Bladderwrack is a type of brown algae that is rich in iodine. Due to its iodine content, bladderwrack has long been used in the treatment of hypothyroidism and other thyroid-related conditions, although it seems that high profile human trials have yet to confirm this. While iodine's influence on the thyroid is a certainty, the varying iodine content of bladderwrack means standardization and carefully controlled trials are necessary. What has been confirmed has been within the context of test tube and animal studies and the results are extremely promising. In addition to iodine, powerful components within bladderwrack have shown exciting results that include anti-viral properties. The prominent Dr. Andrew Weil reported recently that scientists at the NCI are now investigating the immunity properties of seaweeds.
