Studies have shown that the vast majority of women take
some form of supplements every day. Even if you are one of
the rare few one doesn’t, you probably have a loved one
who does and could benefit from your simply forwarding
Now, the problem is not that women are taking
In fact, in this day and age, with the proven decline in the
nutritional value of mass commercialized foods, including
even fruits and vegetables, proper supplementation is vital
for maintaining a healthy, vibrant, and energetic lifestyle.
One of the mistakes people tend to make (and it’s an
understandable one) is that if a supplement is a “brand
name” then it must be high quality.
Sadly, nothing could be further from the truth. A lot of
questions surround Coral Calcium in particular, which by
itself, is an excellent supplement for a variety of reasons.
Some of its benefits include; maintaining healthy bones and
teeth, staving off osteoporosis, the proper functioning of the
heart, and helping nutrients properly disperse throughout
the body, to where they are needed.
The problem, however, is that both government and private
organizations have shown that you only have a 1 in 5
chance of actually buying a product that has the amount of
ingredients stated on the label, or one that does not contain
Shocking, isn’t it?
You may have heard of Coral Calcium and Robert Barefoot.
Many suppliers of Coral Calcium use his image, name, and
all claim to sell his “special,” “approved” formula. This is
nonsense because all of them have different formulas, and
often use different grade Coral Calcium.
One of the best known and biggest sellers of these brands is
called “Coral Calcium Supreme,” which many women
Again, women assume that because it’s a brand name (and
therefore costs a lot) it must be good.
But you have to be cautious and know that Barefoot’s name
on a product in itself doesn’t amount to much of anything,
except a higher price tag, and certainly doesn’t speak to
consumerlabs.com, a private company whose mission is to
independently test various supplements to see if they have
what they contain, came back with this shocking conclusion,
and to quote:
“ConsumerLab.com reported today that 20% of the calcium
supplements it recently evaluated failed testing. One of
those that failed is the much hyped Coral Calcium
“Supreme” which, coincidentally, was also the subject of
government action today for false advertising.
Reasons for products failing the Calcium Review included
excessive lead, too little calcium, and inability to fully break
down (needed for absorption).”
Lead is a well known toxin that can lead to neurological
dysfunction and damage. And wouldn’t you be angry to find
out, even if it not contaminated, it didn’t have the amount
of ingredients that you PAID for?
So, why do many supplement companies do this? Coral
Calcium “Supreme” is certainly not the exception, but the
Well, for one thing, it’s much cheaper for them if they don’t
have to subject their products to a rigorous manufacturing
process that ensures there are no contaminants. They also
do not adhere to a certificate of analysis that shows their
products actually contain the amount of ingredients stated
on the label.
They’re hoping that, you, the consumer, is never the wiser.
In short, cheaper product manufacturing means more
money in the pocket for them.
All, nutritional supplements are supposed to enhance your
health, NOT impair it.
The bottom line is: whatever products you take, you should
investigate very carefully the company that manufactures
This is also why I feel so strongly about recommending
certain natural products from a company in New Zealand.
The whole company’s history and mission was founded on
producing an honest line of supplements, under the most
rigorous manufacturing requirements in the world, far
exceeding U.S. FDA standards.
They subject their Coral Calcium with Phytonutrients
product, for example, to not only the most stringent
manufacturing requirements, but also provide a certificate
of analysis for each batch produced, which means it is
independently tested to be free of contaminants and have
what is stated on the label.
I’ve only received positive feedback from women who use
this coral calcium product, and I can confidently recommend
them in the highest regard.
You may like to check out the company’s history, facts, and
mission. I think you will realize, as I did, what an exception
to the rule they are when it comes to nutritional
