A Typical Analysis of Sea Minerals

Due to a few people misinterperating scientific measurements, I have removed some Certificates of Analysis from this page. They are still available upon request. Please understand that ALL our products fall well within or, indeed, under, the safe limits for human use.

PLEASE NOTE:  PPM = PARTS PER MILLION e.g. Zinc = 0.014ppm. This means there is 0.000014 of a millilitre of Zinc present per litre of sea water.

The most common element in the Sea is Magnesium (Mg). Australian soils are sadly low in this element compared to other continents. To find out what minerals do for you please look at our page  www.amenas.com.au/minerals-and-their-functions/   This explains the body's use of the most common dietary minerals.

I have a typical analysis of sea water below.

It is important to note that Trace Elements are just that, "just a trace".  Amena's Sea Minerals have the sodium chloride reduced to a very small amount, less that 4% or your daily requirements. Also the seawater is reduced to approximately 1% of it's original mass to become 'Sea Minerals'. Please use these tables as a guide only.

This is a makeup of seawater from https://web.stanford.edu/group/Urchin/mineral.html  Seawater, amazingly, doesn't vary much in its mineral makeup from place to place.
