What is Bladderwrack? (Fucus vesiculosus or Fucus Edentata) Bladderwrack is a sea vegetable that is believed to contain the highest levels of iodine known to man. This naturally-occurring source of iodine which is so highly valued in the herbal industry can help support a healthy functioning thyroid gland, and this action was first recognized in 1811. Iodine is noted by many great herbalists as one of the most crucial nutrients for a healthy thyroid. Scientifically without sufficient levels of iodine, the body can't make thyroid hormones primarily responsible for the regulation of metabolism. Makes sense? Bladderwrack is most commonly blended into a tincture, a drink, and or used in baths as well to provide a relaxing and soothing alkaline bath. This wonderful sea vegetable is a super product of the world. A must-have in everyone’s home!
Bladderwrack contains alginic acid, a kind of dietary fiber. Fiber helps with constipation, but it can also relieve diarrhea and keep your bowel movements more regular in general.
Bladderwrack is a demulcent herb, meaning it seems to work by decreasing inflammation and forming a barrier against irritants such as stomach acid. Demulcents herbs may be used to treat indigestion and heartburn.
Fucus vesiculosus might slow blood clotting. Taking Fucus vesiculosus along with medications that also slow blood clotting might increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.
