Organika Coral Calcium Powder
Organika Coral Calcium Powder Details
- 100% pure bioavailable ionized coral calcium.
- Eco friendly, above sea source.
- Contains over 70 naturally occurring trace minerals.
- Supports and maintains bone health.
Organika's coral cal is derived from ecofriendly fossilized corals in Okinawa. With trace minerals, coral cal provides significantly better absorption & ph balancing than regular calcium supplements. Versatile powder form.
The Importance of Calcium
Calcium is an important mineral for the optimal functioning of many body systems. Calcium is a major mineral found in the bones and teeth. Deficiency of calcium causes bone and joint diseases such as osteomalacia, osteoporosis and osteo-arthritis. It also leads to poor growth and poor bone density in children. Calcium also protects the body from heavy metal toxicity because if calcium is deficient lead is absorbed by the body and deposited in the teeth and bones.
The muscles use calcium during contractions and by the nerves for proper transmission of impulses. If a deficiency of calcium affects the most important muscle, the heart, it can lead to arrhythmias. Calcium also helps with insomnia and muscle cramps by relaxing the muscles. Calcium lowers cholesterol, by inhibiting plaque formation, and lowers blood pressure, by ensuring the proper functioning of the arterial muscles. Calcium is pulled out of the bones when the body becomes too acidic. This can occur due to the use of some medications, poor diet or when the body is in a state of inflammation, like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Calcium is involved at the level of the cell with the structure of the RNA and DNA molecules and the activation of enzymes for the use of fats. Calcium is commonly recommended by natural health care practitioners for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, PMS, pregnancy, cancer prevention, nervous disorders, and insomnia.
Why Coral Calcium?
Coral calcium is a form of calcium carbonate that has better absorption because it is found in a complex with many other minerals. It is a good source of a variety of minerals, like magnesium, and trace minerals. Two types of coral calcium exist, fossilized and marine. Fossilized coral is farmed after it floats to the top of the ocean while marine grade is live coral that is vacuumed from the ocean floor. There is a debate between the makers of both types as to which is better, with no clear winner emerging. One must consider the ecological effect of both processes when purchasing coral calcium. Ensure that your supplement is tested for contaminants since the coral is farmed from the ocean.
Synergistic Nutrients can make a substantial difference in the uptake of calcium by the bones. For a variety of different reasons calcium can be difficult to absorb - one of them being that as a mineral, calcium has a negative charge that can repel it from the cells of the body. It’s very important, then, for people concerned about bone health that nutrients be taken along with calcium. Some of them include: magnesium (in a 2:1 ratio), zinc, silica, manganese, copper, boron, and potassium. While there are others, these are the ones that can make the biggest difference for bioavailability. Some of these, like magnesium and zinc, can increase absorption in the gut, while others, like the boron and silica increase the actual uptake of calcium by the bones and its subsequent integration as new bone mass
RECOMMENDED USE OR PURPOSE: Adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life as part of a healthy diet, along with physical activity may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis (in peri- and postmenopausal women) (in later life). Helps in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth especially in childhood, adolescence and young adulthood.
