kelp iodine immunity mothers day

Give your mum a detoxifying gift from nature with added immunity

As Mother’s Day approaches, are you thinking of ways to show your mum how much you love and appreciate her? One way is by aiding her health and ongoing vitality. What better way to do that than by giving a powerful natural medicine like kelp?

Kelp is a natural supplement that will boost the immune system and provide essential nutrients including iodine, that is sorely missing in our modern diet.

Kelp is a type of seaweed that grows in shallow ocean waters.  Its stem is rich in iodine, a nutrient that is crucial for thyroid function and maintaining a healthy metabolism.

Boost iodine levels easily with kelp

Iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism, a condition where the thyroid gland is unable to produce enough hormones, causing fatigue, weight gain, and other health problems. Incorporating kelp into the diet can be an excellent way to ensure that mums are getting enough iodine to support their thyroid health.

Kelp contains an array of vitamins and minerals 

In addition to iodine, kelp contains vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. These nutrients are essential for maintaining a healthy immune system, as they strengthen the body’s natural defenses to fight infection and diseases. Mums are always busy taking care of the family and often put their own health last. By making a simple change and incorporating kelp into their daily routine, our mothers can support their immune system and overall health.

Iodine is not just important for thyroid health, it also plays a crucial role in the immune system. Studies have shown that iodine deficiency can impair immune function and increase the risk of infections.

Antioxidant properties help to cleanse the liver

Kelp can also provide an antioxidant boost to the liver due to a compound called fucoxanthin that can help reduce the accumulation of fat occuring in the liver. As the liver’s function is to filter out toxins, adding a small amount of kelp each day can help to maintain a healthy liver.

Kelp is easy to incorporate into daily diets and its cost effective 

One serving of a surprisingly small amount (1g/1 teaspoon) contains the recommended daily intake. Grassland Nutrition has a moreish Bull Kelp Crunch that is harvested from the stem, the most nutritious part of the kelp and freeze-dries it into flakes that can be added to almost anything.  We like it with barbecued cuts of meat, sprinkled on eggs, even on yogurt.  You could try it on soups, salads, and stir-fries for a light salty crunch too.

Why we chose Bull Kelp as the best wholefood kelp on the market 

Bull Kelp is a unique species of Kelp that wells up from the depths of the The Great Southern Ocean. Due to cold sea temperatures, it has the highest natural vitamin and mineral content of any brown kelp in the world. We source our kelp from the West Coast of Tasmania. It is hand-harvested sustainably from the shores of the Australian Southern Ocean, recognised as the world’s cleanest environment and is tested 100% free of inorganic arsenic and radiation.

Maximum nutrient preservation is a key focus and so we process our kelp gently by freeze-drying rather than heat drying, which tends to destroy essential
