Magnesium Powder from Whole Food ( Icelandic Red Algae) Effervescent, Certified Vegan

Description

Whole Food Magnesium Powder is sourced from whole food marine algae (Lithothamnion calcareum). The source of the magnesium in this formula (Aquamin®) is harvested in the pristine waters of the North Atlantic. Its unique honeycomb cell structure makes it more bioavailable than many other magnesium products. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body that is part of over three hundred biological processes. Most notably it promotes healthy bones and muscles but it is also instrumental in supporting relaxation and can act as a calmative. *

 

Features:

  • Non GMO and VEGAN Certified
  • 350 mg of Magnesium per serving sourced from Aquamin®, mineralized red algae is collected in the pristine Arctic waters of Iceland & North Atlantic
  • Convenient effervescent drink mix that mixes easily in water
  • Highly absorbable and fast-acting
  • Free of major food allergens, Contains NO: sugar, dairy, yeast, wheat, gluten, eggs, peanuts, soy, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors
  • Whole Food, Simple and Clean Excipients

 

Benefits:

 

  • Clinical Study supports that Aquamin® ‘is bio-accessible and bioavailable to a significantly greater degree’ than other forms of Magnesium.
  • Magnesium a cofactor for well over 300 biochemical reactions *
  • Magnesium is required for nutrient metabolism and energy production, muscle function and works synergistically with calcium, where calcium is responsible for muscle contraction and magnesium, muscle relaxation. *
  • Magnesium is also essential for maintaining a normal, healthy blood pressure, and is required for the synthesis of DNA and RNA, cell membrane function and the activity of hormones, neurotransmitters and other cellular *

 

Common Questions

QUESTION: What is the chemical type of magnesium found in this algae? Is Magnesium Hydroxide or is that only in the marine salt water? I assume that the magnesium in the product is from the algae itself, not the sea water. What is the chemical formula?

ANSWER: There are 2 components to the Aquamin™ ingredients. Both types are Magnesium Hydroxide.

First, Aquamin™  Mg TG is a natural mineral source produced from pristine Irish seawater.[340 mg of Magnesium/scoop come from this source].

Second, Aquamin™ F is also added: it is produced from mineralized seaweed (Lithothamnion sp.). The seaweed is harvested from the seabed off the West coast of Ireland and North West coast of Iceland from clear, pollution free, mineral rich Atlantic waters. The dried calciferous material is not in but on the seaweed, and when dried, shaken off. {This contributes about 10 mg of Magnesium/scoop].

Aquamin® Mg is from naturally ionic seawater and is a clean, sustainable, and natural source of magnesium. It is a superior whole food source of magnesium, with higher absorption and assimilation rates than more common forms like magnesium. In fact, a study* from the University College Cork, Ireland has shown Aquamin™  Mg is over three times more soluble and absorbable than magnesium oxide (the type most likely to cause diarrhea), and it's even slightly more absorbable than magnesium chloride, which is another better-tolerated type, but which only contains about one-third the amount of elemental magnesium by volume (12%, vs. 33% for Aquamin Mg), meaning you'd have to take far more teaspoons of a magnesium chloride version to get the same dosage as this new type, magnesium hydroxide.

QUESTION: What is the Calcium content? Red algae usually has much higher calcium content than Magnesium content, is that true in the product or is calcium taken out?

ANSWER: There is not enough Calcium in the remnant material to either require a declaration  or support a claim of calcium on the label.
