Glasgow, UK (PRWEB UK) 17 July 2014 -- The media has been talking quite a lot lately about how seaweed supplements can turn women’s life upside down!

Glasgow University Study: The study was based on 42 women aged 25. They were given seaweed supplement capsules over a period of 2 weeks.
Before the trial, iodine consumption was far lower than the daily minimum recommended intake of 140 micrograms (mcg), while more than half of the group were found to be iodine insufficient.
At the end of the trial, the group with low iodine levels showed a significant rise from 93 mg of chemical present in their systems to each day to 262 mcg per day.
The report said: "Iodine-insufficiency is now a sustained issue in the UK and other European countries, due to low intakes of dairy and seafood, especially where iodine fortification is not in place.
"The seaweed was an effective source of iodine among people with insufficient levels prior to the study." source: British Journal of nutrition, 23 May 2014. Study can be viewed by clicking here.
