Oregon's Wild Harvest Organic Kelp, 90 Non-GMO Vegetarian Capsules
Certified organic kelp thallus is grown in clean ocean waters that allow for the organic certification of this quality sea vegetable. The 'organic' status assures that each harvester must monitor their beds for sustainability. They must keep their freshly picked plants clear of possible contaminants throughout the harvest transport, drying and packing process. The plants are tested for contaminants such as E coli, salmonella, yeasts andmolds. They are randomly inspected to insure compliance.
As an herbal supplement, take one capsule daily with or without food, or as directed by your health care professional.
Background and Use
Seaweed has been used medicinally in Asia for over 5000 years. The sea vegetables (of which there are numerous species) have been used in traditional medicine, cosmetics and consumed as a food.
In the 1860s, it was discovered that some seaweeds serve as thyroid stimulants. This effect is due to the high iodine levels found in plants such as Kelp. The thyroid gland needs dietary iodine to produce the thyroid hormones which regulate metabolism in every cell of the body and play a role in virtually all physiological functions. In the United States it is rare to have an underactive thyroid brought about by an iodine deficiency due to the fortification of salt with iodine (iodized salt). However, recent trends show that people are getting less iodine dietarily due to a reduction of salt in their diet.
Consult your health care professional if using Kelp for thyroid imbalance. Keep out of reach of children. Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional. Not recommended for long-term use without periodic breaks.
A small percentage of people are sensitive to iodine and could develop a painful and enlarged thyroid gland if they consume iodine rich substances such as Kelp for longer than one month.
