Aquamin™ is a multi-mineral complex which is derived from the red marine algae Lithothamnion calcareum. It helps improve overall bone health, including building stronger bones and improving bone density (1, 2).
Lithothamnion absorbs calcium and magnesium into its cell walls to create a rigid honeycomb cell structure. It's this unique structure and the 72 trace minerals absorbed from the sea that make the calcium in Aquamin more bioactive than calcium derived from limestone (calcium carbonate) (3).
Aquamin is harvested in conjunction with international standards for sustainable marine aquaculture.
