Mother Earth Minerals are IONIC (possessing an electrical charge, drawn to the walls of the intestines), WATER SOLUBLE (highly bio-available angstrom sized ions in an aqueous solution), and CELL-AVAILABLE (available for absorption into the human cell, not only the blood stream). Fewer milligrams are needed because absorption is much more efficient and complete. No additives, fillers, or preservatives. ALKALINE EARTH METALS, (A PH OF 12): Calcium ions stimulate the various biological transmutation processes throughout the human body. It is so vital, that if it is not provided to the human cell daily, ions are borrowed from the body's calcium storehouse, the bones. CALCIUM HELPS TO CONTROL: The movement of nutrients into the cell and is vital in eliminating waste material and toxins from the cells, stimulating the cellular membrane to remain flexible and permeable. CALCIUM IS 99.999% PURE MOTHER EARTH METAL CRYSTALLINE PARTICLES: It is NOT compounded with Carbon (Calcium Carbonate), Citrate, Aspartate, or Coral from the South Pacific. It is absorbed directly into the blood when consumed sublingually. CALCIUM USED IN ALMOST EVERY BODILY FUNCTION: Important for pH balance, tone, power, strength, longevity, vitality and endurance.
