Natural Factors Fresh Kelp Extract is a natural source of iodine that the body needs to make thyroid hormones. It is hand harvested in a sustainable manner from the pristine coastal waters of British Columbia. A precision extraction process preserves freshness and kelp’s spectrum of minerals, vitamins, and iodine.
Kelp is a sea vegetable and a naturally concentrated source of iodine. It is rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium, as well as many trace elements, vitamins, and lignans. Iodine is an essential nutrient needed for proper thyroid gland function and making thyroid-stimulating hormone.

Pregnancy and lactation: Kelp is a good source of the iodine that is essential for brain development in the fetus or infant.
