Kelp is a source of vitamins and minerals such as iodine, potassium, magnesium and iron.
Iodine is an important element in the production of thyroid hormones that regulate the body's energy production, and promotes good growth and development. It helps to regulate many body functions by constantly releasing a steady amount of thyroid hormones into the bloodstream. The thyroid is also responsible for managing our internal bio-rhythms and body clock.
It's essential that everybody these days takes something to get additional iodine in their diets. Lots of research suggests that most of the world (often 90% or more) is iodine deficient and therefore often have thyroid issues, whether chronic or not.
More info on thyroid:
The function of the thyroid gland is to take iodine, found in many foods, and convert it into thyroid hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroid cells are the only cells in the body which can absorb iodine. These cells combine iodine and the amino acid tyrosine to make T3 and T4.
Iodine is an essential mineral commonly found in seafood. Your thyroid gland uses it to make thyroid hormones, which help control growth, repair damaged cells and support a healthy metabolism
