Kelp tape is a seaweed used for cleansing the colon of toxins and as an aid in losing weight. The laxative-like substance removes harmful toxins that accumulate in the body over time, including artificial flavors and colors, MSG, salt and pesticides.
According PositiveHealthOnline, kelp or seaweed is a brown algae that assists in maintaining the acid-alkaline balance in the digestive tract. The seaweed also has a probiotic impact on the flora in the stomach and assists in protecting the stomach's lining.
Not only does kelp stimulate enzymes in the digestive tract, it also aids in absorbing key nutrients, thereby strengthening the immune system and speeding up the metabolic rate. When the metabolic rate is increased, calories are burned faster and more efficiently.
Jonathan Tommey, a clinical nutritionist, says that kelp is able to effectively remove toxic metals, aid in the regulation of fatty acids and maintain a healthy electrolyte balance. Nutritionists have also discovered that kelp restores the moisture in dry skin and enhances the circulation.
