Okinawa Coral Calcium or Brazilian Coral?

The coral calcium market is dominated by Okinawa coral calcium and Brazilian coral calcium.  There are two sources of Okinawa coral calcium, above sea coral calcium and below sea coral calcium.  Below sea coral calcium is vacuumed from the ocean floor near the delicate coral reefs.  Above sea coral calcium is coral that lived under water hundreds of years ago and then has been naturally deposited on the islands of Okinawa.  The coral is preserved under layers of soil until mined to create above sea coral calcium products without harming the environment.

Laboratory analysis of the two kinds of Okinawa corals show that each variety have similar mineral content.  Above sea coral calcium tends to have a little higher percentage of Calcium - 35 to 38% while the below sea coral has 20 - 24% calcium.

Brazilian Coral

There is now a new category of coral calcium that is not from Okinawa.  This new coral calcium is harvested live as it washes up on the beaches of Northern Brazil.  The certificates of analysis on this product show it has more than 12 times the trace mineral content of Okinawan coral calcium.

Brazilian coral calcium is cold processed therefore retaining more of the marine nutrients, proteins, amino acids and phyto-nutrients.
