About the organic Seagreens® food-approved seaweed
This is a large, common brown alga (Phaeophyceae) in the family Fucaceae, being the only species in the genus Ascophyllum. It is seaweed of the northern Atlantic Ocean, and is also known as rockweed, Norwegian kelp, knotted kelp, knotted wrack or egg wrack. It is common on the north-western coast of Europe (from Svalbard to Portugal) including east Greenland and the north-eastern coast of North America. Seagreens® Ascophyllum nodosum is sourced from the Scottish Outer Hebrides and is the highest of Seagreens’® species in terms of iodine levels – typically 700mcg iodine per 1g.
Ascophyllum nodosum contains both macro-nutrients (e.g. nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur) and micro-nutrients (e.g. manganese, copper, iron, zinc etc). It is also a source of cytokinins, auxin-like gibberellins, betaines, mannitol, organic acids, polysaccharides, amino acids and proteins.
Known by the common name bladder wrack or bladderwrack, Fucus vesiculosus is a seaweed found on the coasts of the North Sea, the western Baltic Sea and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It also known by the common names black tang, rockweed, bladder fucus, sea oak, black tany, cut weed, dyers fucus, red fucus and rock wrack.
It contains mucilage, algin, mannitol, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, bromine, potassium, volatile oils, iodine and other minerals. It was actually the original source of iodine, discovered in 1811.
Overall, seaweeds form an essential source of natural iodine and are described as an ideal food-safe natural source of this important mineral.

The iodine also has the added benefit of being sourced from seaweed that naturally contains all of the other minerals and micronutrients needed for its proper transport and metabolism (including selenium, tyrosine, zinc, copper, vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and C).
As most iodine is from dairy and meat, this is ideal for vegan, vegetarian, allergy and intolerance diets.
