About Bladderwrack


Bladderwrack, or kelp, is useful in the treatment of underactive thyroid glands. People who are overweight due to thyroid trouble may benefit from this herb by reducing their weight. The iodine in the kelp helps maintain a healthy thyroid, and the nutrients and oxygen increase the body's ability to burn fat when exercising. Bladderwrack is rich in the constituents algin, mannitol, carotene, zeaxanthin, iodine, fucoidan, and bromine. It is reputed to have a beneficial effect for relief of rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis (internally and externally applied to inflamed joints).

Nutritional Role of Bladderwrack


Bladderwrack contains three main constituents: iodine, alginic acid, and fucoidan. The iodine in Bladderwrack helps those people deficient in this trace mineral to regulate and improve thyroid function, thus it is beneficial for hypothyroidism and goiter. It works as an anti-inflammatory and possesses anti-rheumatic properties to relieve arthritis and rheumatism. Bladderwrack's anti-bacterial properties help ward off bacteria and viruses. The alginic acid constituent, a type of dietary fiber, is useful in relieving constipation, diarrhea, and heartburn. The fucoidan constitutent, another type of fiber, contributes to lowering cholesterol and glucose levels.
