Kelp tape is made from kelp, a type of seaweed. It is used to clean the colon of toxins and help people lose weight. The laxative-like substance gets rid of harmful toxins, like artificial flavours and colours, MSG, salt, and pesticides, that build up in the body over time.
PositiveHealthOnline says that kelp or seaweed is a brown algae that helps keep the right balance of acid and alkaline in the digestive tract. The seaweed also has a probiotic effect on the gut flora and helps protect the lining of the stomach.
Kelp not only makes enzymes in the digestive tract work better, but it also helps the body absorb key nutrients. This boosts the immune system and speeds up the metabolism. When the metabolic rate goes up, calories are burned more quickly and effectively.
A clinical nutritionist named Jonathan Tommey says that kelp can effectively get rid of toxic metals, help regulate fatty acids, and keep a healthy electrolyte balance. Nutritionists have also found that kelp brings moisture back to dry skin and improves blood flow.
