Wholistic Sea Kelp is pure kelp that is harvested and processed in Northwest Iceland, one of the most pristine environments found worldwide and is certified organic by QAI and TUN. Wholistic Sea Kelp is a type of sea vegetation that has existed in the earth’s oceans longer than any other known form of vegetation. Contrary to popular myth, all kelps are not the same. Kelp is only as good as the area in which it is obtained and how it is processed. Because kelp’s chief purpose is to supply minerals, kelp must be obtained from mineral-rich waters that are clean and free from pollutants and heavy metal contamination. Wholistic Sea Kelp is certified organic based upon its Arctic environment and also upon its processing techniques that maintain its unusually high concentrations of minerals. Wholistic Sea Kelp is especially rich in the mineral iodine, necessary for proper support of the thyroid gland. Superb for enriching pigmentation. Wholistic Sea Kelp offers the broadest range of minerals of any food.
