Kelp has many health benefits they include:
Vitamins Kelp has many vitamins especially vitamin B which is essential for the body’s cellular metabolism and it provides your body with great energy. It contains vitamins E and Vitamin C which are great antioxidants and they promote blood vessel health.

Sodium-alginate allows the calcium to be easily absorbed through the body’s intestinal walls while at the same time binding the strontium, which is then excreted from your body.
Kelp is also a natural source of Iodine which also helps in protecting the body against any radiation poisoning. Iodine is also of great importance to the thyroid, to the body’s immune system, and also in female hormone-regulation. Iodine is quite essential to your body’s healthy functioning of the thyroid glands. Kelp’s high-levels of iodine normally help in regulating the thyroid hormones. An iodine deficiency can lead to goiter, or to the swelling of the thyroid. Iodine is the key element that is used to synthesize the thyroid-hormones thyroxine and the triiodothyronine.
Kelp serves as an anti-inflammatory supplement for the body. It contains fucoidan, which is a complex carbohydrate which is a great anti
