CORAL CALCIUM+ is made from 100% pure ecologically-harvested Okinawan coral, with Vitamin D added for maximum absorption.
Microscopic animals create coral by absorbing and reforming ocean minerals into coral reefs. In the process, these minerals are transformed into positively charged ionic compounds with an affinity for the human body, as demonstrated by the use of coral bone grafts by orthopedic surgeons.
CORAL CALCIUM+ contains 38% calcium, 7% magnesium, and all 72 trace minerals found in similar proportion to the human body. Research analyzing both serum calcium concentration and urinary calcium excretion has proven the superior absorption of coral, comparable to the results of calcium citrate over other forms of calcium carbonate. 1,2
Furthermore, CORAL CALCIUM+ creates a powerful alkalizing cocktail upon contact with water and becomes instantly bioavailable to cells within the human body. These alkaline minerals help to buffer harmful acids and restore a healthy pH balance.3
GREENS+® cares about our fragile environment. Dredging the ocean floor for dead marine coral can negatively impact marine wildlife. Thats why we use only fossilized coral geologically pushed above sea-level thousands of years ago, and we never harm the living reef.
