Bladderwrack, iodine rich seaweed , is used for thyroid problems, obesity, joint pain, constipation, and skincare. Dietary bladderwrack is available most commonly as an herbal supplement, capsules, or powder. Bladderwrack powder is also mixed into water or facial scrubs for skin-related benefits to improve its efficacy.

May Aid In Weight Loss

In many cultures, Bladderwrack is thought to heighten metabolism, which makes it easier to lose weight. Many weight loss supplements do contain Bladderwrack in combination with other herbs, because of its effect on the workings of the thyroid gland. There is no clinical evidence to suggest that these drugs help in weight loss or metabolism management.  

Reduced Inflammation

One of the other popular uses of bladderwrack over the years has been as an anti-inflammatory substance due to its active constituents – fucoidans [6] and fucoxanthin. Whether you are suffering from gout, arthritis, hemorrhoids, or skin irritation, bladderwrack may successfully neutralize the irritation, reduce swelling, and even relieve pain. The internal and external (topical) uses of bladderwrack may both be useful approaches and are even better in conjunction, such as for sore muscles and joints. One 12-week study showed that isolated fucoidans from brown marine algae including bladderwrack helped reduce arthritis stiffness and pain. However, better human clinical trials are needed to support this use. 

Anticancer Potential

Fucoidan is a unique type of fiber found in high quantities in bladderwrack. Research suggests that fucoidan has many beneficial properties that include antiviral, antitumor, anticoagulant, antiangiogenic, and antiarthritic properties. 

According to a report by researchers from the University of Tasmania, Australia fucoidan has anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties and may induce apoptosis. However, more clinical trials are required to support the anticarcinogenic effects. [11]

Improved Digestion

There are several different types of fiber found in bladderwrack, but one particularly important one is alginic acid. Alginic acid relieves constipation and adds bulk to stool, promoting a smooth digestive process that is efficient in terms of nutrient uptake. Bladderwrack steeped in hot water with ginger, or bladderwrack tea is often used to relieve excess flatulence, bloating, cramping, and more serious conditions like gastric ulcers and Colon Cancer.

May Boost Heart Health

Research studies have linked bladderwrack with higher levels of HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol), which may contribute to helping you prevent altherocslerosis, lowering blood pressurereducing your risk of strokes and heart attacks, and generally lessen the strain on your cardiovascular system. 

Anti-aging Properties

There are many valuable minerals found in bladderwrack that can help to make the skin beautiful, but there are also powerful organic chemicals that can slow down the aging process. These antioxidants in bladderwrack keep the skin looking healthy and young, reduce AGE SPOTS and blemishes, and lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Antioxidants can also boost skin elasticity, keeping your skin looking tight and toned well into your old age. 

Menstrual Cycle Regularity in Premenopausal Women

Dietary Bladderwrack may help increase the duration of the menstrual cycle in premenopausal women and may also help reduce the RISK OF CANCER related to estrogen. A preliminary clinical trial looked at the effect of the seaweed on three premenopausal women with irregular menstrual cycle patterns. They found that it helped prolong the menstrual cycle and exerted an anti-estrogenic effect on the women, which may help reduce the risk of estrogen-related cancers. However, a study with a larger sample size may help understand this therapeutic benefit better. [17]

Other Benefits

Certain active compounds present in bladderwrack are being studied for their possible health benefits. Fucoidan is being studied as a potential therapy against age-related macular degeneration. CALCIUM alginate in alginic acid may assist in WOUND healing. Alginic acid has also shown to have an inhibitory effect on the HIV virus in a test tube study.
