Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosis) is a brown seaweed with a pungent marine smell and an earthy, mineral taste.

With a broad spectrum of minerals, it's a good source of iodine (the mineral needed for proper thyroid function) and of various L-fucose compounds, which are regarded as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and digestive aids. There are also some implications of them being anti-viral and anti-diabetic.

Unlike many seaweeds, the taste is not palatable to most people, so bladderwrack is often "hidden" in smoothies, soups and stews or put in capsules to take as a supplement.
