What is Above-Sea Land-based EcoSafe™ Coral?
Hundreds of years ago, the “above-sea” coral was a thriving reef. It was geologically pushed up above sea level, free from the ocean pollution that resulted from the Industrial Revolution and the modern-day pollutants that have followed. Coral LLC collects pristine, white fossilized coral heads from these same reefs, which are protected beneath a layer of soil. After the coral rocks are collected, they are taken to a cGMP-certified grinding facility where they undergo a three-stage grinding and sterilization process of purification.
The above-sea coral that Coral LLC uses to produce coral mineral supplements does not contain any of the pollutants—such as , chemicals, fertilizers, etc.—found in the planet’s now-contaminated oceans.
There is no health advantage to harvesting coral from below the sea. Below-sea coral, sometimes referred to as marine grade coral, is less than pure. It can contain shell remnants and seafloor debris among other impurities. Perhaps more problematic, though, is the harvesting process for below-sea coral, which is actually harmful to young marine life. This type of coral is actually vacuumed from the bottom of the sea. Young marine organisms use coral and other nearby items that are taken from the reef as shelter to hide from predators as they grow. Harvesting this coral often means damage to the delicate reef ecosystem.
All of Coral LLC’s mineral products, from coral calcium powder to Coral White toothpaste, may not only beneficial to your health, but are also produced in an eco-friendly manner.
