The Many Benefits of Coral Calcium Plus
As we age, it becomes more and more important to make sure we are doing everything we can to keep our bones healthy and strong. A great way to do this is by ensuring we are getting enough calcium, and NOW® Coral Calcium Plus is an excellent source of an alkaline form of calcium that can help support a healthy acid-base balance.* In addition, coral calcium has naturally occurring trace minerals that are important for bone health, as well as for optimal enzymatic activity.* NOW® Coral Calcium is not harvested from living coral reefs or even from the ocean environment, but from above-ground sources in an ecologically friendly manner. In this Coral Calcium Plus formula, magnesium and vitamin D have been included for their essential roles in bone metabolism.*
What is Coral Calcium?
Coral calcium is a type of calcium carbonate that is derived from coral skeletons. It contains small amounts of other minerals, including magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, and zinc.
How Does It Work?
Calcium helps build and protect bones. It also helps the nervous system function properly and aids in muscle contraction.* The body does not produce calcium; it must be obtained through diet or supplements.
A diet rich in calcium is important throughout life, but especially during adolescence and early adulthood when bones are growing at the fastest rate. Once bone growth slows around age 30, both men and women continue to need calcium to help keep bones strong enough to resist breakage.* After age 50, women lose bone more quickly than men due to estrogen deficiency.* Eating foods rich in calcium and taking supplements when necessary can help prevent this loss.
Coral Calcium Plus Provides Numerous Benefits*
Calcium is necessary for the maintenance of good health. It helps build strong bones and teeth, aids in muscle contraction, supports nerve function, and helps maintain a healthy acid-base balance in the body.*
Coral calcium provides many of the same benefits as other forms of calcium carbonate, but with the added bonus of naturally occurring trace minerals that are important for bone health*, as well as for optimal enzymatic activity*.
NOW® Coral Calcium Plus also includes magnesium and vitamin D for their essential roles in bone metabolism*. Vitamin D increases absorption of calcium from the digestive tract*. Magnesium also plays an important role in maintaining normal muscle and nerve function*, keeping heart rhythm steady*, supporting a healthy immune system*, and managing blood sugar levels*. These three nutrients work together to provide optimum support for bone health*.
NOW® Coral Calcium Plus is derived from above-ground sources and is collected in an ecologically friendly manner. It does not contribute to the destruction of coral reefs or negatively impact the ocean environment.
There are many reasons why you should consider adding NOW® Coral Calcium Plus to your daily supplement regimen. This potent formula provides numerous benefits that can help support overall health and wellbeing.* If you are looking for a way to increase your intake of calcium, NOW® Coral Calcium Plus is an excellent option that provides superior absorption thanks to the addition of vitamin D.* With its added benefits of trace minerals and magnesium, NOW® Coral Calcium Plus gives you everything you need to help maintain strong bones and optimum health.*
