Sea kelp is really just another term for the regular old seaweed that washes up every day on beaches all over the world.
It has been used for many thousands of years as a medicine to treat a variety of illnesses, and as is so often the case, modern science is now confirming that our ancestors knew all along, that a traditional remedy is in fact grounded in solid science.
Sea kelp grows in underwater forests and only in nutrient-rich areas, soaking up the bounty of the sea in a potent package of vitamins, minerals and natural fibers.
What does it contains?
Sea kelp like any green plant, contains chlorophyll, which is a powerful detoxifying agent and can be used to cleanse the body of impurities both external and internal.
It is also a good source of essential fatty acids, which the body needs for a variety of purposes including maintaining a healthy heart and circulatory system, healthy joints, and optimal brain function.
These fatty acids can also help reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes by strengthening the arteries and preventing plaque from building up in the blood vessels.
Studies have shown decreased risk of complications due to heart problems when patients took essential omega 3 fatty acids on a regular basis, the same essential fatty acids that are present in sea kelp.
