History of Ingredient

Aquamin is a unique, marine-derived multi-mineral complex extracted from the pristine waters of the North Atlantic. Sourced from the red algae Lithothamnion calcareum, it is a product of its environment, accumulating over 70 minerals directly from the sea. 

This process of mineral accumulation has been occurring for thousands of years, allowing the algae to develop a rich, bioavailable mineral profile.

The sustainable harvesting of Aquamin ensures the preservation of the natural ecosystem, making it not only an ingredient of health benefits but also an environmentally responsible choice.

Scientific Make-up

Aquamin’s distinctiveness lies in its comprehensive mineral content, primarily calcium, magnesium, and 72 other trace minerals, in a matrix that enhances bioavailability. 

This natural composition is attributed to the algae’s ability to mineralize the sea’s nutrients, offering a plant-based source of minerals that is unique in its form. 

Aquamin’s structure provides a porous, highly absorbable framework, making it more bioavailable than other mineral sources.
