What are minerals?

Minerals are needed for the regulation of your enzymes and hormones, among other things. Minerals play an important role in a variety of bodily processes. Think for instance of tissue building, a properly functioning nervous system, the sturdiness of your blood vessels and your digestion.

Similarly to vitamins, small amounts of minerals can be found in food and drink. They are vital to good health and normal growth and development. The difference between vitamins and minerals is that vitamins come from so-called living nature — fruit, for instance. Minerals are found in so-called non-living nature, such as the ground used to grow the fruit. The fruit uses the minerals from the ground, so the minerals are passed on to you when you eat the fruit. Minerals and trace elements are components your body cannot create on its own, which you therefore have to get through your diet. This is why a varied and healthy diet is essential for getting enough minerals.

When do you need extra minerals?

  • During pregnancy (selenium, iron and zinc)
  • If you’re vegetarian or vegan (iron, zinc and calcium)
  • When you’re over 50 (calcium)
  • If you have an insufficiently varied diet
  • When you’re losing weight
  • If you have an increased need

Why a red algae complex?

The red algae complex contains high-quality minerals that are sustainably sourced and support your body from within. MineraSana’s main ingredient is a specific red algae complex called AquaminTM. Over the past 10 years, this unique ingredient was the topic of 33 revised publications which demonstrated the ingredient’s unique supporting qualities. In May 2016, AquaminTM also received the prestigious NutraIngredients Award of the Year in the Healthy Ageing category.

The unique AquaminTM mineral complex

Unlike other sources of minerals, AquaminTM is sourced entirely from red algae known as Lithothamnium. These red algae absorb various trace elements from the surrounding sea water. The combination of this form of absorption and AquaminTM’s unique structure results in a mineral-rich product that is free from chalk-like textures and easily absorbed by the human body.

NutraIngredients Award 2016 winner

AquaminTM, the unique multi-mineral complex, was named one of the best ingredients and supplements, and won the Healthy Ageing Ingredient of the Year Award as part of VitaFoods Europe.


Why sea minerals?

The minerals derived from the red algae (Lithothamnium) are only found in a few places in the world. During its growth, this algae absorbs a lot of (sea) minerals, which makes it much richer in minerals compared to vegetation found on land. The calcified remains of this red algae are harvested, washed, dried and standardized based on the amount of natural calcium and magnesium. Natural sea minerals do not have the same structure as land minerals. They are characterized by an open structure that makes them more effective and improves absorption.

MineraSana contains:

Ingredients:
Red algae (Lithothamnium), bulking agents(microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate), vegan capsule (hydroxypropylmethylcellulose), zinc (gluconate), copper (bisglycinate), vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), vitamin B6 (hydrochloride).
