A tea of chopped bladderwrack is often recommended by herbalists and naturopaths as a supplement for their patients with under-active thyroid. It is not generally considered a culinary seaweed, but it can be added in small amounts to soups and stews to increase the iodine and mineral content of the dish. In Ireland, bladderwrack is used in their traditional seaweed baths. Just make a strong tea of about a cup of chopped bladderwrack, strain, and add to a hot bath.
