○ Kelp

- Kelp is the major source of vitamins and minerals that are often lacked in our everyday diet.  Boncho Gyeongsoron defines kelp as Gonpo that enhances energy and blood circulation.  Kelp roots contain calcium that maintains mental stability and prevents stress-induced hair loss.  Containing about 50 kinds of minerals, kelp can maintain nutritional balance and prevent hair loss.  It is also great for preventing health problems, such as hypertension, stroke, constipation, thyroid gland problems, osteoporosis, heart disease, skin infection, and diabetes.  About a spoonful (10g) of powdered kelp a day is known to control gastrointestinal and hepatic activities to treat obesity and constipation.  Donguibogam writes that kelp was used to prevent arteriosclerosis and scurvy.

○ Geumil Kelp Festival
