About Aquamin & Marigot:
Aquamin is a unique marine multi-mineral complex that provides bioactive calcium, magnesium and 72 other trace marine minerals, for the fortification of food, beverage and supplement products. Unlike other mineral sources used in food, beverage and supplement preparation, Aquamin is derived solely from seaweed harvested under an exclusive license off the coast of Iceland. The seaweed, which absorbs trace minerals from the surrounding seawater, coupled with Aquamin’s unique structure, results in a mineral rich product that is neutral tasting, free of chalky texture and easily absorbed by the human body. Aquamin Magnesium extracted from seawater, is a highly bioavailable source of magnesium for use in food, nutraceuticals and dietary supplements. Marigot Ltd. was established in 1993 and operates under a system that fosters an entrepreneurial approach, the core business involves the identification and development of naturally derived ingredients for the enhancement of Human, Animal and Plant Health.
