Calcium Physiology

Importance of Calcium

Providing structure for bones and teeth is the most obvious role of calcium in humans, but calcium has other functions that are even more essential. Calcium has a unique binding ability, enabling it to stabilize the 3 dimensional structure of many enzymes and other proteins. Calcium release into the interior of cells is also an important signaling mechanism, controlling functions as diverse as muscle contraction to normal cell death. Calcium is the most important signal transduction molecule in nature, with essential functions in plants, bacteria and animals.

Calcium Absorption

Calcium is absorbed by either active or passive transport mechanisms. Active transport of calcium is mediated by vitamin D and involves a specific calcium binding protein, Calbindin. Active calcium transport is a saturable process, that is—only a limited amount of calcium can be absorbed by that method because the transporter is easily overwhelmed by larger amounts of calcium. However, at low levels of calcium intake, the active transport is extremely important, because it can absorb a very high percentage of small amounts of calcium. Passive calcium transport is simply diffusion across the intestinal mucosa. Passive diffusion is possible for calcium ions and non-ionized calcium such as calcium carbonates and citrates, which must be ionized in the gut for active absorption.


Factors that Increase Calcium Absorption
Vitamin D Calcium Deficiency
Phosphorus Deficiency Pregnancy
Lactation Mucosal Permeability


Factors that Decrease Calcium Absorption
Vitamin D Deficiency Menopause
Old Age Decreased Stomach Acidity
Rapid Intestinal Transit Time

Environmentally Sensitive Coral

Daily Coral products are produced from land deposits of Sango coral, thereby preserving the unique ecosystem of coral reefs. Live coral reefs are declining on a worldwide basis and will continue to do so if people are not careful. Even dead coral is important for the propagation of new coral, because the coral larvae are deposited in the dead coral and grow to maturity there. Some companies dredge the underwater reefs to obtain coral: a practice that destroys coral for future generations and yields an inferior product. Only coral from land deposits on coral reef islands are free from modern pollutants and environmentally responsible.

"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea--whether it is to sail or to watch it--we are going back from whence we came." John F. Kennedy


Nutrition from the Sea

The ocean is a teaming broth of nutrients and life forms. The tiny plankton, colorful corals and magnificent whales all depend on the ocean supplying life giving minerals. The tiny, delicate, corals with their waving tentacles are among the most beautiful of all ocean creatures. As corals absorb the ocean nutrients they build a skeleton that is used as a base for future generations of corals. Over thousands of years the coral reefs of the Pacific Ocean have gradually developed into large rock-like islands, rich in all the mineral nutrients needed by the human body. Daily Manufacturing offers the highest quality coral mineral supplements available.
