Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosis) is a cool-water sea vegetable (also known as Kelp) that has been traditionally used to support the thyroid, as it is rich in iodine, a mineral that is known to stimulate thyroid gland functioning.
In addition, Bladderwrack can even help improve symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism that are related to low thyroid function.
However, be sure to only use products containing Bladderwrack from a trusted source. Kelp harvested from the beach or near to the coast may be contaminated with industrial waste, sewage, lead, mercury or other toxins. Native Remedies products containing Bladderwrack utilize only the highest quality, laboratory-tested, raw ingredients formulated in therapeutic dosage, free of added fillers such as gluten, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
