Kelp gives skin a healthy glow. It removes surface impurities and toxins. It restores moisture levels and revitalizes, nourishes, and firms the skin. It helps oxygenate and detoxify the dermal layer, and hydrates and purifies our skin while re-mineralizing it! It has also been known to improve skin texture, slow skin aging, and protect the skin from environmental elements. Kelp also contains antioxidants and beta-carotene, and when used in a powder form it exfoliates and is good for face masks.
Kelp has a salty taste and is used by many people in place of salt. It has a high content of natural plant iodine, which is absorbed much more slowly and therefore more safely, than chemical iodine. Iodine is necessary for proper function of the thyroid, which is essential for proper growth, energy, and metabolism.
The medicinal virtues of kelp are primarily related to its content of viscous fiber called algin. Algin absorbs most nutrients as well as toxins from the digestive tract in much the same way that a water softener removes the “hardness” from tap water. This results in less toxins entering the circulatory system. Kelp abounds in calcium, chlorine, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals, including trace minerals. Kelp regulates the thyroid and pituitary glands (activates all glands of body) and acts as an antibiotic and assists the thyroid in releasing iodine into the blood stream when infection is present. Iodine fights infections!
