Shigechiyo Izumi, the oldest living person according to the Guinness book of World Records, is over 115 years old and stopped working at the age of 105. He is in amazing health and is physically active each day, residing on the Sango Coral islands around Okinawa. Izumi's secret has been revealed by medical tests, many believe the consumption of coral calcium creates this unprecedented health and longevity with strength of mind and body intact.
The Sango islands were formed from Sango Coral reefs which have a chemical composition similar to human bones. The rain water naturally percolates through these reefs and accumulates various minerals and elements. The water becomes rich in essential vitamins and has a pH value between 7 and 8.5, indicating high alkalinity, it contains a high level of coral calcium.
Of over 2500 species of corals, Sango coral is the only one of its kind to have these supreme qualities. It occurs in abundance only around Okinawa, Japan. Today, over 4 million Japanese are consuming coral calcium capsules daily, as a result of efforts by the Japanese government who authorized mining of Sango Coral sand for coral calcium over a decade ago. This operation is very carefully monitored so that no living coral is damaged. The process extracts, pulverizes and treats the Sango Coral rich in calcium, magnesium and trace minerals to produce coral calcium capsules. The result when consumed raises the pH level of the body to a healthy alkalinity.
Several other cultures around the world who enjoy longevity are Titicacas of Peru, Azerbaijans, Armenians, Hunzas of Pakistan and Tibetans. Many attribute this to drinking â the molten glacier water--which contains crushed rocks in the glacial ice, it is white like milk. A scientific assumption is that consumption of calcium whether coral calcium or in other forms is beneficial in prolonging human life.
Coral calcium is full of trace minerals, the major ones being calcium and magnesium. Humankind has been depleted of micronutrient elements essential for proper functioning of body cells. Essential minerals must first be present in the soil to be absorbed into fruits, vegetables and other edible natural food. In contrast coral Calcium consists of 75 trace minerals that are naturally ionized which results in better absorption by the human body. Over 200 diseases are linked to mineral deficiency including diabetes, cancer, heart disease, gall bladder and kidney stones and arthritis. Coral calcium, by providing essential minerals helps in keeping the pH balance in human body.
pH in normal terms means potential hydrogen. It is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration in a fluid. pH is measured on a scale of 14, 7 being the midway or neutral. A pH value below 7 indicates acidic and above 7 indicates alkaline. When a fluid is acidic, it is oxygen deprived. A human body is said to be non-diseased only when the pH value of bodily fluid is alkaline measuring between 7 and 8 on the pH scale. The normal pH value of blood is between 7.35 and 7.45. If it drops below 6.8 or rises above 7.8, life becomes non- existent.
Coral calcium increases the oxygen level in the body enabling it to dump and release the accumulative toxic waste. Drinking oxygen rich spring or mineral water with a high pH level combined with coral calcium and other minerals arms, the human body with disease fighting abilities, naturally.
