Calcium is probably the most under-rated and under-supplied nutrient required by the human body. While the importance of calcium in the prevention of osteoporosis and other diseases of the bones has been known for years, it has only been recently that other benefits of a calcium-rich diet and calcium supplements are being realized.
Alkaline vs Acidic
The body fluids, such as blood, spinal fluid, and saliva of healthy people are alkaline while the same fluids of those who are sick are acidic. The body's pH level therefore is significant in preventing and reversing disease [such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and others]. According to Robert Barefoot, author of the book The Calcium Factor, in order to avoid disease and premature aging, the body should remain in an alkaline condition. One of the ways to accomplish this is to take more calcium.
Meeting the body's daily requirement of calcium can easily be accomplished by taking calcium supplements [unless of course you'd prefer to drink 1-1/2 gallons of milk or eat 3lbs of broccolli]. For many of us the problem is not in taking the supplements but in the absorption of the calcium. As we get older, we lose the ability to absorb many nutrients [especially calcium], due, in large part, to our diminished supply of stomach acid, as little as 1/5 the hydrochloric acid we produced as a child. So we must take calcium supplements in a form that our body can readily assimilate. And that is where Coral Calcium comes in....
Coral Calcium has the highest rate of calcium absorption of any calcium supplement and contains 70+ coral minerals [trace minerals]. Many trace minerals are often hard to acquire in the usual American diet. Coral Calcium, taken daily with a good multi-vitamin and combined with reasonable eating habits is one answer to many of the America's health problems. However, it is important to note, that while it may only take a few days to correct the pH level in a small child, it may take weeks, months or even years to correct the pH in an older individual [or ill individual]. Barefoot gives an accelerated regimen for the extremely ill in his book.
Coral Calcium is available at nutrition stores and now at many discount stores at a lower price. As usual, it is not wise to buy the cheapest as the quality is in question, however, it has been my observation that buying the most expensive may be a waste of money. You can also order from the source below. I trust them, because their price is reasonable and they run regular tests for lead and other impurities. I also use their "Supreme Greens" and "Kitchen Sink."

Note from Connie Eccles, CEO of ComPortOne: Since using Coral Calcium for a number of months, I no longer have heel spurs that had been plaguing me on and off for a few years. I sleep deeper and wake rested. I also need less sleep. I feel better overall and expect that will only get better.
