Kelp and Macadamia Smoothie – Iodine Enriched

What is Iodine? And why we need it: A mineral that’s vital for the production of the thyroid hormone which is then responsible for a number of highly important functions in the body such as metabolism, healthy cell reproduction, healthy cell growth, regulation of body temp.

Kelp itself is an amazing superfood right from the bottom of the ocean which is rich in Iodine and many other natural nutrients and minerals.

Kelp is well-known for healing the body as well as restoring balance to PH levels (acid-base balance). It also contains 16 amino acids which makes it an almost complete protein, its rich in chlorophyll which means it stimulates healthy red blood cell production, protects the cells from radiation exposure and strengthens bones due to high levels of calcium and manganese.

With it being in powder form, its easy to add to smoothies to maximise nutrient and mineral intake, giving the body every ounce of health that it deserves.
