Bladderwrack is a type of brown seaweed that’s tied to traditional medicine. Growing up to 35 inches (90 cm) tall, bladderwrack grows along the coastlines of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, the North and Baltic Seas, and various waters in Canada and the United States. Traditional medicinal practices have used it for centuries to treat an array of conditions, such as iodine deficiency, obesity, joint pain, aging skin, digestive issues, urinary tract infection, and thyroid dysfunction, including hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and goiter development. Bladderwrack is also rich in iodine and antioxidants.
Bladderwrack can be added to soups, stocks, and broths, or it can even be steeped as tea.
