Bladderwrack, scientifically known as Fucus vesiculosus, is a brown seaweed that grows in the cool waters of the Baltic, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It is one of the highest iodine containing sea vegetables known in the world. Due to this, it has been used traditionally for thyroid disorders including an oversized thyroid (goiter) and an underactive thyroid (myxedema). Additionally, it is the first plant turned to as a source of iodine and was already used in Western Medicine around 100 years ago to treat goiter. Alongside healing the body from iodine deficiency, Bladderwrack is also used for joint pain, digestive disorders, constipation, bronchitis, obesity, arthritis, hardening of the arteries and anxiety. The high amount of fucoidan found in Bladderwrack creates a healthy inflammatory response within the body, supports healthy intestinal flora and keeps your immune system strong. Similar to Irish Moss, Bladderwrack is also loaded with life-enhancing minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Many people believe that Bladderwrack holds the last of the 102 minerals found in the human body, making it the perfect match with Irish Moss.
