All seaweed is good,
but some is just better!

The nutritional properties of seaweed change depending on the species, harvest location and processing. The Hebridean Ascophyllum Seaweed that is core to our PureSea range is sustainably wild harvested from pristine Scottish waters to ensure high quality, and using our International Patent Pending techniques.
Independent analysis shows our seaweed is higher on key measures of quality in comparison to other leading brands.
PureSea is named this way as it is pure Scottish seaweed, harvested, dried and then milled. Nothing is added and nothing is taken away.

oUR SEAWEED IS A good Source of natural Iodine

In addition to all the other nutrients present in our seaweed, it is iodine that is key. PureSea seaweed can provides the sufficient RDA with just small inclusion to ensure your products can be a good source of iodine, a nutrient that contributes to normal:

Energy Yielding Metabolism

Normal Thyroid Function

Normal Cognitive Function

Maintenance of Normal Skin

Normal Growth of Children

Normal Functioning Nervous System

EFSA Approved Health Claims

The wide diversity of seaweed species means there is a wide diversity of iodine levels. It is essential to understand how much iodine is in your seaweed, and this is why we use specially selected species. Each batch, produced using our own Internationally Patent Pending technologies, is independently tested for iodine levels. Furthermore, we test every batch using unique DNA Authentication in independent accredited laboratories, so you know you are getting exactly what we say it is!

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 brain development during pregnancy and infancy.

Research indicates that our seaweed releases iodine more slowly, with longer retention in the body as compared to artificial sources (potassium iodide) often used in tablets and other supplementation.
This was demonstrated in independent clinical trials.

sEAWEED could address iodine insufficiencies

Recent research shows the UK is one of just two high-income countries with iodine deficiency issues, and has a worse rate than developing countries such as South Sudan. 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 clinical trials.

  • 66% of women have a diet insufficient in iodine
  • 76% of school-aged girls have a diet insufficient in iodine
  • 100% of our seaweed is measured for its iodine levels

We are passionate about the quality of our products and test every batch of our seaweed in independent UKAS accredited laboratories for iodine levels.
Our very own Dr Craig Rose contributed to research focusing on the different iodine contents between seaweed products.

We specifically select sustainable seaweed species that are well suited to providing a natural iodine source.
