We need calcium for many functions, but primarily to support the skeleton, where a steady supply of calcium enables the body to produce enough new bone. Coral Calcium helps build bones, may help prevent osteoporosis and regulate the normal contraction and relaxation of muscles, including the heart.
We are constantly remodeling our skeleton, removing old bone and replacing it with fresh new bone. Remodeling regulates calcium homeostasis, repairs micro-damage to bones from everyday stress, and shapes and sculpts the skeleton during growth.
This is the balancing act of resorption and formation. As we age, resorption can gain the upper hand and lead to overall bone loss, resulting in osteopenia or osteoporosis. You need a steady supply of calcium to produce enough new bone to counteract the effects of resorption.
Hard to get enough trace minerals
Plants can make vitamins but they can’t make minerals. They must get the minerals from the soil. The problem is that our modern farming practices typically only replace potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus. Essential trace minerals such as iron, calcium, copper and zinc have been depleted from the soil, and from our diets.
Why Take Coral Calcium?
Coral Calcium has many trace minerals that promote good health. Coral Calcium helps build bones, may help prevent osteoporosis when taken with Vitamin D, and helps regulate the normal contraction and relaxation of muscles, including the heart.
Ecologically Responsible Mining
Coral reefs are classified as endangered. Scientists and environmentalists unanimously condemn marine coral harvesting because of its deadly impact on coral life. Platinum Naturals’ Coral Calcium comes from fossilized above sea coral beds. These coral beds are mined from the earth in the Caribbean Islands, protecting coral reefs and living or marine corals.
The adult body contains approximately 25 g of magnesium, with 50% to 60% in the bones and most of the rest in soft tissues. The two soft tissues containing the most magnesium are the heart and brain. Magnesium is a cofactor for many critical physiological and biochemical reactions in the body, including managing bone metabolism, nerve and muscle function, protein synthesis, blood pressure regulation and blood glucose control. It is essential for energy production and to maintain proper cardiovascular function. Magnesium helps muscles to relax. If you suffer from cramps, inadequate magnesium intake may be the cause.
