Hafkalk Ocean Calm - Calming Mineral Blend with Marine Magnesium and Calcified Red Algae

Located in Bildudalur(in the remote Westfjords of north-western Iceland) is Hafkalk, a family owned business that produces food supplements. All of Hafkalks products are made from the highest quality natural ingredients. The key ingredients are from marine sources both local and from outside Iceland. Currently Hafkalk has three products: Ocean Calcium, Ocean Calm and Ocean Krill.


I have been using Ocean Calm, which is a calming blend of minerals, for the past month. Ocean Calm contains natural marine magnesium extract and calcified red algae. It also contains  pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P5P), the active form of vitamin B6, and vitamin C. All these ingredients work together to compensate for low levels of magnesium in the body. Magnesium is needed to regulate calcium transport in the body, to maintain normal muscle and nerve function and to build a healthy immune system. Apart from these key functions, Magnesium also plays an important role in preventing or treating a lot of other conditions like multiple sclerosis and heart diseases. The human body is not capable of producing Magnesium and so the only way to get enough of it is by eating Magnesium-rich foods.


Most of you must be aware of Calcium's importance and benefits. Calcium is needed to build and maintain strong bones as well as to regulate muscle contraction, including the heartbeat. We women, have a higher risk of developing brittle bone disease(osteoporosis) later on in life and such Calcium is very important to us. Again, for this we need to consume a Calcium rich diet. However, in today's fast paced lifestyle that is easier said than done and that is where  supplements come in handy.

The Hafkalk Ocean Calm capsules contain a blend of Magnesium and Calcium along with Vitamin C and B6. Like I mentioned earlier I have been taking these regularly for some time now and the most noticeable difference I have seen is that it relieves menstrual migraines and cramps. I am prone to migraine and get it at least 2-3 times a month and always without fail premenstrually.  Since I have been taking these capsules the intensity of migraines has reduced. It also has helped me with my mood changes during the menstrual cycle. I am sure the Calcium and Magnesium in the capsules must be doing good internally to my bones, but I am equally pleased about the other effects that I can notice externally.


Here is some information about the Calcified Red Algae that is used in Hafkalks products (taken from their website): "The natural calcified red algae in Ocean Calm comes from the pure waters of northwest Iceland and offers a range of minerals from a single natural source. Its unique porous structure makes it highly bioavailable to the human body. Calcified red algae contains over 30% pure calcium along with around 2.5% magnesium, plus 72 other trace minerals including iodine, boron, cobalt, iron, manganese, zinc and copper in a natural balance to enhance the overall health benefits."

Hafkalk products contain no fillers, colourants, anti-caking agents or other additives.
