Different Types of Coral Calcium

Coral Calcium Types – An Explanation

It is important to recognize that two broad, but distinct types of coral calcium, are used as health giving supplements by the Japanese and many people throughout the world.

The first type is fossilized coral calcium that has been deposited on the land mass, or washed up on the beaches. The second type is taken directly from the sea bed. The sea-bed coral calcium is the coral that has dropped from the reef or is processed by reef inhabitants. This type of “coral sand” has been washed to the ocean floor by wave actions. Marine coral calcium is closer in composition to the living forms of corals, because the marine microbes are still active and many minerals and organic elements are retained, in comparison to fossilized, land-based coral.

These are important differences in composition between fossilized (land-based) and marine (sea-bed) coral calcium. Marine coral calcium contains more magnesium, and the balance of calcium (24%) to magnesium (12%) content of this second type of marine coral is close to 2:1. This 2 to 1 ratio is the ideal ratio for calcium and magnesium intake in the human diet.

My research has led me to believe strongly that the natural, magnesium enriched, marine coral calcium is to be strongly preferred as a health giving supplement over land based (fossilized coral), which contains less than 1% magnesium. This superiority of the marine coral is due to its retained, ideal, ionic balance of calcium and magnesium in a 2:1 ratio, and the fact that for the fossilized type, a host of other nutrients were also washed out during weathering processes.

Vitamin D3 is an essential building block in maintaining a healthy, vigorous immune system. Studies in recent years, reporting the dangers of unnecessary sun exposure, are causing many people to drastically limit the time spent outdoors. Health providers have reported an alarming increase in Vitamin D deficient patients, and believe the trend to avoid exposure to natural sunlight has created this situation.
As a dedicated nutritionist, Robert Barefoot is very knowledgeable concerning the proper nutritional and dietary requirements of the human body. Bob recommends that everyone spend 2 hours in the sun every day (without sunglasses). Natural sunlight provides essential benefits for our bodies. Bob’s Best Vitamin D3 is an example of Barefoot’s commitment to provide consumers with health supplements containing only the purest and most effective ingredients.
Bob’s Best Vitamin D3 uses Cholecalciferol (Natural Vitamin D3) which is the most efficient and natural form. It is the only viable alternative to meeting the body’s need for Natural Vitamin D. There are other Vitamin D supplements that use Ergocalciferol or Vitamin D2, which is un-natural, far less effective and could actually be toxic.
The body is equipped with a network of Vitamin D Receptors. Essentially, VDR’s are present in the majority of the body’s cells and in the lining of the intestinal tract. Vitamin D Receptors in the intestinal tract aid in the absorption of calcium, magnesium and other nutrients the body requires to maintain strong teeth and bones and to sustain alkalinity and overall good health.
Researchers suggest that the high levels of VDRs present in the immune system are another indicator that the proper levels of Natural Vitamin D3 are a vital contributor to a strong and healthy immune system.
