Certification means it is a safe product as they are not allowed to contain heavy metals and other contaminants.

Natures Life Organic Kelp is made from pure kelp, sourced from the Outer Hebrides. This means that it is one of the few seaweeds to be certified free of ocean borne contaminants, toxic metals and microbial pathogens. Certified organic by the Soil Association. It has been carefully prepared to ensure 350µg of iodine is provided in every capsule.

Features and Benefits – Why Take Natures Life Organic Kelp (Ascophyllum nodosum) 500mg:

  • Certified Organic
  • Iodine is necessary for healthy thyroid function
  • Contains naturally sourced iodine and trace minerals from clean ocean water
  • The thyroid controls metabolism which may also influence weight loss

 

Is Natures Life Organic Kelp (Ascophyllum nodosum) 500mg Right For Me?

Iodine is an essential mineral often overlooked by many of us as we are unaware of its importance in terms of our health. ‘Organic’ Kelp is pure, certified free from of ocean borne contaminants, toxic metals and microbial pathogens making it the safe choice for a kelp supplement. Just one capsule daily ensures you receive the RDA of Iodine. Iodine has been shown to help support normal function of the thyroid and the release of the hormone ‘throxine’ therefore Natures Life Organic Kelp may be beneficial to you to help support normal thyroid function.

The Science behind Natures Life Organic Kelp

Published in Endocrine Practice 2003, Researchers Clark et al conducted a study ‘Effects of kelp supplementation on thyroid function in euthyroid subjects’ whereby they studied the effects of ingestion of two different doses of supplemental kelp on the thyroid function of subjects with healthy thyroid function.

Subjects were either given either 4 capsules of alfalfa, 2 capsules of alfalfa and 2 of kelp, or 4 kelp capsules per day for 4 weeks. Thyrotropin (thyroid-stimulating hormone or TSH), free thyroxine, and total triiodothyronine were assessed at weeks 0, 4, and 6. Response to thyrotropin-releasing hormone stimulation, urinary iodine excretion, and basal metabolic rate were determined at weeks 0 and 4.

Results showed that short-term dietary supplementation with kelp significantly increases both basal and post-stimulation thyroid-stimulating hormone. These findings corroborate previous studies on the effects of supplemental iodide given to euthyroid subjects for a similar period. By stimulating the thyroid hormone, this study demonstrates that Iodine (which is found in Kelp) is effective in helping support normal thyroid function.

Organic Kelp in the Press

Health Article: Daily Mail: First it was wheatgrass, then kale and now it's KELP: Why seaweed is now at the top of the superfood table

It's the new superfood that's been steadily gaining popularity, especially with nutritionists and those in the know. 

Better known as algae or seaweed, kelp is now being touted as the latest nutritional powerhouse and is set to take over from kale as the trendy new ingredient to add to your diet.

The vitamin-packed seaweed is not only a concentrated sourced of calcium and iodine, it has also been found to have natural antioxidant properties.

Kelp has iodine, because only ocean products contain iodine. Iodine nourishes the thyroid gland, the powerhouse of the metabolism. It's the one thing that most people have out of balance when fatigued.

Kelp and kale are different as they do different things but it does have iodine which kale doesn't and magnesium and calcium which kale does.

So if you take kelp it does have everything in it.

Because kelp grows in a nutrient-rich water, it is packed full of nutrients. The seaweed is a natural source of vitamins and mineral and is particularly high in calcium. It is a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E as well as minerals including zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, potassium, copper and is especially high in calcium.

It is also very high in iodine. We need iodine for efficient thyroid and pituitary function. The thyroid is responsible for regulating metabolism and body temperature.  For this reason many people take kelp to help with weight control.

Product Review(s) - 5 Reviews

I had been skinny since I could remember and was always unable to gain weight. I wasn’t told I had a thyroid issue but I started taking Organic Kelp as I read it contained Iodine which can help with thyroid issues. Since I started taking it I have felt better in myself and have put on a few ‘healthy’ pounds as I assume my metabolism is better than it was.

0 of 0 people found this review Helpful. Did you? Yes | No

I suspected I had a slow metabolism as I am overweight, and even though I started eating right for months and exercised regularly, I couldn’t lose much weight. So I started taking these capsules. They had an amazing impact and somehow improved my metabolism so now I’m finding it easier to lose weight whereas before I struggled a lot.
