Seaweed is gaining acceptance as a viable source of iodine, serving as a nutritious addition to the diet and providing multiple health benefits. Brown seaweed contains the fucoxanthin antioxidant that plays a vital role in improving blood sugar levels and reducing type 2 diabetes risks. These health benefits will promote the usage of the product as a key ingredient in dietary supplements and pharmaceutical products. Additionally, given the rapid growth of the pharmaceutical sector, the production of brown seaweed supplements is likely to gain momentum, especially in North America.
