Ethically and sustainably wild-harvested by a small company, this Bladderwrack Seaweed from the northern Atlantic U.S. coast is a nutrient-dense, common brown algae. It’s low-fat and high in Iodine, fiber, vitamins, and minerals; has macro- and micro-nutrients, and is a functional food in several Asian and European countries, and Alaska. It is also used for thyroid health and weight-loss, and has many well-researched and documented therapeutic uses.
Bladderwrack, f. vesiculosus, is also known as red/bladder fucus, rockweed, cutweed, black tang, and confusingly, Atlantic kelp. It is eaten as food in many places in the world, and used as medicine in some as well. It has been studied scientifically as well; According to Marcelo D. Catarino, Artur M. S. Silva, and Susana M. Cardoso, it’s used in the “treatment of cellulite, blood clot formations, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, psoriasis and skin diseases, cancer and other oxidative and inflammatory related conditions” as well in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and food.
