The nutrition in our Organic Raw Sushi Nori lies in its high protein content as well as vitamins and mineral salts, especially iodine. Nori is rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals. And when compared with plants that grow on land, seaweed or sea vegetables from the ocean, are 20 times more nutrient-dense. The Vitamin C content is about 1.5 times that of oranges and 75% of the protein and carbohydrates are digestible by humans which is very high for seaweeds. It's great for sushi, but also makes a good snack just by itself.

Raw Organic Sushi Nori is a seaweed and a great natural source of Iodine / Potassium iodide (KI). Iodine is a chemical element essential for the production of thyroid hormones that regulate growth and metabolism. Diets deficient in iodine increase risk of retarded brain development in children (cretinism), mental slowness, high cholesterol, lethargy, fatigue, depression, weight gain, and goiter: a swelling of the thyroid gland in the neck. The natural Potassium iodide (KI) / Iodine from Sushi Nori is absorbed by your body more slowly and safely than chemical or synthetic iodine. Further Sushi Nori helps promote an alkaline pH balance within the body and also boosts the immune system.

Iodine / Potassium iodide (KI), administered orally immediately after exposure to certain types of radiation, may be used to protect the thyroid from ingested radioactive iodine. But Potassium iodide (KI) would only be effective if the radiation contains radioactive iodine.
