Iodine is a vital microelement for the body, responsible for the normal functioning

thyroid gland, which, in turn, regulates growth and metabolism.

Every person should eat food rich in them every day.  The daily need for it in humans is 150 mcg.  Separately it is necessary to say about pregnant and lactating women, since their daily rate increases and is 200 mcg.

Iodine deficiency causes:

– Severe diseases associated not only with the endocrine, but also with the immune system.

– tiredness, lethargy, depression

– increased cholesterol, and even a tumor of the thyroid gland.


There are many different options that will help you saturate the body with the right amount of this.

trace element: baked potatoes, cranberries, prunes, cod, lobster, canned tuna, dried seaweed, milk, natural yogurt, salt.  But his best source are seaweed.

Useful properties of kelp (kombu):

  • Suppress the multiplication of pathogenic bacteria.
  • Help to organize the work of the digestive system of the body.
  • Effectively removes cholesterol.
  • This is the most simple, natural and effective treatment and prevention of thyroid disease.
  • It increases the number of red blood cells, as a result, hemoglobin, thereby, improving the composition of human blood.
  • Beneficial effect on the nervous system, effectively helping to deal with stress.
  • Effective at high blood pressure.
  • Laminaria ranks first in the list of alkaline products.
  • Another area of ​​application of kelp cosmetology. Seaweed masks wraps кelp leaves contribute to a significant improvement in skin condition.

Laminaria (kombu) – the source of the whole complex of macro-and micronutrients:

– iodine, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, zinc, bromine, sulfur, phosphorus, nitrogen, cobalt, manganese, sodium, etc.),

– organic matter

– vitamins A, B1, B2, B12, C, D,

– plant fiber.

– kelp contains 23 amino acids (the main composition – aspartic, glutamine, folic, pantothenic and alanine).


  1. Laminaria ranks first in the list of alkaline products.

Its components differ depending on the type of algae, but it is about 16% water, 7% protein, 1.5% fat, 49% carbohydrates, 26.5% inorganic substances.  When inorganic components dissolve in water, their strength turns into a high-grade alkaline material.  Therefore, those who eat a lot of meat and processed foods, and whose blood is more prone to acidity, the use of kelp powder can immediately neutralize it.  After all, the healthy blood of a healthy organism is well maintained (maintained) in a weak alkaline environment.  This is why sea kelp is called “healthy food.”


  1. Rich in dietary fiber.

49% of algae components are carbohydrates, of which 20% are fibers (cellulose), and the rest are alginic acid.  The fact is that this alginic acid plays quite an important role.  It helps the intestinal peristalsis in the same way as the fiber of plants (peristaltic), and is also effective in preventing roughness of the skin, acne and blackheads.  That is why it is commonly called dietary fiber.  Alginic acid can help eliminate harmful elements from the body, such as salt, for example.  Being extremely low-calorie, algae contain rich nutrients.  When using laminaria kombu, there is a feeling of rapid filling of the stomach, as it increases in volume, absorbing moisture in the stomach.  We can say that this is the perfect diet food.


  1. Source of iodine

The kombu contains a lot of iodine (the most important element for the life of the thyroid gland).

For example, 100 g of dried kelp contains 180-380 mg of iodine, 95% of which can absorb and receive the body.  Since a person needs only about 0.2 mg per day, it is enough to eat only a little algae every day.

Iodine deficiency can cause disorder of the thyroid gland.  It is known that the thyroid gland is responsible for growth, energy production and metabolism in our body.


  1. The source of calcium

For the Japanese, calcium is one of the food ingredients that is in short supply and very difficult to replenish ..

Calcium deficiency causes osteoporosis.  It is said that the required amount of normal calcium is about 600 mg for adults.  This is 3 packets of milk.  Among the algae, the largest part of calcium is found in hosome kombu algae (1200 mg per 100 g).


  1. Lowering blood pressure

It is known that kelp contains a number of components, such as potassium, iodine, calcium, and vitamins A. In recent studies, special amino acids, called laminins, have been found there that lower blood pressure.  That is, it was once again proved that kelp kombu “is effective at high blood pressure.”  There is even a patent called “a method for producing an agent for treating high blood pressure from kelp and other algae”.  There is also a scientific work that just laminin from algae is responsible for the structural formula of this method.  Also noteworthy are the indirect effects of kelp kombu, such as preventing constipation, preventing blood oxidation and suppressing obesity.


  1. The source of beauty

It is already known that iodine is a component contained in large quantities in algae, which significantly affects the development of bone growth and cell metabolism.  During the growth phase, iodine deficiency occurs, in particular, in women.  It is said that the gloss of black hair and the skin of Japanese women are the best in the world.  This explains the connection with good thyroid function by secreting normal hormone.  A lot of iodine contained in algae serves as a good skin and acts on hormones.  In addition, the presence of minerals and vitamin, contribute to the production of enzyme and protein, and the abundance of iron improves skin color.  These nutrients give the effect of getting rid of wrinkles, moisturize and make the skin shiny.  No wonder the kelp kombu was highly regarded as an excellent cosmetic product.

Kombu seaweed (kelp) became the basis for the production of Kombutya drink (kombu powder tea).  The taste of “umami”, inherent in this kelp, gives the dishes a characteristic feature and originality, has a slightly salty taste with the aroma of the sea.

Kombutya (jap. 昆布 茶 tea from kombu) is a very familiar in the daily life of the Japanese seaweed drink in the form of 100% natural powder, which is also widely used as a convenient seasoning for various dishes of Japanese and European cuisine.  A rich source of iodine, amino acids, and dietary fiber.  Glutamic acid contained in a kombu, is an amplifier of the fifth taste “umami”.  This hidden taste gives the dishes a distinctive feature and originality. Combination is so rich in trace elements essential for the body that it is difficult to imagine whether there is a similar elixir that would provide the body with a wide range of essential substances for health.
