As odd as this word may sound, you're about to go crazy for it. Bladderwrack is actually one of the most common types of seaweed found in the ocean and is the first source of iodine. It's a form of kelp that has been used medicinally for centuries and is mostly heard about with sea moss in Dr. Sebi's compounds!
The main use of the herb has been for the high iodine content that stimulates the thyroid gland as a treatment for obesity and cellulite. Dr. Sebi also blended the powder with sea moss powder in making tooth paste, body masks and supplements to put in smoothies for the benefits of all 102 minerals.
Used internally and as an external application for inflamed joints. The main phytotherapeutic use of Fucus is during times of enduring an illness, recovery from an illness, and also to remineralize the body.
The most impressive health benefits of bladderwrack include its ability to reduce inflammation, regenerate skin cells, strengthen bones, boost circulation, aid vision, and prevent premature aging.
It's also used for joint pain, “hardening of the arteries” (arteriosclerosis), digestive disorders, heartburn, “blood cleansing,” constipation, bronchitis, emphysema, urinary tract disorders, and anxiety. It's also used to boost the immune system and increase energy.
The clarity and energy I have when I use bladderwrack is unmatched. I just feel good in every part. I consume bladderwrack in my smoothies daily as a powder and consume it as a tea every other day. Just a routine that works best for me.
Let's vibe deeper as I go more in depth with my TOP 5 on why I love taking this herb, especially mixed with sea moss.
TOP 5 DIVINE BENEFITS OF BLADDERWRACK
Bladderwrack was the original source of iodine back in the 19th century. Iodine is such an important and vital modulator of our thyroid gland and can ensure that our hormonal and metabolic levels are under control. So, as a powerful source of iodine, bladderwrack is associated with treating many types of thyroid disorders. Ultimately, bladderwrack stimulates the thyroid gland to increase hormonal balance.
2. WEIGHT LOSS
I'm not particularly interested in losing anymore weight, lol! But when I start gaining a little fat somewhere I'm like, "Up! Nope, I'm drinking some bladderwrack and sea moss to get me right." Bladderwrack heightens the metabolism, which makes it easier to lose weight, resinating and giving space for our body to flow naturally. When your body is working at a high energy level and burning off what's not conducive to it, aka fat, you also suppress appetite, which is perfect for those wanting to start a clean slate and lose some weight.
Whether you're suffering from arthritis, hemorrhoids, skin irritation, back pain, and even inflammation within the body in general, bladderwrack can successfully neutralize the irritation, reduce swelling, and relieve pain. Using it both externally and internally is perfect and are even better together.
Bladderwrack can help lower blood pressure, reduce your risk of strokes and heart attacks, and generally lessen the strain on your cardiovascular system.
Fucoidan is a unique type of fiber that is found in high quantities within bladderwrack. Research has connected fucoidan with many health benefits, including lowering cholesterol, reducing blood sugar levels, and having anti-tumor effects. Essentially, one of the functions of fucoidan is to regulate a substance necessary for cell reproduction and growth. By slowing down that cell growth process, cancer proliferation can be reduced. 
As I always say, everything is for everything, in the end. Bladderwrack serves in many more ways than can be explained but you're catching the vibes. It truly is a divine source to electrify our bodies and regain connection to our self.
If you suffer from hyperthyroidism, then you may not need an extra boost of iodine. Also, some people are allergic to iodine, so large amounts of bladderwrack could be very dangerous. If you're having surgery in the near future or suffer from a bleeding disorder, you should avoid bladderwrack, as it can make blood clotting more difficult. Check with your holistic doctor before adding this herbal remedy into your health regimen.
