New Organic Magnesium from Viridian Nutrition is an innovative plant-sourced form of the essential micronutrient magnesium and a “first” for the UK, the company says.
Derived from a type of wild seaweed known as sea lettuce (Ulva lactuca), the leaf-like structures are naturally enormously abundant in vitamins and minerals.
Viridian’s organic sea lettuce is sustainably grown without the need of land, fresh water, fertilisers or pesticides. The marine plant grows on rocky shores and seabeds, in the Mediterranean Sea and is harvested by hand to ensure regrowth. The sea lettuce is carefully dried to preserve the rich levels of magnesium.
This innovation is the first certified organic magnesium food supplement in the UK, having been produced without the use of fertilisers, pesticides, or other chemicals. It is certified organic by the Soil Association.
Magnesium contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue, supports electrolyte balance, the nervous system, normal muscle function, normal psychological function and the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
