Is there a Coral Calcium expert in the house


Is there a Coral Calcium expert in the house

The TV says you have to buy theirs as all others suck.

Do they?

I can buy Nature’s Bounty coral calcium plus at Walmart for about $6 for 60, a months supply at 2 per day.

It’s 1000 mg of mined coral calcium with 5mg of vitamin C, 400 i.u. of vitamin D and 56 mg of magnesium per 2 caps. Also says it contains over 72 trace minerals.

While it contains 1000 mg of coral calcium, it says the actual calcium is 370 mg, does that mean it’s 37% bioavailable or what? I seem to remember this number having importance from the barefoot infomercial…

$6 is much nicer than $20+… Hell I could even take 4 a day and save money, plus buy it locally.

Any thoughts?

I believe that both are coral and couldn’t be much different considering they both are natural ground coral reef. This is only my personal opinion so don’t take this as fact.


I know Bob Baresfoot is in trouble with the government for making too many promises for the product.

I saw a product that I thought was identical to his at Walgreen’s but it was also $20 bucks.

This question is right down Southpaw’s alley.

Coral calcium has far more impurities in it compared to other calcium supplements since it is made from sand that was originally coral. Harvesting of coral is not allowed anywhere, so they get it from the beach or mine.

Someone asked about this calcium supplement on a radio show here a few weeks ago.. The answer to which is better, is that Calcium Citrate is better, and less expensive.

Why is calcium citrate supposedly better? I thought Coral was the most absorbable and bioavailable…

MDC is right. As far as calcium goes whats important is the bio-availability of the calcium in the particular molecular form you take. The citrate form is most bio-avalable. The other important factor is getting enough magnesium. You need magnesium to use calcium. I believe the minimum ratio is 1:12 magnesium to calcium. The most bio-available form of magnesium is magnesium glycinate. Its like 80% bio-avalable versus less than 25% for the next best form. Both calcium and magnesium are stored in the body. There is a daily requirement but its been shown that when we have been shy of that requirement for a long time our cellular stores get depleted and the body gets jealous of it. So for those people (pretty surely all American-Daniels Midland diet eaters) it is helpful to re-charge with large amounts of calcium and magnesium. And it can take months and months to re-charge. For many supplements taking heavy doses just means expensive urine, but for these two, given their minimal toxicity and storage ability, loading up can be good. But don’t up the calcium without the magnesium.

They key is when you take a bunch for a week or two do you feel better? Nearly everybody recognizes some benefits from a loading up period of calcium and magnesium. Barefoot trumpets alot of these. Better carb metabolism and blood sugar control, more even mood, better sleep, better athletic performance, etc. Cures all cancers? Dubious, but in some cases it might help.

So is there a good cheap source of the combination you mentioned anywhere?

>But don’t up the calcium without the magnesium.<

The usual recommendation for supplementing is 2:1 calcium to magnesium. Rakishly is right. Low magnesium can cause all kinds of problems, from muscle spasms to heart arrhythmia.

I don’t know. I’m currently using up some coral calcium I bought to try. I do take extra magnesium glycinate. Cheap is an interesting term. If you’re just popping 1000mg glycinate versus 1000mg other forms (oxide is cheap and poor) glycinate tabs are expensive. But if your measuring how much elemental magnesium you are getting, then glycinate is twice as expensive for four times the punch. So the 90 cap bottle will dent the wallet but its actually two times cheaper. Always look at for best prices on bulk supps. Although they’re often powder rather than tabs.

If you’re investing in making Atkins more successful and recovery from HIIT easier, then they’re really worth the money at typical prices. When you think about it they’re worth many times the money. You can cover yourself for the month for the price of two or three mixed bar drinks with tip. That’s about 30 bucks here in Boston. So skip a night at the watering hole and give doing twice as good at Atkins a shot.

Everybody always focuses on the money rather than the real cost: commitment of cycles, effort and time spent on other things (usually self-absorbed fretting-I’m guilty here lol). Like the Cunningham stuff. To learn what’s in there you need to expect to commit 15 hours listening and re-listening to the tapes 5 times over three months, 10 hours reading and referring to the notes five times, 20 of mental practice and cogitating, and 50 hours of trial and error using the stuff…and um, oh yeah 90 bucks. Same with PE, and diet and exercise.

How many milligrams of calcium/magnesium are you taking per day? Is it regulated by body weight, or just a general recommendation?

I’m taking 4,000 mg of coral calcium which yields 1,500mg elemental calcium, and 330mg elemental of magnesium from glycinate. I’ll probably cut the calcium down some after the coral is gone. I also take 5-10 grams of an even blend of fish oil, borage oil and evening primrose oil. THAT I wouldn’t do without. Major, major skin, health and mood effects for me from that. Other than that I take a high bioavalable viatmin and mineral supplemtent.

ok, the bottle I have says magnesium oxide and magnesium citrate…. worthless?

I also take fish oil, but I get the 6’s and 3’s from diet and canola…

Yeah, I’ve been taking fish oil daily for a couple months now. My skin has improved. Fish oil is a good source of Omega-3’s. It’s better than flax oil because fish oil contains EPA and DHA. Flax has to be converted to these, and conversion rates vary.

Here’s one of many webpages on the topic. I highly recommend fish oil. It’s not expensive either. 300 1 gram capsules cost about $6 at Costco or Sam’s Club.

I started taking fish oil concentrate recently. Nothing to report other than it smells fishy when you open the bottle. :)

I think fish oil is one of those not gonna make you feel any different, just something your body really really needs.

You’ll feel the same taking it as not, up to the point where you drop of a heart attack or stroke from not taking it :)
