The body must reduce every form of calcium into its ionized form in order to absorb it. Since coral minerals contain calcium that is already ionized, the body can use the calcium immediately without having to break it down. This is great news for the elderly and those with poor digestion. A key role of ionized calcium is to neutralize harmful acidic compounds anywhere in the body, before damage takes place. Ionized calcium is critical to cleansing. Even a great herbal detox won't work very well without ionized calcium.
If the body's pH becomes acidic, it becomes harder and harder for the body to uptake other nutrients, such as minerals, vitamins or herbs. The key is to re-establish the proper acid / alkaline balance of your body. An acidic pH creates a hostile internal environment, making the body struggle to get the nutrients it needs. As the body's pH comes into better balance (pH 6.4 to 7.0), your body can easily assimilate minerals that were very difficult to absorb at a more acid pH. To measure your own urine pH, use graduated pH tape.
We call coral minerals the "Gateway Factor" because as it begins to correct the deep-seated acid / alkaline imbalance in the body, it can potentiate (like a "gateway") the uptake of other nutrients (in food or supplements). Once the acid / alkaline balance moves back into a more optimal range, nutrients are more accessible and uptake is greater.
