Tropical Oasis - Liquid Calcium Magnesium Orange Flavor - 16 oz. (480 mL)
Tropical Oasis Liquid Calcium Magnesium Orange Flavor is a supplement that your body can use. Buying dense calcium pills that your body can't process and absorb is worthless to your body and a waste of your money. Calcium deficiency results largely from poor absorption. You may intake enough calcium, but if your body can't absorb it, you can still become deficient. Remember that your body can only absorb minerals that are "ionized."
What does it mean when the label says "Elemental Calcium"?
Elemental Calcium is a term used for pure calcium. However, pure calcium is not available in nature. When purchasing calcium supplements, be sure to look for the elemental calcium content, not the total content.
Why is this so important?
It is important that your supplement be bio-available which means it can be absorbed and used by your body. Example: A tablet that contains 1250 mg of calcium carbonate, actually contains 500 mg of elemental calcium, plus 750 mg of "carbonate". After you take the product, these are separated with the carbonate being digested and the elemental calcium portion entering the blood stream to be used in biochemical functions such as building strong bones.
An honest label clearly represents the actual amount of elemental calcium the product will provide. Some products, although technically not mislabeled, appears to offer much more calcium than is actually provided and is very often misunderstood by consumers. Tropical Oasis believes in giving the consumer the most accurate information to allow the consumer to make informed choices.

Seldom do we know where the things we buy come from or why they were made. I feel it is important to tell those stories, and for that reason I would like to share with you their story and the reasons why they founded Tropical Oasis.
In 1996, I was a struggling young salesman working out of my 1970’s house in smoggy Houston, Texas. I remember contemplating my uncertain future as I sat in my drab spare bedroom/converted sales office, sipping on my daily dose of coffee. Little did I know that the coffee I was sipping, as well as everything I consumed made with my tap water, was slowing poisoning my system. Over the three years I had been in the house, I attributed my lagging speed and draining energy to job pressure and just getting older. Then, I discovered that the rusting iron pipes under my house had been leeching contaminants into every drop of water I drank.
My brother Terry was living in Dallas at the time, and when I told him what had happened, he immediately sent me a bottle of liquid vitamin and minerals and insisted I start taking it as soon as it arrived. Soon after, I started feeling better, but then I broke out into a severe red rash all over my body.
Worried about the rash and what could be causing it, I started researching nutrition, toxins, and contaminants. What I found was that my body was going into the first stages of detoxification with the help of the liquid supplements I was taking. After this experience, I realized the power and benefits of liquid nutritional supplements and delved deeply into learning more about nutrition.
With my passion for more knowledge, I became a certified nutritional counselor and continued researching and reading all the latest studies regarding nutrition and dangerous toxins in our food supply, a practice I continue today. I saw a true need to create liquid supplements based upon the idea of cellular nutrition to battle the onslaught of toxins in our industrial world. And with that vision, together with my brother, they founded Tropical Oasis.
A few years later, Inc. 500 listed Tropical Oasis as one of the fastest growing privately owned companies in America, and they haven't looked back since. They still hold true to their vision and strive to create the most effective supplements with the highest quality, natural ingredients available. They don't wait for government regulations to tell us something is unhealthy; they stay proactive to protect their health and yours. Each day brings new advancements and improvements that they continually incorporate into their product line. With over 20 products manufactured here in Texas, USA, you can feel safe knowing that products from Tropical Oasis are what they take for themselves and for our families.
From all of us at Tropical Oasis, thank you for your trust and they wish you and your families the best of health!
