GreenCALCIUM is the ideal all-natural calcium superfood, providing you with an easily absorbed, elemental calcium that is so crucial for long term health, bone density and strength. Our calcium supplements in calcium powder or tablet form make it convenient and simple to use.
Adequate dietary intake of calcium:
Helps ensure the proper functioning of muscles and nerves
Keeps the heart beating
Helps blood clotting and regulates blood pressure
Assists with metabolising iron
Combats effects of diets high in alcohol, caffeine, certain phosphates (found in soft drinks) and animal proteins – that can reduce the body’s ability to absorb calcium
GreenCALCIUM is made using 100% organicLithothamnium calcareummarine plant from the South West coast of Ireland and the North West coast of Iceland that contains 34% elemental calcium and 72 other trace minerals.
After a five-year life span spent absorbing essential minerals from the Atlantic waters, this calcium-rich plant calcifies naturally and settles on the sea bed from which it is sustainably harvested, taken ashore and washed, dried and crushed.
Nothing else is added.
As only the mature/aged material is harvested - not the live young plant, sustainability is assured.
Pleasant tasting and easily mixed in drinks or added to any food, just one level teaspoon (2.8g) serving ofGreenCALCIUM powder provides over950mg of elemental calciumin a natural multi-mineral food-matrix.
For your covenience,GreenCALCIUM is also available in convenient 100% vegetable capsules - two (2) capsules provides600mg of elemental calcium.
GreenCALCIUMis a 100% plant-source of calcium,isHIGHLY ALKALINE(pH10) and supports body alkalinity, providesMAXIMUM ABSORPTIONand bio-availablity of calcium in the body, isALL NATURAL.
GreenCALCIUM is the richest natural plant-source of calcium available, is highly alkaline (pH10) and is vegetarian, vegan and paleo friendly.
Why is calcium so important?
Calcium is essential for building and maintaining bone. Almost all the body's calcium (about 99%) is found in the bones.
Our bodies cannot make calcium, so it must come from the foods we eat. When you are not getting sufficient amounts of calcium in your diet, some of the calcium crystals in bone dissolve and give their calcium back to the bloodstream.
Calcium intake is important, but it's how well the calcium is absorbed into bones and teeth that's most critical.
Calcium absorption may be reduced by excessive caffeine and alcohol, soft drinks containing phosphates, and diets high in animal proteins.
OPTIMUM BONE DENSITY
Peak bone density is reached by the age of 30 and most of this is achieved by puberty when there is the greatest rate of bone growth. Calcium is essential for:
maintaining total body health
normal growth and development
keeping your bones and teeth strong over your lifetime (they contain 99% of the body's calcium, the remaining 1% is in blood)
ensuring the proper functioning of muscles and nerves
keeping the heart beating
helping blood clotting and regulating blood pressure
the action of a number of hormones (particularly those associated with the thyroid and parathyroid glands)
absorption of vitamin B12
DO WE NEED VITAMINS D and K?
YES. Vitamins D and K are important nutritional co-factors in calcium metabolism and absorption – vitamin D is naturally produced in the skin from mild exposure to sunlight; this mechanism is thought to be un-reliable though as the process takes place in the sebum, and washing the skin soon after exposure may negate the process. Vitamin D is also obtained from eating foods such as tuna, salmon, sardines, egg yolks or cheese. Vitamin D is stored effectively in the body for use in calcium metabolism.
Similarly, vitamin K is important and best obtained from foods such green peas, carrots, green beans, broccoli, kale and mustard greens - the best source of vitamin K isHawaiian PacificaSpirulinawhich provides 60mcg in one 3g serve.
GreenCALCIUM is well absorbed and utilised in the body due to the following 3 special features:
1)It has a unique porous 'honeycomb-like' structure which reacts particularly well in the digestive system giving it enhanced absorption properties.
2)Its molecule has a very large surface area which allows faster solubilisation and rapid ionisation of the calcium, resulting in better absorption.
3)It contains other important minerals necessary for the absorption of calcium including magnesium, boron, selenium, zinc, strontium and iodine.
All these pure, plant minerals are in the balance Nature originally intended for enhanced assimilation.
