Kelp is the term for a family of seaweed plants, large in size and brownish-green in colour. It's known for its ability to grow very quickly - up to two feet per day - and is used for everything from Japanese cuisine to supplements and potentially as a future energy source. As kelp thrives in shallow, nutrient rich waters it naturally contains a number of minerals including iodine, iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium.
Kelp: a rich source of nutrients
Kelp is a rich source of iodine - a trace mineral that is crucial for the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland as well as thyroid hormone production. And that's not all this seaweed contains - it's also a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E. Holland & Barrett stocks a range of natural kelp supplements, including 15mg capsules.
