    None,

    they are a waste of money, just another vitamin store ripoff. It's like eating salad tablets instead of salad...

    If one wants to eat seaweed, it's available in many Oriental markets and makes a nice addition to soups.

    I agree with Lenin on this. I would eat the seaweed salad they have in Japanese restaurants. The stuff is awesome with a sesame dressing. Also Nori that goes around sushi rolls are great..Lisa

    Re: kelp

    Kelp does contain Iodine which is needed by the thyroid.Since your trying to boost it you also might want to try L-Tyrosine on an empty stomach.Iodine and Tyrosine combine to help produce thyroxine T-4. harry !

    Kelp does work. It is not a ripoff. Do not take it if you are on thyroid medicine or if you have an overactive thyroid in general.
