Details

What is Kelp?

Kelp is a large, brown form of seaweed or algae that typically grows in shallow, colder and nutrient-rich shorelines across the planet. For thousands of years, it has been a part of the traditional diet in countries such as China, Korea and Japan. However, in the West it has become increasingly popular and used as a therapeutic supplement! (1). The rising popularity of the natural oceanic superfood is most likely due to the high concentrations of iodide that it contains, among other nutrients.
Iodide (iodine in the body) is a trace element that is essential for optimal thyroid function and is the first line of action in the prevention of thyroid disease, hyperthyroidism (2). Additionally, even small amounts of Kelp, can provide a range of additional nutrients such as iron, manganese, magnesium and calcium.

Health Benefits of Kelp

Kelp is a relatively new supplement, and so research is currently undeveloped. However, there are some studies that have examined some potential benefits of ground, kelp powder or capsules.
Thyroid Function – Iodide is an inorganic salt, which provides iodine to the body when consumed. Iodine is required for the production of thyroid hormones, which are essential for optimal thyroid function. However, it has been estimated that approximately 2 billion people do not consume sufficient amounts of this essential nutrient (3). Because of the rich iodide content in Kelp, it was first proposed to have a beneficial impact on the development of thyroid disorders by Swiss physician, Coindet in 1813 (4).
In one of the first clinical trials of kelp supplements, 36 healthy subjects were assigned to either a high-kelp, low-kelp, or placebo group. All groups took four capsules per day, which contained a placebo of alfafa, low-dose or high-dose kelp. After four weeks, the primary hormone thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) had increased significantly in both the low- and high-dose groups compared to the placebo. There was however reduced concentrations of the active thyroid hormone, known as T3, in the high-dose group, compared to the low-dose and placebo groups (1). This has important implications, as excess iodine intake can also have adverse effects. Make sure to carefully examine the instructions on this packet, prior to consumption.
Antioxidants – Kelp is also touted as a rich source of several antioxidants, including carotenoids, flavanols and alkaloids (5). Antioxidants are important minerals that help to mitigate inflammation and to reduce free radical formation. These free radicals accumulate when we engage in unhealthy behaviours such as smoking, drinking alcohol or being overly stressed. Therefore, by mobilizing and neutralizing them, these antioxidants are crucial to long-term health. Unfortunately, few studies have examined the direct effects of the antioxidants in Kelp among humans. However, in a study assessing the antioxidant potential of various strains, concluded that due to the high flavanol and phenolic compounds, Kelp should have a high potential for free radical scavenging (6).
For example, one of the most impactful of these antioxidants is Fucoxanthin, which is known as a carotenoid. This has been shown to reduce oxidative damage in animal cells and believed to have more pronounced effects in those with overweight or obesity (7).
