Overview

Three components that make Kelp Powder nourishing to eat:

  •  Chlorophyll and other plant pigments: Chlorophyll benefits include helping fight cancer, improving liver detoxification, binding with toxic metals to hamper absorption, speeding up wound healing, improving digestion and weight control, and protecting skin health. The primary reason chlorophyll is considered a superfood is because of its strong antioxidant and anticancer effects.
  •  Researchers reporting in the June 2011 issue of “Lipids in Health and Disease” examined the efficacy of using algae as an omega-3 source. Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega-3s comprise a class of fatty acids deemed essential, as critical compounds the body can't make. Algae provide a viable alternative omega-3 source, which is comforting news to vegetarians. Omega-3s found in algae is triglyceride, the same as found in fish oil. The research teams found that supplementation with algal DHA reduced human triglycerides and raised HDL-cholesterol. Algae yield DHA that is sustainable and can carry the vegetarian label, Real House Algae Powder is qualified for certification as kosher and organic. DHA comprises about half of the fatty acids in the brain and is associated with the additional set of health benefits established for omega-3s, notably the protection of the retina, the development of the brain and the prevention of cognitive decline.
  • Important marine minerals such as iodine, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Consuming iodine from dietary sources such as seaweed is essential for the maintenance of good health, particularly for thyroid health.

Main Functions

 Weight Loss  - Kelp contains a fibre known as alginate. Research shows that this fibre can block fat absorption in the intestine. A study from Food Chemistry showed that alginate could reduce fat absorption in the intestine by as much as 75%.

 Reduces Inflammation  - Kelp is incredibly high in antioxidants that battle inflammation in the body. Antioxidants such as carotenoids, flavonoids, and alkaloids are all present in kelp powder. This helps the body get rid of free radicals.

 Promise against Cancer  - There are numerous studies out there showing that some of the ingredients in kelp powder could protect the body against cancer. Some studies have shown that kelp can protect the body against colon and breast cancer, while the active compound fucoidan can prevent the spread of lung and prostate cancer.

 Metabolism  - The high concentration of iodine is beneficial for helping the body with proper metabolism. It’s also good for increasing energy levels and brain function. Read the caution below for over-consuming iodine.

 

Caution

Health advisers warn that ingesting concentrated amounts of kelp can introduce excessive amounts of iodine to the body. This can overstimulate the thyroid and cause harm. There are significant health risks to consuming excessive iodine. It’s important to only eat kelp in moderation, and it should be avoided by those suffering from hyperthyroidism.
