Therefore, as a powerful source of iodine, bladderwrack has become associated with treating many types of thyroid disorders, including goiter.
2.May Aid In Weight Loss

One of the other popular uses of bladderwrack over the years has been as an anti-inflammatory substance due to its active constituents – fucoidans 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.
