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.

Coral Calcium and Health

In Search of Health and Youth

I share everyone’s quest for health and longevity. Whilst humankind has been denied a simple “fountain of youth,” modern science is pointing us towards the possibility of using nutrition to help secure a long and healthy life. In this new millennium, the limitations of allopathic (conventional) medicine have become increasingly apparent.

Coral Calcium and Health

The proverbial quest for the “fountain of youth” did not begin with the Spanish explorer, Ponce de Leon, but it is more than a coincidence that coral calcium and health was introduced as a important treatment agent in the oldest pharmacy in Europe that is located in Spain. This pharmacy is now a museum in Penaranda de Duero in Northern Spain and it was established in 1685. The introduction of ground coral as one of the first pharmaceuticals in Spain may have occurred from earlier occupation of the Iberian Peninsula by the Moors (Arabs).  In this Medieval Pharmacy ground, stony coral is prominently displayed as a treatment. The dispensing container of coral bears several inscriptions that describe its beneficial effects on the heart and brain.

The use of coral calcium and health in early forms of allopathic (conventional) medicine was based on little more than empiric (trial and error) use with evidence of benefit. When the Spanish found the inhabitants of Okinawa to be unusually healthy and long living, they recognized that the ingestion of coral sand, later to be renamed coral calcium, was the prime ingredient. In contemporary medicine, we still operate by trial and error, but we are convinced that we can better measure outcomes using modern scientific principles of research. Whilst I do not doubt the ability of modern science to identify the safety and effectiveness of modern medicines, the precedence of the successful use of coral calcium and health speaks for itself.

Coral Calcium and Health

It is foolish to propose that any single agent will promote health and longevity in a consistent and simple manner. After all, aging and disease development are highly complex biological events with a multitude of contributory factors. However, it should be noted that coral cannot be considered a “single agent,” as it is composed of thousands of different skeletal organisms that leached nutrients out of the ocean for millions of years, thereby containing all of the mineral nutrients contained in the human body. Setting these technical thoughts aside, humankind has been on a perpetual search for one potion, lotion or elixir that will guarantee eternal youth. Whilst this miracle eludes discovery, some of the secrets of health and longevity may be much more simple than hitherto supposed.
