Most Common Uses: Coral minerals provide health benefits that far outweigh those of any other mineral supplement simply because they are all natural. Coral minerals are unlike any manmade food supplements available. They contain a natural balance of sea minerals, including calcium, magnesium and other essential minerals, as well as all of the trace minerals that are so valuable to the human body. Coral minerals play an more important role than any other supplement becasue research is now demonstrating a link between coral minerals and a healthy circulatory and digestive system.

Origin: Coral calcium comes from oceanic coral reefs and the shells of sea creatures, which contain limestone, and limestone largely consists of calcium carbonate. Coral also contains trace minerals. Since the law protects coral reefs from being harvested, coral calcium is collected from the parts of a reef that have broken off and are lying on the sea floor. The majority of coral calcium is taken from shores off Okinawa, Japan. Some believe the drinking water of the Okinawans, which comes from the coral-rich waters off their coast, plays a part in their health and longevity. Japan has one of the highest percentages of citizens over the age of 100 in the world, according to the Okinawa Centenarian Study.
