Seaweed Supplements are a natural good source of iodine. The body requires iodine for normal thyroid function, energy metabolism, cognitive and nerve function, and skin. It is particularly important for normal growth in children. The UK is one of the most iodine-deficient countries in the world, with teenage girls at particular risk. Vegans are also at risk of severe iodine deficiency.
Seaweed capsules are a fantastic way to include seaweed into the diet, so the body can benefit from its varied range of micronutrients.

The thyroid gland is known as the center of our body's metabolism. It produces various hormones, particularly Thyroxine (T3) which requires adequate iodine in the diet to synthesize.
An underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) is the most common thyroid problem and may happen when our bodies do not produce enough thyroxine to meet our needs. Hypothyroidism symptoms can include:
- Tiredness and fatigue
- Weight gain
- Concentration issues
- Feeling cold
Hypothyroidism can occur if we don't have enough iodine in our diets as it's an essential part of thyroxine production. Most people need additional iodine as it's relatively difficult to get from the diet.
Doctor Seaweed recommends 1 to 2 seaweed capsules per day with food, or as directed by a practitioner stated dose.
Doctor Seaweed's Seaweed supplements are also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Iodine can be harmful if taken in excess. Those on medication should consult a doctor before taking any seaweed supplements.
