Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Red Mineral Algae is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value for bioavailable calcium To help maintain bone density, instead of taking calcium derived from rocks, it's best to use the more bioavailable form from sea algae. NOW's Red Mineral Algae is the most economical way to do that. My only small complaint is that you need to take four capsules, and they are on the big side and hard to swallow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price I like all of Now products that I buy. The price, bottle size for number of pills, and quality is what I like about Now brand. I really cannot tell if it is effective but it cannot hurt to take more calcium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Calcium Purchase This is such a great calcium supplement because it is vegetable and is easily digested and absorbed. Stop eating rocks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be aware of the size of the capsules I ordered this Red Mineral Algae product after reading many negative comments on the regular calcium supplements that are mostly just "pieces of rocks".....I read a lot about the effectiveness of the calcium coming from algae and decided to try this brand. Hard for me to evaluate this effectiveness but be aware that the capsules are so large that the only way that I found to use them is to open them and drop the powder in my daily green shake (the recommended use being 4 capsules/day).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Red Mineral Algae with Aquamin This is a very affordable plant-based calcium product with 1000 mg. of calcium and 1000 UI of Vitamin D. I wish the pills were smaller, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calcium Source I use this for my calcium source and am pleased that it is marine vegetable-based. It is a highly potent supplement with a generous amount of Vitamin D to aid absorption. I take this capsule along with Vitamin C, magnesium and boron.
