Calcium from the Sea may very well be the best support your skeletal system has ever received! This dietary supplement is well suited for most vegetarians since all the mineral elements are plant based seaweeds and algae, or processed from the minerals of the sea.
The Importance of Vitamin D
Recent years have focused the importance of vitamin D, and the staggering deficiencies of vitamin D in most of the world’s populations. For years we thought that vitamin D was only to build strong bones. But today, researchers state that vitamin D is necessary from everything to a properly functioning immune system, cognitive function, cardio health, and proper eyesight.*
The liver converts vitamin D to 25-hydroxyvitamin D, and then the kidney converts that to 1,25(OH)D. The body makes these conversions much more efficaciously with cholecalciferol (D3) than with ergocalciferol (D2). While most vegetarians may prefer the plant based ergocalciferol, we had to make a choice, and our choice was to make the best dietary supplement we could and that meant we had to go with cholecalciferol. The reason we state that Calcium from the Sea is suitable for most vegetarians is because most vegetarians choose that for 2 reasons: 1) they don’t believe in cruelty to animals, and/or 2) they don’t want to consume animal proteins or fats. There is no mistreatment of animals in the production of cholecalciferol and there is no animal fat or proteins in the product.Calcium from the Sea is great for all vegetarians.
The Importance of Magnesium
In the body, calcium needs magnesium to be absorbed into the bones. Without magnesium, calcium collects on the soft tissue; i.e.: arteries and heart muscle. There are 2 hormones that regulate where calcium goes in the body; calcitonin and parathyroid hormone (PTH). PTH draws calcium from the bones and deposits it on soft tissue. Calcitonin increases calcium levels in the bones and keeps it from being deposited in the soft tissues. Magnesium suppresses PTH and stimulates calcitonin, therefore absolutely necessary in promoting heart and bone health.* Calcium from the Sea provides the ideal balance of calcium to magnesium for optimal bone strength.*
The Importance of Vitamin K2
Vitamin K2 is another important nutrient that assures calcium ends up in the bones and not in the soft tissues of the body. Vitamin K belongs to the group of fat soluble vitamins. Vitamin K2 does two things. First, it activates a protein in cartilage called Matrix Gla Protein (MGP). This protein is a strong inhibitor of soft tissue calcification. Secondly, it activates osteocalcin, a protein located in bone marrow. This protein stimulates the absorption of calcium into the bone. Calcium from the Sea is great for all, including vegetarians.*
The Importance of Silica
Silica is the most essential non-essential nutrient. It is vital for strong bones, healthy skin and soft tissue. Silica works with all the other dietary components to build strong bones.* Much more detailed information on silica can be found on our SuperSilica Plus.
The Importance of Enzymes
Enzymes are the key to life. Every trillion chemical actions and reactions that take place in the body every day is dependent on an enzyme. In Calcium from the Sea, a special enzyme formula was made that is designed to breakdown plant fiber and release organic minerals into the body.*
