Seaweed is naturally rich in iodine, an essential mineral that the body needs to make thyroid hormones. These hormones (as part of the endocrine system) control the body’s metabolism and many other important functions.
The body also needs thyroid hormones for the brain development of babies during pregnancy and infancy. Recent research shows the UK is one of just two high-income countries with iodine deficiency issues, and has a worse rate than some developing countries.
This is largely linked to diet and poor intake of iodine rich foods (white fish, dairy and seaweeds of the right kinds).
Independent research shows that our seaweed releases iodine more slowly, with longer retention in the body as compared to artificial sources (potassium iodide) often used in other supplementation.
