Aquamin® is a mineral supplement derived from red algae harvested off the coasts of Ireland and Iceland. Aquamin® is a rich vegetarian source of bioavailable Calcium and Magnesium and contains over 70 other important trace minerals. Marine vegetation is 10-20% richer in minerals than most land vegetables with excellent bio-activity. This multi-mineral complex supports bone integrity and has been used in clinical studies demonstrating that Aquamin® can help to support joint health and mobility. In studies utilizing Aquamin®, there was a significant improvement in WOMAC scores (a test which measures pain and stiffness), as well as significant improvements in 6 minute walking distance after 12 weeks of supplementation1. This formula also supplies Vitamin D, is 100% vegetarian, and contains Aquamin® that is completely derived from sea vegetables.
