Product Details

One ounce, cut and sifted. Certified 100% USDA Organic & Kosher

Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus) has a rich history. Prized for its iodine content, bladderwrack was the original source of iodine isolated in 1811. This discovery led to its widespread use in treating goiter, a swelling of the thyroid gland caused by iodine deficiency. Bladderwrack grows in abundance along the rocky shores of the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, where it has been collected for centuries as a natural remedy. Bladderwrack's properties extend beyond iodine. It contains fucoidan, a complex sugar molecule with potential health benefits. Studies suggest fucoidan may act as an antioxidant and offer anti-inflammatory effects. Historically, Bladderwrack has also been used for conditions like obesity, constipation, and aging skin, though scientific evidence for these applications is limited. It's important to note that bladderwrack can interfere with thyroid hormone medication, so consult your healthcare professional before use.

Bladderwrack’s association with the sea and its bladder-like floats have led to its use in rituals for wealth, protection, purification & safe travel. Bladderwrack is also burned as incense for cleansing or carried as a charm to ward off negativity. Bladderwrack's historical and medicinal significance continue to make it a fascinating part of our relationship with the ocean's bounty.
