Pharmacology

Calcium Gluconate is the gluconate salt of calcium. An element or mineral necessary for normal nerve, muscle, and cardiac function, calcium as the gluconate salt helps to maintain calcium balance and prevent bone loss when taken orally. This agent may also be chemopreventive for colon and other cancers.

The Calcium Carbonate from Coral has a chemical structure that is very similar to the composition of human bone. Coral Calcium is similar to other sources but ensures better absorption. Vitamin D3 aids in the absorption of Calcium from GI tract and helps to maintain Calcium balance in the body. Calcium is used as a pharmacological agent in humans almost entirely to remedy the deficiency. Adequate calcium in the blood is so vital to a wide variety of bodily functions that our internal biochemistry will not tolerate a deficiency even for short periods.

Vitamin C is an essential component of the diet as humans cannot synthesize Vitamin C. It is a very powerful reducing agent and plays an important part in the response of the body to stress. It is important in the defense against infections.

Vitamin D is also essential for healthy bones as it aids in calcium absorption from the GI tract. In addition to this it stimulates bone formation. Clinical studies show that calcium and vitamin D has synergistic effects on bone growth as well as in osteoporosis and fracture prevention.
