Coral Calcium Ultra
Over the centuries coral has been used medicinally to bring about relief from a variety of body problems. Ailments such as arthritis, osteoporosis, musculoskeletal pain, heart palpitations, cancer, high cholesterol, eczema, menstrual cramps, headaches, insomnia, diabetes, kidney stones, and many others. Coral naturally contains a highly absorbable form of all the minerals the body needs. As the coral minerals replenish the overall mineral content of the body, the pH of the body returns to its innate alkaline (high pH) state, thus enhancing the immune system and overall wellness of the individual. Almost all diseases thrive in an acidic (low pH) environment and are inhibited in an alkaline (high pH) environment.
Coral is often thought of as just a great calcium source but in fact it possesses a natural synergy of every mineral the human body needs to thrive. Coral s legendary power is due in large part to it s abundance of trace minerals. Don t get me wrong, the calcium component is very important, but the coral s trace minerals deserve some recognition too. Trace minerals are the catalysts the body uses to initiate complex reactions and it's these reactions that allow the body to stay healthy and fight disease.
Throughout the last century the level of trace minerals in our topsoil has been reduced. This disturbing fact has lead to a worldwide deficiency of these trace minerals in our food and our body. I and many others attribute the ongoing decline in health that our society is experiencing, in large part, to deficiencies of trace minerals. Coral Calcium Ultra with its synergy of vitamins and minerals may truly hold the key to health and wellbeing. "Every ailment, every sickness and every disease can be traced back to an organic trace mineral deficiency" Linus Pauling, PhD; two time Nobel Prize winner.
One of Coral Calcium Ultra's benefits is as an acid-alkaline balancer (pH). pH is a measure of acidity or alkalinity; the higher the number, the greater degree of alkalinity and the lower the number, the greater degree of acidity. We begin life with most of our body fluids and tissues in a slightly alkaline (high pH) state. The small percentage of us who follow a natural diet and lifestyle are able to maintain an alkaline state and thus stay healthy. The majority of us, though, succumb to the vices of modern society: fast food, alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs, not to mention being exposed to pollution and chronic stress. All of these things lead to an overly acidic system and the predisposition to disease.
The concept of aberrations in the acid-alkaline balance of the body being the prime cause of cancer was validated in 1931 by Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Otto Warburg. Dr. Warburg proved that cancer thrives in an environment that lacks sufficient oxygen. If an acidic system is allowed to persist, the body can become starved of oxygen, and diseases such as cancer can occur. Only minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium can raise and maintain an alkaline (high pH) system. These minerals play a crucial role in alkalinizing the body fluids and tissues but only when they are in a form that can be easily absorbed. Coral is a very effective alkalizing agent because the coral minerals are easily absorbed into the body bio-available.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CORAL CALCIUM
The following are the unbiased true facts about coral calcium in regards to Marine Grade Coral Calcium vs Fossilized (Land Grade). We do not favor one type over the other. We just think the marine grade coral calcium is better and that is what we sell. We encourage you to do your own research, visit other sites to compare prices & products, and draw your own conclusions as to which product you prefer. We believe the informed customer is the best customer. The fact is that either type will provide benefits for the user.
There is a confusing array of coral calcium products on the market with widely ranging prices and claims. Naturally, every company tries to position their brand as the premium form of coral. Claims include "most absorbable on the market" "clinical grade" "fossilized" "marine" "sango" " ionized" "Robert Barefoot formula" and so on.
LET'S CLEAR UP SOME MYTHS AND CLARIFY SOME TERMS
Robert Barefoot Formula
Several companies, each with a different formula, either have Barefoot's name on their formula or advertise that they represent him in one way or another - some do, some don't. Mr. Barefoot is currently promoting the "Marine Product." Over the years he has represented a number of companies and each brand or type he represents at the time is " the best form of coral calcium." When he represented "Fossilized" it was the best, now that he is representing "Marine" it's the best. Not that it really matters, Coral Calcium works with or without Barefoot's name on it. Any formula containing some Vitamin D and a few other goodies is a bonus.
Fossilized (Land) Coral versus Marine Coral
There are two sources of Okinawan Coral. Fossilized (Land), which is mined above sea level, and Marine, which is vacuumed from the ocean bottom near the reefs. Which is best ? Laboratory analysis and comparison of certified certificate of analysis of the two kinds shows each type has similar quantities of each of the 74 minerals. Fossilized tends to have a little higher percentage of calcium, about 30% to 38%, and the Marine type has about 20% to 24% calcium. Marine has a higher percentage of Magnesium, about 10% to 12%, and the Fossilized type has about 1% Magnesium. Most of the better companies will state the exact amount on their label.
The fossilized suppliers claim that theirs is in aragonite form, which is more soluble than the marine variety, which is heat treated to 1000 degrees and becomes a calcite form of crystal. This is true and has been verified in laboratory testing.
The marine suppliers say theirs is advantageous due to a natural 2:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium. Tests indicate that magnesium has likely been added to accomplish this ratio, which is fine, and does not dilute the calcium or other minerals as some claim. Most of the fossilized (land) brands have magnesium added also, but the fossilized companies are up front about it and show it on their label.
Caution: Not all Coral Calcium products on the market are from Okinawa Japan (some are from the Caribbean and South America). The difference being that Coral Calcium from Okinawa has underwent years of clinical testing - the others have not.
Some say Sango is the best, actually Sango Coral calcium supplements is simply a local Okinawan reference to coral in general, so then all Okinawan coral is Sango.
All Okinawan coral is ionized. The important thing is that this ionization makes it far more usable for humans to absorb, compared to regular calcium supplements.
Some claim to have "clinical grade", but no explanation is offered to how this is different from any other. Coral is a whole food source of calcium and minerals and there is no standard rating system, including "clinical grade".
The formulas on the market are very simple formulations, based on Dr. Carl Reich's work from 1950 to 1992, where he combined Calcium including minerals, Magnesium and Vitamin D to work miracles in patients. A physicians involvement is arguably overkill.
Although super qualities has been attributed to these microbes, it is not believed microbes exist in commercially available coral, if at all. No evidence (microscope picture or identifying names) is available. Marine type is heat treated to 1000 degrees and fossilized type is ozonated. Both processes will kill any living microbe. The coral works, but not because of microbes.
