Coral Calcium Story

The Story of Coral Calcium

A British journalist from the Guinness Book of Records was on assignment to interview Shigechiyo Izumi, the world's oldest documented living person, a sprightly 115-year-old man in remarkably good health. The journalist was amazed by Izumi's vitality and the fact that he had worked until the age of 105. When the journalist realized most of the island's inhabitants were physically fit, with long lifespan and low incidences of serious illness, he persuaded Mr. Izumi to submit to a medical check up.

These islands were built up from Sango coral reefs that are chemically very similar to the human skeleton. When rain falls on these islands, it percolates through these ancient coral deposits and picks up minerals and other elements that make it truly unique. Not only does it contain many essential minerals, it is also very alkaline, with a pH between 7 and 8.5.

Over a decade ago, the health conscious Japanese government authorized the mining of this Sango coral sand. Sango coral is the only coral out of 2,500 species found to have these health benefits, and only occurs in abundance around Okinawa, Japan. Over four million Japanese consume coral calcium daily.

The mining operation, careful not to damage any of the living coral, extracts, pulverizes and treats this Sango coral sand, enriched with coral calcium, magnesium, valuable minerals and trace minerals of the sea. The coral is then placed into capsules. When taken, the coral calcium will raise the body's pH level to a healthy alkaline state.

In other parts of the world, cultures such as the Hunza's of North Pakistan, the Tibetans, Armenians, Azerbajans and the Titicacas of Peru, all live long and healthy lives. The common denominator is calcium consumption. The only source of water for all these cultures is melting glacier water. The water is turbid, white like milk, as it contains the crushed rocks that were contained in the glacial ice.

These cultures drink this water, known as "Milk of the Mountains," containing the suspended minerals. Each quart of Hunza's water, for example, contains 9,000 mg of ionic calcium as well as large amounts of other minerals.
