Ingredient Spotlight: Aquamin™

About Aquamin

Aquamin is a calcified “Lithothamnion” species of red algae offering a unique marine multi-mineral complex. This natural, plant-based source provides bioactive Calcium, Magnesium, and 72 trace elements.

Aquamin is derived from 100% seaweed, which absorbs trace minerals from the surrounding seawater. This form of absorption, coupled with Aquamin’s unique structure, results in a mineral-rich product that is neutral tasting, free of chalky texture, and easily absorbed by the human body.
