- Kelp is a great antioxidant, which helps in fighting against disease-causing free radicals.
- Antioxidant minerals, such as manganese and zinc, help combat oxidative stress and may help protect cardiovascular health and prevent cancer.
Kelp Formula is designed to maintain a healthy thyroid gland, it contains kelp which is a good source of iodine - a vital mineral for the thyroid gland, and six other herbs.
Kelp is a sea vegetable that is very rich in trace minerals, so you don't just get iodine when you consume kelp.
However, it is particularly rich in iodine - around 500 micrograms (mcg) per gram. Each capsule of our Kelp Formula contains about 60mg kelp. Therefore each capsule will provide about 30 mcg of iodine from the kelp content.
Based on the toxicity estimate above, you would have to take over 50 capsules per day on a fairly long term basis to induce iodine toxicity. Our maximum recommendation (see suggestions below) is usually 6 capsules per day, which would only include around 180 mcg's per day of iodine This is miles below the toxicity threshold.
Even if you were to also take Kelp Formula alongside Thyroid Support Formula or TH207, both of which also contain iodine derived from Kelp, you would still be below the toxicity threshold based on taking the label dosages.
How To Use:
Take 1 capsule daily preferably with food.
