Nature’s Power Nutraceuticals Corp. (NP Nutra), a California-based global manufacturer of superior nutraceutical ingredients, just released its organic Kelp powder, the newest and exciting addition to the company’s continuously growing line of super products.
Sourced from lush kelp forests thriving in pristine and cool waters near Canadian shores and specially processed in NP Nutra facilities, NP Nutra’s Kelp powder comes with all the superior nutrition from this miracle “plant” from the sea. Kelp powder’s distinct flavor also makes it a delightful addition to broths, stews, Asian dishes and even smoothies.
Kelp, which is a large brown algae or seaweed, has a long history of therapeutic use in traditional Chinese medicine and has long been placed in high regard for its high vitamin and mineral content by naturopaths and herbalists. “Kelp’s medicinal value is beyond question and so is its high-nutritive value. That is why NP Nutra wants to make this outstanding product available to our growing list of clients,” said Marina Linsley, NP Nutra’s marketing director.
Kelp can rightfully be called a superfood. Aside from iodine, kelp is loaded with health-enhancing minerals and vitamins. This potent seaweed contains some 30 different minerals including calcium, sulfur, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium and magnesium. It also contains vital vitamins A, B complex, D, E and K. This nutrition-packed algae has ample amounts of protein, carbohydrates and essential fatty acids.
Commonly known for effectively aiding thyroid function because of its high iodine content, Kelp can also contribute to regulating other important body functions including digestion and metabolism, thereby making it a helpful aid in weight management.
