Side Effects of Kelp Supplements

Reply Sun 10 Mar, 2013 08:05 pm
Hello Friends,

Kelp, a form of brown seaweed, is a popular dietary supplement touted for weight loss, low thyroid function, arthritis and cancer prevention. According to the National Library of Medicine, kelp supplements contain a combination of brown seaweeds such as bladderwrack. The NLM indicates some animal and human testing have shown benefits for these conditions and others, but does not consider the evidence strong enough to recommend use for these problems. Kelp, like any supplement, contains chemicals and compounds that can exert certain actions in the body, resulting in a number of side effects. Kelp’s iodine content–a trace mineral necessary for thyroid function–in particular can lead to a number of issues.

Thanks and Regards,
Milon Jones
