What is Kelp?
Grown in "underwater forests" of shallow oceans, kelp is a type of brown algae seaweed. One of the oldest and most powerful superfoods, kelp is famous for it's naturally occurring, non-radioactive iodine content. Iodine is critical for every function of the immune system but is particularly important for thyroid health, endocrine & metabolic function. With over 60 bio-active compounds, kelp is excellent for filling in micronutrient deficiencies. Kelp offers a complex array of bioavailable minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients & antioxidants which are all important for optimal overall whole body health. We are proud to offer kelp which is entirely natural, sustainably harvested from the cleanest kelp beds on earth & dried at controlled low temperatures using geothermal energy. This carefully selected kelp is the most nutrient‐dense kelp available, containing one‐third less moisture and 30% more iodine.

Kelp is a natural alternative to EDDI (Ethylenediamine dihydriodide) which is commonly used in feeds & supplements on the market today as a source of iodine. EDDI is a radioactive, synthetic form of iodine flagged with warnings on PubChem as harmful if swallowed, may cause skin corrosion / irritation, respiratory tract irritation, organ toxicity & acute toxicity. 

A word regarding the naturally occurring iron content in kelp: per serving (1 tbsp) of our kelp, there is approximately 8.8 mg of iron. Relative to the approximate 1,796 mg of iron the average horse receives from their daily hay ration (@ 20 lbs/day), the addition of 8.8 mg of iron is minimal. However, we highly recommend our Hay Harmony™ feed topper for nearly every horse to help metabolize the iron they’re receiving each day.
