1, What is the best way to take Coral Calcium. in capsule or a sachet, and why ?
The main reasons why the sachets are superior are: 1.)pH – It is extremely hard to raise your bodies pH using a capsule. First of all, we have not found a capsules with a pH higher than about a 9. Coral calcium does contain some carbonates along with the ionic minerals. The ionic minerals come from a micro-algae that grows in coral as it rests on the ocean floor. The skeleton is basically just carbonates. When you introduce these carbonates into your body the stomach will release HCl (hydrochloric acid, pH 1) to break down the minerals. When you combine the pH of 1 with the pH of 9 or lower then you are back to slightly acid. When using the sachets only the ionic minerals are released into the water since carbonates do not readily dissolve in water. Your body will recognize that you have ingested ionic minerals and water that do not require digestion and therefore will only absorb the minerals and water and not try to flood them with acids and enzymes and therefore increasing your pH. Actually, the ionic minerals will begin to be absorbed the second the water enters your mouth. There are thousands of benefits to an increased pH, so this alone makes the sachets superior. 2.) ORP – Oxidation Reduction Potential. This process of giving off electrons can only occur when adding coral calcium to water. This is why many capsule brands say to drink a full glass of water when taking the capsule. The water is useless when consuming a capsule since the water will pass through and be absorbed before the HCl in your stomach can even eat away the capsule coating on the outside of the coral calcium capsule. Also, when the coral is crushed into such a fine powder to create the capsules many of the electrons are lost in the process. The only way to take advantage of the antioxidant capabilities of coral calcium is to use the sachet form.
2,Will taking Coral Calcium affect any other medication that I am already taking.
The only medication that could be effected by coral calcium are calcium channel blockers that are sometimes used as blood pressure medications. There are many alternatives to these so you might consider asking your doctor to switch medications.
3, Can I take too much Calcium ?
If the calcium is in ionic form, such as the calcium absorbed from sachets, then no. What is not used by the body will be eliminated in the urine. When using the capsules then yes there is a limit. The capsules contain Vitamin D which in too large of amounts could be harmful. They also contain carbonates that only about 10% of which can be broken down and then rest could begin to build up in your body causing stones, deposits, spurs etc..
4, Can my body become too Alkaline.
Not using coral calcium. The highest pH the coral calcium will give the water is about an 11. Everything your body does creates acid so the 11 pH will not be strong enough to cause too much alkalinity.
5, Is it safe to give Coral Calcium to children.
6. Can I boil the Calcium water to make tea or coffee, or will boiling it take some of the goodness out of it.
Boiling it can remove some of the minerals with the steam, but it will help to reduce the acid in coffee and tea and can add minerals to any water based drink.
7, By mining Coral sand will it not destroy the living coral reef.
The process includes the only Japanese government approved collection method that carefully vacuums the coral semi-fossils from the ocean floor without harming the ecosystem. Our coral calcium is also the only coral calcium approved for human consumption by the Japanese government.
8, Is it ok to leave the sachets in the water bottle I use, i.e. keep adding a sachet everyday and refill with good water.
9, Are there any side effects from taking the Coral Calcium.
You can sometimes notice effects of a detox when first using coral calcium. This usually only last a few days and can include headaches, rashes, break outs etc.. If this occurs then dilute the coral calcium with 1 gallon per sachet for the first week.
10,Would I get any benefit from tipping the sand straight into the water, rather than keeping it in the sachets.
11, Is Fossilized Calcium the same.
Fossilized coral calcium only contains calcium carbonate and other carbonate minerals. Since all life is carbon based, all fossils are basically ordinary carbonates. Only marine grade coral calcium can contain ionic minerals. This is due to the algae that lives in the coral and that the coral feeds from. Fossilized coral from above the water no longer contains these ionic minerals since the algae requires the moist ocean environment to grow.
12, Why has Coral Calcium been investigated by the FTC On June 10, 2003 , the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) charged two marketers of coral calcium with making false and unsubstantiated health claims about the product’s health benefits. The FTC requires that any claim of effective treatment or cure of disease must be supported by reliable scientific evidence. The FTC making the charges against two marketers Barefoot and Trudeau. The FTC and FDA are not saying that coral calcium is not a great product, but only that without clinical trials proving it you can not say that it will cure diseases. Barefoot and Trudeau were claiming that it cured everything from Cancer to MS. There are no clinical trials to prove this.
However it has been proven that the free electrons in Coral can help to prevent free radical damage which causes cancer ,but you can not say it cures cancer as there have been no clinical trials. There are certain areas in which clinical trials have been performed and they are listed on www.CoralCalciumGuru.org. There is proof that it can help with blood sugar levels. There have been clinical trials proving it increases bone stiffness or mass. More that is reduces cholesterol, blood pressure, muscle aches, improves brain waves, reduces muscle twitching and much more.
13, How does an Alkaline pH benefit Osteoporosis Without us answering the question make your own mind up from an independant website http://www.betterbones.com/alkaline/index.htm
14. Can you tell me if this product is all right for a person with ulcerative colitis or would it be to rough on the colon?
Alka-line Coral Calcium could actually help improve the healing of the ulcer and colitis. The colon needs to be an alkaline environment and when it becomes acidic then colitis and other conditions occur and if not treated soon enough become ulcerative. The coral calcium would be a great thing to fight against the infection.
15. Can you tell me if the Alka-line Coral Calcium is suitable for vegetarians?. Yes it is suitable for vegetarians, Alka-line Coral calcium is an organic source of 74 minerals. The capsules are 100% vegetarian.
16. Can you tell me how much calcium my body will be getting if i use coral calcium.
This is a difficult question to answer. Each sachet contains 947 mg of coral calcium…but 99% of the people don’t eat the contents of the sachet. So, the actual amount of “ionic” calcium that is dispersed into the water and absorbed by the body is hard to measure. It’s certainly not 947 mg. Also keep in mind that because the calcium is in an ionic form…it is extremely easy for the body to absorb. So, what does enter the water is almost always 100% absorbable and useable by the body. If I had to estimate it I’d say that about 30% of the calcium is absorbed into the water. Also remember that the water becomes very alkaline with the coral which helps to buffer acid in the body. When there is less acidity, the body needs less buffers (like calcium) to keep pH balance. So, it is likely for the body to restore optimal reserves of minerals like calcium when using the coral product regularly. So if the body is not deficient in calcium it can do some wonderful things with even smaller amounts of daily calcium. That would explain why regular users of the product report increases in their bone density over time.
17. What i would like to know is the actual forms of calcium in the product i have ordered, ie is it purely Calcium Carbonate, or is it a combination of Carbonate, Gluconate and Calcium Lactate, or what?
When a mineral analysis is done on the X2O the calcium is listed as “calcium carbonate.” However, the calcium that is released from the X2O sachet into the water is ionic and actually “calcium oxide.” In fact all the minerals released into the water from the X2O sachet are ionic in the form of oxides. In this form the minerals are extremely small (approx. and angstrom in size) and readily absorbed and used by the body. Keep in mind that the X2O mineral complex is harvested in its natural state from the ocean floor. We do not add any forms of calcium or other minerals to the product as God/nature has already done the work in producing a truly remarkable supplement for our health and well-being.
18. Are there any studies to show whether Alka-line coral calcium can increase bone density, not just reduce bone loss?
There are no official studies to confirm that the product can increase bone density…but there are several testimonies from people who claim that they have experienced increased bone density over time as a result of taking the product. Consider this… The more alkaline your body is, the less it has to rely on using its reserves of calcium within the tissues and the bones to buffer the damaging effects of the excess acid. So, if the body gets additional “deposits” of ionic calcium daily while also being more alkaline through drinking in good alkaline water, it stands to reason that the opportunity for bone density to increase is very likely.
19. Do the capsules contain anything like soy, and are they tested for heavy metals, pcbs etc?
We don’t use soy in our capsulated products.
Our Omega products comes from ultra-pure sources, are cold processed and filter, and then each batch is analyzed to ensure there are no heavy metals, PCBs, etc. We also do this same level of testing on the other marine sourced nutrients like the coral calcium powder found in our coral capsules and the coral calcium sands found in our X2O sachets.
20, I have seen on your website that the minerals content of Coral Calcium shows some elevated numbers for some minerals, for ex. aluminum has 180 parts per million.I think anything above 5 parts per million is normally considered to be toxic. Could you please tell me if the amount in Coral Calcium can eventually be of concern? Also there are some minerals like Gadolinium that normally are not contained in the human body. Can they be toxic?
In the Earth’s crust, naturally occurring aluminum is the most abundant metallic element and the third most abundant of all elements (after oxygen and silicon). Because of its strong affinity to oxygen, it is almost never found in the elemental state; instead it is found in oxides or silicates which is what you have in the X2O mineral complex. This is not the same potentially harmful aluminum we get from cooking with aluminum pots and pans or consuming foods and beverage from aluminum cans.
The X2O mineral complex has 78 parts per million of this naturally occurring mineral (not 180). And since the mineral complex does not totally dissolve in water (meaning there is still much of the mineral complex remaining in the sachet after drinking the water) it is proof that the actual consumption of natural trace aluminum particles is far less. In fact, there is far more aluminum in a typical glass of tap water than you would receive in a bottle of purified water with X2O.
The Gadolinium is also naturally occurring in the Earth’s crust. It is not known to be harmful of toxic in its natural oxide state. And in the X2O mineral complex there is less than 1 part per million in the sachet (.481).
21, What type of Vit D is included in the Coal Calcium Capsules?
The only form of Vitamin D we use in our products is Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) derived from wool oil from sheep.
22, I have forgotten to check before buying it that I take evening primrose oil, vitaim D and collegan tablets every night, would that be a problem? Also I am going to start taking a herberl supplement called Pro-Argie that is to reduce pressure, sugar and heart problems.
Would that be ok to take this with them??
Also I should put the tea bag in a a bottle, not open and put the sand/contend in it right?
I have put in a 500ml of bottled water and will keep topping up, is that okay? Or do I have to put in a 1.5 l of water?
In general, there are no known interactions or adverse reactions from using the coral calcium sachets (X2O) in combination with other natural supplements or prescription drugs. In fact, using the X2O sachets in water may actually help deliver improved benefits or an increased percentage of nutrients from the other supplements a person is taking.
It is best to add the fresh sachet into a pre-determined amount of water and finish drinking that water before adding more water to a container with the same sachet.
