Organic HEBRIDEAN Kelp Capsules
Nature's 'almost perfect' multivitamin! Full of natural vitamins, minerals & essential micronutrients important for good health.
Did you know that around 2 billion people in the world are not getting enough iodine in their diet? Iodine is essential to thyroid function, energy levels, thinking, problem solving and memory skills, healthy skin and a normally operating nervous system. It is found in high levels in seaweeds.
If you feel run down and lacking in energy, forgetful, with dry skin, and your body is showing signs of being frayed around the edges, the vitality boost that chelated iodine can give you may make a huge difference.
90 x 500 mg capsules per bottle.

Many 'man made' vitamins and minerals are not easily absorbed by the body so it is important to get them from natural sources that our body can digest. Seaweed is a whole, complete food that mankind has eaten since the dawn of time and perfectly suited to our bodies.
Our pure wild organic seaweed is sustainably harvested from the clear waters off the remote conservation islands of the Outer Hebrides. This method of harvesting and drying is essential in:
preserving the ocean - it doesn't strip out all life from the sea bed maintaining purity - not contaminated with metals or effluent maintaining all nutrients - through gentle drying of the seaweed
Many cheap commercial sources heat the seaweed so high in the drying process, that little goodness remains. Our Seagreens kelp is over 60% higher in all tested vitamins and minerals and contains over 60% less silica (sand!).
Each capsule contains:
500 mg Seagreens® 100% certified organic kelp Ascophyllum nodosum .
(Vegetarian capsule: water, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose.)
Each capsule contains a good source of iodine 350µg (mcg).
*1g = 1000mg = 1000000µg
100% Vegan. Contains no animal products. The capsule shell is made from easily digested plant-derived cellulose. Also certified kosher.

With busy lifestyles we don't always get the nutrition we need from our diet. Undernourishing the body, without all the nutrients it needs, can be at the bottom of a lot of health conditions from fatigue, to digestive problems and even joint pain.
Adults and children over 12 years:
One capsule per day, at meals. Take with water or add to food, juice or a smoothie.
Children over 4 years:
Contents of half a capsule per day in food or juice. Sprinkle on to food to add a nutritional boost.
For those with higher nutritional needs, higher amounts can be taken - a gram is 2 capsules - but we do not recommend exceeding 4 grams (8 capsules a day).
Taking a gram of seaweed a day can help to ensure your vitality and energy, and keep you feeling happy, healthy and active.
Seagreens is a good source of iodine and one a day meets all your daily requirements, even when you are pregnant or breastfeeding which is when your body needs more iodine to support the healthy growth and development of your baby.
Do not take kelp capsules if you are allergic to iodine or seaweeds.
We advise that you take special care in taking kelp if you are taking thyroid medication or have a thyroid condition.
Underactive thyroid due to iodine insufficiency
If you have an underactive thyroid gland that has been caused by iodine insufficiency you may find that you need to take less levothyroxine as the iodine content of your diet increases.
If you take a capsule of knotted kelp a day as well as thyroxine, your thyroxine dose may well need to be lowered. If you intend to take both together we recommend that you introduce the kelp 4 weeks before your next TSH serum blood test and inform your doctor so that your medication can be adjusted accordingly, if applicable. More information about our experience with customers taking seaweed while on medication is here.
Underactive thyroid due to auto-immune diseases
If you have an auto-immune thyroid condition such as Hashimoto's disease you may be very sensitive to even small fluctuations of iodine in your diet.
Underactive thyroid due lack of a functioning thyroid gland
Seaweed is a source of dietary iodine and not a source of thyroid hormones. If your underactive thyroid is due to a damaged or lack of a functioning thyroid gland, you will probably always require levothyroxine or a dessicated thyroid supplement.
It is always best to advise your doctor or medical herbalist about any significant changes to your diet and lifestyle.
