Calcified algae are harvested from Icelandic sea beds. The algae are a natural source of calcium and magnesium. The algae are washed, boiled, and dried, then milled into a powder. The powder is mixed into a solution that is then spray dried. Live yeast is fermented, then exposed to UV light (which mimics natural sunlight) to trigger the production of vitamin D2. The vitamin D2 yeast is pasteurized and dried. The calcium and magnesium algae powder is blended with the vitamin D2 to create the final product. The powder is compressed into tablets, bottled, and available after passing our potency, purity, and integrity testing.
