Now Kelp delivers the natural nutrient profile found in Genuine Whole Foods.
Kelp is a large, leafy brown algae that belongs to the seaweed family and grows in the colder waters of the world's oceans. It is a good source of marine minerals, including potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron. It is also an excellent source of iodine, which has been shown to support healthy thyroid function. Your thyroid gland is responsible for producing the hormones that support normal cellular metabolism. As with most green foods, kelp also contains vitamins and cell salts essential for good nutrition.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 level scoops (200 mg) daily, preferably with meals. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Thyroid Energy, L-Tyrosine and Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.
Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.
Entire contents derived from natural marine sources.

Adds lot's of micro-minerals and vitamins in a good balanced way. Including iodine, that seems to help with thyroid (from what I've read). I stay away from salt to help with BP, so this should help supply the iodine. The scoop is small. I like to take 1/4 level teaspoon at a time for a 670 mcg dose. There are 450 servings at that dose (level quarter teaspoon). Great value. iHerb is the best. UPDATE: I had new bloodwork done and my TSH has fell to 12 from 18, but is still very high, so have started on Natural Thyroid Medication. I'll lower the serving of kelp to the recommended dose. Seems that lack of iodine isn't causing my hypothyroid problem.

The taste is like sea water. It is easy to discover that it is natural product. I like the taste. I like the sentence of Dr. William Davis, the author of the book "Wheat belly": " If it (iodine) were a drug, it would enjoy repeated expensive marketing and a price tag around $150 per month. But it is an essential nutrient that enjoys none of the attention-getting advantages of drugs, and therefore is unlikely to be mentioned by your doctor, yet carries great advantage for helping to maintain overall health."

Many kelp products are not ground fine enough, but this one is.
Easy to use

I've have always taken kelp product in capsule form as a valuable addition to my diet. However, I love this product because it easier for me to take it as I can put it directly in any liquid I'm having and also knowing that I am having the daily requirement. It's also very mild in taste.
very good product
