Calcium is a nutritionally important mineral and a chemical element.

    Coral calcium: Coral calcium is made from ground up dead coral reefs. Coral calcium has many trace minerals, which vary from batch to batch. The trace minerals slightly increase the amount of calcium absorbed by the human body. Large amounts of magnesium interfere with the absorption of calcium. Avoid coral calcium with lead.
