LifeSource Vitamins Proprietary Coral Calcium
We here at LifeSource Vitamins would like to clear up all of the
misconceptions and confusion about Coral Calcium. Calcium can be a secret
to good health. No other mineral is capable of performing as many
biological functions as calcium. This amazing mineral provides the
electrical energy for the heart to beat and for all muscle movement. An
important biological job for calcium is DNA replication, which is crucial
for maintaining youth and a healthy body. Low calcium levels in the body
mean low body repair and premature aging. With premature aging comes
premature diseases, most of which are preventable.*
The scientific evidence that calcium is the key to good and long health is
overwhelming. This has been noted in articles in such reputable
publications as, New England Journal of Medicine, The Journal of the
American Medical Association, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,
Readers Digest, US News and World Report and so many others. Coral Calcium
controls all nerves and helps our DNA, which we need as DNA only replicates
when Calcium-induced, which rebuilds when we stop rebuilding we grow old
quicker. We are supposed to live past 100 years of age, it is even in the
bible. But by the time we are all 60 years of age, we are 90% calcium
deficient. The American Medical Association has found that Calcium reverses
numerous cancers along with hundreds of other benefits. This is why we at
LifeSource say that proper nutrition is the key to a longer & healthier
life, and it is not just a slogan to sell supplements.*
Why are there so many different Coral Calcium options to buy?
Genuine Coral is expensive to harvest, ship, and process properly. The
stores and the web are filled with brands, which cut corners such as:
blending the Okinawan coral with other forms of calcium or coral from other
parts of the world. Selling low-grade coral or high lead content coral.
Selling it in caplet form, which is not absorbable due to binding agents
and fillers is very prevalent. Capsules are much better utilized by humans.
Our Coral Calcium is truly 100% pure, we add nothing to the Coral Calcium,
nothing. Just pure Above-Sea Coral Calcium. One suggestion that we have is
not to buy "Cheap Coral". It is not a bargain. It is not the real thing,
and can be harmful to your health due to other ingredients that may be
What does Coral Calcium really do?
Coral Calcium has indicated helping with over 200 conditions associated
with mineral deficiencies. Studies show that it helps to clean the kidneys,
intestines, and liver while breaking down heavy metals and drug residues in
the body. It balances the pH level of water, which strengthens and
revitalizes cells and tissue, while helping to prevent the risk of
degenerative diseases. Helps achieve an Alkaline Balance, Neutralizing
Acidity Level which increase muscle and joint mobility, combats arthritic
conditions of numerous kinds, fights against heart disease and defends
against digestive problems. Helps prevent sports injuries and heals them
faster if one occurs, stops headaches, stabilizes high or low blood
pressure, and high cholesterol. Studies also indicate relief from
osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcers, eczema, Alzheimer's disease,
Fibromyalgia, muscle cramps, kidney stones, gallstones, gout, chronic
fatigue syndrome, lupus, hypertension, indigestion, psoriasis, ulcerative
colitis, gastroenteritis, hiatal hernia, and cataracts. Also shown to
boosts the immune system, and gives an incredible feeling of well-being,
and increases long-term health if taken appropriately.*
Coral Calcium: Does it work, or is it another super-pill scam?
Coral Calcium is neither a fountain of youth nor a scam. Coral Calcium is
an excellent source of calcium and minerals, which are in an exceptionally
bio-available form. When people lacking calcium and trace minerals finally
absorb them, some exciting benefits may occur creating this fountain of
youth idea. Lab assays show the mineral content is real, hundreds of
doctors now recommend the product. Personal testimonials attesting to
benefits number in the hundreds of thousands. We at LifeSource Vitamins are
proud of our truly pure Coral Calcium, one of the few in the whole industry
that can actually say it and mean it. One should take Coral Calcium with
the expectation that it will support your body like any other excellent
health supplement. Results are the key to any supplement we produce here at
LifeSource, we won’t produce anything that won’t truly help our bodies in
our quest for long-term health, and surpass all similar products on the
There are many different forms of calcium and there is no such thing as a
bad mineral. What you must consider is how much of the calcium can be
absorbed by the body. Some forms, like Calcium lactate and calcium
phosphate, are 5% absorbable in 20 hours, makes good plant fertilizer, but
not the best for the human body. In clinical tests done in Japan, it was
shown that the calcium from Coral Calcium was the most absorbable. The test
compared the calcium from dairy, carbonate (limestone), and coral calcium.
Coral Calcium was shown to be 100% absorbable and the most bioavailable. An
inadequate supply of calcium is thought to play a significant role in
contributing to the development of osteoporosis. Many published studies
show that low calcium intakes are associated with low bone mass, rapid bone
loss, and high fracture rates.*
The Associated Press reported on a study released by the New England
Journal of Medicine that older people can reduce the risk of broken bones
by fifty percent by taking calcium and vitamin D supplements. Researchers
from Tufts University stated that these supplements decrease the rate of
bone turnover - the breaking down and rebuilding cycle - and have a
positive effect on bone density. The people of Okinawa, Japan have been
taking Coral Calcium for hundreds of years. They are living healthy active
lives well into their 90's, and practically disease free. Why, you ask? So
did we, we went straight to the source and this is what our studies showed.
Coral reefs over the millennium formed what is now the Okinawan Islands.
Therefore their food is grown in mineral-rich soil, the water they drink is
loaded with minerals, and they work outside, getting plenty of natural
vitamin D (sunshine). Those are the keys.*

What does water have to do with Calcium deficiency?
Poor quality water may have been acidified by bacteria, algae, chloroform
(from chlorination), nitrates and not least dangerous heavy metals, for
example, cadmium and aluminum. These pollutants may come from factory
discharges, agriculture, sewer pipes, water mains, and acid rain. The
environment of fluids in which your cells reside is known as your
biological terrain. The following are four characteristics of your
biological terrain: pH refers to the "potential of Hydrogen" and its
activity level in fluids. Many people today have an overly acidic pH due to
drinking colas, improper food combinations, and consumption of processed
foods, stress and pollution. Coral Calcium raises the alkalinity of the
extracellular fluid that surrounds your cells. An alkaline, versus acidic,
environment is believed to be one of the major deterrents to tissue damage,
aging and the growth of disease organisms. When your body consists of a
more neutral to an alkaline environment, the body can then use its amazing
God-given ability to heal itself naturally.*
LifeSource Vitamins' Coral Calcium will keep the pH level of your body
fluids in sync so your body can fight disease naturally, the way it was
Method of Action
The method of action for Coral is unknown. Some say it is by regulating
body pH, others claim a homeopathic action, and some espouse a cell salt
theory. We favor the view that the synergy between the minerals found in
coral plus the fact that they have been pre-digested by the coral polyps
and hence in an organic form that is easy to assimilate has more to do with
how it works than anything. Again, the proof is in the results.*
Most Coral Calcium products on the market are from the Japanese region of
Okinawa. A few are beginning to blend coral from other countries in their
formulas without telling the consumer. Some of the countries that either
currently market coral in America or soon will are: Caribbean, India,
Brazil, and China. No blended products are included in our coral products,
just pure Coral Calcium. Over 90% of all Coral Calcium sold in the U.S. has
additives, the way they say pure is that they use pure coral, but have many
other supplements cut into the product.
What about Sango - some say Sango is the best. Actually, Sango is simply a
local Okinawan reference to Coral in general - so all Okinawan Coral is
Sango. Yet another misuse or manipulation of terms by the supplement
All Okinawan Coral is ionized too - that just means it takes on a charge (a
positive one to be specific) so don't be fooled by companies claiming to
have a superior product because it is "Ionized" Coral Calcium. The
important thing is that this ionization makes it far more useable for
humans compared to regular calcium supplements.
Above Sea vs. Below Sea “Marine Grade”, which is better?
There are two sources of Okinawan Coral. Coral which is mined above sea
level and Marine Coral (below-sea) which is vacuumed from the ocean bottom
near the Coral reefs. Which is best, Above-Sea or Below-Sea sourced coral?
Laboratory analysis of the two kinds shows each variety has 74 minerals and
have similar quantities of the minerals. Above-Sea Coral tends to have a
little higher percentage of Calcium - 35 to 38% while the Marine variety
has 20 - 24% calcium. Again, wide swings of percentages are thrown around
by everyone including the so-called expert, and they are simply not true.
So when you read about a company having 500 mg of Coral calcium per
capsule, you know that roughly 1/3 of that is pure calcium. All of it comes
from Okinawan Coral and toxic levels of heavy metals is a non-issue for all
above-sea and almost all below-sea coral.
Last summer, studies done in Okinawa, they unearthed another matter of
concern regarding "Marine" coral - that is the purity of a product that
involves vacuuming the ocean floor, and we found that the Marine vacuuming
process can be damaging to the Coral environment. We obtained raw marine
coral product samples, which have high sand content. This is not all bad as
sand is not toxic or harmful. It is just not a pure coral product. These
impurities are likely the reason Marine Coral has lower calcium content
than fossilized coral. An expert, in our opinion, is Dr. Bruce Halstead MD,
Ph.D. who is better qualified than most on the coral subject, and wrote the
definitive title on Fossilized Coral Stony Minerals, his choice was
Above-Sea sourced coral, which is exactly what LifeSource produces.
Some claim to have "clinical grade" but no explanation is offered as to how
this is different from any other. Coral is a whole food source of calcium
and minerals and there is no standard grading system including "clinical
grade". Something that does matter more is particle size. It comes in a
range of sizes from 2 microns (like flour) up to 44 microns. The smaller,
the better for absorption purposes. True Coral Calcium should disappear in
a glass of water, with no residue on the top of the glass or at the bottom
The Coral formulas on the market are very simple formulations based on Dr.
Carl Reich's work from 1950 through 1992 where he combined Calcium and
Vitamin D to work miracles in patients. This has proven extremely valuable
information for all calcium production and studies. You should always take
your Coral Calcium with your multivitamin, as it has Vitamin D in the
multi. There is no need to add Vitamin D to the Coral Calcium, it takes
away the purity. Just make sure that you take your Coral with your multi a
couple of times a day.
The Hype on Coral Microbes
Although super qualities have been attributed to these microbes, we do not
believe they exist in commercially available coral, if at all. Marine coral
is heat-treated and fossilized coral is ozonated. Both processes will kill
any living microbe. The coral works, but not because of microbes.
