Kelp is a sea vegetable that has been consumed by Eastern countries for years, but is only now beginning to make its way onto the North American plate.  Research studies are proving just how valuable kelp is to our health.  For example, there is now conclusive evidence that Japanese woman, whose diets are rich in kelp, have lower rates of ovarian, endometrial and breast cancer.

Kelp ​​is a very sustainable plant.  It grows exceptionally fast at rates of 20 inches per day.  So when it is harvested just a few feet from the surface, it can grow back fully within 10 days.
