    Re: kelp tablets

    Kelp contains high sodium and should be avoided by those with hypertension and other ailments where a sodium restriction applies.

    Kelp may cause hyper- or hypothyroidism and interfer with treatment being given for abnormal thyroid.

    Many years ago I went to a health food store to check on kelp thinking it might be good to take. A customer was in the store and said she took a handful of kelp pills every day as well as many other pills. I took one look at her, frail, drawn, sickly looking and decided if that is what kelp does to a person I wanted no part of it!!
