According to scientists in Japan, a study that was undertaken on kelp had proven to give long life to the subject, in spite of the subject being fed on carcinogenic substances. Hence, it is factual that kelp has phenomenal elements to provide us with many health related benefits
The health benefits of marine algae and seaweeds have long been understood by Eastern medicine, and their inclusion in Eastern diets has been associated with a reduced incidence of certain chronic diseases. Kelp, which includes a variety of seaweeds, is often referred to as “a herb from the sea” and is found across the oceans of the world. A specific form of brown kelp, a member of the Fucaceae family, is Ascophyllum nodosum which is found in the North Atlantic.
Kelp is naturally nutrient dense and contains a broad spectrum of micronutrients including mineral trace elements, vitamins, carotenoids and prebiotics. However, it is perhaps best known for its rich iodine content, which means it is of great potential benefit for the health of the thyroid gland.
The thyroid is the master metabolic gland within the body, and without it our bodies would not be able to convert nutrients into energy. Studies have shown that supplementation with powdered kelp restores normal thyroid function and urinary iodine levels in patients with iodine deficient hypothyroidism
As well as being a rich source of iodine, Ascophyllum nodosum is also recognised for having a high content of polyphenols, particularly phlorotannins, as well as phenolic acids and flavonoids. These phytonutrients have been shown to have specific therapeutic benefits on many aspects of physiology. Studies suggest that potential mechanisms of action of these phytonutrients include: antioxidant capabilities, blood sugar regulation, cognitive support, immune stimulation, regulation of blood lipids and has been shown to excel with regard to weight management.
