Sea Kelp & Iodine - A Very Personal Story

I wanted to share a personal story with you about how Sea Kelp (natural Iodine) made a real difference in my mum's life, and as a result, all of our lives too.

For many years, mum struggled with the debilitating symptoms of under-active thyroid. My once energetic mum that ran a small farm and a boat business in Devon with her husband, whilst raising 2 daughters, slowly changed. 

She experienced crippling fatigue, lack of motivation, brain fog, memory loss, thinning hair, prematurely aged skin, weight gain and feeling low in general. It was distressing to see her like this, and we all felt helpless not being able to do anything to change what she was dealing with.

Unfortunately, it was difficult to diagnose my mum's condition as the standard NHS test for thyroid function didn't pick up on what was causing her issues. She simply kept getting told there wasn't anything wrong and maybe she was depressed.

At this point in her life, she was probably also going through peri-menopause and those symptoms too, at a time where there was a lot less understanding around the impact of this than there is now. 

Mum has always been a strong advocate of natural remedies and finding alternative solutions. So, she began to explore the alternatives, and possible natural ways to support her during this challenging time.

That's when we discovered the amazing benefits of Sea Kelp and how the Iodine (as well as the other amazing nutrients in it) can be a huge support in thyroid health and thyroid function.

Sea Kelp is a natural and very abundant source of Iodine, a natural and essential nutrient which provides crucial support for our thyroid function and thyroid hormone production.

It also has approved health claims for supporting cognitive function (brain fog), contributing to energy-yielding metabolism, and helping with the normal functioning of your nervous system. Plus, it play a crucial role in the daily maintenance of normal healthy skin - an added bonus!

Before my mum was able to be diagnosed and receive the right treatment, Sea Kelp gave her as much natural support as possible, in nearly all areas of her struggle. It's amazing how something as humble as seaweed can make such a difference our daily lives!

What's even better is that we can source Sea Kelp totally organically and sustainably. It's totally natural and 100% vegan.

I hope our personal story inspires you to try Sea Kelp and experience its benefits for yourself. Thank you for being a part of our community, and we look forward to continuing to provide you with the very best natural and effective supplements.
