Viridian Nutrition has announced the introduction of two new products to its expanding magnesium supplements range: Organic Magnesium and Magnesium Bisglycinate.

Organic Magnesium is the first certified organic magnesium food supplement in the UK and is an innovative plant-sourced form of the essential micronutrient derived from a type of wild seaweed known as sea lettuce (Ulva lactuca), the leaf-like structures of which are naturally abundant in vitamins and minerals.

The organic sea lettuce, which is sustainably grown on rocky shores and seabeds in the Mediterranean Sea, is harvested by hand to ensure regrowth and then carefully dried to preserve its rich levels of magnesium. Each capsule contains 150mg of magnesium.

Magnesium Bisglycinate features an easily absorbable and gentle form of magnesium which is bound to the amino acid glycine to enable optimal absorption and utilization by the body. The bioavailable form of magnesium is gentle on the digestive system and offers 160mg of magnesium per capsule.

“Our supplement development programme ensures we formulate effective supplements that ensure a personalised approach to nutrition,” explains Aimee Benbow, the brand’s technical director. “Organic Magnesium by Viridian is the perfect choice for those seeking organic whole food nutrition and lifestyle. Wild sea lettuce is naturally rich in magnesium. The harvesting is carried out in a sustainable marine-friendly manner, which is kinder to the planet. The organic certification by the Soil Association ensures purity of the ingredients.

“Magnesium Bisglycinate is a great option to help fill magnesium shortfalls from food sources, particularly for individuals seeking a gentle formulation.”

Both new products are vegan and contain no fillers, binders or artificial additives.
