Introducing the Abundant Element® Range

February 05, 2021 7 min read

The Ocean protects, nurtures, and sustains life. A ‘primordial soup’ of essential nutrients, Deep Ocean Water is used in many societies for its health-promoting properties. Deep Sea Water has promising health benefits, particularly related to the prevention of various lifestyle diseases [1].

Abundant Element are a range of tonics derived from Deep Ocean Water, sourced off the coast of Western Australia and solar dried for over two years. Using expert technology, our Magnesium is extracted in its purest form and combined with organic acids.

Abundant Element is available in ‘Deep Ocean Water’, ‘Muscle’, ‘Sleep’ and ‘Skin’.

 Abundant Element® – Deep Ocean Water

  • Rich in Magnesium (100 mg), combined with Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, Boron and Strontium, which support normal body processes.
  • Zesty natural ginger flavour
  • Low kilojoule (31.8 kJ/serving)
  • Available in a 1 L bottle or 30 mL sachets

Our lives are busy, stressful, and far from simple. Compounded with an unhealthy lifestyle, poor diet, and lack of exercise, we leave our bodies susceptible to inflammation and illness. Abundant Element – Deep Ocean Water is naturally sourced tonic from the Ocean off the Western Australian coast.

Quick Facts on Deep Ocean Water

  1. Deep Ocean Water is used by many countries including the US, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and China.
  2. The Deep Ocean contains over 70 mineral nutrients, minerals, and trace elements.
  3. We extract our products through solar drying for a period of two years, followed by the removal of sodium chloride and sulphur.
  4. Research on Deep Sea Water shows therapeutic potential, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, and other promising effects on human health [1].

Role of Minerals in the Body

  • Magnesium [2] is a vital mineral that assists with several functions, including the creation of DNA and the production of energy.
  • Potassium [3] is essential for the maintenance of cellular function of excitable tissues such as nerves and muscles.
  • Calcium [4] keeps our bones strong and is required for normal nerve, muscle, and heart function.
  • Sodium [5] regulates fluid balance and is required for normal nerve and muscle function.
  • Boron [6] extends the half-life of vitamin D, which helps the body maintain bone.
  • Strontium [7] helps maintain bone health through stopping the reabsorption and enhancing the formation of bone cells.
Abundant Element® – Muscle

 

  • High in Magnesium Glycinate (750 mg), 5000mg of glycine
  • Gentle on the stomach
  • Sweet cream soda flavour
  • Low kilojoule (25.5 kJ/serving)

Looking to boost your workout? Whether you're a gym junkie or just wanting to stay fit and strong, this is a great daily tonic!

Quick Facts on Magnesium for Muscle

  1. Magnesium is a natural anti-inflammatory which supports muscle function.
  2. Magnesium is needed in reactions involved in energy production, to burn carbs, synthesise fats and proteins [2].
  3. Low magnesium is common and is related to a variety of factors including agricultural practices, food processing, cooking [8,9], high caffeine and alcohol consumption [10].
  4. Strenuous exercise increases urinary and sweat losses, increasing your magnesium requirement by 10-20% [11].
  5. About a third of Aussies do not get enough Magnesium in their diets [12]

What is Magnesium Glycinate?

Magnesium Glycinate is an amino-acid bound, organic compound. Organic Magnesium absorbs better in the gut and is more available for use by the body than inorganic Magnesium [13,14,15]. Magnesium Glycinate is gentle on the stomach and well tolerated by the body.

Glycine is a building block of important proteins- including glycine, glutathione, porphyrin, purine, hem, creatinine. Fun fact - it is also a neurotransmitter (brain chemical), which exerts inhibitory and excitatory effects on processes which control food intake, behaviour, and body homeostasis. As an amino acid, Glycine is needed for protein synthesis and can be used to protect against muscle wasting [16].

Abundant Element® – Sleep

  • Contains Magnesium Lactate (1000mg), Gluconate (1000mg) and Fumarate (750mg) and Glycine (1000mg)
  • Gentle on the stomach
  • Refreshing lemon lime flavour
  • Low kilojoule (23.3 kJ/serving)

We all know that sleep is important for our bodies and minds. So important in fact, that we spend almost a third of our life doing it. But when life gets stressful, sleep is often the first thing to go. Wind down for a restful sleep with Abundant Element® – Sleep.

Quick Facts on Magnesium for Sleep

  1. Difficulty sleeping and poor lifestyle choices contribute to greater Magnesium excretion by the body, which leads to low levels of the mineral in the body [17].
  2. Magnesium is a muscle relaxant and inducer or deeper sleep [17]. It blocks the action of NMDA (an excitatory chemical in the brain) and enhances the action of GABA (an inhibitory or calming chemical in the brain), facilitating sleep [18].
  3. Magnesium may play a role in protecting our mental health, which can directly or indirectly affect our sleep patterns [19].

Magnesium Lactate, Gluconate and Fumarate are organic Magnesium compounds which are more easily absorbed and used by the body, and easier on the stomach than inorganic forms of Magnesium.

Abundant Element® – Skin

  • High in Magnesium Fumarate (750 mg)
  • Gentle on the stomach
  • Great-tasting raspberry flavour
  • Low kilojoule (22.6 kJ/serving)

The skin is the largest organ in the body. It has many functions including providing a sensory interface, regulating body temperature, maintaining fluid balance, modulating metabolic functions such as the production of vitamin D and is also our immune system’s first line of defence.

Support your skin! Abundant Element® Skin is a natural tonic, designed to calm the skin and to leave you glowing.

Quick Facts on Magnesium for the Skin

  1. Magnesium is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory [20], which may help to reduce skin redness and inflammation.
  2. Low magnesium reduces fatty acids on the surface of the skin and collagen, which leads loss of moisture and elasticity.

Why Magnesium Fumarate?

With a pH of 3-5, Magnesium Fumarate dissociates in the body to form Magnesium, Fumaric Acid and Fumaric Acid Esters (Fumarate).

Fumarate is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle, which is required for the formation of energy in the form of ATP. It is theorised that when there is not enough Fumarate to complete this cycle, incomplete or half products form as a result, which contribute to the formation of skin lesions. In a narrative review of six randomised controlled trials and 29 observational studies, fumaric acid esters have promising effects for the management of problematic skin [21].
