There is more calcium in the human body than any other mineral. Calcium is needed for vascular contraction and vasodilation, muscle function, nerve transmission, intracellular signaling and hormonal secretion.
The greatest demand for calcium is to support the skeleton. Approximately 98% of the 1,000 grams of calcium typically found in the human body is stored in the bones, 1% in the teeth, and the rest is in the cells, blood and other fluids.
Why Take Coral Calcium?
Platinum Naturals’ Coral Calcium has many trace minerals that promote good health, ensuring that you get these essential minerals.
Using fossilized rather than living or marine corals, Coral Calcium helps build bones, may help prevent osteoporosis and regulate the contraction and relaxation of muscles, including the heart.
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.
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 use only fossilized corals and does not destroy coral reefs or use any living or marine corals. Fossilized coral calcium also contains about 15% more calcium than marine coral calcium, due to the impurities in 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 co-factor 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.
