what is it?

Calcified Atlantic Seaweed® (CAS) is a natural mineral complex, from red algae, rich in calcium, magnesium, iron and several trace minerals. As natural and plant-sourced mineral it is used for various nutritional, nutraceutical and health food applications.

sourcing

Calcified Atlantic Seaweed® naturally absorbs minerals from the sea during its growth phase. Those minerals calcify to a skeletal structure and mature material settles separately from young and live material on the seabed, where it is harvested sustainably.
