Commonly referred to as seaweed, kelp grows along coastlines throughout the world. Botanically classified as algae, it is a very rich source of natural vitamins and minerals, including essential trace minerals. Kelp is dependent upon the sea for its nourishment, which is an excellent source because the sea receives all the minerals that have been washed from the land through the millennia. The plant can grow as much as two feet per day. In herbology, the entire plant is used. Kelp is especially high in iodine, which must be present for proper glandular function and metabolism. It also contains iron, sodium, phosphorous and calcium, as well as magnesium and potassium. Kelp is a source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, plus amino acids. Kelp makes a popular salt substitute. Because the plant’s nutrients come in a natural form, they are easily assimilated by the body.
