About the organic Seagreens® food-approved seaweed

Ascophyllum nodosum 
This is a large, common brown alga (Phaeophyceae) in the family Fucaceae, being the only species in the genusAscophyllum. It is seaweed of the northern Atlantic Ocean, and is also known as rockweed, Norwegian kelp, knotted kelp, knotted wrack or egg wrack. It is common on the north-western coast of Europe (from Svalbard to Portugal) including east Greenland and the north-eastern coast of North America. Seagreens® Ascophyllum nodosum is sourced from the Scottish Outer Hebrides and is the highest of Seagreens’® species in terms of iodine levels – typically 700mcg iodine per 1g.

Ascophyllum nodosum contains both macro-nutrients (e.g. nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur) and micro-nutrients (e.g. manganese, copper, iron, zinc etc). It is also a source of cytokinins, auxin-like gibberellins, betaines, mannitol, organic acids, polysaccharides, amino acids and proteins.

Fucus vesiculosus 
Known by the common name bladder wrack or bladderwrack, Fucus vesiculosus is a seaweed found on the coasts of the North Sea, the western Baltic Sea and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It also known by the common names black tang, rockweed, bladder fucus, sea oak, black tany, cut weed, dyers fucus, red fucus and rock wrack.

It contains mucilage, algin, mannitol, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, bromine, potassium, volatile oils, iodine and other minerals. It was actually the original source of iodine, discovered in 1811.

Overall, seaweeds form an essential source of natural iodine and are described as an ideal food-safe natural source of this important mineral.

Iodine in seaweeds

Iodine in seaweeds contributes to:

  • the normal growth of children
  • normal cognitive function
  • normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • normal functioning of the nervous system
  • the maintenance of normal skin
  • the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function.

The iodine also has the added benefit of being sourced from seaweed that naturally contains all of the other minerals and micronutrients needed for its proper transport and metabolism (including selenium, tyrosine, zinc, copper, vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and C).

As most iodine is from dairy and meat, this is ideal for vegan, vegetarian, allergy and intolerance diets.

About the other sea ingredients

Spirulina 
Spirulina is a blue-green microalgae. It contains between 55 and 70% protein, 8 essential and 10 non-essential amino acids, as well as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), beta-carotene, linoleic acid, arachidonic acid, vitamin K, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, iron, copper, manganese, nucleic acids RNA and DNA, chlorophyll and phycocyanin (a pigment-protein complex that is found only in blue-green algae).

Chlorella 
An edible, single-cell marine algae (a sea-moss or sea lettuce), chlorella contains chlorophyll, vitamin B12, beta-carotene, polyunsaturated fatty acids and 19 amino acids (including the 8 essential amino acids). It is also a source of calcium, iron, selenium and zinc.

About the soil ingredients

Artichoke
Two of the phtyonutrients found in artichoke (the close botanical cousin of the herb milk thistle) are cynarin and silymarin. Artichokes also contain dietary fibre, potassium, vitamin C, folate and magnesium.

Green tea
Camellia thea, or green tea, is a source of catechin polyphenols – Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), in particular.

Ashwagandha root
Belonging to the same family as the tomato, ashwagandha is a plump shrub with oval leaves and yellow flowers. It bears red fruit about the size of a raisin. The herb is native to the dry regions of India, northern Africa, and the Middle East, and today is also grown in more mild climates, including the United States.

Cayenne
Fiercely hot and pungent, cayenne, also known as cayenne pepper, is one of the most widely used spice ingredients for culinary purposes. Cayenne fruits are slender, elongated pods derived from the capsicum family plant (a cultivar of Capsicum annuum related to bell peppers, jalapeños, paprika, and others). Cayenne contains vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium and manganese. It is also a source of capsaicin.

Parcel sizes: most orders will NOT fit through a letter box slot.

Delivery times

Royal Mail
For UK orders, Royal Mail states that 1st class Mail is delivered between 1 and 2 business days and 2nd class Mail (including 2nd class Recorded Delivery) is delivered within 5 – 10 business days (see the Royal Mail website for full details).
Delivery to destinations outside the UK vary from 10 to 19 business days. Please see the Royal Mail website for details. Parcels may also be held up by customs.

Courier
If we decide to ship your UK order by courier (Interlink) because of its weight or value, you will receive a notification email and then a text message approximately 1 hour prior to delivery (if you provided the correct email address and mobile phone number). Delivery by courier normally takes place the next day.

Please note: We post orders as quickly as possible. However, the delivery times mentioned above are NOT guaranteed – they are just approximate times provided by the mail carriers. Once we pass an item to a mail delivery service company, we cannot control delays and delivery times. Whilst we are sorry for any inconvenience caused by delivery delays, we cannot take any responsibility for them – though we will, of course, do everything we can to help you get your order in the quickest possible time.

Order status

You will receive two emails after you have placed your order and provided us with a valid email address:

  1. The first confirms that your order has been received and will contain your receipt; this email should arrive within approximately 24 hours.
  2. The second confirms that your order has been posted; this email should arrive within approximately 1 business day following authorisation of your credit card and verification of your information.
  3. If you do not receive our emails, please look in your spam or junk folders. If they are not found in there, you will have typed in an incorrect email address when completing the order form email address field.

Late packages

If your order appears to be late, please remember:

  • courier deliveries (which will be through Interlink) only take place on business days (i.e. Monday – Friday, excluding holidays).
  • delays to deliveries by Royal Mail do occur and these are beyond our control. Please be patient, as usually your item will arrive within a few days of dispatch. Always check your post box for an “unable to deliver” note, as most packages will be unable to fit in a standard post box and if a signature is required, they will not leave the item.

Please note: In some cases, Royal Mail do not leave an “unable to deliver” note. If your delivery has not arrived after 10 working days and you have not had an “unable to deliver” note left in your letter box, contact your local post office or Royal Mail collection depot immediately, as it will usually be awaiting collection there. If parcels are not collected within 7 working days, they are usually posted back to us. However, it takes around 30 days for us to receive returned parcels. In these circumstances, a delivery charge of €4.99 will apply to any orders that are required to be re-shipped to you.

Delayed, lost or confiscated mail

Please refer to our Terms & Conditions.

The time period before Royal Mail will accept that an item has been lost is 19 business days from the delivery due date for UK mail, and approximately 29 days for mail posted to anywhere outside the UK.

When placing an order with us, please take care to provide your full and correct address. In the event of lost mail due to incorrect address details being provided, we will not be able to refund your shipping costs (if applicable). You will also be required to pay for a share of the re-stocking fee, which will be 25% of the amount you paid for the item(s) in your order.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are allowed to import any supplement you wish to purchase from the UK into your own country. If Customs officials in your country return your order to us, either because you did not have permission to import such supplements, or because such supplements are banned in your country, we will refund your order less the shipping costs incurred by us. Please check with your country’s Customs officials to make sure that you are permitted to import any supplement before purchasing.

Important notice: Customs, in rare instances, may confiscate shipments containing locally prohibited products from entering into their respective countries. In the unlikely event that your shipment is confiscated, we accept no financial responsibility, and therefore will not offer any refunds for your order.
