About NOW Foods

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

    NOW Foods Coral Calcium Pure Powder - 6 oz.

    NOW Foods Coral Calcium Pure Powder is an alkaline form of Calcium that can help to support a healthy serum pH. In addition, NOW Foods Coral Calcium Pure Powder contains a number of trace minerals that are important for bone health, as well as for optimal enzymatic activity. NOW Foods Coral Calcium Pure Powder is not harvested from living coral reefs or even from the ocean environment, but from above-ground sources in Okinawa in an ecologically friendly manner.
    • Healthy pH Balance
    • Important for Bone Health
    What are Coral Minerals?
    A small sea animal creates coral by ingesting ionic ocean minerals and secreting them into a coral formation, eventually producing a coral reef. This natural balance of 74 organic coral minerals are harvested from above sea coral deposits and crushed into an ultra-fine powder. The natural balance of all 74 minerals is important because each mineral requires other minerals to perform their numerous functions. What makes coral minerals so absorbable is their natural ability to become ionic upon contact with moisture. This natural ability to ionize, combined with the full spectrum of trace minerals present, makes coral a desirable form of calcium.

    How do Coral Minerals work?
    Minerals are the basic foundation for health. From our bones to the multitude of enzymatic activities within and outside our cells, minerals are the keys that open the door to optimum health. This is accomplished by supplying the body with the necessary minerals that have crucial roles to play in good health. The calcium and other naturally occurring minerals in coral support the delicate pH balance of body fluids and tissues. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, making up 1.5-2% of its total weight. Coral Calcium contains mostly calcium carbonate, though the presence of other trace minerals is important to the action of this mineral supplement. Coral Calcium is often used to increase the alkalinity of the blood and fluids when it gets too low. Low blood pH, often called chronic acidosis, is implicated in bone thinning and other nutritionally-related disfunctions. Many people in our society are mineral deficient because the soils have become depleted through unsustainable farming practices. When the minerals are supplied in an absorbable form, health can improve. Coral contains trace amounts of every mineral needed by the body and is known for their synergism. Orthopedic surgeons use pieces of coral for bone grafts because the bone and tendons readily accept the coral.

    Is NOW's Coral Calcium tested for heavy metals and radioactive elements?
    Yes. Coral Calcium is tested for lead at a level below the standards for safety set by California's Proposition 65. Independent analyses has proven this Fossilized Coral calcium to be free of dangerous radioactive elements.

    How much elemental calcium is in each serving of NOW's Coral Calcium Plus?
    NOW Coral Calcium Plus contains 500 mg's of elemental calcium per two-capsule serving,. derived from 1.43 g of Fossilized Coral Calcium.

    Where does NOW's coral come from?
    All coral supplied to NOW is harvested from an above sea area in Okinawa, Japan. Thousands of years ago, this coral was a thriving coral reef. Geologically, this coral was pushed up above sea level, free from the ocean pollution of the industrial era. Only the pristine white coral heads are harvested. This harvesting process involves removal of the protective layer of soil that accumulated over the years and collect:" ":ng the shallow ocean floor, which is another method of harvesting coral calcium.

    Coral Calcium is mined from fossilized above-the-ground coral reefs off the coast of the islands of Okinawa, Japan. Coral reefs are made of massive structures made of calcium carbonate that is deposited by living things. Coral also contains about 74 different minerals. The combination of 74 minerals in an easily soluble form makes coral calcium a desirable mineral supplement for many.

    Processing for a Quality Product: The NOW Foods' Quality Assurance and Quality Control Departments take much care to assure a fine quality coral calcium product. Fossilized coral is pulverized to an ultra-fine powder without any heat treatment. Heat treatment denatures the calcium crystals. The next procedure is the testing of heavy metal content. Heavy metal analysis of the NOW Coral Calcium shows:
    • Lead is below 0.1 ppm (parts per million)
    • Mercury is below 0.01 ppm
    • Cadmium is below 0.05 ppm
    • Arsenic is below 0.5 ppm
    • Calcium averages 35%
    This analysis indicates that the heavy metal content is quite acceptable and the product is safe to consume. The product is now shipped to the United States in ocean containers where it is put through a drying oven at a low temperature (180 degrees F).This process reduces the moisture of the product to less than 1%, which dramatically extends its shelf life. Coral Calcium is then sterilized by ozone chamber (non-toxic natural process) to meet the safety standards for human consumption. Finally, the product is analyzed for the content of 74 minerals and then packaged.

      I recommend this product!
      This is an unconventional product review, but proof that the calcium in this product is quickly utilized by the body. I have been taking this myself for a few weeks, mixing it into water or juice. It dissolves easily and has no noticeable taste. Now for the unconventional part: One of my pet chickens had been laying soft-shelled eggs, usually sign of a calcium deficiency, due to the large amount of calcium it takes for them to produce the egg shell every day. I had tried supplementing with several other types of calcium, but it had not helped. I decided to try adding this coral calcium to fresh cut corn and feeding it to my chicken as a treat for two days...By day three her egg shells were back to normal. So if it works as well for people as it does for chickens....

      It's a very pure product without fillers or other ingredients. Coral calcium has trace minerals along with the calcium that are beneficial to me. Although this natural calcium is not absorbed well by the body, it helps to alkalinize my body, buffer toxins and remove them from my body. My health improved a lot upon taking this supplement.
