Empower your health with the power of nature! Did you know that Atlantic kelp supports your thyroid, cares for your heart health and provides your body with beneficial vitamins and minerals all at the same time? Organic kelp really is that powerful! What’s more, this tasty seaweed also has a deliciously salty taste to top up your favourite dishes with a kick instead of salt. Let’s take a closer look at this exciting algae and see why kelp should be part of your daily diet!

What is kelp?

Healing organic kelp (Laminara saccharina) is a type of brown seaweed that can be found growing in the ‘underwater forests’ of the ocean depths. According to various opinions, brown seaweeds are believed to have originated as early as around 2-5 million years ago. However, these truly long-lived aquatic plants are still honoured today, and for a good reason.

Kelp as a rich superfood

Beneficial kelp is a nutrient-rich food, containing a total of 46 minerals, 16 amino acids and 11 vitamins. Amongst other things, this powerful algae is packed with vitamins A, B and C, as well as rich in iodine, iron, folic acid, calcium and, to a lesser extent, zinc. In addition, kelp helps to stimulate cellular metabolism, increase mental and physical performance and cleanse the body of waste products, including heavy metals and toxins. Kelp is also rich in antioxidants, which help to fight free radicals and prevent various types of free radical damage.

Kelp provides antiviral protection for the thyroid gland.

Minerals in kelp such as iodine and zinc act as an antiseptic in the thyroid gland and liver, cleansing the organs of various viruses such as Epstein-Barr, thereby helping to recover from various health problems. Among other things, kelp also protects the thyroid gland from radiation and helps to prevent cancer.

Kelp may also be of support in case of:

  • recovery from various traumas;
  • mood swings;
  • low iodine levels;
  • nervous pain and spasms;
  • memory problems;
  • various types of inflammation (including cystitis, enteritis);
  • migraines;
  • weakened immunity;
  • epilepsy, anaemia and leukaemia;
  • stress and depression;
  • concentration difficulties;
  • liver problems;
  • thyroid diseases (e.g. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Graves’ disease).

How to use kelp?

Because of its salty flavour, kelp is ideal for sprinkling on salads, soups, sandwiches and sauces. However, kelp’s rich healing properties also make it a great healthy addition to breakfast, supporting the body with essential vitamins. Kelp adds a delicious flavour to a variety of seasonal dishes. So if you’re a fan of Asian-style noodles, soups or poke bowls, for example, be sure to try enriching your favourite dish with healthy seaweed broth next time! Or feel free to snack on the seaweed flakes straight from the packet.

When to use kelp?

If you’re struggling with low iodine levels or other health concerns, want to give your body a boost or are looking for an exciting taste sensation, it’s worth adding kelp to your daily diet. Kelp flakes are easy and convenient to consume and store, and require no special preparation, making them perfect for those with a fast-paced lifestyle.

High quality raw ingredients for the ultimate benefit of your health.

Organic Atlantic Kelp is dried at a very low temperature – below 35 degrees Celsius – to ensure that all the benefits of the product are retained and no vitamin minerals are lost. Drying, however, allows the product to be conveniently delivered to you and safely stored for longer periods. It also makes it really easy and convenient to consume the algae. The kelp sold in Centralsun’s e-shop is 100% natural, pure and organic, packed in 250 gram packets.
