FAQ on Coral Calcium
What are Coral Minerals?
A small sea animal creates coral by ingesting the ionic ocean minerals and
secreting them into a coral formation. This natural balance of 74 organic coral
minerals are harvested from above sea coral deposits, crushed into an ultra-fine
powder and sterilized with ozone. The natural balance of all 74 minerals is
important because each mineral requires other minerals to perform their numerous functions.
The organic nature (previously digested by an animal) of the coral minerals is also
important. It is difficult to assimilate minerals, especially inorganic minerals.
The organic minerals found in coral are more easily absorbed.
What makes the coral minerals so absorbable is the natural ability to become ionic
upon contact with moisture. This natural ability to ionize, combined with the full
spectrum organic formation, makes coral one of the most absorbable form of minerals.
How Do Coral Minerals Work?
Minerals are the basic foundation for health. From our bones to the multitude of
enzymatic activities within and without our cells, minerals are the keys that open
the door to optimum health. This is accomplished by supplying the body with the
necessary minerals that have crucial roles to play in good health. The calcium and other
naturally occurring minerals in coral support the delicate pH balance of body fluids and
tissues. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body making up 1.5-2% of its total weight.
Most people in our society are mineral deficient because the soils have become depleted
through unsustainable farming practices. When the minerals are supplied in an organic
absorbable form, health can improve. Coral contains every mineral needed by the body
and is known for it's synergistic relationship with the body. Did you know that orthopedic
surgeons use pieces of coral for bone grafts because the bone and tendons readily
accept the coral?
Is the Coral Calcium tested for heavy metals and radioactive elements?
Yes. Lead levels are less than .5ppm and well below the standards for safety set
by Proposition 65. Independent analyses has proven this Fossilized Coral calcium to
be free of dangerous radioactive elements
