Hi, I just bought a bottle of calcium tablets from with the following ingredients which are "harvested from the pristine seas in Ireland" -

Lithothamnium Calcareum, sea-vegetable, vegetarian capsules, corn starch(GE free).

They claim it is natural, easily absorbed, and organic. Each tablet contains:

calcium 300mg

magnesium 28mg

phosphorus 525mcg

boron 22mcg

selenium 0.9mcg

zinc 20mcg

copper 1.8mcg

sulphur 2.6mg

iodine 18mcg

Has anyone had experience with this type of calcium? I take 1 a day with lunch since my lunch usually doesn't include much calcium. Is this sea vegetable a reliable source of good calcium? I assume it is algae of somekind? Thanks!
