Brown algae (Ascophyllum nodosum) is a perfect, natural source of iodine, a component indispensable for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland (it is contained in thyroxine and triiodothyronine). Brown algae are also beneficial for animals’ overall health condition in view of their high content of unsaturated fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, micro- and macronutrients. Regular administration of the algae effectively removes unpleasant odours, prevents a build-up of plaque on the teeth, remains instrumental in regulating the digestive processes, boosts natural immunity, and makes animal coats looking great throughout.
Did you know?
Brown algae may contain different concentrations of iodine, depending on the specific production methods and the actual selection of raw components. Alginates, which effectively act as the inhibitors in the process of absorption of certain heavy metals, highly toxic for a human body, are encountered in the seaweed cell walls.
