The Benefits of Okinawa Sea Coral Minerals
Okinawa sea coral minerals are increasingly recognized for their unique set of nutrients that are easy for the body to use. Sourced from the sea around Okinawa, Japan, these minerals stand out from typical supplements, especially in areas like bone health.
In this article, we aim to provide an in-depth examination of the scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of Okinawa sea coral minerals. We will investigate their distinct composition and how their unique properties can help benefit health.
What are the Benefits of Okinawa Sea Coral Minerals
- Promotes bone health: Okinawa sea coral minerals are rich in calcium, which is essential for strong bones and teeth. They may also help to prevent conditions such as osteoporosis.
- Supports healthy digestion: Okinawa sea coral minerals have alkalizing properties, which can help to balance the pH levels in the body and promote healthy digestion. They may also help to relieve heartburn and acid reflux.
- Boosts immune system: Okinawa sea coral minerals contain a variety of trace minerals that are essential for a healthy immune system. These minerals can help to protect the body against infection and disease.
- Reduces inflammation: Okinawa sea coral minerals have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. This may be beneficial for people with conditions such as arthritis, asthma, and heart disease.
- Improves skin health: Okinawa sea coral minerals contain minerals such as magnesium and zinc, which are essential for healthy skin. They may help to reduce acne, eczema, and other skin conditions.
About Health Factory Okinawa Sea Coral Minerals
To ensure immaculate clean and pure water, Okinawa Sea Coral Minerals are only harvested from reef-building coral of the Nansei Islands. This water naturally contains a high mineral content due to the fact that it’s constantly being filtered through the coral remains that contain large amounts of elements and minerals.
This is further enhanced by the topography of the area as it’s one of the largest land-masses of volcanic origin. This harvesting is conducted under very strict government regulations. Only already dead and fossilised coral is harvested.
Thanks to the coral’s unique growth patterns - distinctive and idiosyncratic sideways projections, the careful coordination of the harvest is able to take place without damaging the live coral.
The coral is able to be rejuvenated and flourishes thanks to the ability the coral has to remove marine coral sand from the area around the coral reefs. The remaining coral is protected when new sideways projections grow.
The minerals and organic elements within Okinawa are the vitality of the product and are preserved thanks to the care and techniques that have been perfected over thousands of years.
These techniques are respectfully adhered to by us, keeping our Okinawa minerals as close in composition to the original living form of coral as possible. The mineral contains calcium and magnesium in the perfect ‘golden ratio’ which is ideal for the human diet, the ratio being calcium to magnesium 2:1.
Sadly, many other marine coral products fail to reach the quality of our Okinawa coral even though they may be sold claiming to be high quality. These other products usually come in tablet form and are mostly coral sand left on the ocean floor, containing fillers and preserving chemicals.
Coral is graded by Okinawans based on a high ‘magnesium content’. Our Okinawa coral is one of the highest in magnesium content having 11,000,000 mcg (11,000 mg) of magnesium in every 100 grams of coral.
The calcium levels in 100 grams of Okinawa minerals is 22,800,000 (22,800 mg) making the 2:1 ratio almost perfect. These 2 elements are present in a form that is fully bioavailable and used by the body.
Okinawa Sea Coral Minerals Is a Revolutionary Calcium and Magnesium Complex
When the Okinawa is added to water or sprinkled on food, the vast majority of all the minerals become ionic and can be fully absorbed and used by the body. When entering the stomach, a large percentage of the mineral becomes ionized and ready to be used by the body within 10-20 minutes even though the calcium present is calcium carbonate.
Minerals are needed for all living cells as they provide structure and function for the cells. They are also needed for composition of body fluids as well as blood and function of the bone, teeth, muscles, supporting nerve function, muscle tone and cardiovascular system. Minerals also act as important coenzymes which allow the body to perform biochemical functions such as energy production, growth healing and utilisation of vitamins and minerals.
A substantial amount of calcium and magnesium become ionic when added to water. Okinawa minerals in ionized forms carry a positive electrical charge, meaning these minerals are very energetic and active in the body. Thanks to calcium and magnesium being alkali metals, they have an alkalizing effect and raise the pH of the body substantially. Studies have shown that this can increase the strength of our immune systems as these bioavailable nutrients are needed for the tissue, cells, sub-cellular structures and molecules in living organisms.
Another mechanism that gives the coral minerals an advantage is the presence of chelated mineral atoms, the electrical charges of these chelated minerals allow for faster absorption in the body. Chelated minerals are a class of complex compounds with a central metal atom.
Many other brands offer mineral supplements in tablet form or have inferior coral mineral extractions which are not bioavailable. This causes a major disadvantage because the tablets must reach the stomach first, to be digested and used by the body. Therefore it’s hard to know how much is being absorbed, especially if the stomach is compromised by Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and various autoimmune diseases.
Some supplements use cheap low-grade calcium carbonate which is also used extensively as fillers in food products, cosmetics, dental products and many other supplements on the market. This calcium carbonate is mostly mined from Limestone and ground to size.
Limestone deposits are so abundant that they will never become exhausted and will be used for many years to come. However, calcium carbonate in this form can be damaging to the kidneys and liver, especially if not balanced with Vitamin D3, magnesium and other essential and ionic minerals and trace elements.
Why should everybody use Okinawa sea coral minerals?
Firstly, the minerals from Okinawa sea coral have a highly bioavailable form, meaning they are easily absorbed by the body. This could lead to more effective results compared to conventional mineral supplements.
Secondly, these minerals have been researched for their potential role in bone health. They offer a balanced ratio of calcium to magnesium, which is crucial for maintaining strong bones and teeth.
Thirdly, the broad spectrum of trace elements present in these minerals contributes to various physiological processes, potentially offering a more holistic approach to nutritional supplementation.
Lastly, the minerals are sourced sustainably, thus providing an eco-friendly option for those concerned about environmental impact.
Recommended Dosage of Okinawa Sea Coral Minerals
For regular adult use, a dosage of 2 to 3 grams per day is recommended. This can be dispersed across 2 to 3 scoops and dissolved in water, juice, smoothies, or yogurt.
For ongoing maintenance, a reduced intake of 1 to 2 grams per day is advisable.
For children, a much lower dose of 0.5 to 1 gram per day is recommended, equating to 0.5 to 1 scoops.
In instances of early cavities, the product can be applied directly to the affected area.
How Sustainable are Okinawa sea coral minerals?
Okinawa sea coral minerals are sustainably sourced, meaning they are eco-friendly. The minerals come from "dead rampant coral," so no living coral is harmed. This also allows new coral to grow in the sea. Each batch is thoroughly tested to make sure it's free from any harmful stuff from the sea. The product is also 100% pure and doesn't have any added chemicals or fillers. So, you can use these minerals knowing they are both good for you and good for the environment.
