Lithothamnium is a small red algae of 2 cm. This algae once dried looks like light gray coral. Lithothamne is found on the coasts of Brittany (10 to 30 meters deep). Lithothamne has the particularity of crystallizing seawater minerals (especially calcium carbonate). This particular environment reveals an exceptional composition of minerals and trace elements.
The food lithothamne, is made up of the skeleton of the seaweed, its calcium carbonate composition makes it highly bioavailable. Lithothamnium mainly contains calcium, iodine, sulfur, iron, magnesium in the form of carbonate, silica, manganese, molybdenum, boron, copper, cobalt, nickel, selenium, zinc, silver, titanium, strontium… Lithothamne also contains proteins, vitamin C…
Lithothamnium and acidityProperties and therapeutic virtues:
Trace elements have an important role in the body. Lithothamne alone concentrates 19 trace elements, which makes it an important source of trace elements. Today our diet brings an exaggerated dose of acid to the body (meats, cheeses, bad fats, sweets, coffee, etc.). At the same time we suffer from numerous deficiencies in vitamins and trace elements, which prevents the neutralization and effective transformation of our acidity. Indeed, in order to neutralize our tau of acidity, our organism needs organic minerals. The deficiencies that we suffer force our body to draw on its reserves of mineral bases, which leads to significant demineralization of our body. These mineral losses weaken most organs (stomach, joints, bones, etc.). The lithothamnium fills these deficiencies thanks to its mineral richness, it allows a complete remineralization of our body.
Due to its basic composition (PH equal to 9) and its components highly assimilable by the body (calcium carbonate), lithothamne is important in the support and the acid-base balance of the body. Calcium carbonate (marine calcium) is an excellent antacid, it neutralizes the acidity of the body (tissue acidosis) encountered in many body conditions (chronic tendonitis, demineralization, cramps, sciatica, gingivitis, chronic fatigue, etc. ) It is frequently used in infant food to fill the mineral deficiencies of young children, breastfed with vegetable drinks.
The lithothamnium and the bones Calcium
is essential for bone mineralization, it ensures its growth, maintenance and solidity. The richness in calcium carbonate of the lithothamne, brings calcium in a perfectly assimilable form by the organism. The richness and quality of its minerals, its richness in calcium carbonate as well as its trace elements, associated with its antacid action, confirm the interest of lithothamne in osteoporosis and osteoarthritis and all forms of articular rheumatism.
Lithothamnium and digestion
Its great richness in minerals allows lithothamnium to stimulate intestinal transit and plays an antacid role on the stomach lining. Recommended use in cases of gastric ulcer and acid reflux.
Lithothamnium and fatigue
Its remineralizing action makes lithothamne effective against states of stress, chronic fatigue, nervousness and sleep disorders.

Although similar in format, dietary supplements are not drugs. Intended for the general population, in good health, they are not intended to replace medical treatment.
Food supplements are foodstuffs the purpose of which is to supplement the normal diet and which constitute a concentrated source of nutrients or other substances having a nutritional or physiological effect singly or in combination, marketed in the form of doses, namely forms of presentation such as capsules, lozenges, tablets, pills and other similar forms, as well as sachets of powder, ampoules of liquid, bottles fitted with a dropper and other forms analogues of liquid or powdered preparations intended to be taken in small measured units.
The 3 components that characterize food supplements
These products supplement the diet. They are therefore not a substitute for common foods. Their nutritional contributions are added to the contributions from the current diet, including those from fortified foods.
These products are essentially made up of ingredients with a nutritional or physiological effect (plants, nutrients, other substances, etc.). Unlike conventional foods, food supplements are not made up of a food matrix, that is to say a complex physical structure that notably combines macronutrients (carbohydrates, lipids and proteins).
These products are sold in the form of doses, which involves defining a dosage unit. This unit of intake must be measurable and of small quantity, compared to the quantities of food usually consumed.
Given their characteristics, food supplements are not trivial products. They can present risks if misused. It is therefore advisable to respect the instructions for use. It is also advisable to pay the greatest attention to cumulative consumption (for example when several food supplements are consumed concomitantly) and to potential interactions with other products (medicines).
The advice of a health professional is strongly recommended for:
pregnant and breastfeeding women, children and adolescents, people undergoing medical treatment.
In general, these claims should not mislead the consumer. In addition, the labeling of food supplements, their presentation and the advertising thereof must not attribute to these products properties of preventing, treating or curing a human disease, nor mention these properties.
