Since your body can’t make minerals, you need to eat food rich in minerals especially Calcium mineral to avoid having deficiency symptoms.
Minerals play a vital role in transferring nerve impulses, bone formation, maintaining a normal heart beat among other functions.
Living coral ingests a lot of minerals from the ocean water and they are therefore sources of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and trace minerals.
Coral calcium is a mineral powder made from dead coral collected from the bottom of seas and oceans in semitropical islands.
Ideally, minerals are important in maintaining the proper acidic and alkaline balance in your body to facilitate uptake of other minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients from the food you eat.
An acidic pH affects absorption of nutrients in the body and other metabolism processes in the body. However, with a less acidic pH, your body can easily assimilate minerals.
Coral minerals are referred to as ‘gatekeepers’ because they correct the alkaline/acidic imbalances in your body.
With an optimal range of acid/alkaline conditions, more nutrients become accessible while their uptake increases also.
With coral minerals, your body is able to maintain less acidic conditions and hence your body is able to get more nutrients from the food ingested.
