Like all sea vegetables, kelp provides minerals found in sea water, especially iodine and trace minerals that may be lacking in our depleted soils.
For Westerners unaccustomed to including seaweed in the diet, a small daily supplement of kelp, in tablet or powdered form is a good idea, but don’t overdo -excess iodine may also cause thyroid problems. Sally Fallon and Mary G Enig PhD Nourishing Traditions Cookbook.
