GREEN NUTRITIONALS Green Calcium Powder is a Pure plant-source of calcium.
A unique wholefood source of natural calcium, Green calcium is an organic marine plant (Lithothamnium calcareum) naturally rich in natural rich in elemental calcium, magnesium and 72 other trace minerals crucial for optimum calcium absorption and bone health.
Green calcium powder contains 34% elemental calcium and has a unique porous ‘honeycomb-like’ structure and the large surface area that allows for greater absorption and utilisation of calcium in the body.
Although Green calcium powder is an excellent source of plant calcium (1 level teaspoon provides over 950mg elemental calcium), it is really a multi-mineral complex. It provides 72 other trace minerals, all contributing to bone health and general well-being.
Minerals such as magnesium and zinc are essential minerals and are present in Green calcium together with trace minerals such as boron, iodine, selenium and strontium. These minerals are all absorbed naturally by the live marine plant from the clear, cold pollution free, mineral rich Atlantic waters and the presence of these trace minerals in Green calcium contribute to the high bio-availability of the calcium in our bodies.
Pleasant tasting and easily mixed in drinks or added to any food, just one level teaspoon (2.8g) serving of Green calcium powder provides over 950mg of elemental calcium in a natural multi-mineral food-matrix.
Green calcium is a 100% plant-source of calcium, is HIGHLY ALKALINE (pH 10) and supports body alkalinity, provides MAXIMUM ABSORPTION and bio-availablity of calcium in the body, is ALL NATURAL and contains;
Green calcium is the richest natural plant-source of calcium available, is highly alkaline (pH10) and is vegetarian, vegan and paleo friendly.
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:
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 is Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina which provides 60mcg in one 3g serve.
