Coral Calcium

Coral Calcium and Calcium Carbonate: Information

Coral calcium and calcium carbonate are both terms used to describe the same type of calcium. Calcium carbonate is the most cost-effective form of supplemental calcium, the most widely-studied and the most widely used in supplements.

Calcium primarily makes up the structure of bones and teeth, but is also necessary for proper muscle, nerve, and heart function. The most abundant mineral in the body, calcium can be obtained in the diet through milk products, dark leafy green vegetables, broccoli and tofu. There are also many food products available that are fortified with calcium, such as orange juice and soy milk.

Over time, the structure of bones suffers as a result of inadequate calcium consumption. The efficiency of which the body absorbs calcium declines throughout the lifespan, being greatest at infancy. Poor calcium intake over many tears may result in a debilitating condition called osteoporosis, characterized by brittle, porous bones and mostly affecting post-menopausal women. It is important to note that men may also develop this disease

Calcium Carbonate Coral Calcium's Health Benefits

Studies prove that increasing calcium intake is not only helpful in the prevention of osteoporosis, but also helps those that have developed the disease by minimizing bone loss and improving bone health.1

Using Calcium Carbonate or Coral Calcium

For best results, choose a calcium carbonate or coral calcium supplement that includes vitamin D and always take calcium with food, preferably in divided doses.

Side-effects and Cautions:

Those with hypercalcemia, sarciodosis, hyperparathyroidism, hypervitaminosis D and cancer should not consume calcium supplements except under strict medical supervision. calcium absorption may be affected when consumed in conjunction with caffeine, excess dietary fiber, or excess phosphates (especially in soft drinks). Consult your physician before using any calcium supplement if you are taking any medications.
