Aquamin

Sustainable Marine Minerals for Health

Aquamin is a Marine multi-mineral complex product range, providing highly bioactive minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium and 72 other trace marine minerals. The Aquamin product range is natural, plant-based and clean label, backed by 15 years of scientific research.

The Aquamin Advantage

Other than washing and milling, Aquamin is unaltered from the raw material and represents a natural multi-mineral material that is suitable for many food and supplement applications, especially where a plant-based mineral label claim is required. 

 

Aquamin Calcium 

Aquamin Calcium is a natural Calcium which can be considered 100% plant-based, clean label and sustainably sourced. The Aquamin Calcium product range is high in calcium and is rich in trace-minerals. Aquamin is derived from calcareous marine red algae (Lithothamnion sp.), which absorbs essential nutrients from the sea. The algae is sustainably harvested, from the North Atlantic seabed around the Icelandic coast.

Aquamin Magnesium

Aquamin MG is a highly bioavailable source of marine Magnesium and 72 additional trace minerals. Extracted using a proprietary process to capture this essential to life mineral from a marine source, Aquamin MG provide a unique mineral profile that acts synergistically with the enriched magnesium content. Aquamin MG is derived from the seawater off the Irish coast in a magnesium hydroxide form which is dried to a powder with different grades available depending on the application.
