Coral Calcium FAQ
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.
Where Does NOW Coral come from?
Only the pristine white coral heads are harvested. This harvesting process
involves removal of the protective layer of soil that accumulated over the years
and collecting the ancient coral. After the coral is collected it is ground
into a 2 to 10 micron size powder (smaller than a red blood cell). After grinding
the coral is purified in a vacuum ozone chamber and then packaged for distribution.
All coral supplied to NOW FOODS by Coral Inc. is harvested from an above
sea area in Okinawa, Japan. Thousands of years ago this coral was a thriving
coral reef. Geologically, this coral was pushed up above sea level, free from
the ocean pollution of the industrial era.
