Dulse, Rhodymenia palmata, is a red seaweed that grows on rocks at the low tide line in the North Atlantic and Northwest Pacific oceans where currents are strong and the bottom is clean. As a product of the ocean, they contain many of the numerous elements that the ocean contains. These elements include: Iodine, bromine, alginic acid, alginates, and other organic salts, especially sodium alginate.
The liquid extract of this plant provides several essential minerals, protein and trace elements that help support thyroid gland function. It provides a natural source of iodine, an essential trace mineral that is needed by the thyroid gland to maintain proper metabolism. Iodine also helps the body regulate temperature, blood cell production, muscle and nerve function and more. Seaweeds are considered to be thyroid stimulators and gland balancers helping to regulate metabolism.
With this rich supply of nutrients from the sea, Dulse has the buffering ability to neutralize wastes from body fluids and more easily discharge them from the body. It also aids cleansing since it can bind radioactive strontium, barium, and cadmium in the gastrointestinal tract preventing their absorption into the body. Seaweeds may reduce the risk of poisoning from environmental pollution by providing fiber that increases fecal bulk and also reduces cholesterol levels through the retardation of bile acid absorption.
Liquid Dulse can help to soothe an irritated throat and mucous membranes. It has been used for enlarged thyroid and lymph nodes, swollen and painful testes and to reduce edema. All of these things can be caused by a malfunction of the thyroid gland.
Dulse has elements to eliminate excess uric acid from the system and has been used for uro-genital problems such as kidney, bladder, prostrate, and uterus. Clinical documentation shows that taking some each day can reduce enlarged prostrates in older men and urination can become painless.
