Real • Organic Kelp Powder
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.
