Calcium Absorption and Assimilation - The Best Calcium
"The most suitable and effective calcium supplement
is carbonate calcium which has two types, Aragonite Calcium Carbonate(ACC)
and calcite calcium carbonate(CCC).
They are chemically identical but differ in crystallization
and specific gravity.
The ionization process of the fossilized ACC, which is Aragonite
Calcium Carbonate, is 6 times greater than that of calcite calcium
Other distinctive differences between ACC and CCC are evident when
both of them are oxidized. ACC, which is fossilized coral calcium,
has characteristics of further micro-structured particles, whereas
CCC solidifies or becomes cemented. This may suggest possible cementation
of calcite in the muscles and the nerve systems from other undesirable
In contrast to calcite, ACC becomes condensed in stomach fluids,
which enables better absorption and effective calcium assimilation."
Note: There is a wide spread notion that "A surplus of calcium
can lead to deposits of calcium in tissues other than bone. A deficiency
of calcium weakens the bones and can lead to rickets." This
is described in a typical home medical encyclopedia. Perhaps the
authors of the encyclopedia are talking about calcite calcium carbonate
or he/she might not be aware that two types of calcium carbonate
described in the above exist.
Sugar Dissolves Bones
If you can see affected bones anatomically, which are eroded and
resemble bee-hives, you will be stricken with terror. When diets
having less sugar are followed, fewer bacilli appear in the saliva,
which in turn does not cause decaying.
White sugar is one of the unhealthiest foods on the market. Sugar
may be a major contributing factor to the rising hyperactivity of
school-age children. Sugar depletes calcium in the youngsters and
reduces calcium in the blood, which means more hyperactive and irritable
kids at schools. Sugar also depresses the immune system.
