The Magic of Kombu!
Kombu is anti-inflammatory and known for its detoxifying effect.
The iodine it contains makes it important in the proper functioning of the thyroid gland.
Kombu is also important because it protects the immune system.
I use Kombu in soups that include beans, lentils or lots of cruciferous vegetables as it improves digestion and reduces gas.
It really works, no tummy aches for me!!
As an added bonus, Kombu may improve thyroid function as its full of iodine, and according to Draxe.com the iron content in Kombu helps prevent both iron deficiency and anemic symptoms.
In my opinion, Kombu sticks look like beef jerky and I buy mine on Amazon, but you can also find in your local health food store.

Sugar causes inflammation.
Red and processed meat, alcohol, most dairy products, and common cooking oils also cause inflammation.
