Superior Calcium Versus Inferior Calcium in Coral Calcium Products
With the growing variety of products emerging in the Coral Calcium market, one should know several facts before choosing which supplement to buy.
Since the onsept of the introduction of CoralMin in 1998 for the US Market, we use the word, CoralMin representing coral Minerals powder. However, majority of the promotors and distributors of CoralMin has used the word, Coral Calcium in order to appeal to general public to receive instant acceptant of the word of Calcium which also heavy advertised by pharmaceutical and dairy industries. The word, calcium is almost household name connecting with bone development but the word of minerals is forgotten among consumers, and many of them think Calcium is alone to serve their needs but actually total minerals of 75 elements are working together synergestically including trace minerals which is forgotten vital minerals rather than heavily promoted vitamins which require minerals as basic ingredient of vitamin supplements.
What is the difference between our Coral Calcium and others?
CoralMin" is the only Coral Calcium that shows an Aragonite-crystalline structure when viewed via x-ray diffraction or when viewed using other analytical instruments. CoralMin" is also the only product in the world that contains non-calcined coral minerals, meaning only low temperatures are used in the heating process. The natural inherit and kinetic energy elements found in Fossilized Coral Minerals can be altered and/or destroyed depending on how they are processed, so the preservation of these properties requires low temperatures when heating. Unlike other makers of calcium products that use high temperatures, the properties of the calcium found in CoralMin" are guaranteed to remain pure and unchanged.
Studies have recently shown that calcium deposits and/or ingesting inferior Coral Calcium might be responsible for the abnormal hardening of soft tissues such as the heart valves, kidney stones, bone spur, etc. It is time to research and study how different crystalline structures affect our bodies on the synergistic level. More of this kind of clinical research is long overdue.
The following tests clearly show the differences between Aragonite (ACC) and Calcite (CCC) calcium. In other words, this test shows the differences between the Aragonite-structured Coral Calcium (Superior Calcium) and Calcite-structured Coral Calcium (Inferior Calcium)
1) Both of the Coral Calcium mentioned are chemically identical but differ in crystallization. The Aragonite Crystalline (ACC) structure is rhombus (orthorhombic), whereas Calcite (CCC) has a Trigonal-Hexagonal Scalenohedral Shape.
2) Water Soluble Test
Here are the results of Aragonite Coral Calcium (ACC) and Calcite Coral Calcium (CCC) in 100ml of distilled water for four (4) days after filtration. The filtration paper and residues were heated using a platinum crucible, and the residue material was then weighed after the remaining CO2 and filtered paper were removed.

Cementation Function of Test (Calcium Deposit)
As far as we know, nobody has revealed information concerning this crucial test. US manufacturers of calcium supplements may have conducted such tests, but if they have, they have certainly not made their test results known to the public.
Test Results of cementation:
- Aragonite Coral Calcium (ACC) - There is no cementation (No calcium deposit)
- Calcite Coral Calcium (CCC) - There is cementation
Mixtures of sand were made with the soil containing iron and Alumina. Then different amounts of aragonite powder and calcite powder were added respectively into the mixture and were mixed well. 3-4 days passed, exposing the mixture to the surrounding air.
The results: Aragonite (ACC) did not possess any cementation or solidifying effects. Calcite (CCC), however, possessed solidifying properties. This may help explain why Calcite is used as one of the raw materials involved with cement production!
Based on the above results, there is a strong indicator a co-relationship between calcium deposits in our body and Calcite (CCC) exists, while there is no cementation effect with Aragonite (ACC) in the body.
There have been hundreds of people taking CoralMin" for the past 10 years and nobody has experienced any of the cementation effects that the consumers of other calcium products have been complaining about. Even in extreme cases, such as people taking 30 grams of CoralMin" on a daily basis, there were no signs of cementation. Other consumers using different coral calcium products have had different results. They have other stories to share with the public due to the cementation effect linked with the Calcite (CCC) type of calcium.
Please don't take a chance with your body. Research your coral calcium and ask questions. Don't settle for anything that might prove to be of inferior quality.
