I’m looking for some form of powder that i can begin including in my diet. Some type of powder with lots of antioxidants. Would kelp count? Or would chlorella be better?
Or anything else? Thanks
Oh i heard kelp is good for your skin somehow. I didn’t know you can only use it for a certain amount of time.
Kelp is a good source of Iodine and has some Chlorophyll… but it is nowhere near the level of “superfood”. If you ate too much Kelp, you could get Iodine poisoning (an overdose of Iodine) and you wouldn’t get enough of any other nutrients to make it worth it. There is a tiny Chlorophyll in it, but if that’s what you’re looking for, I would just take some Alfalfa instead because that is one of the most abundant sources.
Chlorella would be a much superior superfood than Kelp for sure… it also has much safer levels of the various vitamins and minerals. Good luck and I hope I helped!
: In regards to another answer… yes, you CAN overdose on Kelp powder. Iodine is a mineral that can build up to toxic levels and people have been hospitalized for too much of it in their system (although the high blood pressure from Iodized salt is usually a larger issue). Too much of anything can be bad for you, even water.
