Why Kelp?

wp_featuredimage_kelpKelp is used in many foods around the world — broth, salad, soup, and stews, to name a few. And now, this mineral-rich sea vegetable is making its debut in Adult Oxylent.

Also known as brown seaweed, kelp is high in nutrients like fiber, iron, magnesium, niacin, and a range of vitamins. Notably, it is also a superior source of iodine, which is essential for proper thyroid function, immune response, and fetal skeletal and nervous system development. Many multivitamins contain iodine, since intake has been declining in the US for decades for various reasons: unreliable iodized salt content, lower salt intake overall, and fewer iodine-based additives in foods.

So, why did we choose kelp?

Unlike potassium iodide and sodium iodide, which are common iodine-rich food and supplement additives, kelp is a natural and whole food source of iodine that doesn’t have any side effects. Kelp is also used the world over, with a rich and time-tested history. And since the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that nutritional needs be met primarily with food sources — and kelp in its raw state is one of the best sources of iodine — we believe that using whole food kelp as our iodine source in Adult Oxylent is just another way to ensure that we are offering the most natural and high quality supplements for whole body nutrition.
