Kelp biscuits

Natural Source of Iodine
Kelp protects against radiation poisoning due to its high iodine content. Iodine is also important for the thyroid, immune system, and female hormone regulation.
Thyroid Health
Iodine is essential to the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland. Kelp's high levels of iodine help to regulate thyroid hormones.
Estrogen-Related Cancer
It has long been known that Japanese women, whose diets are rich in kelp, have lower rates of ovarian, breast, and endometrial cancer. A study at UC Berkeley found that a diet containing kelp lowered serum estradiol levels in women and had phytoestrogenic properties.
Cancer Prevention The fucoidan in kelp has been shown in studies to have the ability to induce apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells.
One researcher found that women with endometriosis who supplemented with 700 mg of kelp capsules per day had a significant reduction in pain.
Kelp contains fucoidan, a complex carbohydrate that is a powerful anti-inflammatory.

Mix porridge oats with kelp herbs and garlic, bake on tray and break into biscuits, and your dog can share them too!
