This herb is a seaweed that is almost black in color, with ribbons or thalli that are knobby at the joints. It was used in the past as a remedy for swelling of the thyroid from lack of iodine, and in the 18th century, it was major source of iodine.

Bladderwrack stimulates the thyroid and gives your metabolism a gentle kick, for more efficient function and that’s one needs in losing weight.

In addition, bladderwrack is rich in minerals and is antirheumatic. The thalli can be used like a dried herb to brew into a healing tea, but you don’t need much, it’s sea- salty!

CAUTION: Avoid bladderwrack is one is being treated for a thyroid condition.

Here is a simple recipe for making bladderwrack tea:

Gently simmer a handful of focus (bladderwrack) for 15 minutes in enough water to cover. Season to taste as needed.
