Facts you should know about Calcium:
Q: What does it mean when the label says "Elemental Calcium"? A: Elemental Calcium is a term used for pure calcium. However, pure calcium is not available in nature. When purchasing calcium supplements, be sure to look for the elemental calcium content, not the total content.
Q: Why is this so important?
A: It is important that your supplement be bio-available which means it can be absorbed and used by your body. Example: A tablet that contains 1250 mg of calcium carbonate, actually contains 500 mg of elemental calcium, plus 750 mg of "carbonate". After you take the product, these are separated with the carbonate being digested and the elemental calcium portion entering the blood stream to be used in biochemical functions such as building strong bones.
An honest label clearly represents the actual amount of elemental calcium the product will provide. Some products, although technically not mislabeled, appear to offer much more calcium than is actually provided and is very often misunderstood by consumers. Tropical Oasis believes in giving the consumer the most accurate information to allow the consumer to make informed choices.

Health Notes

Calcium

Calcium
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Calcium is the most abundant, essential mineral in the human body. Of the two to three pounds of calcium contained in the average body, 99% is located in the bones and teeth. Calcium is needed to form bones and teeth and is also required for blood clotting, transmission of signals in nerve cells, and muscle contraction. The importance of calcium for preventing osteoporosis is probably its most well-known role.

    Comments about Tropical Oasis™ Liquid Calcium Magnesium:

    Because my daughters' mitochondrial disease/genetic specialist prescribed magnesium we have tried a couple different brands. One of the others was so thick that they had difficulty swallowing it, even though it had a good flavor. The pill form of magnesium was not disolving at all. They love this brand! It swallows easily and tastes delicious.
