What Is Coral Calcium?
Coral Calcium is one of the oldest and most primitive organisms in the world. Coral reefs are found around islands everywhere in the world, but the coral reefs around the island of Okinawa are unique. Out of over 2,500 varieties of coral in the world, only the type of Coral found there contains an organic composition like that of the human skeleton, including calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. Coral is a naturally balanced source of calcium and a diversity of trace minerals.
How Coral Calcium Helps You
Research has shown that when just a small amount of these special coral sands are added to almost any liquid it brings that liquid to an alkaline pH balance of 7.5 to 8.5. Coral Calcium helps balance body pH. A proper body pH level is considered necessary for promoting optimum health and the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
When Coral Calcium is taken twice a daily with water it delivers highly absorbable calcium which can be effectively used by the body plus over 70 other minerals to your system. Calcium is often called the king of the minerals, and is considered the common denominator of good health. While calcium is known for its value in preserving the structure of the body, recent research links appropriate calcium levels to the process of aging as well as many degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis, allergies, gallstone disease, heart disease, cancer and more. The importance of minerals is best summed up by the following quote:
Every disease is directly linked to a mineral deficiency.

What Vitamin D Does
The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. It promotes bone mineralization in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones. Without vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, soft, or misshapen. Vitamin D prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults -- skeletal diseases that result in defects that weaken bones.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential to good health. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
Magnesium's RoleAmong other things, magnesium regulates active calcium transport. As a result, there has been a growing interest in the role of magnesium in bone metabolism. A group of menopausal women were given magnesium hydroxide to assess the effects of magnesium on bone density. At the end of the 2-year study, magnesium therapy appears to have prevented fractures and resulted in a significant increase in bone density.
