Your body doesn´t produce calcium, so you must get it through other sources. Considering the fact that many Americans don´t get enough calcium in their diets (particularly children, adolescents and adults age 50 and older); calcium supplements are often the solution.
Calcium supplement labels can be confusing. The calcium itself can come from a variety of sources and be in many forms. The most common are Calcium carbonate (often from a land based source: limestone, marble or chalk) and Calcium citrate [simple version = calcium carbonate (most often from a land based source : limestone, marble or chalk) bathed in citric acid). Another natural source of calcium is coral calcium, a form of calcium carbonate that comes from a marine source (fossilized coral) that also contains 70+ trace minerals.
OneLifeUSA´s Coral Calcium is a wonderfully balanced formula. As a marine based source, it provides the beneficial naturally occurring ionic forms of calcium, magnesium and 70+ trace minerals. Additionally, its ratio of Calcium to Vitamin D helps maximize absorption and you can trust it as an enviro positive Non-GMO formula!
All varieties of calcium supplements are better absorbed when taken in small doses (500 mg or less) at mealtimes and contain Vitamin D (major role of vitamin D is to help the body absorb calcium and maintain bone density). For this reason, OneLifeUSA´s Coral Calcium is combined with vitamin D. Some studies also suggest that calcium, along with vitamin D, may have added benefits beyond bone health. Likewise there are compounds that decrease the absorption of calcium. For example, oxalic acid (in dark leafy greens, rhubarb, soy and cocoa), phosphoric acid (in dark sodas) and magnesium based laxatives all decrease the absorption of calcium.
Getting enough calcium on a daily basis is important. Most know about calcium´s role in building and maintaining strong bones and teeth, but your heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly. If your diet doesn´t provide your daily calcium needs (especially those 50+) or you eat, drink or take medications that decrease your ability to absorb calcium, then OneLifeUSA´s Coral Calcium formula may be your great choice!
