Five Reasons Mother’s love Kelp Jerky

Published by Eve Palmer,

Being a mother is no small feat! Keeping yourself fueled is of utmost importance while balancing so many duties around the home. One reason we created Kelp Jerky is because we’re aware that so many snacks out there are packed with added sugar and preservative and our goal was to make a superfood snack that would leave you full and filled with all of your key vitamins and nutrients! Here are a few reasons mothers love Kelp Jerky:

1) Alkalinity:

Kelp contains several alkaline buffering nutrients such as Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium.

2) Vanadium: ​

Vanadium is a naturally occurring trace mineral in Kelp that works to balance your body's blood sugar and handle stress more effectively.

3) Fucoidan:

Found in brown macroalgae like Kelp, a Fucoidan is a complex polysaccharide that helps support the immune system -- from stopping viruses from replicating to supporting blood flow.

4) Iodine:

Kelp is a natural source of Iodine, an essential mineral that up to a third of humans worldwide are at risk of being deficient in! Iodine supports a healthy thyroid system and your body's metabolism.

5) Fucoxanthin:

Fucoxanthin is a brown carotenoid pigment that's found in brown macroalgaes like Kelp. Scientists are currently studying it for its ability to support metabolism and fat-burning. 


There's no mother more important or giving than our Mother Earth, which is another one of the reasons we created Kelp Jerky - a sustainable snack made from 100% regeneratively farmed ocean-kelp that when planted helps to reverse climate change by filtering 5-30x more harmful carbon and nitrogen from the sea than land-based plants do from the air. 💙​

So, whether its taking care of busy mothers or taking care of Mother Earth, Kelp Jerky is a purpose-driven snack with no greater desire than to leave this planet a tad healthier than when we started!
