Please be aware that if you're purchasing our dried botanicals for human use, our range is cut to appropriate sizes for feeding to horses.
We tend to feed seaweed/kelp to add a natural iodine source into our horse's feed. However ... apart from one known low-iodine area in the UK (Scotland), iodine generally doesn’t need to be supplemented.
There is also a very fine window of toxicity with iodine so we need to be mindful when feeding seaweed/kelp. When, and only when, iodine levels have tested low in soil and need supplementing, a horse needs only a maximum 2mg Iodine/day. 3g seaweed/kelp adds 1.5mg elemental iodine to the diet, so feed no more than 4g, which provides the required 2mg/day if deficient.
