“Like all sea vegetables, kelp capsules  provides minerals found in sea water, especially iodine and trace minerals that may be leaking 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 Cook book

Because of soil depletion from unsustainable farming practices, most whole foods are lacking in sufficient mineral levels necessary for human health.

GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES ON SAFE IODINE IN TAKE

The World Health Organisation considers 1100 mcg iodine per day to be the safe upper limit.

The US Institute of Medicine has set 1100 mcg iodine per day as a safe upper limit.

The UK Department of Health recommends that a daily intake of 1000 mcg iodine should not be exceeded.

However, there is a lot of controversy over these fairly arbitrary figures, and an amount of iodine by a person’s weight has also been proposed. The allowance for a person who weighs 80 kg would be 2400 micrograms per day (mcg/day) – nearly 4 grams of Ascophyllum

Research on Bladder Wrack (fucus vesiculosus) 2008.

The consumption of seaweeds has increased in recent years. However, their adverse and beneficial effects have scarcely been studied. Two extracts from the brown seaweed Fucus vesiculosus containing 28.8% polyphenols or 18% polyphenols plus 0.0012% fucoxanthin have been obtained and studied to determine their toxicity in mice and rats and also their antioxidant activity.
Both extracts were shown to lack any relevant toxic effects in an acute toxicity test following a 4 week daily treatment in rats. The extracts exhibited antioxidant activity in noncellular systems and in activated RAW 264.7 macrophages, as well as in ex vivo assays in plasma and erythrocytes, after the 4 week treatment in rats. Our ex vivo results indicated that compounds from extract 2 may be more easily absorbed and that the antioxidants in their parent or metabolized form are more active. These findings support the view that the daily consumption of F. vesiculosus extract 2 (Healsea) would have potential benefits to humans.
