Weight loss: Iodine is a trace mineral vital for the operation of the thyroid gland which plays an important part in body development and metabolism.

Kelp is more than capable as an adequate daily women’s vitamin because it is packed with other necessary nutrients such as iron, calcium and potassium. Since these are lost during monthly cycles, pregnancy, or lactation, women should especially take note of all the things that kelp has to offer. Because it has a natural antibiotic synthesized into it, kelp assists the body in fighting off infection, so it is especially helpful during cold and flu season, or for those who are susceptible to sinus congestion due to allergies or who have a lowered immune system. The magnesium and iron in kelp is beneficial to a healthy bloodstream as it creates a friendly environment for the growth of red blood cells. This gives us energy and helps to maintain homeostasis.
