Lithothamnion Algae is a genus of thalloid red algae, about 2 cm (3/4in) in size, which lives in the oceans at a depth of about 15-25 meters (50-80ft). For a long time it was considered a coral; only in the 19th century it was discovered a plant (red algae). The young algae is purple-red, the grown algae is pink and the dead algae is white. The dead algae form a sediment, the so called Maerl.

Lithothamnion Algae is rich in vital substances, such as organic trace elements and minerals like calcium, magnesium, mangane, molybdene, iron, fluoride, copper, phosphorus, potassium, iodine, zinc, selenium and cobalt, to name just a few, as well as vitamins and bio-active substances (secondary plant compounds). Due to its organic nature and ionized molecular structure, Lithothamnion can easily be metabolized by the human organism. The main components of Lithothamnion Algae consists of organic, ionized calcium (36%) and magnesium (4%) which renders it a valuable source for supplementing the body with calcium and magnesium deficiencies (which typically result in muscle cramps and/or increased incidence of migraine attacks).

Lithothamnion Algae has a pronounced effect on stomach acidity and production of red blood platelets (iron content): due to a high pH (pH 9.6, which is low on the acidity scale), Lithothamnion may support the body metabolism to restore healthy pH levels throughout the body – which in turn reduces calcium depletion (hgh acidity levels reduces calcium, as it is needed to neutralize acidity). Calcium depletion is a major cause in compromized organ function, osteoporosis (depletion of bone structure) as well as rheumatoid arthritis (painful swelling of the joints).

Lithothamnion Algae is sometimes combined with Bamboo (Bambousa arundinacea) to promote healthy growth of fingernails, hair and teeth.

Counterindication: Consult with a physician when suffering from thyroid disorder.
