Term Definition

Kelp is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, growing in colder waters especially on the coasts of North America and Iceland, and in the southern hemisphere off the coasts of New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. Kelp, also known as Kombu in Japan, has long been a staple along with other seaweeds in the Japanese diet. Kelp is dependent on the sun to flourish which makes it rich in chlorophyll, a powerful antioxidant, and is the only concentrated source of Vitamin D from a vegetable. It also contains vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6 and B12 as well as minerals calcium, potassium, and iodine and many trace elements. Kelp has sodium alginate which is proven to cleanse radioactive toxins and heavy metals from the body through chelation. There is ongoing research on the cancer fighting properties of Kelp, as well as its ability to promote healthy intestinal bacteria and improve B-cell production. Read more about Kelp if you plan on using it as a supplement and only buy human grade Kelp from a health food store. It is available as a powder that is easily mixed in with most feeds.
