Coral Calcium - Nature's Minerals and pH Balance

Although coral is often called "coral calcium", coral naturally contains every mineral needed by the human body, not just calcium. This abundance of trace minerals is a large part of the explanation of coral’s legendary powers. The full coral story is a fascinating description of the coral mineral’s high bio-availability, and the resulting benefits to the human body.At least 157 diseases are caused by mineral deficiencies. Coral naturally contains a highly absorbable form of every mineral needed by the body. When the coral minerals fulfill a specific mineral deficiency, a specific health condition is improved. As the coral minerals raise the overall mineral content of the body, the pH of the body returns to it’s natural alkaline (high pH) state, thus enhancing the immune system and overall wellness of the individual. Disease thrives in an acidic (low pH) environment and starves in an alkaline (high pH) environment.

Minerals are the basic building blocks of health. Enzymes, nerves and most other internal actions rely upon minerals for proper function. Trace minerals in our soils have become depleted which has led to a deficiency in our foods and hence our bodies. Trace mineral deficiency is part of the explanation of the vast decline in health that our society is facing. Coral minerals truly hold the key to health for many people.

Coral is rich in calcium and performs as an excellent calcium supplement because it is very absorbable and does not cause the uncomfortable side effect of constipation commonly found with other calcium supplements. The calcium component of coral is important but the coral trace minerals are even more important.

This abundance of trace minerals is a large part of the explanation of coral’s legendary powers. The full coral story is a fascinating description of the coral mineral’s high bio-availability, and the resulting benefits to the human body.

Most minerals are difficult for the human body to absorb. The 74 minerals naturally present in coral are highly bio-available because:

    • Coral minerals are made organically, having been previously digested by an animal.
    • Coral minerals have the inherent ability to go ionic upon contact with moisture.
    • Coral minerals are in a natural balance with all of the minerals required to support each mineral in it’s designated role.
    • Coral minerals are synergistic with the human body, so much so that orthopedic surgeons often use pieces of coral for bone grafts because the body readily accepts the coral as part of its natural structure.

When minerals are assimilated and effectively enter the body, specific trace mineral deficiencies are supplied and overall mineral stores are replenished. Wonderful things begin to happen within the system: specific health conditions improve that were caused by a trace mineral deficiency and as overall mineral stores are replenished, a beneficial balance is established in the immune system and general health is enhanced. This overall replenishment of mineral stores can be quantified and measured as pH. pH may appear to be an abstract scientific term but can be easily understood as an oxygen measurement system. The higher the number, the greater the oxygen content. All healthy humans begin life with most of the body fluids and tissues in a slightly alkaline state (high pH). Over time, in modern society, the body tissues and fluids often become acidic (low pH) from the food, drink, prescription drugs, pollution and stress, that are absorbed on a daily basis. (Note: this discussion of fluids does not include blood, which keeps a consistent pH).

An alkaline (high pH/oxygen rich) system is important because we are oxygen creatures. Oxygen is the most essential substance for human life. Humans can survive weeks without food and days without water but only 3 minutes without oxygen. Many Naturopathic Doctors believe that at least 157 diseases are caused by an acidic/low pH system. In fact almost every named and unnamed disease condition has one thing in common: higher than normal accumulation of acidic waste in the body. Decades ago Dr. Otto Warburg, the only physician to ever win two Nobel prizes, proved that cancer can not exist in an alkaline/high pH environment.

Many substances (such as baking soda) can raise pH temporarily but only minerals can raise and maintain pH. Minerals play a crucial role in alkalizing the bodily fluids and tissues only when they are in a form that can be assimilated. Coral is a very effective alkalizing agent because the coral minerals are bio-available, meaning, they get in to where they are supposed to be and where they can do their job.
