The benefits of kelp for PONS


  Kelp for PONS is a nutritious and rich source of minerals and vitamins. Adding kelp to your PON'S diet on a daily basis will help keep him happy and healthy.

Research has shown that kelp contains over 60 minerals and trace elements, 21 amino acids, simple and complex carbs and many essential plant growth hormones. Further, it is a rich,natural source of iodine, making it an excellent supplement to support a strong glandular system. Optimal metabolism is easier to achieve with properly functioning glands.

PONS with hypothyroidsim can benefit from the iodine in kelp because one of the functions of iodine is the stimulation of the thyroid gland. Online reports indicate that protein in kelp is extremely bio-available, which allows a PON'S system to efficiently assimilate its amino acids to effectively assist in tissue repair. The iodine in kelp stimulates the thyroid gland that controls a PON's metabolism and with better metabolism, PONS with weight issues can reduce cholesterol levels and more efficiently lose weight.


Flea control is also another benefit of kelp. An online study indicated that kelp could help control fleas. Canines were found to be less attractive to fleas and flies after three weeks of supplementation with kelp.


PONS on kelp supplements tend to enjoy better general health as a result of improved glandular activity. This may be particularly important for senior PONS who may have poor metabolism with glandular and compromised immune systems.
