Wholefood Calcium is a natural multimineral seaweed product, harvested from Atlantic waters off Ireland’s south-west coast. It is an organic, wholefood product with no additives.
The seaweed which produces Wholefood Calcium is called lithothamnium calcareum. This is a small, red seaweed composed of a whole array of essential nutrients in a highly bioavailable form, including high levels of calcium, magnesium, boron and zinc. The waters from which this seaweed is harvested are some of the cleanest and purest in the world, and hence there is no risk of heavy metals or pollutants.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and the fifth most abundant substance overall. It is absorbed into your body with the help of vitamin D, the best source of vitamin D being sunlight. Almost all of the body's calcium (2-3 pounds) is found in the bones and teeth. 20% of an adult's bone calcium is reabsorbed and replaced every year.
What does it do?
The absorption of calcium takes place in the duodenum (small intestine) and ceases in the lower part of the intestinal tract when food content becomes too alkaline. Like all vitamins and minerals, calcium relies on the presence of other vitamins and minerals to be absorbed.
Calcium and phosphorus work together for healthy bones and teeth; the ratio of calcium to phosphorus in the bones is 2.5:1.
Calcium and magnesium work together for cardiovascular health and bone formation. The balance of these two minerals is crucial, and is reflected in their effect on muscles. To function properly, calcium must be accompanied by magnesium, phosphorus and vitamins A, C, D and E.
Vitamin D helps absorb calcium into the body. About 1 hour of sunlight per month on the hands and face has been shown to provide most people with sufficient active vitamin D. Vitamin D works with the parathyroid hormone to regulate the amount of calcium in the blood.
