Dr. Jeff has been researching and using Alka-Line Coral Calcium in his natural health clinic since 1995. Look for his soon to be published book on coral calcium late this year. Read below what Dr. Bennert has to say about the many brands of coral calcium.

There are many brands of coral calcium on the market today, so which is best? I have tried many other brands and capsule forms of coral calcium with my clients over the years and none have shown to be as effective as RBC's Alka-Line Coral Calcium Gold. I have had the privilege of sharing my knowledge with many people over the years. Most of the information you read today on coral calcium was originally written by us using RBC's Alka-Line Coral Calcium products. In 1996 we shared our knowledge with a man by the name of Robert Barefoot. Barefoot has done a great job of sharing the knowledge about coral calcium with thousands of people.
Many people ask why other companies do not sell sachet or "tea bag" forms of coral since we claim it is such a superior quality. To put it simply, higher quality equals higher prices. Most companies would rather spend less and make more money than truly help people. Most other companies sell the coral calcium in a 2:1 ratio of coral calcium and magnesium. The problem with this is that "coral calcium" is not made entirely of calcium. Sango Coral Calcium is not found in a 2:1 calcium/magnesium ratio in nature. Most of the calcium is actually an organic form of calcium that comes from the algae that grows in porous coral. Since coral calcium is not purely calcium then the 2:1 ratio sold by other companies is actually extremely higher in magnesium than calcium.
There are also many coral calcium powders used in many different capsule formulas that have not been approved for sale in Japan due to the fact that they contain harmful materials such as lead, mercury, arsenic and more. RBC's Coral Calcium goes through a 24hour patented washing system to eliminate all harmful material. This clean coral calcium comes only from Marine Bio Co., Ltd. Marine Bio Co., Ltd is the only company approved to sell coral in Japan, so other companies must rely on the U.S. market to sell their products. There are many imitations to this name, so read the name of the supplier for competitor products closely.
Remember that the Okinawans, who lived over 120 years of age, drank water that had percolated through the raw fossilized Sango Coral that contained organic minerals that are algae based. Not coral that has been powdered, altered, manipulated, or containing added ingredients such as extra magnesium, vitamin D, mushrooms, digestive acids (HCL) etc. Sachets are the closest to the original form, used by the Okinawan Centurions, that is available today. Have you ever heard the saying, "If it isn't broke, don't try to fix it."? Why are all these "so called experts" changing the original coral that worked for the Okinawans for hundreds of years?"
Sachets or pills?

We recommend our Coral Calcium Gold sachets over any other coral calcium on the market including our own caplet form. WHY?, it's all about pH and ORP.
One thing that makes coral calcium the best calcium supplement is that it raises the pH to help make your body alkaline. When you consume any pill the body must use stomach acid to digest it and therefore produce acidity. Our Coral Calcium Gold is placed into water and requires no digestion. Your body will begin to absorb the minerals the second it enters your mouth and a majority of the minerals will be absorbed before it ever enters the lower stomach, therefore optimizing the alkaline effects. When a pill is digested the body uses stomach acids with a pH of 2 (extreme acidity) so the alkalinity of the coral is canceled out by the acidity in the stomach. Also, the water treated with the coral calcium sachets can be used when making coffee, tea, juices etc. This will eliminate the acidity in these common drinks and also make them calcium fortified. Alka-Line Coral Calcium and Coral Calcium Gold will not change the flavor of water so make every beverage using water with Coral Calcium Gold or Alka-Line Coral Calcium treated water to ensure all you drink is safer for your body. When your body is alkaline it does not pull calcium from the bones and other body functions helping to prevent many illnesses.
ORP is the antioxidant potential of the water or fluid you're drinking. ORP measures the number of free hydrogen electrons or electron donors that are released into the fluid. These free electrons are measured in (-)millivolts. The higher the (-)millivolt reading the larger the number of free electrons or more potent the antioxidant power. You lose this potential when you process coral calcium into powder. Studies have shown that these two very important factors are dramatically neutralized when the coral calcium is altered from its original state in nature. Our Alka-Line Coral Calcium and Coral Calcium Gold are taken directly from the ocean floor and are not altered in any way other than a distilled water wash that is used to remove harmful metals like lead and mercury.
Why do other companies not sell the superior sachet form? Remember that RBC retains the exclusive world-wide marketing rights to the original sachet form of Sango Coral Calcium from Marine Bio Co., Ltd.
