As a marine biologist and wild-seaweed harvester, I am passionate about bringing all the wonderful benefits of seaweed into your life, in a way that you’ll love. My vision is to see everyone able to enjoy and benefit from seaweed in their life.
There’s nothing weird about seaweed – it’s wonderful!
Bursting with Pure Sea Health
Doctor Seaweed’s Weed & Wonderful capsules are an extremely easy way to incorporate seaweed into your everyday life and gain from its many health benefits. With broader nutrition than land-plants, seaweed contains a huge range of minerals, trace elements, vitamin groups, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Seaweed can be a great addition to a varied diet and healthy lifestyle.
A Forgotten Food
Around 2.5 million years ago there was a transition from primitive to modern Homo sapiens. Research shows that at this time our ancestors moved to coastal environments and started eating seaweed. The nutrients that were (and still are!) in seaweed allowed for the evolution of the human brain. Seaweed’s natural rich iodine source, which is essential for brain development, was a crucial part of this story.
We are leading numerous research projects with university partners in the UK to further the understanding of seaweed’s many health benefits. Ongoing scientific studies are showing that our seaweed has potential for…
Harvested in Pristine Scottish Sea Lochs
Our Organic Hebridean Ascophyllum Seaweed is sustainably wild harvested around the remote islands of the Scottish Outer Hebrides. These pristine waters are carefully monitored and managed, with exclusive harvesting rights from the Crown Estate. Our seaweed is carefully dried and milled using our Patent Pending technologies. This ensures high quality, nutrient rich, and fully traceable products from sea to store.
Nothing But Pure Seaweed
Each Organic vegan capsule shell contains our Organic Hebridean Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed powder, and nothing else!

The Importance of Iodine
Seaweed is naturally rich in iodine, an essential mineral that the body needs to make thyroid hormones. These hormones control the body’s metabolism and many other important functions. The body also needs thyroid hormones for the brain development of babies during pregnancy and infancy. Recent research shows the UK is one of just two high-income countries with iodine deficiency issues, and has a worse rate than some developing countries.
Our Seaweed is a Wonderful Source of Iodine
In addition to all the other nutrients present in our seaweed, iodine is the key one. Our Weed & Wonderful capsules can provide for all your daily iodine needs. Iodine is a nutrient that contributes to normal:
- Energy Yielding Metabolism
- Thyroid health
- Cognitive Function
- Maintenance of Skin
- Growth of Children
- Functioning Nervous System
Our seaweed releases iodine more slowly, with longer retention in the body as compared to artificial sources (potassium iodide) often used in other supplementation. This was demonstrated in independent research trials.
The wide diversity of seaweed species means there is a wide diversity of iodine levels. It is essential to understand how much iodine you are getting, and this is why we use one specially selected species. Each batch, produced in our own Patent Pending technologies, is tested for iodine levels.
We also test every batch using unique DNA Authentication in independent accredited laboratories, so you know you are getting exactly what we say it is!
