    That's very possible as I have never looked up the list for both. I do believe rock dusts contain a certain level of metals as well. Not sure if it's less or more than kelp if kelp does contain any. Again I've never looked but was just giving advice on alternatives. Someone with more knowledge will chime in to inform better options. I do know you should stay away from pacific kelp if at all possible as that's where a lot of nuclear waste is leaking yet.

    Kelp is a "must have", plain and simple. The kelp used is harvested in the N Atlantic, mainly around Nova Scotia or Iceland, very cold and not very polluted. I get THORVIN from Iceland and 100% organic. For me it's just easier to source and cheaper than the Canadian, but both are the exact same kelp and both organic. For me, the trace, minerals, and enzymes are much more important than any K value. That's why it's a "must have".

    Greensand works great as is and suppliments kelp perfectly and I've always added to my mixes for the last 8 years. I've recently discontinued adding rock dust to my mixes as they didn't supply anything that the greensand wasn't already supplying and were just adding unwanted density to the mix.

    This has just been my experience, buy and use whatever you feel comfortable with.
