Red Mineral Algae Description from NOW
-Vegetarian Calcium
-Calcium, Magnesium and Trace Minerals derived from Red Marine Algae
-Plus Vegetarian Vitamin D

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.

Great plant derived Calcium

I have been following the website of Vivian Goldschmidt on how to reverse osteoporosis the natural way without taking any bone drug. Her belief that plant calcium will be easier absorbed by human body makes a lot of sense. I have been taking NOW Red Mineral Algae since July 2011 after my DEXA scan showed I have osteopenia. I took it along with other supplements recommended by Vivian. In Jan 2014 I took another DEXA scan. I so elated to see that my bone density has increased significantly. My spine and left leg measured normal. They measured osteopenic before. My femoral neck is still osteopenic but by 30% less. I highly recommend Red Mineral Algae due to its effectiveness and its reasonable price relative to the price of AlgaeCal e.g. But regardless which supplement is chosen, it has to go with regular exercise to increase bone density and proper diet.
